From the Publisher
From the author of The Messiah of Stockholm and Art and Ardor comes
a new collection of supple, provocative, and intellectually
dazzling essays. In Metaphor & Memory, Cynthia Ozick writes
about Saul Bellow and Henry James, William Gaddis and Primo Levi.
She observes the tug-of-war between written and spoken language and
the complex relation between art''s contrivances and its moral
truths. She has given us an exceptional book that demonstrates the
possibilities of literature even as it explores them.
