February 1994) w/ full no. line showing 1st printing, handsome NEW mylar-protected jacket w/ sharp NEW edges & corners showing orig. $30.00 price at top right inside front flyleaf, NEW cover w/ natural linen wrapping spine & extending 1.75" onto front & back panels covered in SUPERB silk-finish rag paper, IMMACULATE text-block exterior w/ smooth-cut top & bottom edges & w/ cut-page-style deckle side-edging, NEW sewn binding w tight signatures & pale-gold cloth bands at spine-caps, IMPECCABLE slate-blue card-stock end-papers, PRISTINE interior handsomely printed on excellent unblemished paper * 9.50" x 6.50 x 1.86", 1.32 kg, liv+777 (831) pp. * For more than 400 years, the personal essay has been one of the richest & most vibrant of all literary forms. Distinguished from the detached formal essay by its friendly, conversational tone, its loose structure, & its drive toward candor & self-disclosure, the personal essay seizes on the minutiae of daily life (vanities, fashions, foibles, oddballs, seasonal rituals, love & disappointment, the pleasures of solitude, reading, taking a walk) to offer insight into the human condition & the great social & political issues of the day. "The Art of the Personal Essay" is the 1st anthology to celebrate this fertile genre. By presenting more than 75 personal essays, including influential forerunners from ancient Greece, Rome & the Far East, masterpieces from the dawn of the personal essay in the 16th century, & a wealth of the finest personal essays from the last 4 centuries, editor Phillip Lopate, himself an acclaimed essayist, displays the tradition of the personal essay in all its historical grandeur, depth & diversity. * "A wonderful book. The most charming smorgasbord imaginable of essays from around the world." - Diane Cole, USA Today * "Without a doubt, this is the most nourishing essay collection I've read in years." - Susan Burmeister-Brown, Portland Oregonian. * "A labor of deeply felt love & keenly honed scholarship by an essay authority who knows his territory down to his bones." - Christian Science Monitor * "The best available [essay anthology] no matter how crowded the field." - Chicago Tribune * "The striking thing is how much Lopate has managed to pack in, & how high a standard he has managed to maintain." - John Gross, New York Newsday * "Packed w/ personality & beguiling first-person prose (& w/) reminders of the perils & pleasures of the craft." - The Wall Street Journal.
