Exhibition: William H. Gass: The Soul Inside the Sentence
Opens March 11 and runs through early July
Olin Library's Ginkgo Reading Room & Grand Staircase Lobby
Curated by the Libraries' Manuscripts unit, "William H. Gass: The Soul Inside the Sentence" highlights each of the acclaimed prose stylist's many books as well as materials drawn from his life more broadly. Included in the exhibition are items related to Gass's education, World War II navy experience, teaching, photography, and bibliophilism. A digital exhibit will soon follow, with audio and video elements as well as a closer look at the drafts, correspondence, ephemera, and other items in the William H. Gass Papers. The image at left is part of a diagram that Gass drew while writing his magnum opus, The Tunnel. It is one of the many items on display in Olin Library.
