The World Within The Word: Essays.
by [Literary Essays] Gass, William.

Publisher Information:
Knopf, New York: 1978.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This copy is signed by Gass on the title page. In this sequel to Fiction & the Figures of Life, critic and thinker William Gass examines literature, culture, writers (their lives and works), and the nature and uses of language and the written word. Included are discussions of Valéry, Henry Miller, Sartre, Freud, Faulkner, suicide, "art and order," and the transformation of language into poetry and fiction. Gass's clarity of writing, the sinuousness of his philosophy, the originality of his vision-make each essay a searching revelation of its subject, as well as an example of Gass's own singular artistry.
