The Gift : How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World

Lewis Hyde

The Gift brilliantly argues for the importance of creativity in our increasingly money-driven society. Reaching deep into literature, anthropology and psychology for striking examples, the heart of Lewis Hydes modern masterpiece is the simple and important idea that a gift can inspire and change our lives, art and culture. Lewis Hyde has been championed by some of the greatest artists of our time. He addresses the questions we face every day in our public and private lives.
