Arthur Schopenhauer's "The Art of Literature" is a lively, illuminating and brutally honest collection of essays on literary style and values, writers and critics, and the nature of genius. The volume is comprised of eight chapters: "On Authorship," "On Style," "On the Study of Latin," "On Men of Learning," "On Thinking for Oneself," "On Criticism," "On Reputation," and "On Genius." Schopenhauer advises seclusion and independent thought, criticizes Pliny's reading habits, and explains the pitfalls of certain schools of thought and even virtues like modesty. His thought-provoking arguments, caustic wit and accessible style make this a must for any aspiring writer.
