Description: Anansi, Toronto, 1982, first edition.. 199 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0887840930 "Perhaps the most influential critical thinker of our century, Northrop Frye has long commented upon the cultural life of his own country. (This book) continues Frye's extraordinary enquiry into Canada's literature, universities, social assumptions and national character. In thirteen essays and addresses, Frye covers a broad range of subject matter, from future shock to the meaning of Canada's history; from student politics to the idea of the university; from regional verse to Marshall McLuhan and the age of television. Provocative, splendidly written and quite entertaining, (it) shows Northrop Frye at his most accessible: a book of prime importance to every North American." Faint erased pencil marks on rear pastedown, tiny foxing mark on fore-edge of textblock, very small bump and light fading at bottom edge of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, a few tiny closed tears, moderate rubbing causing some color loss. Very Good/Good.
