"It is high time to declare roundly what a good many people have long suspected, that E. B. White is the finest essayist in the United States. He says wise things gracefully; he is the master of an idiom at once exact and suggestive, distinguished yet familiar. His style is crisp and tender, and incomparably his own. A city-dwelling Thoreau holed up very frequently on the first page of 'The New Yorker' but from that Tower of Irony remembering Maine, where he lived part of the time, and Walden Pond, where Thoreau lived briefly. One sometimes wonders what Thoreau might have written about, what he might have written like, if he had lived for the most part in New York City a century later than he lived in Concord, Mass. I suspect he would have written about some of the things E. B. White writes about and in something of the way he writes. Here is the Thoreau of our day, the play of mind, the uncorrupted seriousness, the dry unquenchable humor. [The Wonder and Wackiness of Man, Irwin Edman; January 1954] Contains essays, poems, and stories - most of which originally appeared in 'The New Yorker' magazine. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST THUS. N° de ref. de la librería 524BID-0631
