James Thurber - Writings and Drawings Library of America - 9781883011222 - edition reliée, livre de poche

1996, ISBN: 9781883011222

[ED: Hardcover / gebunden], [PU: Library of America], The Library of America and editor Garrison Keillor present the best and most extensive Thurber collection ever assembled. Only a book of this scope can do justice to Thurber's extraordinary career and to the many unexpected turns of his comic genius. Here are the acknowledged masterpieces: "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "The Catbird Seat," the anti-war parable The Last Flower, the brilliantly satirical Fables for Our Time, the children's classic The 13 Clocks, and My Life and Hard Times. Here too are the best pieces from The Owl in the Attic, Let Your Mind Alone!, My World - And Welcome To It, and The Beast in Me and Other Animals, and his other famous collections, including such favorites as "The Pet Department," "The Black Magic of Barney Haller," "Nine Needles," "The Macbeth Murder Mystery," and "File and Forget": an astonishingly diverse mix of literary parodies, eccentric portraits, stories of domestic warfare and inner terror, reminiscences both tender and farcical, extravagant feats of wordplay, freewheeling burlesques of popular culture (from detective novels to self-help fads), and exasperated protests against the mechanized impersonality of the modern world. Thurber's wonderful drawings - spontaneous creations of which he once said, "I don't think any drawing ever took me more than three minutes" - are here in profusion, with their population of husbands, wives, dogs, seals, and various species of Thurber's own invention. His first great cartoon collection, The Seal in the Bedroom, is presented complete, along with celebrated sequences like "The Masculine Approach" and "The War Between Men and Women" and his devastatingly straightforward illustrated versions of once-canonical poems such as "Barbara Frietchie" and "Excelsior." Rounding out the volume is a selection from The Years with Ross, his memoir of New Yorker publisher Harold Ross, and a number of pieces uncollected by Thurber, including a few wonderful early ones never before reprinted. James Thurber, whimsical fantasist and deadpan chronicler of everyday absurdities, brought American humor into the 20th century. His comic persona, a modern citydweller whose zaniest flights of free association are tinged with anxiety, remains hilarious, subtly disturbing, and instantly recognizable. Here, in over 1000 pages, editor Garrison Keillor presents the best and most extensive collection ever assembled. Over 100 pieces include ?The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and ?The Catbird Seat, the brilliantly satirical Fables for Our Time , the classic My Life and Hard Times , and the best of The Owl in the Attic , Let Your Mind Alone! , My World?And Welcome to It , and the other famous books. Plus 500 wonderful drawings, including The Seal in the Bedroom and celebrated sequences like ?The Masculine Approach and ?The War Between Men and Women.

Garrison Keillor, a sunnier brand of Midwestern humorist, has assembled four longer works with many of Thurber's drawings and short pieces for the Library of America edition of Thurber's selected works. Many of these cartoons and writings are now classics, and Thurber's edgy, modernist humor--not to mention his usually bewildered protagonists--has influenced many of the best cartoonists today., 4375, Comic Strips, 4366, Comics & Graphic Novels, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4477, Satire, 4456, Humor, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13922574011, Absurdist, 10134, Genre Fiction, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10303, Anthologies, 10300, Short Stories & Anthologies, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10307, Short Stories, 10300, Short Stories & Anthologies, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16004731, Humor, 9822, United States, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159382011, Humorous, 4465, Humor & Satire, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10129, Contemporary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
