In Trickster Makes This World , Lewis Hyde brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology. He first visits the old stories--Hermes in Greece, Eshu in West Africa, Krishna in India, Coyote in North America, among others--and then holds them up against the lives and work of more recent creators: Picasso, Duchamp, Ginsberg, John Cage, and Frederick Douglass. Twelve years after its first publication, Trickster Makes This World --authoritative in its scholarship, loose-limbed in its style--has taken its place among the great works of modern cultural criticism.

This new edition includes an introduction by Michael Chabon.
