Über diesen Titel


Includes index.

From Library Journal:

This companion to Whittemore's recent Pure Lives (which dealt with the origins of biography and with ancient through early modern biographers) starts with Carlyle's "inwardly driven (but hardly sexually driven) heroes" and moves adroitly through Freud and Bloomsbury to the contemporary likes of Mailer's Marilyn . The last chapter, with Whittemore browsing a public library's A-Z biography range and contemplating its significance, is a gem. The writing is fine, and the reader is constantly, actively engaged in the large question: What is biography? This and its forerunner are essential reading for anyone interested in biography as a genre. Oddly (perhaps because it seems to have been underreviewed), the libraries holding Pure Lives are overwhelmingly academic. Larger public libraries take note: this work is highly recommended.
