From the preface by Everson: "In this book I have attempted to delineate the Western archetype by examining one of its most salient features: the creative writer. Abstracting from his personal achievement I treat him as a distinct species, a phenomenon spanning several generations of Western experience, to arrive as a late but authentic symbol in the pantheon of American images we have developed over our two centuries of national existence." Very good. Item #1407
