Description

In American Women Writers Thomas Austenfeld restores ethics and politics to the central places they .

In American Women Writers Thomas Austenfeld restores ethics and politics to the central places they held in the lives and work of these four women. By documenting the political and ethical apprenticeships each woman served in Germany and Austria, Austenfeld convincingly argues that the genius of these writers exists precisely in their ability to continue the development of their best creative sensibilities-in spite of and indeed because of the ethical challenges they faced as women writers in the tense prewar world.

by Thomas Carl Austenfeld. As expatriates in Germany and Austria in the 1930s, Kay Boyle, Katherine Anne Porter, Jean Stafford, and Lillian Hellman saw the rise of Nazi ideology firsthand. And while all four clearly realized-as their work demonstrates-that ethical behavior is the personal corollary of political conviction, scholars of these important American writers have long neglected the significance of the mingling of writing, ethics, and politics in their work.

Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) was the first philosopher to write his most significant works in English, but claimed for De Cive, one of his Latin works, the distinction of first establishing politics on a scientific basis. He took geometry to be the science of space, and geometry was his model for science. Human nature, he argued, makes political institutions necessary, and his views on sovereignty.

As expatriates in Germany and Austria in the 1930s, Kay Boyle, Katherine Anne Porter, Jean Stafford, and Lillian Hellman saw the rise of Nazi ideology firsthand. And while all four clearly realized―as their work demonstrates―that ethical behavior is the personal corollary of political conviction, scholars of these important American writers have long neglected the significance of the mingling of writing, ethics, and politics in their work.

In American Women Writers Thomas Austenfeld restores ethics and politics to the central places they held in the lives and work of these four women. By documenting the political and ethical apprenticeships each woman served in Germany and Austria, Austenfeld convincingly argues that the genius of these writers exists precisely in their ability to continue the development of their best creative sensibilities―in spite of and indeed because of the ethical challenges they faced as women writers in the tense prewar world.

Kay Boyle's analysis of the language and cultural expression of occupation, Lillian Hellman's exposure of diplomatic language as furthering war, Katherine Anne Porter's implicit critique of Weimar Germany's class consciousness, and Jean Stafford's searching meditations on guilt and responsibility all argue afresh for the pragmatic goals that fiction and drama can serve in a politically unstable world.

It's not just that Thomas Austenfeld expands our understanding of American literature by grouping together for the very first time four remarkable women writers. Nor is it simply that in discussing the respective experiences of Katherine Anne Porter, Kay Boyle, Jean Stafford, and Lillian Hellman in Nazi Germany he creates a more comprehensive picture of the American expatriate experience. Ultimately what makes this intelligent and sprightly volume so enjoyable and worthwhile is the way in which Austenfeld writes a completely new chapter of American literary history in a manner that is informed, judicious, wise, and imminently readable.

This book is not worth the time. Only libraries, craving other points of view, should buy this.
