I tried to like this book since it had come so highly recommended and it was in a 25th anniversary edition If it has been in print all those years there must be something to it right Nope First of all it s badly structured The first half is an extended discussion of the concept of gifts vs paying for things in ancient vs modern societies Once you get the basic point that especially older societies exchanged goods and services as gifts not for money and that Hyde thinks that s a better way to do it then you ve got the idea He says that an artist basically has to straddle the world of gifts because hisher art is best thought of as a gift both received and given to the world and the world of commerce gotta pay the rent The second half of the book then talks about Whitman and Pound two worthy poets but hardly connected in any real or useful sense to the foregoing gift discussion Second and my other main complaint about the book is that Hyde beats the gift horse to death He defines ponders muses and ruminates about various aspects of what is after all a pretty simple concept for pages weaving in fairy tales ethnography much of it outdated or inaccurate and random commentary about various writers and artists It s a maddening frustrating book that is simultaneously and less than it aspires to be

I chose this edition because the new one looks like a Valentine s day card I expected it to be perfumed inside The Gift is a large and pretty messy book to its credit but the main thrusts are 1 To use detailed analyses of folk tales anthropology and economic theory to come up with a model for human interaction that parallels commodity exchange but is based around gift giving and 2 To give detailed readings of Whitman and Pound two poets whose careers and lives Hyde sees standing at an intersection of gift giving and commerce in art and life I found the first part of this mildly boring and the second part fascinating Especially the Pound stuff Hyde s parable made me uncomfortable Pound is important to me and I take assesment of his work personally especially when it has to do with his ideas about energy and creativity Hyde s reading is moving and persuasive it really is a fable Through it Pound is transformed from a man who knew best how to organize himself so that poetry could reinvent itself through him into someone who misunderstood the nature of creativity so deeply that it stunted and withered his most important projects What a transformation But I don t know if I m totally happy with it Here s the significance of the argument for me anyway how we understand Pound is how we understand creation in the 20 21st century Pound was a strategist of energy before he was anything else he worked constantly in and outside himself to create that ground which would allow his vision to come into the world And this is Hyde s point at least he failed He failed to himself to othersmaybe not Pound excited and angered a huge amount of peopleIn order to explain this failure Hyde imagines a creative imagination that is divided into two parts will and inspiration Will is mental commerce sterile eualizing while inspiration is the imagination s euivalent of the gift free given expansive Hyde wants us to embrace the subconscious and unwilled aspects of the creative process this as he sees it is where the magic happens So forcing things only leaves you sterile and fragmentary see the CantosI agree with this for the most part but find the set up kind of a red herring Much better is how Gombrowicz describes it in his diariesThe whole trick though is that while surrendering yourself passively to the work and letting it create itself you do not even for a moment stop controlling it Your rule in this matter must be I do not know where the work will lead me but wherever it leads me I have to express myself and satisfy myselfAll the problems that a work being born and blindly creating itself suggest to you problems of ethics style form intellect must be solved with the full participation of your most alert consciousness and with maximum realism as this is a game of compensation the crazier fantastic inventive unpredictable irresponsible you are the sober controlled responsible you must be Diaries lovely too that all great artists no matter how experimental their writing sound utterly and even boringly healthy when they talk about their work The artist is always pragmatic that is always concerned with what worksThe answer to Hyde s argument an answer that he sort of kind of admits in the book s conclusion not a new answer is that the mind is a single piece and to over emphasize inspiration is just as myopic as thinking a book can be a blueprint whose spaces you have to fill in The mind may be diverse but it makes a unity So back to Pound s failure and how he did itPound failed Hyde argues because after a certain point he became all will He organized and organized but the visions stayed manifold and to him this was a failure he wanted to fix the big thing and thought that doing this would allow even little things to come into existence He was trying to do what Gombro asks but he couldn t Why can t we Is it impossible and if so just for Americans Or for everybody Which brings the uestion back to fables Pound succeeds in one type of fable but fails in another His art and his life form a single thing that you can read from the outside but the thing is freuently disharmonious and artless it has to be in order to work in the larger fable but didn t have to be shouldn t have been in order to work as art His details freuently clutter and his abstractions freuently clog Whole two hundred page swaths of his work are unreadable A corollary to this could be that many times a good and forceful artist who fails as a great artist succeeds as a great fable Great artists are themselves always great fables but the moral of their work is always the same I AM THAT I AMPart goodpart bad artists are much interesting because they succeed in their failures They know they didn t uite get itThe Gift occasionally sounds like Thoreau occasionally like some guy sitting in his basement One of those books that makes you not comfortable about your failed artisthood so much as charged I immediately wanted to make things but then remembered that I am not really crafty or energetic enough to do this
