Habitations of the Word: Essays.
by Gass, William.

Publisher Information:
Simon & Schuster, New York: 1985.

First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This collection brings together 12 of Gass' literary essays that take risks, make connections, give off sparks and illustrate Gass's love of language. Gass used Freudian concepts to compare the art of writing to the art of becoming civilized: writing parallels the transformation of raw instinct into shared expression. William Gass takes off where Montaigne, Emerson and Virginia Woolf left off, addressing where literature departs from the external world to invent a world of its own. This copy is signed by Gass!.
