Great Writers on the Letters of the Alphabet

Words are the tools of 'to be' of expression. They are completely built on the fact that you 'are,' and in order to express it, you have built a little alphabet, and you make your words from it.


- Marcel Duchamp -

Great Writers on the Letters of the Alphabet

Late in life the English poet, novelist, essayist, and social justice advocate Sir Stephen Spender asked artist David Hockney to draw each letter of the alphabet, then invited twenty-nine of the greatest writers in the English language to each contribute a short original text for one of the letters. Among them: Susan Sontag, Seamus Heaney, Martin Amis, John Updike, Joyce Carol Oates, Ted Hughes, Ian McEwan, Erica Jong, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Iris Murdoch. The result was the 1991 out-of-print Hockney's Alphabeta sublime addition to the canon of imaginative alphabet books, with all proceeds going toward AIDS research and care for people living and dying with AIDS. Enjoy those available here on Brain Pickings!

Be The Change

Douglas Tompkins: A Wild Legacy

 
Douglas Tompkins, conservationist and co-founder of North Face and Esprit, preserved millions of acres of beautiful land from human exploitation. This moving tribute to Tompkins shows us his inspiring legacy of conservation and his passion for the wild earth. His love of exploring the outdoors led him to become an advocate for the land. A successful businessman in early adulthood, he sold his share of North Face and used this money to purchase wild tracts of land throughout South America, preserving this land for generations to come.
