Illuminations: Great Writers on Writing
Edited by Christina Davis & Christopher Edgar 120 pp.
Illuminations is a dazzling behind-the-scenes look at the art of writing, with 55 thought-provoking passages by great writers from around the world and throughout history, including Dante, Sei Shonagon, Franz Kafka, Edgar Allan Poe, Marina Tsvetaeva, Jorge Luis Borges, Edith Wharton, John Keats, Leo Tolstoy, and Virginia Woolf.
