Ecclesiastes or, The Preacher
Canongate Books, 1 de jan. de 1999 - 64 páginas
Ancient tradition suggests that this world-weary lament is the work of Solomon in old age. Casting its eye over the transient nature of life, the book questions the striving for wisdom and the truth, choosing instead to espouse the value of living for the moment. The text is introduced by Doris Lessing.
