The correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914 by Henry James ( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few writers have had such a significant impact on American literature in the twentieth century as have Henry James and Henry Adams. The influence of Adams' Education appears unmistakably in the work of writers as diverse as T.S. Eliot, Sherwood Anderson, Vachel Lindsay, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Eugene O'Neill, Nathanael West, Norman Mailer, and Thomas Pynchon. The list of writers influenced by James is virtually endless, ranging from Ezra Pound and Wallace Stevens to Robert Lowell, among poets, and from Ford Madox Ford and Edith Wharton to Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick, among fiction writers. The Correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914, edited and annotated by George Monteiro, collects the surviving correspondence between these two legendary figures, along with four letters from James to Adams' wife, Marian "Clover" Hooper Adams. James, Adams, and Mrs. Adams were close friends until her death in 1885, and the two men continued to visit and correspond until James's death. The letters in this volume reflect the strength and vitality of that friendship and of the intellectual exchanges that nourished it. Covering a thirty-eight-year period, these thirty-six letters constitute the known extant correspondence exchanged by the two Henrys. Monteiro has carefully and skillfully edited each letter in its entirety from the manuscript original. In addition to the letters, he includes a chronology, a calendar of unlocated letters between the two men, and a bibliography. His introduction to the collection traces James's relationship with his two New England friends, Henry and Clover, in rich detail. This essay makes a lively background to the letters and sets them in vivid context. This is a fascinating collection that reveals the patterns of an enduring friendship and the minds and personalities of the participants. It makes a valuable contribution to scholarship about James and Adams, as well as to our understanding of the social and intellectual worlds in which they lived

Stephen Crane's blue badge of courage by George Monteiro ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In considering the whole of Crane's writing, Monteiro interrelates the various texts and vividly presents their cultural contexts, structuring his study around the primary natural and social settings that uniquely characterize Crane - the city, warfare, the frontier, and shipwreck at sea. By taking an unprecedented inventory of those religious readings, songs, and recitations the young Crane imbibed and tracing their permeation of his writerly imagination, Monteiro deepens our understanding of the meaning and purpose of Crane's work and fosters new appreciation for his immense but short-lived creative faculty."--BOOK JACKET
The presence of Pessoa : English, American, and Southern African literary responses by George Monteiro ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Presence of Pessoa is the first study of Pessoa's influence on twentieth-century poets, who have responded to him in surprising and sometimes comic ways. Monteiro traces the Pessoan threads in the work of such contemporaries as Joyce Carol Oates, Allen Ginsberg, John Wain, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, as well as earlier poets Thomas Merton, Edouard Roditi, and Roy Campbell. The complete text of Campbell's pioneering biocritical study of Pessoa, left unfinished at Campbell's death, is published for the first time in book form

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This study explores how Bishop's personal and literary experience in Brazil influenced her work culturally, historically, and linguistically. Focusing on the "Brazilian" characteristics of Bishop's work as well as some of the major poems she composed before settling in Brazil, this volume offers fresh perspective on one of the 20th century's most celebrated writers"--Provided by publisher

Fernando Pessoa and nineteenth-century Anglo-American literature by George Monteiro ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Both in his own poetry and the poetry he attributed to his heteronyms, the great modernist poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) was strongly influenced by his reading of nineteenth-century British and American writers. Pessoa's formal education was that of a British colonial in South Africa, and his bilingual and bicultural status is evident in both his early English-language poetry and his later Portuguese writings."--BOOK JACKET
