Jerome Loving is a major American biographer, and he has taken up the life of a central literary figure in ´´The Last Titan. It is the best biographical study of Dreiser that has yet been written. Loving has an experienced hand, and he seems to know exactly where to go in the life, how to make the life available to the reader, and how to make one at least believe that this is how the great novels--´´Sister Carrie, An American Tragedy--and the other fascinating works by Dreiser got written. Loving obviously knows everything there is to know about Dreiser, and he has made an elegant selection here, fashioning a life of the author that has all the narrative momentum of a novel.´´--Jay Parini, author of ´´Robert Frost: A Life´´Jerome Loving has produced an immensely readable, lively, detailed account of Theodore Dreiser´s life, always with one eye on Dreiser´s great books. This is vivid biography, bringing the man very much to life. The streets, the newsrooms, the rented rooms, the yearning of the young Dreiser for money, fame, women, good things in life, keeps reminding the reader of Dreiser´s own Carrie and Clyde.´´--Robert D. Richardson, Jr., author of ´´Emerson: The Mind on Fire´´Jerome Loving has a real gift for biography: he has the ability to draw both the big and the small picture and to bring them into mutual focus. While the major events in Dreiser´s life are known, Loving brings an assortment of new details and intelligent conjecture to this compelling story. This will be the prevailing version of Dreiser´s life.´´--Richard Lehan, author of ´´The City in Literature: An Intellectual and Cultural History, and editor of ´´Theodore Dreiser: Sister Carrie, Jennie Gerhardt, Twelve Men A Life of Theodore Dreiser Buch (fremdspr.)

Loving, Jerome:
The Last Titan: A Life of Theodore Dreiser - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9780520234819

ID: 1713454

When Theodore Dreiser first published "Sister Carrie "in 1900 it was suppressed for its seamy plot, colloquial language, and immorality--for, as one reviewer put it, its depiction of "the godless side of American life." It was a side of life experienced firsthand by Dreiser, whose own circumstances often paralleled those of his characters in the turbulent, turn-of-the-century era of immigrants, black lynchings, ruthless industrialists, violent labor movements, and the New Woman. This masterful critical biography, the first on Dreiser in more than half a century, is the only study to fully weave Dreiser's literary achievement into the context of his life. Jerome Loving gives us a Dreiser for a new generation in a brilliant evocation of a writer who boldly swept away Victorian timidity to open the twentieth century in American literature. Dreiser was a controversial figure in his time, not only because of his literary efforts, which included publication of the brutal and heartbreaking "An American Tragedy "in 1925, but also because of his personal life, which featured numerous sexual liaisons, included membership in the communist party, merited a 180-page FBI file, and ended in Hollywood. "The Last Titan "paints a full portrait of the mature Dreiser between the two world wars--through the roaring twenties, the stock market crash, and the Depression--and describes his contact with important figures from Emma Goldman and H.L. Mencken to two presidents Roosevelt. Tracing Dreiser's literary roots in Hawthorne, Emerson, Thoreau, and especially Whitman, Loving has written what will surely become the standard biography of one of America's best novelists.
