bookshelves: theory
Read from July 11 to November 17, 2010

Lyrical essays include excerpts from "The Myth of Sisyphus" and other books; my two favorites are the one on his hometown in winter and the one on returning home, disillusioned, only to find redemption in the sudden sunlight rounding a streetcorner. Critical essays include reviews of Rene Char and other contemporaries, an introduction to his stage adaptation of a Faulkner novel, and thoughts on Melville. Also included: a section of interviews and correspondence, like letters to Barthes and Sartre.
