"This Library of America volume supplements the classic pieces from Agee on Film with previously uncollected writings on Ingrid Bergman, the Marx Brothers, Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, Vittorio De Sica's Shoeshine, and a wealth of other cinematic subjects." "Agee's own work as a screenwriter is represented by his script for Charles Laughton's unique and haunting masterpiece of Southern gothic, The Night of the Hunter, adapted from the novel by Davis Grubb. This collection also includes examples of Agee's masterfully probing reporting for Fortune - on subjects as diverse as the Tennessee Valley Authority, commercial orchids, and cockfighting - and a sampling of literary reviews, among them appreciations of William Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, S.J. Perelman, and William Carlos Williams."--Jacket
The morning watch by James Agee( Book )

57 editions published between 1950 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel shows Agee writing at the height of his powers and treating a story, set during Holy Week in an Episcopalian boarding school closely modeled on Agee's own St. Andrew's, that resonates with deep religious feeling and sharply observed memories. The first two sections of "The Morning Watch" show the strong influence on Agee of James Joyce's "Portrait of the Artist," but, if anything, Agee's depiction of a young boy's undergoing spiritual torment is more believable and more sharply written than Joyce's account. The third and final part of "The Morning Watch," set in the early morning hours of Good Friday, is a beautifully-conceived reworking of Christ's passion as experienced by three young boys who have played hooky from school and who learn their own capacity for blood lust and tolerance for violence. Agee's fondness for children and animals and his deep love of Scripture are vividly evoked in this last section. --John H. Flannigan at Amazon.com

Selected poems by James Agee( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Steeped in the metaphysics and music of Elizabethan verse, alert to the nuances of the American vernacular, Agee's poetry is eloquent and wide-ranging. It exhibits, writes Andrew Hudgins, "a variety that we expect from the protean mind that excelled in so many different kinds of writing." Agee's passionate exploration of religious themes - "his struggle," in Hudgins' words, "to comprehend his place in God's vision"--Is especially evident in the sequence of 25 sonnets that some consider his most notable verse creation, poems that take us into the heart of his most abiding concerns."--Jacket
