Abstract:

"In his last book, Edward Said looks at a selection of essays, poems, novels, films, and operas to determine what late style may explain about the evolution of the creative life. He discusses how the approaching death of an artist can make its way "with anachronism and anomaly" into his work, as was the case in the late work of Thomas Mann, Richard Strauss, Jean Genet, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, and C.P. Cavafy. Said examinees Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Genet's Le captif amoureux and Les paravents, Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, Visconti's film of Lampedusa's The Leopard, Euripides' The Bacchae and Iphigenia at Aulis, and Thomas Mann's Death in Venice, among other works."--Jacket.
