About this title:

Synopsis:

Collection of essays drawn from Schopenhauer's "Parerga" released in 1851 on various topics connected to the Art of Literature.

From the Back Cover: foundation that reality is but an extension of our own will, and that human life is characterized chiefly by misery.

In this essay, translated by THOMAS BAILEY SAUNDERS (1860-1928) and first published in English in the 1890s, Schopenhauer offers his thoughts:

* on authorship, and which kinds of authors are "the ruin of literature" * on style, and how the mediocre writer mangles it * on the study of the Latin language, and how its decline has been a "misfortune" * on men of learning, and how students fail themselves * on criticism, and why true critical faculty is rare * and more.

Students of philosophy and of 19th-century intellectualism will find this a fascinating read.
