Contains light to moderate highlighting, notes, underlining and/or other markings; satisfaction guaranteed. For this new, enlarged edition of his 1952 study, Philip Young has for the first time related his extraordinary struggle with Hemingway over his analysis, and has answered as well such of his own critics as the TLS which asked 'What will happen to Hemingway when he has read this book?' He has also recounted the years leading to the writer's death and extended his analysis to include Hemingway's posthumously published work, A Moveable Feast. When first published, Mr. Young's book was described as 'masterly' (London Tribune), 'fascinating' (Pittsburgh Press), 'wonderful' (Denver Post). In The Partisan Review Saul Bellow wrote: 'an excellent book...not in the least academic, serious but not 'square.' 'a foreword and an afterword, both of the highest interest' Granville Hicks in the Saturday Review.

17 Narcissism and Paranoia in the Age of Goethe
Mathas, Alexander University of Delaware Press 087413014X / 9780874130140 Hardcover Very Good 
087413014X ~Very Good. Light shelf wear to covers/corners; satisfaction guaranteed. Hardcover with Dust Jacket. This is the first sustained book-length study that examines how literary narcissism in the Age of Goethe intersects with concepts of creativity, language, gender, and national identity, and how German writers anticipate the formation of the Freudian concepts of narcissism and paranoia. Beginning in the 1770s authors like Goethe, Herder, Schiller, Moritz and others created a highly self-reflective literature. Their poems, dramas, prose works, and theoretical essays provide insights into how these writers attempted to contend with uncertainties connected to the loss of faith in a universal order.The authors use literature to reflect a sense of certainty by creating a stable, idealized, and thus narcissistic self. The author shows that narcissism was particularly attractive to eighteenth-century authors because it could both capture and conceal the contradictions inherent in Enlightenment thinking. The failure to reconcile these contradictions often results in unbearably haunting visions that give way to paranoid delusions. Alexander Mathas is Associate Professor of German at the University of Oregon.

34 We Called Each Other Comrade: Charles H. Kerr & Company, Radical Publishers
Ruff, Allen PM Press 1604864265 / 9781604864267 PAPERBACK New 
1604864265 This is the history of the most significant translator, publisher, and distributor of left-wing literature in the United States. Based in Chicago and still publishing, Charles H. Kerr & Company began in 1886 as a publisher of Unitarian tracts. The company's focus changed after its founder, the son of abolitionist activists, became a socialist at the turn of the century. Tracing Kerr's political development and commitment to radical social change, "We Called Each Other Comrade"also tells the story of the difficulties of exercising the First Amendment in an often hostile business and political climate. A fascinating exploration in left-wing culture, this revealing chronicle of Charles H. Kerr and his revolutionary publishing company looks at the remarkable list of books, periodicals, and pamphlets that the firm produced and traces the strands of a rich tradition of dissent in America.
