About This Item

New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux: The Noonday Press, 1993. pp. 229. Wraps illustrated with a photo of a marble head of Antinouos. 'Like waves washing against a pebbled shore, her sentences soothe, then hypnotize; before long the sound of her voice--slightly weary, serenely wise--becomes that of Reason itself . . . [Her essays] display a moralist and critic of remarkable range and sympathy.'--Michael Dirda, The Washington Post Book World. 'It goes without saying that we do not possess a single Greek statue in the state which its contemporaries knew it: we can barely discern, here and there on the hair of a Kore or a Kouros of the sixth century, the traces of reddish color, like palest henna, which attest to their pristine character of painted statues alive with the intense, almost terrifying life of mannequins and idols which also happen to be masterpieces of art. Those hard objects fashioned in imitation of the forms of organic life have, in their own way, undergone the equivalent of fatigue, age, and unahppiness. They have changed in the way time changes us.'--from the title essay.. First Thus. Trade Paperback. As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
