More About The Gift by Lewis Hyde
 
 
 
Overview

"A manifesto of sorts for anyone who makes art and] cares for it." --Zadie Smith

"The best book I know of for talented but unacknowledged creators. . . . A masterpiece." --Margaret Atwood

"No one who is invested in any kind of art . . . can read The Gift and remain unchanged." --David Foster Wallace


By now a modern classic, The Gift is a brilliantly orchestrated defense of the value of creativity and of its importance in a culture increasingly governed by money and overrun with commodities. This book is even more necessary today than when it first appeared.

An illuminating and transformative book, and completely original in its view of the world, The Gift is cherished by artists, writers, musicians, and thinkers. It is in itself a gift to all who discover the classic wisdom found in its pages.
