Conor Cruise O'Brien's penetrative examining of Albert Camus, Nobel laureate and writer of L'Étranger and La Peste, used to be initially released in 1970.
'O'Brien's Camus is outstanding. whereas having been himself profoundly moved by way of Camus's paintings, he asks why scholars have so frequently misinterpreted him.' Marghanita Laski, The Times
'[Camus] monitors O'Brien's cultivated intelligence at its such a lot joyous pitch, and . . . demonstrates his precise serious expertise . . . [O'Brien] demonstrates that Camus was once faraway from being an exemplar of the really self sustaining highbrow and that his notion of "Mediterranean tradition" served to legitimise France's ownership of Algeria . . . O'Brien's prose has a candy rigour as he first explores Camus's feel of estrangement and unreality, after which areas his paintings inside a social context.' Tom Paulin, Times Literary Supplement

By David Dowling
In vigorous and provocative writing, David Dowling strikes past a examine of the emotional toll that this quandary in self-definition had on writers to ascertain how 3 units of authors—in pairings of fellows and ladies: Harriet Wilson and Henry David Thoreau, Fanny Fern and Walt Whitman, and Rebecca Harding Davis and Herman Melville—engaged with and remodeled the publication marketplace. What have been their reviews of the capitalism that was once reworking the realm round them? How did they reply to the altering industry that got here to outline their very luck as authors? How used to be the position of ladies motivated via those conditions?
Capital Letters concludes with a desirable and bold transhistorical comparability of the way celebrity authors—Herman Melville within the 19th century and Stephen King today—have negotiated the moving terrain of the literary market. the result's a major contribution to our figuring out of print tradition and literary work.

As writers and filmmakers collaborate, Duong means that they lay the basis for either transnational feminist politics and queer opinions of patriarchy.
