Abstract:

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