Samuel Beckett : the last modernist by Anthony Cronin( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intensely private, possibly saintly, but perhaps misanthropic, Samuel Beckett was the most legendary and enigmatic of writers. Anthony Cronin's biography is a revelation of this mythical figure as fully human and fallible, while confirming his enormous stature both as a man and a writer." "Cronin explores how the sporty schoolboy of solid Protestant bourgeois stock became a prizewinning student at Trinity, flirted with scholarship, and, in Paris, found himself at the center of its literary avant-garde as an intimate friend of James Joyce. But he was a young man who struggled with complexities in his own nature as well as with problems of literary expression. In the small provincial city of Kassel, Germany, the cosmopolitan Beckett experienced a faltering entanglement with his cousin - one of the first in a series of problematic encounters with women." "The war years, which he spent as a member of the Resistance and a refugee in the South of France, brought Beckett the self-probings and discoveries that led to the great works. Then, with his sudden and astonishing fame, the balloons of myth began to inflate and a stereotype was born - frozen in exile and enigma, solemnity and sanctity." "Anthony Cronin bursts these balloons to see more clearly what lies behind. Without moralizing or psychologizing, without pretensions or piety, he uncovers the real Beckett, the way the life was lived, the way the art was made."--Jacket
No laughing matter : the life and times of Flann O'Brien by Anthony Cronin( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and German and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his all-too-brief lifetime, Flann O'Brien was read by a small but fanatically faithful coterie of readers, including James Joyce, Dylan Thomas, Graham Greene, and William Saroyan. He is one of the most difficult writers to pin down, partly or primarily as a result of his having carefully carved himself into three people, all of whom he used, when necessary, to hide behind. As Flann O'Brien he wrote several novels that for their technical precocity, exuberant prose, and sparking invention, have been proclaimed among the finest of the modern period; as Myles na Gopaleen ("Miles of the Little Ponies") he wrote for twenty-five years a wildly imaginative newspaper column for The Irish Times called Cruiskeen Lawn; as Brian O'Nolan, the name on his birth certificate, he held down a responsible job in the bureaucracy of the Irish Government. No Laughing Matter is the first full-length biography of this remarkable man

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the diary Cahiers, Nijinsky explores the mind of a genius on the outer edge of reason. Through the use of visual imagery seen from Nijinsky's point of view, the film reflects salient moments of his life through the characters he danced as well as his personal relationships with his wife, daughter, in-laws, and his mentor/lover, the notorious impresario Diaghelev"--Container
