The Book of Prefaces
Description:
Described as "A Short History of Literate Thought in Words by Great Writers of Four Nations from the 7th to the 20th Century Edited & Glossed by Alasdair Gray Mainly", this impressive anthology grafts "together pieces cut from the corpus of ... mostly the dead whose copyrights have lapsed"! (The prefaces start with early masters such as Caedmon and Bede, work their way through Chaucer, Caxton, Leland et al to Marlowe, Shakespeare, Donne and their contemporaries, on to Dryden and Pope and up through the 18th and 19th Century greats). As with all Gray's work the book itself is a work of art: a visual artist of some merit, Gray sees the book object itself as an important site to work his wonders and this is one of his most ambitious books to date. Beautifully illustrated with distinctive typefaces and "footnoted" throughout in red (these annotations come from Gray and many of the foremost writers in Scotland) with "marginal glosses ... in small type about its book, author, language and events shaping these". After having prepared it for about the last 16 years, this monster 640-page collection of prefaces does not disappoint. It is a remarkable, adventurous journey through some of the most important marginalia of English Lit. and Gray, with his quirky, intelligent and incisive Scottish wit, makes for a wonderful guide. --Mark Thwaite--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
