Geniuses Together American Writers In Paris In The 1920s [ePub]

by Humphrey Carpenter

Humphrey Carpenter has made a career of writing biographies of twentieth century icons - Pound, Auden, Tolkien, and Britten to name a few.He also has chronicled some of the groups of authors that formed friendships either in a certain place or time.No group is more famous than "the lost generation" as Gertrude Stein named them.Carpenter centers his narrative on the rise of Ernest Hemingway and contrasts Papa's rigorous work habits with the hedonistic abandon of most of his Paris contemporaries. It is a valid tool for investigating the period. The author undercuts his thesis, however, by eventually minimizing the impact and importance of Hemingway's works, pointing out that they underwent a critical and popular eclipse later in Hemingway's life. The result is a glimpse into the decade and some of the interplay between these artists.
