First Edition Thus , so stated. Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of spine lean; a couple of nicks at the mid backstrip; a small, rather faint smudge to the fore-edge; else flawless. The binding is perfectly secure; the text is clean. No longer pristine, but remains very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xvii, 327 pages. Trade Paperback.

Synopsis : Discusses the argument that a work of art is essentially a gift and not a commodity.
A propos de l'auteur: Lewis Hyde was born in Boston in 1945 and studied at both Minnesota and Iowa universities. His hugely acclaimed essay, "Alcohol and Poetry: John Berryman and the Booze Talking," in part sprang out of his experiences as an alcoholism counselor, but he is also a highly regarded poet in his own right whose poetry and essays have been widely published. He is a MacArthur Fellow, a former director of creative writing at Harvard and, alongside The Gift, he is the author of the equally acclaimed Trickster Makes This World. He lives in Ohio, where he is completing a third book.
