I am a senior in high school, and I am conducting a research paper on the beauty of chess as an intellectual art. I'm looking at the order, structure, logic, creativity, etc. of chess and chess players, and how they make the game, in my opinion, beautiful.
In short, I'm look Immortal Game[/i]
Benjamin Franklin's "Morals of Chess"
Any suggestions appreciated.
I read this one, and I think it's precisely what you're looking for.
this one I haven't read yet, but I can't wait!
this one does include some serious chess analysis, but it's mainly the back stage stories of Kramnik's 3 WC matches, explained in an interview format by his seconds during the matches (except with the match againt Topalov, in which the authors weren't his seconds), and I think it's something you should have in your library.
