Aldous Huxley, David Bradshaw:
Between the Wars: Essays and Letters - new book

ISBN: 156663055X

Relié, [EAN: 9781566630559], Ivan R. Dee Publisher, Ivan R. Dee Publisher, Book, [PU: Ivan R. Dee Publisher], Ivan R. Dee Publisher, Aldous Huxley had left England by 1923 and was living a balmy exile in Florence, Paris, and the Cote d'Azur. Already a literary success at home, his image-from today's vantage point-was that of an aloof and detached highbrow whose sole concern was to satirize the emotional and intellectual failings of British life. Yet as these newly published letters and essays show, Huxley was drawn to the social and political upheavals of this period between the wars, made frequent visits to England to investigate them, and wrote trenchantly about them. His firsthand experience with Mussolini's fascism and with victims of Nazi oppression led him to renounce authoritarianism and to champion the plight of ordinary men and women. Between the Wars, skillfully edited and introduced by David Bradshaw, contains essays on art and literature, letters to H. L. Mencken, pieces from the early thirties lamenting the behavior of the masses and supporting elite rule, and writings from the late thirties that reveal Huxley's growing disaffection with the direction of European politics. In this centennial year of Aldous Huxley's birth, Between the Wars enhances his stature as one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time., 301132, Romans et littérature, 302048, Antiquité, 302040, Autres littératures étrangères, 302047, Biographies, 302046, Correspondances et mémoires, 588052, Érotisme, 464084, Littérature américaine, 464044, Littérature anglaise, 464136, Littérature espagnole, 302038, Littérature française, 405920011, Littérature humoristique, 464154, Littérature italienne, 464152, Littérature japonaise, 464158, Littérature russe, 1064926, Livres de référence, 302036, Poésie, 302043, Romans historiques, 302045, Récits de voyages, 302037, Théâtre, 301130, Thèmes, 301061, Livres, 83486011, Anthologies, 82786011, Genre Fiction, 81604011, Literature & Fiction, 69633011, Subjects, 52042011, Livres anglais et étrangers
