George Sand

E. Caro

George Sand

"George Sand is no longer read," they tell us. It may be so; yet, were it only for the honor of the French language, we believe that men will return, if not to the whole, at least to a part of her work, which will be refined by time, carefully sifted by public taste, and found superior to the vicissitudes and to the caprices of opinion. When we were asked to gather up our recollections of this author and to revive them at a time so strangely scornful and so swift to forget, we were anticipated in a secret desire to make an appeal, some day, to our former impressions, to freshen them by renewed reading, to bring them to light corrected and tempered byacquired experience and by comparison.

Philip McFarland

Hawthorne in Concord

Book DescriptionWith Hawthorne in Concord, Philip McFarland presents an appreciative portrait that illuminates the periods Hawthorne lived in the village of Concord, Massachusetts, capturing the flavor and essence of his life. In 1842 Hawthorne, the author of Twice-Told Tales, escorts his beloved new wife, Sophia, to their first home, the Old Manse. In love with Concord and enriched by friendships with Thoreau and Emerson, this becomes an idyllic time for him. But ultimately, unable to make enough money from his writing, he returns ingloriously to his mother's home in Salem. In 1852, Hawthorne returns to Concord, now the renowned novelist of both The Scarlet Letter (1850) and The House of the Seven Gables (1851). Eager to begin writing at the scene of his earlier happiness, he instead completes a biography of his college friend, Franklin Pierce, who is running for president. When Pierce wins, Hawthorne is appointed to the lucrative post of consul in Liverpool. Coming home in 1860, he...

Hemingway And the Mechanism of Fame: Statements, Public Letters, Introductions, Forewords, Prefaces, Blurbs, Reviews, And Endorsements

Book DescriptionErnest Hemingway was famous for being famous. He assiduously cultivated different and sometimes divergent personae?sportsman, soldier, aesthetician, patriot, drinker, womanizer, intellectual, anti-intellectual, sage, brawler, world traveler, war correspondent, big-game hunter, and even author?each chosen to foster his place in the American cultural consciousness and support the sales of his books. In every role he projected the insider?s air of authority and expertise that was presumed credible, even when not wholly deserved. His success in these self-legendizing efforts to couple nonliterary celebrity with literary stature is evident in his continued fame among those familiar and unfamiliar with his books. Hemingway and the Mechanism of Fame assembles Hemingway?s public writings about himself, all framed as documents of support for or criticism of other people and other products. Comprising fifty-four public statements and letters; twenty...

Her Husband: Hughes and Plath, a Marriage

Amazon.comDianne Middlebrook launches Her Husband: Hughes and Plath: A Marriage , appropriately, with the birth of the poets? lives together. Through her retelling of the historic moment of their first meeting, Middlebrook sets the balanced, literate, and brutally honest tone that she maintains throughout the book. According to Middlebrook, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes?s first encounter was violent and almost mythic, punctuated with kisses and biting. In 112 days they were married. Together, as Middlebrook shows, they formed a unique literary bond. They remained aggressive intellectual and erotic partners. But, six years later, Hughes left Plath and their two children for another woman. She committed suicide shortly after, while Hughes would go on to a long and successful career as a poet and as Plath?s literary executor. What Middlebrook brings to this story, outside of the almost voyeuristic details gleaned from letters, diaries, interviews, and past...
High Latitudes : An Arctic Journey

Farley Mowat

High Latitudes : An Arctic Journey

Book DescriptionIn High Latitudes Farley Mowat chronicles for the first time a sometimes hazardous journey he took across northern Canada in 1966. He hoped to write a book that would let northern people speak for themselves and that would expose the speciousness of the political idea that the North was “a bloody great wasteland” with no people in it, and therefore resource developers could exploit it however they chose. For reasons Mowat describes that book did not get written then. But here it is now, with the original conversations recorded by Mowat during that epic journey. In vintage Mowat fashion the legendary writer delivers a sweeping narrative brimming with breathtaking nature writing, suspenseful storytelling, larger-than-lifecharacters, ferocious humor, pitiless rage, iconoclastic insights, and compassionate concern. In her foreword Margaret Atwood writes: “High Latitudes gives us, with passion and insight, a vertical section of time past — the...
Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950's

Marijane Meaker

Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950's

Amazon.com Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950s begins like a brainy, romantic novel complete with exotic settings, fast-paced dialogue, and a who?s who of the 1950s New York literati. All this should not be surprising given that Marijane Meaker?s tale of her two-year relationship with famed mystery novelist Patricia Highsmith comes from a pen that has crafted more than 40 works of fiction and non-fiction. Meaker?s touch is light and clear. She backlights her memoir with glimpses of the New York scene of the era: the Mafia-controlled lesbian bars, the rise of Fire Island, the rage for Freudian psychoanalysis. She doesn't attempt a detailed literary biography, nor is the book a complete psychological portrait of Highsmith. But Meaker, a self-proclaimed lover of pseudonymous disguises, does peer beneath Highsmith?s public mask to reveal her constant despair over a disapproving mother, her fascination/obsession with Germany, and her discomfort around...
History Play : The Lives and Afterlife of Christopher Marlowe

