9780133240139: Elephants Teach:Creative Writing (Prentice Hall Studies in Writing and Culture)

This book traces the development of "creative" writing as a classroom subject, the teaching of fiction- and verse-writing; and as a national system for the employment of fiction writers and poets to teach the subject. It answers the questions, "Why has fiction and verse writing come to be called creative?" and "When and why was this term first used?"

Review:

"In clear prose and careful scholarship, David Myers . . . tells the story of how what was supposed to free English literature from the trap of academic disciplines became itself an academic discipline."

"The Elephants Teach is an astonishing piece of work. . . . Under the author's magic it becomes the story of a great part of our culture since the turn of the century." -- from the Foreword by Jacques Barzun

"This material I think should be required for anyone who intends to teach creative writing on the college or university level."--Patrick Bizzaro "College Composition and Communication "

"Myers is thorough, his writing is clear, and the history he has to tell will be to most, if not all, current teachers of creative writing little short of a revelation. . . . This is a book all teachers of creative writing should read."History of Education Quarterly">
