Nightwood : the original version and related drafts by Djuna Barnes( Book )

92 editions published between 1936 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nightwood, Djuna Barnes's strange and sinuous tour de force, has become a classic of modernist and lesbian literature since its first publication in 1936. Set in Paris, Berlin, and Vienna during the decadent period between the two World Wars, Nightwood "belongs to that small class of books that somehow reflect a time or an epoch" (TLS)." "It is the story of Robin Vote and those she destroys-her husband the "Baron," their child Guido, and the two women, Nora and Jenny, who love her; the whole is illumined by the fantastic monologues of the renegade doctor Matthew O'Connor. Most striking of all is Barnes's unparalleled stylistic innovation, which led T.S. Eliot to proclaim the book "so good a novel that only sensibilities trained on poetry can wholly appreciate it," and The New York Times Book Review to assert: "Admired by Joyce, Nightwood is as important to the history of the 20th-century novel as Finnegans Wake-and more readable."--Jacket

Barnesbook : four poems derived from sentences by Djuna Barnes by Jackson Mac Low( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long an admirer of the work of Djuna Barnes, noted poet Jackson Mac Low used five of her works as the source material to which he applied the method of "involving irregularly biased random digit triplets to lead ... to a chance-determined number of sentences in these works and to mix them." He then entered each group of mixed sentences into the DIASTEXT program and edited the output. The result is a wonderful nonintentional work that "whispers" Barnes's incredible words "something quick" into the ear. In this work the distinguished American poet - winner of the 1994 America Award for Poetry - continues to explore the dynamics and excitement of the American language and its meaning
