Presents Richard Ellmann's "Along The Riverrun". An indispensable collection. Twenty-four brilliant essays by one of the greatest literary biographers of our time. In these enjoyable lectures, articles, prefaces, and reviews covering a span of thirty years, a great literary biographer writes with insight, wisdom, humor, and charm about the subjects of his major works - Wilde, Yeats, and Joyce - as well as about Washington Irving, George Eliot, Henry James, Ezra Pound, D. H. Lawrence, T. S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, Ernest Hemingway, Frank O'Connor, Samuel Beckett, and Henri Michaux. Additional contents include an essay on the Edwardians, a lecture on Freud and literary biography, and a previously unpublished study of the background to Joyce's play "Exiles", demonstrating that exile was a state to which Joyce was peculiarly suited. An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Ellmann collectors. This title is a late-modern classic.

One of the greatest literary biographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RICHARD ELLMANN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 039457768X. Bookseller Inventory # 1792
