About the Author

Jerome Klinkowitz is a University Distinguished Scholar and professor of English at the University of Northern Iowa. He is the author and editor of many books, including four editions of The Norton Anthology of American Literature.


"[This] is not a retelling of a history we already know. . . . It is not just a book about architecture but about [Wright's] manner of thought and the way it influenced, or has been influenced by, American culture. . . . It offers new and exciting insights."--Journal of the Taliesin Fellows

"Exactly what is needed to examine the popular architect and societal figure from a completely new perspective. . . . Engaging, informative, and thought-provoking."--American Studies

"That Frank Lloyd Wright was his own greatest creation is a truism rendered all the more defensible with this critique of the architect's collected writings. . . . [Klinkowitz] engages the buildings of this design genius--not as products of mere biographical or historical happenstance, but through penetrating analyses of the compositions themselves . . . demonstrating that, whether expressing himself in concrete or abstract terms, Wright was the most principle architect-philosopher of modern times. Recommended; general readers and lower-level undergraduates and above."--Choice

"The complexity of [Wright's] thinking, both as an architect and as a philosopher of the aesthetic, was astounding, and Klinkowitz has done a splendid job of tracing these multiple byways and illuminating the final achievements. . . . A notable contribution to both architectural and cultural history."--Library Journal
