Six Memos for The Next Millenium.
by Calvino, Italo.

Publisher Information:
Harvard University Press, Cambridge: 1988.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Calvino was one of the world's best storytellers and in 1985 he prepared a series of lectures on the making of literature. Published her for the first time, Calvino pinpoints for future generations the six universal values he believed were critical to the appreciation of literature. These values include: 'lightness', 'quickness', 'exactitude', 'visibility', 'multiplicity' and 'consistency.' Together these memos to writers of the future provide is with Calvino's eloquent 'defense of literature.'
