Description

A brilliantly argued defence of the importance of creativity in our increasingly money-orientated society, The Gift is a modern classic. It is even more relevant now than when it originally appeared twenty years ago. One of the most acclaimed books of the year, beloved by artists, writers and thinkers, The Gift will transform the way you look at the world.

Author Biography

Lewis Hyde was born in Boston and studied at the Universities of Minnesota and Iowa. In addition to The Gift, he is the author of Trickster Makes This World, a portrait of the disruptive imagination all cultures need if they are to remain lively and open to change. Editor of On the Poetry of Allen Ginsberg and The Essays of Henry D Thoreau, Hyde is now writing a defence of the 'cultural commons', that vast store of ideas and art we have inherited from the past. A MacArthur Fellow and former director of creative writing at Harvard, Hyde is currently the Professor of Creative Writing at Kenyon College in Ohio.
