About this product
- DescriptionWhat happens when civilization crumbles? What apocalyptic events wait in the wings? These are the questions asked by Yeats's poem 'Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen'. Michael Wood explores the life of this poem through its form and historical context, examining how it seeks to make sense of a chaotic world whilst preserving the disorder of experience.
- Author BiographyMichael Wood was born and educated in England but has worked for much of his life in the United States, first at Columbia University and then at Princeton. He has written books on Luis Bunuel, Franz Kafka, Vladimir Nabokov, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, as well as The Road to Delphi, a study of the ancient and continuing allure of oracles. Among his other works are America in the Movies and Children of Silence. A fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, a member of the American Philosophical Society and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he is a regular contributor to the London Review of Books and the New York Review of Books. His most recent book is Literature and the Taste of Knowledge. He is the editor of Edward Said's posthumous Late Style: Music and Literature against the Grain (2006).
