Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------------IN PRAISE OF BLOOD SPORTS AND OTHER ESSAYS by Walter Sullivan. These nine articles by a Vanderbilt University professor ( Death by Melancholy ) reprinted from Sewanee Review , Southern Review , etc., take as their underlying theme the element of the sacred in literature. Commentaries focus on the religious and social attitudes of Andrew Lytle, Cormac McCarthy, Bobbie Ann Mason, Marion Montgomery, Flannery O'Connor, Allen Tate, Peter Taylor and Richard Weaver, including their associations with Catholicism and Southern agrarianism. Other pieces discuss Joseph Conrad's Secret Agent, Elizabeth Bowen's sense of place and the failure of her later books, Evelyn Waugh's Catholicism and the religious impulse in William Golding's novels. The title essay explores the sense of the sacred in the literature of Caroline Gordon and Andrew Lytle, and differences between the fiction of such sports as hunting and fishing and that of baseball. Graceful reflections. You are bidding on the stated Louisiana First Edition from 1990. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative.
