About This Item

The Harvill Press, London, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Very Good. Third Impression . Size: Large Octavo. 433 pages. Dust jacket is in very good condition save a small closed tear at the top of the spine. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. Underlying the exhaustive, critical analysis and the rich historical background is Hughes's own intimately personal relationship to his subject. This is a book informed not only by lifelong love and study, but by his own recent experiences of mortality and death. As such this is a uniquely moving and human book; with the same relentless and fearless intelligence he has brought to every subject he has ever tackled, Hughes here transcends biography to bring us a rich and fiercely brave book about art and life, love and rage, impotence and death. This is one genius writing at full capacity about another-and the result is truly spectacular.
