Description
Information
Kermode has often said that much of his best work has been done at shorter length, in the essays he has written on a very wide range of subjects for literary journals of one kind or another.

'Pleasing Myself' brings together the best of these pieces from the last decade, on topics as diverse as Donne, Yeats, Howard Hodgkin, gnoticism, the sea and money, as well as further thoughts on Shakespeare. Each of them is concise and entertaining, and has something original or pithy to say about its subject.

They will bring as much pleasure to their readers as Kermode unashamedly admits the writing of them brought to the author.
