Selected Essays of Wilson Harris brings together nineteen lectures, addresses and essays to make available in a single comprehensive reader Harris's full range of writings on subjects encompassing the literate imagination; traditions of fable and legend in Central and South America; the North American literary imagination, from Poe and Melville to Toomer, Ralph Ellison, Faulkner, and Jean Rhys; and inheritances and legacies of writers of the postcolonial diaspora.
