"Encountering his work one is reminded of how exciting literary modernism can be, how much pleasure it can afford, and how far from moribund are the concerns and methods of Joyce, Pound, and the rest of the modernist gang...And, for those who have yet to discover and jubilate in Davenport's work, this collection superseded earlier anthologies as the most convenient place to start."Vom Verlag:
For "The Death of Picasso, " Guy Davenport has gathered 27 essays and stories from throughout his career. The whole stands as his choice of the pieces he would have us read today if we are curious about what he's been up to all this time. The result is an exciting and invigorating selection, a testament to one of the prose masters at work today. As the "Louisville Courier-Journal noted, " "Guy Davenport has few peers. Who can match his broad erudition, his mastery of forms--poetry, short fiction, essay, translation--and his wizardry with language?"
