Naked in the marketplace : the lives of George Sand by Benita Eisler( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed literary biographer Benita Eisler sheds new light on the many roles, triumphs, and losses that together constituted Sand's overwhelming presence. The author of nearly ninety novels, twenty-thousand letters and thousands of pages of autobiographical writings and political commentary, how did Sand also have the time to live? As Eisler reveals, hers seems like several lives - literary, political, amorous, and domestic. Earlier biographers have either cast Sand as a feminist icon or blurred her in the dynamic of "child of the century." Naked in the Marketplace captures Sand's essence - the outsized public persona and the inner woman, along with the unique and irreplaceable role she played in the history of her times."--Jacket
The Red Man's bones : George Catlin, artist and showman by Benita Eisler( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Catlin has been called the "first artist of the West," as none before him lived among and painted the Native American tribes of the Northern Plains. Catlin found his calling: to fix the image of a "vanishing race" before their "extermination"--his word. In the first six years of the 1830s, he created over six hundred portraits--unforgettable likenesses of individual chiefs, warriors, braves, squaws, and children belonging to more than thirty tribes living along the upper Missouri River. Political forces thwarted Catlin's ambition to sell what he called his "Indian Gallery" as a national collection, and in 1840 the artist began three decades of self-imposed exile abroad. For a time, he was the most celebrated American expatriate in London and Paris. But when he started to tour "live" troupes of Ojibwa and Iowa, his fortunes declined: he changed from artist to showman, and from advocate to exploiter. Tragedy and loss engulfed them. This humane portrait brings Catlin and his Indian subjects to life for our own time

Situations by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

5 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Situations III, published in English for the first time in the form that Sartre himself gave to the collection, contains essays from the philosopher's most creative period, 1945-49. The first section, comprising articles written at the end of World War II and published variously in Paris, New York and London, conveys Sartre's immediate post-War reflections on collaboration, resistance and liberation. Part Two brings together the most telling of the pieces that reflect his long trip to the USA in January-May 1945. After a lucid philosophical exposition of the failings of philosophical materialism in Part Three, Sartre focuses in the fourth section on the new revolutionary poetry of 'Negritude' in the famous long essay 'Black Orpheus'. Part Five is devoted to meditations on the visual arts, with penetrating essays on the work of Alberto Giacometti and Alexander Calder, both of whom Sartre knew well."--Jacket
