Maurice Beebe, IVORY TOWERS AND SACRED FOUNTS; THE ARTIST AS HERO IN FICTION FROM GOETHE TO JOYCE, New York, New York University Press, 1964, 323 pages.

These are stories which tell how they came to be written; most are self-portraits of their creators. To discover what they have in common is to learn something about the nature of the artist in general. Therefore Ivory Towers and Sacred Founts is intended to be not only a critical history of a literary genre, but a study of the artistic temperament, the creative process, and the relationship of the artist to society.

p. V (Preface)
