Bibliographic Details


Title: Finding a Form: Essays.

Publisher: Knopf, New York

Publication Date: 1996

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition

Description:

A Near Fine unread copy with a small remainder dot to the top edge in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. In this collection of essays, William Gass writes about literary language, about history, about the avant-garde, about minimalism's brief vogue, about the use of the present tense in fiction (Is it due to the lack of both a sense of history and a belief in the future?), about biography as a form, about exile - spiritual and geographical - and he examines the relationship of the writer's life to the writer's work. Gass writes with wit and intelligence as he sifts through cultural issues of our time and contemplates how written language, whether a sentence or an entire book, is a container of consciousness, the gateway to another's mind that we enter for a while and make our own.
