Passionate minds : women rewriting the world by Claudia Roth Pierpont( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A series of explorations of the biographies and literary achievements of twelve modern women writers, Passionate Minds tells the stories of women who "rewrote" the world that they inherited, shaping beliefs about vital issues ranging from religion to sex to race to politics." "Claudia Roth Pierpont organizes these probing portraits into three sections. Broadly speaking, the first deals with issues of sexual freedom, in essays on Olive Schreiner, Gertrude Stein, Anais Nin, and - surprisingly, for those who do not know her as a writer - Mae West. The second section, which examines Margaret Mitchell, Zora Neale Hurston, and Eudora Welty, deals with issues of race and the American South during a period of wrenching change and retrenchment. The third focuses on politics, particularly on the experience and historical interpretation of Soviet Communism and Nazi Germany: the Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, Ayn Rand, Doris Lessing, and, in a dual essay that is also a moving account of an enduring friendship, Hannah Arendt and Mary McCarthy. Throughout, Pierpont anatomizes both the lives and the art of her subjects and suggests their roles in the progress - if it has been progress - that has taken place in the attitudes of women over the course of the century."--Jacket

Roth scatenato : uno scrittore e i suoi libri by Claudia Roth Pierpont( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roth desencadenado dista de ser una simple biografía. Claudia Roth Pierpont explora la mente de Philip Roth en un viaje por la obra de este gran creador, uno de los escritores norteamericanos más polémicos y estimulantes de nuestro tiempo. El lector tiene entre sus manos el primer libro que trata en profundidad la vida y obra de uno de los escritores más célebres de nuestro tiempo, galardonado con el National Book Award, el Pulitzer y el Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras, y un creador único cuya relevancia se sustenta en una impecable trayectoria literaria que arrancó en los sesenta con Goodbye Columbus y la rompedora El mal de Portnoy, para proseguir con una serie de obras maestras en los ochenta, hasta desembocar en las cuatro novelas breves que componen el ciclo Las némesis y que, en palabras del propio Philip Roth, marcan el final de su carrera. A lo largo de sus páginas somos testigos de los titubeantes pasos de un joven infelizmente casado que lucha por sacar adelante sus primeros textos. Vemos a un Roth comprometido y a un Roth enfrentado con los estamentos de la religión judía, al creador controvertido y famoso que se defiende de los constantes ataques a su obra, y lo vemos acompañado de sus fuentes de inspiración: críticos, mujeres, familia y amistades de la talla de Saul Bellow, Harold Pinter, Milan Kundera, John Le Carré o John Updike. La crítica ha dicho... Un equilibrio perfecto entre distancia e intimidad.[...] Desvela y relaciona con mucha habilidad el complicado vínculo que existe entre las experiencias vitales de Roth y su burlona ficción autorreferencial. The Spectator No estamos ante la típica biografía estándar, sino más bien ante una inmersión en la figura de Roth desde todos sus ángulos, incluso los más inesperados. [...] Este libro supone un logro extraordinario. Los Angeles Review of Books Pierpont sabe trasladaren su texto la admiración y el afecto que siente por Roth sin renunciar a la profundidad crítica. The Boston Globe Un ensayo fascinante y lúcido en su análisis. Un libro fundamental que esclarece la obra de Roth. The Economist Pierpont logra lo que se propone toda buena crítica: hacernos leer con nuevos ojos la obra de Roth. Publishers Weekly Un retrato perspicaz de toda una vida de creación literaria. [...] El retrato sincero y compasivo de un autor intrépido. Kirkus Reviews

American rhapsody : writers, musicians, movie stars, and one great building by Claudia Roth Pierpont( Recording )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ranging from the shattered gentility of Edith Wharton's heroines to racial confrontation in the songs of Nina Simone, American Rhapsody presents a kaleidoscopic story of the creation of a culture. Here is a series of deeply involving portraits of American artists and innovators who have helped to shape the country in the modern age. Claudia Roth Pierpont expertly mixes biography and criticism, history and reportage, to bring these portraits to life and to link them in surprising ways. It isn't far from Wharton's brave new women to F. Scott Fitzgerald's giddy flappers, and on to the big-screen command of Katharine Hepburn and the dangerous dames of Dashiell Hammett's hard-boiled world. The improvisatory jazziness of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue has its counterpart in the great jazz baby of the New York skyline, the Chrysler Building. Questions of an American acting style are traced from Orson Welles to Marlon Brando, while the new American painting emerges in the gallery of Peggy Guggenheim. And we trace the arc of racial progress from Bert Williams's blackface performances to James Baldwin's warning of the fire next time, however slow and bitter and anguished this progress may be. American Rhapsody offers a history of twentieth-century American invention and genius. It is about the joy and profit of being a heterogeneous people, and the immense difficulty of this human experiment
Giovanni da Nola and the monument of Pedro de Toledo : a study in Neapolitan sixteenth century sculpture by Claudia Roth Pierpont( )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A context for the monument is sought in an exploration of the sculptor's oeuvre, including the major works in wood and marble from the late 'teens through the 'fifties. Many are of controversial attribution, and one is previously unpublished. An attempt is made to separate the master's hand and style from those of his assistants
