"Wilson Harris is one of the outstanding literary innovators of the century. His novels date from Palace of the Peacock (1960) to Jonestown (1996). This volume matches Harris's career in the novel with his critical writings: from 1961 to the present day. Selected Essays of Wilson Harris brings together nineteen lectures, addresses and essays to make available in a single comprehensive reader Harris's full range of writings on subjects encompassing the literate imagination; traditions of fable and legend in Central and South America; the North American literary imagination, from Poe and Melville to Toomer, Ralph Ellison, Faulkner, and Jean Rhys; and inheritances and legacies of writers of the postcolonial diaspora."--Jacket

"The image of a perilous voyage up-river, portaging past rapids deep into the heart of the South American rain-forest, will be a sign to Wilson Harris's readers that his new novel encompasses artistic concerns which have preoccupied him throughout his writing life, from the dazzling Palace of the Peacock onwards. His story is one of exploration, quest, danger, adultery, breakdown and violent death and the location the Guyana of the Quartet. Of that work the critic Wilfred Cartey has written: 'Harris imbues the immediate landscape with a quality of the marvellous, transforming history into fable, fable into myth and legend. Thus, the whole novelistic canvas takes on emblematic qualities and, trembling through the transformative process, merges together the real, the marvellous, the mythic and the legendary.' The same applies here and throughout his oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET
