Library Journal
Debuting in 1956, this volume contains 42 essays by the literati of American, English, and European letters, dating back to Melville and his buddy Hawthorne, Dickens, and Goethe, to Conrad, Flaubert, Dostoevski, Poe, Twain, and Kipling, on up to Woolf and Hemingway. Lots of big shots discuss everything from Christmas to bullfighting, with a leaning toward literary matters. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
