The fountain overflows : a novel by Rebecca West( Book )

The lives of the talented Aubrey children have long been clouded by their father's genius for instability, but his new job in the London suburbs promises, for a time at least, reprieve from scandal and the threat of ruin. Mrs. Aubrey, a former concert pianist, struggles to keep the family afloat, but then she is something of a high-strung eccentric herself, as is all too clear to her daughter Rose, through whose loving but sometimes cruel eyes events are seen. Still, living on the edge holds the promise of the unexpected, and the Aubreys, who encounter furious poltergeists, turn up hidden masterpieces, and come to the aid of a murderess, will find that they have adventure to spare. In The Fountain Overflows... Rebecca West transmuted her own volatile childhood into enduring art. This is an unvarnished but affectionate picture of an extraordinary family, in which a remarkable stylist and powerful intelligence surveys the elusive boundaries of childhood and adulthood, freedom and dependency, the ordinary and the occult.

The return of the soldier by Rebecca West( Book )

117 editions published between 1918 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World War I, in the background of Rebecca West's first novel, was "the first war that women could imagine," writes Samuel Hynes in his eloquent introduction, "and so it was the first that a woman could write into a novel." Narrated by a woman who, like West, has never experienced war and yet for whom the war was very real, The Return of the Soldier (1918) takes place not on a battlefield, but in an isolated country house. It examines the relationships between three women and a soldier suffering from shell shock. This novel of an enclosed world invaded by public events also embodies in its characters the shifts in England's class structures at the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the choice between the romantic past and the horrifying present, between love and reality"--Jacket

In these four brilliant short novels set in America, England and Paris, Rebecca West explores the lives and relationships of rich women and men who are ruled by "the harsh voice we hear when money talks, or hate." There is Josie, a flower of American girlhood whose boundless ambition for wealth fatally loosens the bonds of her marriage to Corrie. There is Etienne de Sevenac, a dilettante French aristocrat whose courtly stratagems are no match for Nancy Sarle--a plain but powerful American businesswoman. There is Alice Pemberton, a sensible Englishwoman--the very salt of the earth--but a petty tyrant in her gracious Georgian home. And lastly there is Sam Hartley, an American businessman who has fought his way to riches with his wife at his side, but whose life is now haunted by an abiding vision of beautiful young women.

The strange necessity; essays by Rebecca West by Rebecca West( Book )

36 editions published between 1928 and 2011 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

West’s intellectually challenging collection of essays—now available as an ebook In this collection of literary criticism, West undertakes the question of art’s value, examining the works of her contemporaries and their places in history “The Strange Necessity,” one of the twelve essays collected here and first published in 1928, anchors West’s quest to understand why art matters and how aesthetics of every caliber can not only inspire but reveal the author’s inner world. Whether juxtaposing Ulysses’s prose with Pavlov’s research, or comparing Sinclair Lewis with actress and pianist Yvonne Printemps, West finds that a satisfying emotion overrides an artistic work’s form. Her intricately crafted essays reveal her experience in the literary circles of the twenties and thirties and the important role this question played in her own writing. West’s keenly observed criticism offers invaluable insight not only into her work but into her impressions of early twentieth century literature
