The letters of T.E. Lawrence by T. E Lawrence( Book )

23 editions published between 1938 and 1939 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T. E. Lawrence was remarkable, among other things, for the quality of his letters. It is not just that they are interesting and well-written; they also provide intriguing links to different aspects of British life in the first half of the twentieth century. As many have discovered, an interest in Lawrence can quickly become a gateway to the history and culture of his time. He corresponded with writers such as John Buchan, E.M. Forster, David Garnett, Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, and Bernard Shaw; artists such as Augustus John, Eric Kennington, Paul Nash, William Roberts and William Rothenstein; archaeologists and travellers such as Gertrude Bell, C.M. Doughty and D.G. Hogarth, and public figures such as Nancy Astor, Winston Churchill and Lord Trenchard. Lawrence's career and personality often provoked strong reactions in people he met. Some admired and respected him. Others questioned his achievements and resented his post-war enlistment. Someone's reaction to Lawrence often provides clues to their attitudes towards other topics
America at last : the American journal of T.H. White by T. H White( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late author of The Once and Future King, sire of Camelot, came to the United States on a lecture tour shortly before his death. Accompanied by an eighteen-year-old chaperone-guide, affectionately obeyed and respected, he flew about the nation addressing school, university, civic groups (he very seldom alludes to the contents of his recitations.) He found Manhattan ""a small city in the horizontal... only enormous vertically,"" New Orleans ""the greatest town in America for gourmets,"" loved San Francisco, was awed with Utah--""out of the brain of Brigham Young."" America was indeed a foreign land--where everything over twenty-five years old seemed to count as an antique, where, ""in Long Island, fishermen can buy live worms from slot machines!"" Yet the discovery here is more on the part of the author than the American reader, who finds himself in the company of a pleasant gentleman with no major insights to impart. If one wishes a memento of the author, here it is, along with a fond remembrance that gives a perspective on his personality. --From Kirkus Reviews

"Pocahontas, America's first and greatest legendary heroine, is transformed in these pages from the simple Indian maiden of American history to a complex woman torn between her allegiance to her own people and her fascination with the white man... In addition to a penetrating portrait of Pocahontas, this book, based on intensive historical research, presents an accurate and exciting picture of the American Indian--his customs, beliefs, religious and social rites--and the dramatic story of the Jamestown settlers, divided into petty factions and struggling in hostile country against overwhelming odds"--Back cover
