Recensione:

“Anyone who tried to find some of John Dos Passos’s classic novels and travel narratives in recent years would have had to look long and hard. Many of his books had been out of print. . . . Yet after years of neglect, Dos Passos’s reputation is once again on the rise, and The Library of America is publishing a new collection of his writing.” The New York Times

L'autore:

Townsend Ludington, editor, is Boshamer Professor of English and American Studies at the Univ. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, author of John Dos Passos: A Twentieth Century Odyssey, and editor of The Fourteenth Chronicle: Letters and Diaries of Dos Passos.

Dos Passos drew upon his experiences as a volunteer ambulance driver serving near Verdun in writing "One Man?s Initiation: 1917" (1920), in which an idealistic young American learns of the fear, uncertainty, & camaraderie of war through his encounters w/ French soldiers & civilians. The unexpurgated text presented in this edition restores passages censored by the novel's original publisher. In "Three Soldiers" (1921) Dos Passos engaged in a deeper exploration of World War I & its psychological impact upon an increasingly fractured civilization. The novel depicts the experiences of Fuselli, a store clerk from San Francisco pathetically eager to win promotion; Chrisfield, an Indiana farmer who comes to hate army discipline; & Andrews, an introspective aspiring composer from New York, as they fight in the final battles of the war & then confront a world in which an illusory peace offers little respite from the dehumanizing servility & regimentation of militarized life. Dos Passos described "Manhattan Transfer" (1925), a kaleidoscopic portrait of New York City in the first two decades of the 20th century, as "utterly fantastic & New Yorkish." Drawing on the naturalism of Theodore Dreiser & the modernism of James Joyce, the novel follows the rising & falling fortunes of more than a dozen characters as they move through a bewildering maze of tenements & skyscrapers in which Wall Street speculators, theatrical celebrities, impoverished immigrants, & anarchist rebels all strive to make sense out of the chaos of modern urban existence. * ABOUT THE AUTHOR: JOHN DOS PASSOS (1896?1970) was born in Chicago & graduated from Harvard in 1916. His service as an ambulance driver in Europe at the end of World War I led him to write "Three Soldiers" in 1919, the first in a series of works that established him as one of the most prolific, inventive, and influential American writers of the 20th century. * ABOUT THE EDITOR: Townsend Ludington is Cary C. Boshamer Professor of English & American Studies at the University of North Carolina & author of "John Dos Passos: A Twentieth Century Odyssey." * The LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, & keeping permanently in print, America's best & most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, & ribbon markers, & are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.
