Cultural Writing. Essays. Menard Press is proud to publish two fine and contrasting essays by this singular figure and one of the most significant British poets "...to be found on that important frontier between mainstream and the experimental, flinging out messages in bottles into a sea of unknowing"--Anthony Rudlof. The poet, novelist and critic Alan Wall supplies an introduction at once both critique and homage.
If from the Distance Paperback edition by Christopher Middleton
The Swiss writer Robert Walser is one of the quiet geniuses of twentieth-century literature. Largely self-taught and altogether indifferent to worldly success, Walser wrote a range of short stories, essays, as well as four novels, of which Jakob von Gunten is widely recognized as the finest. The book is a young man's inquisitive and irreverent account of life in what turns out to be the most...
After a wandering, precarious life during which he produced poems, essays, stories, and novels, Robert Walser (1878-1956) entered an insane asylum, saying, 'I am not here to write, but to be mad'. This work features a collection of fifty translations of short prose pieces that cover the middle to later years of the writer's oeuvre.
This novel takes the form of the journal of a young man attending a school for butlers, the Benjamenta Institute. First published as "Jakob Von Gunten" in 1909, the book is now the subject of a Channel 4 feature film.
A collection of over two hundred of Nietzsche's letters. It offers a representative body of correspondence on subjects of main concern to him - philosophy, history, morals, music and literature. It also includes letters of biographical interest which, in Middleton's words, 'mark the stresses and turnings of his life'.
Serpentine was first published in by Oasis Books, London, in 1985. It received little distribution and minimal notice at the time, somewhat to the author's distress, and the publisher's regret. It has never reappeared complete, although selections have appeared in subsequent compilations.
