Max & Marjorie : the correspondence between Maxwell E. Perkins and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings by Maxwell Evarts Perkins( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of letters brings together for the first time the entire known correspondence - nearly 700 letters, notes, and wires - of the preeminent twentieth-century American editor and his Pulitzer Prize-winning author."--BOOK JACKET. "While the letters reveal an intimate portrait of the literary and personal friendship of Maxwell Perkins and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, they also constitute a history of the Scribner publishing house from 1930 to 1947, when Perkins died. Rawlings, awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1939 for The Yearling, was one of the Scribner stars in an era when publishing was difficult for women writers. Perkins was her champion, offering editorial opinion, a week-by-week critique of her work, and candid gossip about other writers he nurtured, most notably Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Thomas Wolfe."--BOOK JACKET. "Perkins and Rawlings brought magic to their correspondence. Though four years passed before they used each other's first name, their attraction was immediate and mutual: they shared a sense of humor, concerns about health, discreet details about their marriages, a weakness for the bottle, and, at times, agonizing fits of despair."--BOOK JACKET. "Rawlings wrote not just to Perkins but for him. He responded - to both her life and her work - with wisdom, clarity, and generosity."--BOOK JACKET
The uncollected writings of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From her first awkward poems and stories, to her finely crafted essays as a newspaper and feature writer, to her Florida Period highlighted by the Pulitzer Prize for The Yearling in 1939, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings became, in the words of Margaret Mitchell, America's "born perfect storyteller." Arguing that Rawlings has been underestimated and underappreciated as one of the great American writers, Tarr and Kinser bring together for the first time the work that contributed to her once stellar position as a hero of American letters." "This collection includes Rawlings's childhood publications in the Washington Post and McCall's Magazine, early stories and poems written while she was a student at the University of Wisconsin, feature articles for newspapers in Louisville, Kentucky, and Rochester, New York, and her work for the YWCA in New York City. The Uncollected Writings of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings -- juvenilia, college writing, newspaper pieces, and stories of life in Florida -- is an intimate glimpse at an important writer mastering her craft."--Jacket

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sartor Resartus is Thomas Carlyle's most enduring and influential work. Sponsored by Ralph Waldo Emerson, it was first printed as a book in Boston in 1836 and immediately became the inspiration for the Transcendental movement. The first London trade edition was published in 1838." "This edition of Sartor Resartus is the first publication of the work that uses all extant versions to create an accurate authorial text."--Jacket
The private Marjorie : the love letters of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings to Norton S. Baskin by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the latter, her friend and fellow novelist James Branch Cabell, convinced Rawlings to write a biography of writer Ellen Glasgow, a contemporary best-selling writer and a friend of both. Although Rawlings died before she could complete it, these letters reveal the sensational secrets divulged to her by Glasgow's Richmond intimates." "Near the end of Rawlings's life, when she was worn out by illness, alcohol, and depression, Baskin remained her champion, always listening to her complaints and indulging her whims. In this unvarnished narrative we come to know, as he did, an American writer who was a complex personality, as hard on herself as she was on those she loved"--Jacket

As ever yours : the letters of Max Perkins and Elizabeth Lemmon by Maxwell E Perkins( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maxwell E. Perkins, famed editor of such literary luminaries as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Zora Neale Hurston, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Thomas Wolfe, was a man whose personal and professional lives often intersected. Nowhere is this more evident than in his correspondence with Elizabeth Lemmon, the Virginia socialite who became his long-distance confidante. Despite the platonic nature of their relationship, others realized the intensity of their connection. The letter contained in As Ever Yours, published here for the first time, reveal an epistolary love story - and they provide fresh insights into Perkins the man and Perkins the editor." "As Ever Yours contains 121 of Perkins's letters to Lemmon as well as the 20 extant letters from Lemmon to Perkins; the rest are presumed lost or destroyed. Letters from Fitzgerald and Wolfe also shed light on the pair's dynamic relationship." "The letters make for compelling reading as Perkins details his personal life in New Jersey and Connecticut and his professional life in the New York publishing world. The writers he discovered, edited, and encouraged at Charles Scribner's Sons emerge as endearing and believable characters, brought to life in Perkins's vivid narrative voice. He is witty, self-deprecating, and painterly in his descriptions of people and locales together with the social milieu of his day. Protected by distance, Max used his letter-writing relationship to unburden himself in a way he could not with his coworkers, his authors, or even his wife - and these letters simultaneously highlight his editorial judgment and disclose his private feelings." "Edited by Rodger L. Tarr, As Ever Yours will be important to students and scholars of the history of publishing. The Perkins-Lemmon letters illuminate the thoughts and experiences of the greatest literary editor of the twentieth century."--Jacket

The letters of Ernest Hemingway by Ernest Hemingway( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 3: 1926-1929, featuring many previously unpublished letters, follows a rising star as he emerges from the literary Left Bank of Paris and moves into the American mainstream. Maxwell Perkins, legendary editor at Scribner's, nurtured the young Hemingway's talent, accepting his satirical novel Torrents of Spring (1926) in order to publish what would become a signature work of the twentieth century: The Sun Also Rises (1926). By early 1929 Hemingway had completed A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's letters of this period also reflect landmark events in his personal life, including the dissolution of his first marriage, his remarriage, the birth of his second son, and the suicide of his father. As the volume ends in April 1929, Hemingway is setting off from Key West to return to Paris and standing on the cusp of celebrity as one of the major writers of his time
