Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “A perfect expression of Miller’s moral perspective as well as one of his outstanding demonstrations of narrative skill. It provides a wonderful cinematic view of two indomitable egotists in deadly conflict.” —The Nation The devil in Henry Miller’s Big Sur paradise is Conrad Moricand: “A friend of his Paris days, who, having been financed and brought over from Europe as an act of mercy by Mr. Miller, turns out as exacting, sponging, evil, cunning and ungrateful a guest as can be found in contemporary literature. Mr. Miller has always been a remarkable creator of character. Conrad Moricand is probably his masterpiece. . . .A Devil in Paradise is the work of a great novelist manqué, a novelist who has no stricter sense of form than the divine creator. . . .Fresh and intoxicating, funny and moving. . .” —The Times Literary Supplement (London)

Download or read book The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (New Directions Bibelot) written by Tennessee Williams and published by New Directions Publishing. This book was released on 2013-10-25 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tennessee Williams's first novel The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone is vintage Tennessee Williams. Published in 1950, his first novel was acclaimed by Gore Vidal as "splendidly written, precise, short, complete, and fine." It is the story of a wealthy, fiftyish American widow recently a famous stage beauty, but now "drifting." The novel opens soon after her husband's death and her retirement from the theatre, as Mrs. Stone tries to adjust to her aimless new life in Rome. She is adjusting, too, to aging. ("The knowledge that her beauty was lost had come upon her recently and it was still occasionally forgotten.") With poignant wit and his own particular brand of relish, Williams charts her drift into an affair with a cruel young gigolo: "As compelling, as fascinating, and as technically skillful as his play" (Publishers Weekly).

Summary Book Review Diptych Rome-London (New Directions Bibelot) :

Download or read book Diptych Rome-London (New Directions Bibelot) written by Ezra Pound and published by New Directions Publishing. This book was released on 1994-05-17 with total page 64 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Diptych Rome-London presents the two undisputed masterpieces of Pound's pre-Cantos work––the long poems "Homage to Sextus Propertius" and "Hugh Selwyn Mauberley." Created in the aftermath of World War I, the poems ironically consider the place of the artist in "a botched civilization." "Homage to Sextus Propertius" (1917) is a free translation from the Latin, an homage to the Roman poet; praising its "enormous freedom and range of tone," Hugh Kenner remarked that "few more original poems exist in English." "Hugh Selwyn Mauberly" (1920) is described in A. Walton Litz's clear and helpful introduction as a "master document of literary modernism." It was also T.S. Eliot's favorite Pound poem: "I am quite certain of 'Mauberley,' whatever else I am certain of... a great poem, a document of an epoch."
