Reading a bit of Virginia Spencer Carr’s bio of John Dos Passos for a writing gig. She writes that in 1916, Harvard did not yet have a single course in American literature. Nor did any university except Princeton. That’s a remarkable thing. That buy dostinex truly explains the mind of a Lost Generation writer. Hemingway, Dos Passos, Faulkner et al–they were jumping into the abyss. It’s no surprise that such high marks went to the first Americans to challenge Europe in the realm of English-language literature.
The 3rd Biennial John Dos Passos Society Conference was held June 20-22, 2018 at the Geographical Society of Lisbon. It was a marvelous success. Thanks everyone! For more information about the Society, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“About style—I think that reading people in order to get ‘style’ from them is rather soft-headed. Your style is like the color of your hair or the cut of your pants—half accident, half act of God—to take thought to change or improve it results usually in rank affectation.”
