Search - List of Books by Lewis Hyde

Lewis Hyde (born Boston 1945) is a scholar and writer whose scholarly work focuses on the nature of imagination, creativity, and property.

Hyde received an M.A. in comparative literature from the University of Iowa and a B.A. in sociology from the University of Minnesota. After many years of freelance work and odd jobs, he taught writing at Harvard University (1983-1989); in his last year there, he directed the undergraduate writing program. From 1989 to 2001 he was the Luce Professor of Arts and Politics at Kenyon College in Ohio. Since 2006 he has served as the Richard L. Thomas Professor of Creative Writing at Kenyon, and a visiting fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center. He is also a Nonresident Fellow at the USC Annenberg Center for Communication.

Hyde's awards include an NEH Fellowship for Independent Study and Research (1979); three NEA Creative Writing Fellowships (1977, 1982, 1987); a MacArthur Fellowship (the "Genius" award) (1991); a residency at the Getty Center, Los Angeles (1993-94); an "Osher Fellow" at the Exploratorium in San Francisco (1998); a Lannan Literary Fellowship (2002); an American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship (2003); and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship (2006).

Hyde's popular works of scholarship, including the books The Gift (1983) and Trickster Makes this World (1998) have been widely praised by fiction writers, including Margaret Atwood, Michael Chabon and David Foster Wallace. Robert Darnton in The New York Times called Hyde's latest book, Common as Air: Revolution, Art and Ownership ( Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2010), "an eloquent and erudite plea for protecting our cultural patrimony from appropriation by commercial interests."

Hyde is the son of Elizabeth Sanford Hyde and Walter Lewis Hyde, and is married to Patricia Vigderman.
