The Flower and the Leaf. A Contemporary Record of American Writing Since 1941. Edited by Donald Faulkner.
by [Literary Essays] Cowley, Malcolm.

Publisher Information:
Viking,, New York:: 1985..

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. The Flower and the Leaf is a collection of short essays that Cowley wrote between 1941 to the early 1980s. The essays cover many literary topics from: authors, works, intellectual issues, and history. They are personal in tone and Cowley's love for books and writers emanates throughout, even when he is critically analyzing a work or a writer. Some of the writers he discusses: T.S.Eliot, Faulkner, Cheever, Hawthorne, Whitman, Stein, just to name a few; covers the wide ranging landscape of American literature. Not only does Cowley write about his contemporaries (those identified with the lost generation) but also those of more recent times and those writers which defined American writing.
