Barnett, George L.  
Charles Lamb: The Evolution of Elia
 Picture
Publisher: Indiana University Press, 1964 Bloomington, IN.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Lamb's essays, numbering well over a hundred, are peculiarly appropriate to all times and all places because they are devoid of contemporary considerations. They are as untouched by reference to the momentous political events shaking Europe in Lamb's day as are the novels of Jane Austen. Their subject is man and human nature, and the appeal is to all the senses. Lamb was not a professional author writing for other authors, but a working man writing for the average reader - of his own day, or today. This book is concerned with the development of Lamb's career as a writer and of his essays in particular.." xi + 286 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition; some shelfwear; discoloration to inside covers and endpapers. No dust jacket.
