Bellow: A Biography - used book

ISBN: 0394585011

ID: 2384678

James Atlas is a little self-conscious about having spent 10 years writing Bellow: A Biography, but it's hard to imagine how the job could have been done any more quickly. Clearly Bellow, in addition to being one of the 20th century's most acclaimed and prolific novelists, was also one of the most peripatetic. Not the least of his maneuvers were his efforts to dodge biographers, though Atlas's determination eventually wore him down ("He realized that you weren't going away," Bellow's son tells Atlas). The result is a full-scale biography in the tradition of Richard Ellmann's James Joyce--in other words, the biography that a writer and cultural figure as important as Saul Bellow deserves. Bellow fans won't be surprised by the details of Bellow's life, many of which are familiar from his novels and essays: youthful Trotsky clubs; waiting to be called up into WWII; lifelong enthusiasm for anthropology, philosophy, European literature, and other Great Books; sarcastic wit that verges on the malicious; friendships and rivalries with Delmore Schwartz, Isaac Rosenfeld, Edward Shils, Allan Bloom, Ralph Ellison, and other literati; innumerable wives, lovers, divorce lawyers, child-custody battles, and alimony struggles; big-shot brothers who disparage intellectuals; and of course, his beloved city of Chicago. Atlas, himself a Chicago native from the generation behind Bellow, covers all of this with patience and considerable authority, balancing Bellow's lively, fictio 20th century,arts and literature,authors,biographies,history,history and criticism,journalists,literature and fiction,modern (16th-21st centuries),movements and periods Biographies, Random House

Bellow: A Biography - hardcover

[EAN: 9780394585017], [PU: Random House], Literary Criticism|American|General, Biography & Autobiography|General, Biography & Autobiography|Literary, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Saul Bellow's parents emigrated from Russia in 1913, and Bellow's early years vividly reflect the Jewish immigrant experience in America. His boyhood in Montreal and Chicago, marked by his family's transient existence and struggle for economic survival, would later inspire many characters and scenes in Bellow's fiction. It was at the University of Chicago that he began to come into his own, discovered his unique voice, and encountered many of the writers and intellectuals who would populate his writing life.Atlas chronicles Bellow's personal adventures and literary career against the rich social and cultural background of the times, as between 1944 and 1976, Bellow wrote such modern classics as The Adventures of Augie March, Seize the Day, Henderson the Rain King, Herzog, and Humboldt'S Gift, which won the Pulitzer Prize. He also won the National Book Award three times, and in 1976, the Nobel Prize for literature. Five volatile marriages, many other tempestuous relationships with women, intellectuals, publishers and friends -- "Bellow": A Biography is a magnificent portrait of the life and times of a writer generally considered one of the premier writers in the English language.
