Over the past three decades, Daniel Mendelsohn has carved a niche of his own with his erudite and inspired nonfiction, winning the National Book Critics Circle Award for The Lost: Searching for Six of Six Million. In the 19 texts collected here, Mendelsohn considers the feminism of Game of Thrones, how Virgil's Aeneid anticipates post-World War II history, and how Ted Hughes sought redemption by translating a play of Euripides about a wayward husband whose wife returns from the dead. Here too are insights on Sappho, Karl Ove Knausgaard, Tom Stoppard, Mary Renaud, and Patrick Leigh Fermor, among others.
