- "This volume of commemorative and celebratory essays, first published in 1974, concentrates on William Empson - the critic, the poet and friend. The papers range from the biographical to the academic, but what every one suggests is the impossibility of separating the man from his work and the 'life' from the 'thought'. This book constitutes an important study of Empson, his work and his impact upon people and literary studies of our time. "--Provided by publisher.
