One of the earliest novels to explicitly portray homosexuality, the influence of Djuna Barnes's novel has been, and continues to be, exceptional.Nightwood is not only a classic of modernist literature, but was also acknowledged by T. S. Eliot as one of the great novels of the twentieth century.

Description : The self-described "most famous unknown author in the world," Djuna Barnes (1892 - 1982) is increasingly regarded as an important voice of feminism, modernism, and lesbian culture. Best remembered for her 1936 novel Nightwood, Barnes began her career by writing poetry, short stories, and articles for avant-garde literary journals as well as popular magazines. She took the grotesque nature of reality as her recurrent theme, a pessimistic world view frequently brightened by her sparkling wit. A longtime resident of Greenwich Village, Barnes drew inspiration from the bustling streets of Lower Manhattan, and this eclectic compilation of her early journalism, fiction, and poetry recaptures the vitality of her bohemian literary scene. The collection opens with articles ranging from an account of an evening at the Arcadia, a "modern dance hall," to a firsthand report of the force-feeding endured by suffragettes in 1914. In addition to profiles of a postman, vaudeville performer, and other local personalities, Barnes interviews Lillian Russell and Alfred Stieglitz and describes an encounter with James Joyce. A dozen short stories follow, and the book concludes with a selection of compelling and sensual poetry, including verse from The Book of Repulsive Women. A selection of the author's original illustrations is included.

Description : Ranging over depression-era politics, the failures of the League of Nations, popular journalism and the Modernist culture exemplified by such writers as James Joyce and T.S. Eliot, this is a comprehensive exploration of the historical contexts of Djuna Barnes's masterpiece, Nightwood. In Djuna Barnes's Nightwood: 'The World' and the Politics of Peace, Bonnie Roos reads Barnes's novel against the backdrop of Herbert Bayard Swope's popular New York newspaper The World to demonstrate the ways in which the novel wrestles with such contemporaneous issues as the Great Depression and its political fallout, the failures of the League of Nations and the collapse of peace between the two World Wars. Roos argues that Nightwood allegorizes the role of liberal newspapers - epitomised by the sensationalism of The World - in driving a US policy that hastened the arrival of war.

Description : Nightwood is the story of Robin Vote and those she destroys: her husband "Baron" Felix Volkbein and their child Guido, and the two women who love her, Nora Flood and Jenny Petherbridge. Commenting on them all is Doctor Matthew O'Connor, whose outlandish monologues elevate their romantic losses to the level of Elizabethan tragedy.

Description : This revisionary study of Wallace Stevens queries the dominant interpretations of the poet's career. It redirects the reader's attention to the neglected achievement of Stevens's first book, Harmonium (1923), and examines the pluralism of these early poems in the context of current critical revaluations of modernisms. The originality of this book lies in its new interpretation of Stevens, and in its British (and Irish) viewpoint. A principal contribution is the extended discussion of Stevens's relationship with the Irish poet Thomas MacGreevy.

Description : 2016 Reprint of 1928 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Carrying the longish title of "Ladies Almanack: showing their signs and their tides; their moons and their changes the seasons as it is with them; their eclipses and equinoxes; as well as a full record of diurnal and nocturnal distempers," Barnes work is a novel in which real persons or actual events figure under disguise. Its subject is the predominantly lesbian social circle centering on Natalie Clifford Barney's salon in Paris in the 1920s. It is written in an archaic, Rabelaisian style, with Barnes's own illustrations in the style of Elizabethan woodcuts. The obscure language, inside jokes and ambiguity of the work have kept critics arguing about whether it is an affectionate satire or a bitter attack, but Barney herself loved the book and re-read it throughout her life.

Description : The best writings of one of the great twentieth-century American stylists, whose extraordinary novel Nightwood, about rootless and sexually ambiguous expatriates in Paris between the wars, is a modern classic. T. S. Eliot praised it for 'the great achievement of a style, the beauty of phrasing, the brilliance of wit and characterisation, and the quality of horror and doom very nearly related to that of Elizabethan tragedy'. As well as Nightwood this striking volume contains Spillway, a collection of early stories, and the rare and remarkable verse play The Antiphon, completed at the end of Djuna Barnes's life.

Description : When it was first published in 1928, Djuna Barnes's Ryder, a bawdy mock- Elizabethan chronicle of a family very much like her own, was described in the Saturday Review as “the most amazing book ever written by a woman.” One of modern literature's first and best denunciations of patriarchal repression, Ryder employs an exuberant prose by which narrator Julie Ryder derides her hated father, polygamous Wendell Ryder. Barnes satirizes masculinity and domesticity by way of parable, poem, and play, and a prose style that echoes Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Bible, and Robert Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy. For this edition, several of Barnes's previously suppressed illustrations have been restored.

Description : "Originally published in the chap book series by Bruno of Greenwich Village in 1915, this renowned volume of poetry presented portraits of women of the period -- a mother, prostitute, cabaret dancer, and others-- which were wildly radical in their day, dominated as it was by Victorian mores. But there is still in these "rhythms" a seething beat of sexuality and vice, whipped up into a delicious sense of perversity by Barnes's art"--Back cover.

Description : This is a collection of Barnes' newspaper and magazine conversations with celebrities and artists from 1914-1931, bringing to life personalities who have become myths for us. The voices of James Joyce, Florenz Ziegfeld, Diamond Jim Brady, Lillian Russell, D.W. Griffith, Mother Jones, Alfred Stieglitz, Frank Harris, Coco Chanel, Billy Sunday and many others from the past speak of their laughter and despair, dreams and doubts. In these unconventional interviews, the author is not concerned with celebrity worship; she does not fawn or glorify or promote; rather, she focuses on gesture, nuance, ephiphany--the expression of personality and the essence of character. The volume includes 23 of her original drawings. ISBN 0-940650-36-3: $16.95; ISBN 0-940650-37-1 (pbk.): $10.95.
