Publisher: Noonday Press, NY [1959].

I am not hesitant today to consider the surrealists and their antecedents as a liberating force against the neo-nineteenth-century aspects of much of the literature of our time.'

From the DJ: "Many of the world's great thinkers have insisted that each human activity is closely bound up with every other. If they are right, our reading will not be the harmless and thoroughly independent pastime it may seem. It will have a great deal to do with what we are and what we become. That is the standpoint from which Mr. Belgion discusses novels, biographies, serious books, drama, and poetry in English. ." Shipping weight 2 lbs.

No marks. Binding is miraculously intact. ; This is an actual book from 1692, not a flimsy print-on-demand cheapie.

Brewer, Elisabeth:  
T. H. White's The Once and Future King : Arthurian Studies XXX

Publisher: Woodbridge, D S Brewer, 1993 (1st Edition).
vii + 256pp with 2 pages listing previous titles in the Arthurian Studies series. "....The books which eventually made up 'The Once and Future King' of 1958 appeared in distinctly different editions. In discussing these, Elisabeth Brewer looks at some of the ways in which White drew on his own experience - family, childhood, Cambridge and friendships - at a very deep psychological level, while also incorporating into his story material inspired by his antiquarian pursuits and (with particular reference to the themes of education) by his years as a schoolmaster. She completes her study with an account of White's use of historical material, and the relationship of 'The Once and Future King' to the 'Morte Darthur'." This book is offered at a considerable saving on the publisher's price of £25. Fine cond : fine cond d/w. 9 x 6 inches
