49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Susan Ferrier published three long, three-volume novels. Set largely in Scotland and seemingly limited to the sub-genre of provincial novels, Ferrier''s novels are sophisticated and worldly novels fully engaged withe the issues of the day. Ferrier''s novels are witty and intellectually difficult novels, full of learned allusions, literary parodies, sly epigrams, and linguistic jokes. In her novels, as well as in her surviving memoirs and correspondence, Ferrier writes evocatively and with full knowledge of the subjects made current by Mary Wollstonecraft on the education of women, and their economic and political rights. Ferrier also presents original perspectives of Scottish ethnic traditions and contemporary politics. She combines this perspective with a unique inquiry into the nature and growth of personal consciousness and specifically female consciousness, in the context of private religion and public history.

The Correspondence of Shelby Foote and Walker P...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the late 1940s, Walker Percy and Shelby Foote, friends since their teenage years in Greenville, Mississippi, began a correspondence that would last until Percy's death in 1990. Walker Percy, the highly regarded author of The Moviegoer, wrote six novels, two volumes of philosophical writings, and numerous essays. Shelby Foote met with early success as a novelist, but his reputation today rests more upon his massive three-volume narrative history of the Civil War, and his role as commentator in Ken Burns's documentary The Civil War. The correspondence between Percy and Foote traces their lives from the beginning of their respective careers, when they were grappling fiercely and openly with their ambitions, artistic doubts, and personal problems. Although they discuss such serious matters as the death of Foote's mother and Percy's battle with cancer, their letters are full of sly humor and good-natured ribbing. Jay Tolson has selected, edited, and annotated the letters of these two remarkable writers to shed light on their relationship and their literary careers. Includes an eight-page insert with photographs of the writers chronicling their friendship.

Can't and Won't

A new collection of short stories from the woman Rick Moody has called 'the best prose stylist in America' Her stories may be literal one-liners: the entirety of 'Bloomington' reads, 'Now that I have been here for a little while, I can say with confidence that I have never been here before.' Or they may be lengthier investigations of the havoc wreaked by the most mundane disruptions to routine: in 'A Small Story About a Small Box of Chocolates,' a professor receives a gift of thirty-two small chocolates and is paralyzed by the multitude of options she imagines for their consumption. The stories may appear in the form of letters of complaint; they may be extracted from Flaubert's correspondence; or they may be inspired by the author's own dreams, or the dreams of friends. What does not vary throughout Can't and Won't, Lydia Davis's fifth collection of stories, is the power of her finely honed prose. Davis is sharply observant; she is wry or witty or poignant. Above all, she is refreshing. Davis writes with bracing candor and sly humor about the quotidian, revealing the mysterious, the foreign, the alienating, and the pleasurable within the predictable patterns of daily life.
