The Craft of Fiction by Percy Lubbock

The Classic Critique of Fiction So Good It Was Scapegoated No more substantial or more charming volume of criticism has been published in our time. To say that this is the best book on the subject is probably true but it is more to the point to say that it is the only one. -Times Literary Supplement The reigning masterpiece on the creation and criticism of fiction, The Craft of Fiction is a seminal important work by essayist, and literary critic Percy Lubbock. Lubbock's outlook in this publication is an obvious extension to that of Henry James and he works to illustrate the craft by referencing many important and classic novels including Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary and Henry James' The Ambassadors. The Craft of Fiction is highly recommended for those who enjoy literary criticism works. Every every writer needs a copy on his shelves for ready reference. Get Your Copy Now.
