[EAN: 9780297810766], Neubuch, [PU: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, first edition, 1994.], TYNAN, K. WYKBOOKS 05946 THEATRE CRITICS - GREAT BRITAIN CORRESPONDENCE AUTHORS, ENGLISH 20TH CENTURY, ACTORS BIOGRAPHY CENTURY KENNETH, 1927-1980 THEATER, DIRECTING KENNETH ; KATHLEEN, Jacket, Cloth, 8vo, xiv, 669 pp, plates. "As drama critic for the Observer in the 1950s, he sought to 'rouse tempers, goad and lacerate, raise whirlwinds', and as Literary Manager of the newly-formed National Theatre under Laurence Olivier in the 1960s, he championed new playwrights, adventurous productions, 'high-definition performance', and plays which engaged the issues of the day. Above all, he wanted to create a theatre that would be genuinely popular, 'an independent force at the heart of the country's life'. A passionate social reformer and provocateur of the Establishment, he devised the notorious Oh! Calcutta!, an erotic revue which aimed to liberate sexual fantasies on stage. This selection of Kenneth Tynan's letters traces the making of a brilliant intellectual persona, and a lifetime battle against the forces of convention and complacency. Never before published, the letters reveal an astonishing range of subject and correspondent. Each is a literary performance. Tynan wrote to John Lennon on sex; to the Lord Chamberlain on censorship; to his schoolfriend, J ulian Holland, on American comics, cricket and prose style; to Marlene Dietrich on candour and autobiography; and to his many girlfriends on love. His correspondents include James Agate, Lord Beaverbrook, Cecil Beaton, Cyril Connolly, William Shawn, David Astor, Helene Weigel, George Devine, Laurence Olivier, Robert Graves, Thornton Wilder, Joseph Heller, Peter Brook, Tennessee Williams, Mike Nichols, V iclav Havel, Germaine Greet and Louise Brooks. There are intimate letters to his family, in particular to his second wife, Kathleen, in which he reveals his inner life, his doubts and demons, and funny and affectionate poems addressed to his children on their birthdays. In his last years, living in exile in Los Angeles due to his failing lungs, Tynan wrote long and celebrated essays on Ralph Richardson and Louise Brooks, among others. One of his subjects, Tom Stoppard, said after Tynan's death in 1980, that 'he was the product of our time . . . but our time was of his making.'" - from the blurb. Very Good in Very Good dustwrapper.
