Beschreibung

In a powerfully written book, the author of The Savage God examines night in all its aspects. From the neon-lit brilliance of Las Vegas to the shadowy underworld patrolled by the police to a scientific sleep laboratory, Alvarez shows how "night horrors" inspired and terrified Coleridge, how dreams liberated the minds of Stevenson and the Surrealists, and how his own childhood fears provided a gateway to the secret world of the unconscious. Illustrations.

Portrait

A. Alvarez is a highly acclaimed poet, novelist, literary critic, and author. He lives in London.

Pressestimmen

A book lyrical and scientific, personal and scrupulously researched. . . . [Alvarez's] precision of expression is a delight. --Penelope Mesic