Rodney Bolt

History Play : The Lives and Afterlife of Christopher Marlowe

Book Description Rodney Bolt’s delightful life of Marlowe plays out a surprising solution to an enduring literary mystery, bringing the spirit of Shakespeare alive as we’ve never seen it before. Rodney Bolt’s book is not an attempt to prove that, rather than dying at 29 in a tavern brawl, Christopher Marlowe staged his own death, fled to Europe, and went on to write the work attributed to Shakespeare. Instead, it takes that as the starting point for a playful andbrilliantly written “fake biography” of Marlowe, which turns out to be a life of the Bard as well. Using real historical sources (as well as the occasional red herring) plus a generous dose of speculation, Bolt paints a rich and rollicking picture of Elizabethan life. As we accompany Marlowe into the halls of academia, the society of the popular English players traveling Europe, and the dangerous underworld of Elizabethan espionage, a fascinating and almost plausible life story...

Mary McCarthy

How I Grew

Book Description How I Grew explores the young adulthood of Mary McCarthy, one of the most outspoken and prominent intellectuals of the twentieth century. Focusing on eight formative years of her life—from high school in the Seattle area through college at Vassar—McCarthy reveals a girl by turns vulnerable, independent, dramatic, lonely, inquisitive, romantic, demonstrably bright, and uncommonly daring. In candid, often intimate detail, How I Grew recounts McCarthy’s early attempts at writing; her relationships with teachers, family, and friends; a melodramatic flirtation with suicide; and experiences as dissimilar as her first joband her first seduction. A natural companion to the much-praised Memories of a Catholic Girlhood, this is a remarkable personal chronicle, an utterly convincing self-portrait, and a superb addition to the art of the autobiography.

Rene Pol Nevils

Ignatius Rising: The Life Of John Kennedy Toole

Book DescriptionThe phenomenal success of John Kennedy Toole?s comic masterpiece, A Confederacy of Dunces, is now legendary, a story that has long beckoned a deeper exploration into the life, imagination, and demise of the writer responsible for oneof American literature?s most memorable characters?Ignatius J. Reilly. In Ignatius Rising, Rene Pol Nevils and Deborah George Hardy present the first biography of Toole, drawing upon scores of interviews with contemporaries of the writer and acquaintances of his influencing mother, Thelma, as well as unpublished letters, documents, and photographs. Frank yet sympathetic, Ignatius Rising deftly describes a life that is dark, tragic, bizarre, and amazing?but luminous with the gift of laughter, a life not unlike those of Toole?s beloved characters, now loved the world over.

Alphonse Daudet

In the Land of Pain

Book DescriptionAs Julian Barnes writes in the introduction to his superb translation of Alphonse Daudet’s La Doulou, the mostly forgotten writer nowadays “ate at the top literary table” during his lifetime (1840–1897). Henry James described him as “the happiest novelist” and “the most charming story-teller” of his day. Yet if Daudet dined in the highest company, he was also “a member of a less enviable nineteenth-century French club: that of literary syphilitics.” In the Land of Pain—notes toward a book never written—is his timelessly resonant response to the disease. In quick, sharp, unflinching strokes of his pen, Daudet wrote about his symptoms (“This is me:the one-man-band of pain”) and his treatments (“Mor-phine nights . . . thick black waves, sleepless on the surface of life, the void beneath”); about his fears and reflections (“Pain, you must be everything for me. Let...

Gerald Sorin

Irving Howe: A Life of Passionate Dissent

Book DescriptionBy the time he died in 1993 at the age of 73, Irving Howe was one of the twentieth century's most important public thinkers. Deeply passionate, committed to social reform and secular Jewishness, ardently devoted to fiction and poetry, inlove with baseball, music, and ballet, Howe wrote with such eloquence and lived with such conviction that his extraordinary work is now part of the canon of American social thought. In the first comprehensive biography of Howe's life, historian Gerald Sorin brings us close to this man who rose from Jewish immigrant poverty in the 1930s to become one of the most provocative intellectuals of our time. Known most widely for his award-winning book World of Our Fathers, a rich portrayal of the East European Jewish experience in New York, Howe also won acclaim for his prodigious output of illuminating essays on American culture and as an indefatigable promoter of democratic socialism as can be seen in the pages of Dissent, the journal...

J. Anthony Froude : The Last Undiscovered Great Victorian

Book Description Acclaimed biographer Julia Markus has written an unprecedented and illuminating portrait of the brilliant, tortured, and controversial James Anthony Froude -- the quintessential Victorian, father of modern biography, historian, diplomat, and prodigal son. J. Anthony Froude expertly captures the roiling cultural history of a century through one man's dynamic life. From his birth in 1818 to his death in 1894, J. Anthony Froude embodied the issues and complexities of his time. Through the story of his life, Markus elucidates the major ideological issues of the nineteenth century -- sexuality, colonialism, and the widespread challenges to religion's long-held cultural primacy. In beautifully crafted prose, Markus reveals the compelling life of one of the most important think-ers of the Victorian age -- the brutality of his early education, his troubled relationship with his father, his expulsion from Oxford, his dramatic and dazzling literary career, his...
