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 dis
