The Gift is a tool l for understanding the history of commerce, gift giving, and property rights. Whitman and Pound are wonderful examples of the artist as the receptor; as the sublime presence of creative spirit and gift giver. The narratives on the authors (Whitman and Pound) illustrate the principles laid out by Hyde in the previous chapters. All the chapters provide a way to understand postmodern methods of execution, where the audience is more interactive with the artist. This interaction might give the audience a stronger connection with the artist and a sense of empowerment (by playing an active role in the artwork). By playing an active role in the artwork, the audience becomes a receiver and giver as well. This book also directs the artist so he can operate in and out of the capitalistic landscape by understanding the nature of gift-giving versus commodity.
