The Bazaar and Other Stories

Bowen, Elizabeth Author

Image Not Available

This volume brings together the previously uncollected stories of this exceptional modernist writer, from fairy tale to fable and social drama.Covering a range of situations--broken engagements, encounters with ghosts, brushes with crime--these previously uncollected stories demonstrate the virtuosity that characterizes all of Elizabeth Bowen's writing."The Lost Hope" ranks with the best of her war stories. Shattering the lives of soldiers and civilians alike, the war cancels the promise shown by the generation that came of age in the 1940s. Yet the war also clears a path to the future, as happens in "Comfort and Joy" and "The Last Bus." Humour in these tales ranges from the sardonic to the light-hearted. In the title story, "The Bazaar," Captain Winch begs everyone for pins and ends up stealing some. With this collection, Bowen, gifted with keen social observation, justifies her place in the company of D. H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf, and James Joyce.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 138 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. A prolific writer of short stories, Elizabeth Bowen claimed towards the end of her life that a story deals in the not-yet-thought-of but always possible. Covering a range of situations - broken engagements, encounters with ghosts, brushes with crime - these stories demonstrate the virtuosity of technique that characterizes all of Bowen s writing. The Lost Hope ranks with the best of her war stories. Shattering the lives of soldiers and civilians alike, the war cancels the promise shown by the generation that came of age in the 1940s. Yet the war also clears a path to the future, as happens in Comfort and Joy and The Last Bus. Bowen s characters live in the grip of intense circumstances. They respond ardently or ironically to their dilemmas, and sometimes both at once, as does sulky, big-limbed Doris Simonez in Flowers Will Do. If some of the children in these stories are too wise for their age, like the punctual protagonist of The Unromantic Princess, adults occasionally behave with no insight at all into their actions. Humour in these tales ranges from the sardonic to the light-hearted. In the title story, The Bazaar, Captain Winch begs everyone for pins and ends up stealing some. Lady Hottenham gives an impromptu little speech that drifts agonizingly into cliche. The fairy tales, fables, and social dramas in this volume were never gathered together during Bowen s lifetime; a few exist only in unfinished draft. With this collection, Bowen, gifted with keen social observation, justifies her place in the company of D. H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf, and James Joyce. Key Features: *Brings together for the first time Bowen s uncollected short stories *Demonstrates the diversity of Bowen s short fiction across her writing career *The stories cover familiar Bowen themes of marriage, travel, estrangement, disappointment and disinheritance *Completes the picture of Bowen as a compelling writing of the short story.
