Unacknowledged Legislation (Revised edition)

by

A celebration of Percy Shelley's assertion that' poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world', these thirty-eight essays on writers from Oscar Wilde to Salman Rushdie dispel the myth of politoics as a stone tied to the neck of literature; Norman Podhoretz's 'blood crosswords'. Instead Hitchens argues that when all parties in the state were agreed on a matter, it was the individual pens that created the space for a true moral argument.
