About this product
- DescriptionA scintillating collection of essays on language from one of literature's most supple minds In The Night Sky, her first work of essays, acclaimed poet Ann Lauterbach writes of the ways in which art and poetry are integral and necessary to human conversation. At the center of the book is a series of seven essays, by turns meditative and polemical, that articulate the interstices between Lauterbach's poetics and her experience. She advocates an active encounter with language, at once imaginative and practical, and argues for the importance of art to the well- being of a democratic society. Lauterbach's nimble and glittering (Booklist) writings bring us to a new understanding of the relationship between self-kwledge and cultural meaning, as well as demonstrating the ways in which contemporary philosophy and theory might be integrated with practical kwledge.
