InTrickster Makes This World, Lewis Hyde brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology. He first visits the old storiesHermes in Greece, Eshu in West Africa, Krishna in India, Coyote in North America, among othersand then holds them up against the lives and work of more recent creators: Picasso, Duchamp, Ginsberg, John Cage, and Frederick Douglass. Twelve years after its first publication,Trickster Makes This Worldauthoritative in its scholarship, loose-limbed in its stylehas taken its place among the great works of modern cultural criticism.

This new edition includes an introduction by Michael Chabon.

Brilliant . . . By the time [Hyde] is done he has folded language culture, and the very habit of being human into his ken. The New Yorker

Hyde is one of our true superstars of nonfiction. David Foster Wallace
