Anemones My Footstool: Essays Literary, Social, Cultural, and Polemical
Trim: 6.14 x 9.21
ANEMONES MY FOOTSTOOL is a book of ten essays by Bert Hornback, about novels and poems, words and the way we use them, and the world we live in. The individual essays take their titles from the works of William Blake, Seamus Heaney, Charles Dickens, Galway Kinnell, William Butler Yeats, Gerard Manley Hopkins, an anonymous “jest” from the seventeenth century, and Wendell Berry. A lively, thoughtful, and entertaining mixture of argument and narrative, the book makes pleasurable and perhaps profitable reading.
