Abstract:

An iconic collection that showcases Gardner as a master craftsman navigating an uncertain worldIn this exceptional book, author John Gardner explores the literary form as a vehicle of vision, and creates heroes that personify his tremendous artistic ideals: A Boston schoolmaster abandons his dreams of owning a farmhouse in rural Illinois only to be taken on a voyage across the seas and into self-discovery, faith, and love; an artist & rsquo;s rapturous enthusiasm inspires an aging university professor to approach life & rsquo;s chaotic moments as opportunities for creation. Each of these stories is wonderful in its own right, and provides valuable insight into the author & rsquo;s literary beliefs. Written just prior to his critical masterwork, On Moral Fiction, The King & rsquo;s Indian is a must-read for those interested in learning more about Gardner & rsquo;s highly controversial artistic philosophies. This ebook features a new illustrated biography of John Gardner, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Gardner family and the University of Rochester Archives.
