Pieces of my Mind surveys nearly half a century of writing by Frank Kermode - Britain's most distinguished and eloquent literary critic. This selection of his writings from over forty years, including extracts from his most famous books as well as his most significant reviews and occasional pieces, shows the diverse subjects that have captured his attention - from Shakespeare, Wallace Stevens and the Bible to Botticelli, opera, memory and forgetting.
