The player's boy : a novel by Bryher( Book )
11 editions published between 1953 and 2006 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
This beautifully realized story of a young Elizabethan actor's apprentice [was published] in 1953. After the death of James Sands's beloved Master Awsten, one of the Queen's Players who has taught Sands the rudiments of acting, Sands travels from Southwark, London and passes through a succession of employers. At a house in the country, he meets the summering playwright Francis Beaumont, in the process of writing his play Philaster. James wins the part of Bellario, the girl page disguised as a boy for love of Philaster, who in a curious royal menage-a-trois sends Bellario to serve his beloved Arethusa; James duly falls in love, unrequitedly, with Beaumont's virginal fiancee, Ursula. History intrudes offstage in the form of Sir Walter Raleigh's execution and the ascent of the Puritans, and James, now a clerk, becomes a kind of poignant anachronism, too delicate for the coarsening new age. Theatrical and romantically lyrical, Bryher's novel is a forgotten gem, channeling the servant boy's first person flawlessly. --Publishers Weekly
Analyzing Freud : letters of H.D., Bryher, and their circle by H. D( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 487 libraries worldwide
"The poet H.D. (1886-1961) underwent psychoanalysis with Sigmund Freud in Vienna during the spring of 1933 and again in the fall of 1934. She visited his famed study at 19 Berggasse daily, while outside Nazi thugs bullied their way through the streets - an early foretaste of the catastrophe of coming war. Freud was old, fragile, and often ill. H.D. was forty-six and despairing of her writing life, which, for all her success, seemed to her to have reached a dead end. Her sessions with Freud proved to be the point of transition, the funnel into which she poured her memories of the past and associations in the present, and from which she emerged reborn." "H. D. came to Freud at the urging of her companion, the novelist Bryher (1894-1983), the daughter of a wealthy British shipping magnate and long a supporter of the internationl psychoanalytical movement." "Although H.D.'s letters to Bryher are at the core of Analyzing Freud, the volume includes a generous selection of Bryher's side of the exchange, as well as sixteen letters by Freud to H.D. and a dozen more to Bryher, most of them published for the first time. In addition, reflecting a larger literary and personal web of associations, the book includes H.D.'s and Bryher's letters to and from Havelock Ellis, Kenneth MacPherson, Robert McAlmon, Ezra Pound, and Anna Freud, among others. Taken together, the 306 letters in Analyzing Freud, introduced and fully annotated by Susan Stanford Friedman, comprise a compelling portrait of a psychoanalysis that amplifies and expands upon H.D.'s formal Tribute to Freud (1974)."--Jacket

"Highly readable. ... Offers rare insights into gay life in the first quarter of the twentieth century."â€" Diana Collecott, University of Durham, author of H.D. and Sapphic Modernism Bryher (born Annie Winifred Ellerman) is perhaps best known today as the lifelong partner of the poet H.D. She was, however, a central figure in modernist and avant-garde cultural experimentation in the early twentieth century; a prolific producer of poetry, novels, autobiography, and criticism; and an intimate and patron of such modernist artists as Gertrude Stein, Marianne Moore, and Dorothy Richardson. Bryher's own path-breaking writing has remained largely neglected, long out of print, and inaccessible to those interested in her oeuvre. Now, for the first time since their original publication in the early 1920s, two of Bryher's pioneering works of fictionalized autobiography, titled Development and Two Selves, are reprinted in one volume for a new audience of readers, scholars, and critics. Blending poetry, prose, and autobiographical details, Development and Two Selves together constitute a compelling bildungsroman that is among the first ever to follow a young woman's process of coming out. Through the fictionalized character Nancy, the novels trace Bryher's life through her childhood and young adulthood, giving the reader an account of the development of a unique lesbian, feminist, and modernist consciousness. Development and Two Selves recover significant work by one of the first experimenters of the modernist movement and are a welcome reintroduction of the enigmatic Bryher. "Bryher's novels have a strong place in the history of lesbian and transgendered writing. This volume is sure to be a useful tool for modernist studies, women's studies, and queer, gay, and lesbian studies."â€" Susan Stanford Friedman, University of Wisconsinâ€"Madison, author of Mappings: Feminism and the Cultural Geographies of Encounter Bryher (Annie Winifred Ellerman) was a poet, novelist, critic, patron, and editor of the film journal Close Up and the literary magazine Life and Letters Today. Joanne Winning is lecturer in twentieth-century literature at the School of Humanities and Cultural Studies, Middlesex University, London
