The world of Samuel Beckett, 1906-1946 by Lois G Gordon( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel Beckett, whose play Waiting for Godot was one of the most influential works for the post-World War II generation, has long been identified with the debilitated and innocent characters he created. In this provocative book, Lois Gordon offers a new perspective on Beckett, challenging the prevalent image of him as reclusive, self-absorbed, and disturbed. Gordon investigates the first forty years of Beckett's life and finds that he was, on the contrary, a kind and generous man who responded sensitively and even heroically to the world around him. Gordon describes the various places and events that affected Beckett during this formative period: war-torn Dublin during the Easter Uprising and World War I, where he spent his childhood and student days; Belfast and Paris in the 1920s and London during the Depression, where he lived and worked; Germany in 1937, where he traveled and witnessed Hitler's brutal domestic policies; prewar and occupied France, where he was active in the Resistance (for which he was later decorated); and the war-torn town of Saint-Lo in Normandy, which he helped to restore following the liberation. Gordon also portrays the individuals who were important to Beckett: including Jack B. Yeats, Alfred Peron, Thomas McGreevy, and, most significantly, James Joyce, who was a model for Beckett personally, artistically, and politically. Gordon argues convincingly that Beckett was very much aware of the political and cultural turmoil of this period and that the enormously creative works he wrote after World War II can, in fact, be viewed as a product of and testament to those tumultuous times

Nancy Cunard : heiress, muse, political idealist by Lois G Gordon( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lois Gordon tells the story of a writer, activist, and cultural icon who embodied the tumultuous spirit of her age. The only child of an English baronet (and heir to the Cunard shipping fortune) and an American beauty, Nancy Cunard (1896-1965) abandoned the world of a celebrated socialite and Jazz Age icon to pursue a lifelong battle against social injustice as a wartime journalist, humanitarian aid worker, and civil rights champion. Cunard fought fascism on the battlefields of Spain and reported firsthand on the atrocities of the French concentration camps. Intelligent and beautiful, she romanced the great writers of her era. She was also a prolific poet, publisher, and translator and, after falling in love with a black American jazz pianist, became deeply committed to the civil rights movement.--From publisher description
