The Non-Works of Samuel Tyldsley
edited by R. Gui Le Blanc
"The Non-Works of Samuel
Tyldsley" is a critical study of the unpublished works of a mid-twentieth
century Canadian author. Statistical Information follows this description.
We feel the work's main
appeal lies in the subjectivity of the writings of Samuel Tyldsley.
More universal in theme and more emotional and abstract than concrete
in execution, they are easily related to by the reader. The use of
archaic English in these writings not only adds charm, but balances their
subjectivity with an air of authority.
The manuscript is visually
appealing owing to the illuminated section. This section consists
of twenty-five color plates wherein the illustrations interact, both in
theme and form, with the poetry. This section has been a favorite
of readers of this volume.
Other appealing features
of this manuscript are its brevity (a quick read), its novelty, humor,
contrasting literary styles and its ability to be enjoyed on different
intellectual levels. It targets the intellectually curious as well
as the emotionally erratic. It has appealed to PHDs and janitors
and many more in between, among whom you may soon be counted.
