Description:

New York. 1937. Harcourt Brace & Company. 1st American Edition. Substantial Chip Along the Lower Right Corner of the Front Boards. Otherwise Good.No Dustjacket. 39. 211 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 7598. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Published in 1937, Djuna Barnesís novel NIGHTWOOD was immediately recognized as a great work of art, a masterpiece comparable, T.S. Eliot argued in his enthusiastic introduction, to the finest Elizabethan tragedy. In complex, dense, and stunningly beautiful prose, Barnes delineates the lives of her characters: the mysterious expatriate American Robin Vote, her Viennese husband Felix Volkbein, her lover Nora Flood, and their loquacious, outrageous friend Dr. Matthew OíConnor. As a meditation on love, loss, language, and identity, NIGHTWOOD invites study from a variety of literary, linguistic, and philosophical perspectives. Moreover, readers interested in history and religious studies will find much to repay their attention. Set mostly in Paris between the world wars, the novel has been seen as both a prescient critique of fascism and a trenchant deconstruction of the illusions of historical progress and historiography. Religious as well as national differences among the characters occupy much of the textís attention: Felix is a self-hating Jew, Nora a puritan Protestant, Matthew an Irish Catholic sinner, and Robin a Catholic convert. Substantial Chip Along the Lower Right Corner of the Front Boards. Otherwise Good.No Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 7598
