About This Item

New York:: Norton,, 1934.. First Printing of the First Edition.. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a faint moisture spot on the rear panel and small hole at the fold of the spine. Reviewer and later hollywood writer Milton Merlin's penciled signature on the flyleaf. Scarce classic. Cowley was an American literary critic and social historian who chronicled the writers of the Lost Generation of the 1920s and their successors in "Exile's Return." He graduated cum laude from Harvard in 1920, took advanced study in France at the University of Montpellier (1922), and helped to put out the expatriate little magazines Secession and Broom. In this role, he came to know the European and particularly the Parisian avant-garde. Cowley returned to the United States in 1923 and in 1934 published "Exile's Return" which is an important social and literary history of the expatriate American writers in the 1920s. In it he signaled the importance of their rediscovery of America as a source for literature.
