Abstract:

"The Literary Legacy of Rebecca West is the first book to explore the entire corpus of her extraordinary seventy-one year writing career. Rollyson, author of Rebecca West: A Life, draws on his formidable command of manuscript collections in Great Britain and the United States to present the first comprehensive account of her literary achievement. Unlike previous scholarly works, Rollyson's does not chop West up into categories and genres. Instead, he follows the evolution of her career, demonstrating how the fiction and nonfiction relate to each other."--BOOK JACKET. "Bolstered by new scholarship and by interviews and correspondence with West's contemporaries, Rollyson provides the first organic account of her esthetic and political vision."--Jacket.
