Dance of the Nomad: A Study of the Selected Notebooks of A. D. Hope by Ann McCulloch
English | 1 Oct. 2005 | ISBN: 1740761685 | 350 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The notebooks of A. D. Hope are a portrait of the contradictory essence of the poet’s intellect and character. Shot through with threads of self-awareness and revelation, Hope imbued his notebooks with irony and humour, forming them as a celebration of the joy and terror of human existence. Stripped of intimate revelation, the entries give witness to Hope’s view that art is a superior force in the creation of new being and values, and a guide for the conduct of our lives.
