Rebels and Ancestors: A Critical Study.

London: W. H. Allen, 1954. First Printing of the First UK Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Very Good Plus, price clipped dust jacket with some age darkening to spine. In this critical study of Frank Norris, Stephen Crane, Jack London, Ellen Glasgow and Thoedore Dreiser, Maxwell Geismar covers the years of ferment between 1890 and 1915, a period of changing trends and attitudes and of intellectual liberation as illustrated in the works and lives of these five authors. These are solid and definitive studies of significant writers and of the shifting facets if their temperaments, the central themes of their work and the conflicts of the environment. Item #25632
