Art as Gift

I have worked on some Trickster material recently, and dug out an unread copy of Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art by Lewis Hyde which I have started reading (having bought it about a year ago).

I also have a copy of The Gift: How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World , (sometimes subtitled The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property) a book about art as gift rather than commodity. (half read).

If you don't have time to read lots, try listening to 20 minutes of a radio interview with him, to get a glimpse of the work.

Apparently his current work-in-progress has the title Cultural Commons.

You could also look at Cultural Commons where Lewis Hyde did the guest blog for July...
Look at these other names for Tricksters, Fools, Clowns, etc.
