The King's Indian: Stories and Tales (original 1976; edición 1974)
por John Gardner, Herbert L. Fink (Ilustrador)
The King's Indian por John Gardner (1976)
An iconic collection that showcases Gardner as a master craftsman navigating an uncertain world In this exceptional book, author John Gardner explores the literary form as a vehicle of vision, and creates heroes that personify his tremendous artistic ideals: A Boston schoolmaster abandons his dreams of owning a farmhouse in rural Illinois only to be taken on a voyage across the seas and into self-discovery, faith, and love; an artist's rapturous enthusiasm inspires an aging university professor to approach life's chaotic moments as opportunities for creation. Each of these stories is wonderful in its own right, and provides valuable insight into the author's literary beliefs. Written just prior to his critical masterwork, On Moral Fiction, The King's Indian is a must-read for those interested in learning more about Gardner's highly controversial artistic philosophies. This ebook features a new illustrated biography of John Gardner, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Gardner family and the University of Rochester Archives.
