Power and Order. Henry Adams and the Naturalist Tradition in American Fiction.

Publisher: Chicago UP [1981].
xi, 146 p., index. "The naturalist tradition in American fiction was a product of the tremendous changes wrought in late nineteenth-century America by the development of science and technology and by the intellectual upheavals associated with the ideas of Darwin, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. This book is an account of naturalism, perhaps the strongest and most influential intellectual tradition-- or, as Harold Kaplan would argue, mythology-- to affect modern American literature and culture."

Partisans. Marriage, Politics, and Betrayal Among the New York Intellectuals.

Publisher: Simon & Schuster [c2000].
319, [1] p., photos, 24.5 cm. "From the Depression era of the 1930s through the Vietnam War of the 1960s, a generation of "public intellectuals" thrived in America. They were poets, novelists, critics, and commentators who were also friends, rivals, spouses, and lovers. ...While the pages of "Partisan Review" were a forum for political and intellectual controversy, its offices were a hotbed of gossip, intrigue, back-stabbing, and sex. Possessed of enormous ambition, talent, and appetite, the PR circle was an intense, self-enclosed society" which included Elizabeth Hardwick, Hannah Arendt, Caroline Gordon, and Diana Trilling. "For women of talent, beauty, and ambition, this literary circle offered unprecedented professional opportunity..." VG; dj a bit soiled, good+. 37052.
