About This Item

2000. 1st Edition. Very Good/Very Good. The Selected Letters of Rebecca West. Yale University Press, 2000. Hardcover, 496 pages. Very Good/Very Good. Front board very slighty curved at edge, touch of light soiling to closed page block, pages otherwise clean and unmarked. Light shelfwear to jacket. This collection of West's letters is the first ever published and has been culled from the estimated ten thousand she wrote during her long life. The more than two hundred selected letters follow this spirited author, critic, and journalist from her first feminist campaign for women's suffrage when she was a teenager through her reassessments of the twentieth century written in 1982, in her ninetieth year. The letters, which are presented in full, include correspondence with West's famous lover H.G. Wells and with Shaw, Virginia Woolf, Emma Goldman, Noel Coward, among many others; they offer pronouncements on such contemporary authors as Norman Mailer, Nadine Gordimer, and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.; and provide new insights into her battles against misogyny, fascism, and communism. West deliberately fashions her own biography through this intensely personal correspondence, challenging rival accounts of her groundbreaking professional career, her frustrating love life, and her tormented family relations. Engrossing to read, the collection sheds new light on this important figure and her social and literary milieu. Quantity Available: 1. ISBN: 0300079044. ISBN/EAN: 9780300079043.
