Oh. Another book from my shelves!
These past few years have been quite intense for me. I knew it was all a test, a lesson that had to be learned. Just before I sit the final exam, I’m getting nervous.
The Trickster comes with many names, faces, genders (!!)
Is he still in charge?
There is no Multiple Choice in this exam.
And cheating is punishable by…
NO PRESSURE then!
Trickster disrupted the world around him, and in doing so he reshaped it. Playful, mischievous, subversive, amoral, tricksters are a great bother to have around, but they are also indispensable heroes of culture. (WTF?)
Trickster Makes This World revisits the stories of Coyote, Eshu and Hermes and holds them up against the life and work of more recent creators: Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Hong Kingston and others. Authoritative in its scholarship, supple and dynamic in its style, Trickster Makes This World encourages you to think and see afresh.
