Edmund Wilson : centennial reflections by Lewis M Dabney( )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edmund Wilson helped shape American letters from the early 1920's through the mid-'60s. He remains a presence in our literary culture, and his accounts of art and society have influenced a younger generation of readers and thinkers. This vibrant collection emerges from symposiums held at the Mercantile Library and at Princeton University in 1995, Wilson's centennial year. At these occasions, prominent critics, literary journalists, and historians aired a variety of points of view about his work and personality. Assembled and edited by Lewis Dabney, this book shows new intellectual voices interacting with veterans who knew Wilson and his times. In the first part, Morris Dickstein, Jason Epstein, Barbara Epstein, David Bromwich, Jed Perl, and Mark Krupnick comment on Wilson's development as a critic, his faith in reason and his personal romanticism, his version of modernism and eclectic interest in the arts, as well as the sources of his later writing about Judaism. In the second section, a reading of the journals from The Twenties to The Sixties by Neale Reinitz and a chapter from Dabney's biography-in-progress lead to the reminiscences of Elizabeth Hardwick, Jason Epstein, Mary Meigs, Roger Straus, and Alfred Kazin, as well as Michael C.D. Macdonald, the son of family friends, and the Dead Sea Scrolls scholar James Sanders giving an authentic sense of Wilson's place in the literary life. Two of his important works, the study of the Marxist intellectual tradition in To the Finland Station and of Civil War literature in Patriotic Gore, anchor the discussion in the third part. Here David Remnick and Daniel Aaron debate his radical commitment, joined by Arthur Schlesinger and others in a vigorous exchange, and Randall Kennedy's attack on Wilson's neglect of nineteenth-century black writers provokes a response from Toni Morrison. Instructive essays by Andrew Delbanco and Louis Menand, and discerning comments by Paul Berman and Sean Wilentz round out the volume. Originally published in 1997. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

Edmund Wilson : a life in literature by Lewis M Dabney( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Jazz Age through the McCarthy era, Edmund Wilson stood at the center of the American cultural scene. In his youth a crucial champion of the young Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Wilson went on to write classics of literary and intellectual history, reportage, and criticism that have outlasted many of their subjects. Wilson documented his unruly private life--a formative love affair with Edna St. Vincent Millay, a tempestuous marriage to Mary McCarthy, and volatile friendships--in openly erotic fiction and journals, but Dabney is the first biographer to integrate the life and work. Dabney traces the critic's intellectual development, from small-town New Jersey gentry to America's last great renaissance man, a commentator on everything from the Russian classics to Native American rituals to the Dead Sea Scrolls, and shows why Wilson has remained--in his cosmopolitanism and trenchant nonconformity--a model for young writers and intellectuals.--From publisher description
