Habitations of the Word: Essaysby William H. Gass
Author William H. Gass analyzes as though under a microscope the many and varied ways writers carpenter structures with words to house language forms. "Using Freudian concepts, he compares the art of writing to the art of becoming civilized: writing parallels the transformation of raw instinct into shared expression. . . . Gass writes with impassioned concern".--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. 288 pp.
