Summary
"This collective assessment of the achievement of Robertson Davies addresses the basic problems in reading his artfulness, as a moralist committed to the practices of doubling, disguise, irony and paradox, and dwelling in "gaps" or spaces "in between." The essays present new insights on a broad range of topics of Davies' oeuvre and represent one of the first major discussions devoted to Davies' work since his death in 1995"--Jacket
