Rebels and Ancestors. 1890-1915: An Age of Intellectual Liberation reflected in the American Novel.

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1953. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good dust jacket with some edgewear to spine and shallow chipping to edges. A "Complimentary Copy" slip from the publisher tipped in on the front paste down. 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 #25633
