The last romantic : a poet among publishers : the oral autobiography of John Hall Wheelock by John Hall Wheelock( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the forty-six years that John Hall Wheelock (1886-1978) - an influential literary figure and respected poet - worked at Charles Scribner's Sons, the company was the leading literary publishing house in America. During this golden era, Scribners included F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, James Jones, Alan Paton, George Santayana, and Thomas Wolfe among its authors. As the editor who assisted and then succeeded the legendary Maxwell Perkins as editor in chief, Wheelock worked with some of the nation's most acclaimed - and difficult - authors. Wheelock's record of his remarkable life and career offers an unparalleled account of New York publishing and the American literary scene during its richest period." "Wheelock's memoir extends beyond the inner workings at Scribners to his own career as a poet and his friendships with a wide circle of literary figures, including Conrad Aiken, Vachel Lindsay, Sara Teasdale, and Elinor Wylie. Wheelock's dictated autobiography traces his writing of poetry from schoolboy beginnings, through a Harvard apprenticeship that led him to publish his first collection in collaboration with Van Wyck Brooks, to his mature years as an esteemed figure in American letters. In addition to documenting the profession of authorship in America, Wheelock's recollections provide a social history of the affluent society of his boyhood and youth before and after the turn of the nineteenth century."--Jacket
