About This Item

Viking Press. Very Good+. 1989. Softcover. 0140114335 . Very nice condition - only light wear overall. "The third volume of the Cornish trilogy revolves around the staging of an unfinished opera by a 19th century composer. Packed with interesting details of opera history and production, boasting some new, eccentric characters, and pulling together Davies's various themes in a harmonic resolution, the novel should satisfy those who will settle for intelligent observations and playful allusions rather than dramatic momentum , " (380noto) ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall .

Synopsis

Robertson Davies (1913-1995) had three successive careers during the time he became an internationally acclaimed author: actor, publisher, and, finally, professor at the University of Toronto. The author of twelve novels and several volumes of essays and plays, he was the first Canadian to be inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
