In this fascinating book, Edward Said looks at the creative contradictions that often mark the late works of literary and musical artists. Said shows how the approaching death of an artist can make its way into his work, examining essays, poems, novels, films, and operas by such artists as Beethoven, Genet, Mozart, Lampedusa, Euripides, Cavafy, and Mann, among others. He uncovers the conflicts and complexity that often distinguish artistic lateness, resulting in works that stood in direct contrast to what was popular at the time and were forerunners of what was to come in each artist's discipline- works of true genius. Eloquent and impassioned, brilliantly reasoned and revelatory, "On Late Style "is Edward Said's own great last work.

Edward W. Said was one of the world's most celebrated, outspoken, and influential public intellectuals until his death in 2003. He is the author of more than twenty books, including Humanism and Democratic Criticism(Columbia, 2004), Freud and the Non-European(2003), Power, Politics, and Culture(2001), Culture and Imperialism(1993), and Orientalism(1979).
