These six volumes collect the complete essays of one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time. At their best, Huxley's essays stand among the finest examples of the genre in modern literature. "His place in English literature is unique and is certainly assured." T.S. Eliot. "He was among the few writers who...played with ideas so freely, so gaily, with such virtuosity, that the responsive reader...was dazzled and excited." Isaiah Berlin.
