A propos de cet article

310 pages, cloth, rebound ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the preface: "It must be obvious even to the most loyal subjects and pertinacious admirers of Broncho Billy, Buster Keaton and Pearl White that the legitimate theatre, after its late attack of measles, is again rapidly getting back the rosy glow of health and is once more beginning to kick up its heal in the high, gay, old-time manner." "From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: "George Jean Nathan, 1882-1958, American editor and drama critic, b. Fort Wayne, Ind. He left the New York Herald to join H. L. Mencken in editing Smart Set (1914-23), which they made into a guide for the young American intellectual. In 1924 they founded the American Mercury, a magazine that fostered the most rebellious and lively literature and drama; for a decade the magazine was the arbiter of American literary taste. Nathan was himself primarily a drama critic, famous for the erudition and cynicism of his reviews; he was an early champion of Eugene O'Neill. He was a founder and an editor (1932-35) of the American Spectator, and after 1943 he wrote a syndicated column for the New York Journal-American. His criticism appeared in many volumes: Mr. George Jean Nathan Presents (1917); The Critic and the Drama (1922); The Testament of a Critic (1931); Since Ibsen (1933); The World of George Jean Nathan, ed. by Charles Angoff (1952); and The Magic Mirror, edited by T. G. Curtiss (1960). He also set forth his philosophy of criticism in Autobiography of an Attitude (1925).". N° de réf. du libraire 19490
