Poisoned Pens: Literary Invective from Amis to Zola.

SKU: 14200

Read Shaw despising Shakespeare, Twain, Bronte, Woolf, Lawrence and Emerson finding fault with Austen, Richardson despairing of Fielding, Wordsworth turning up his nose at Scott, Hemingway mystified about T.S. Eliot, and many more. These writers, when writing about writers, are cranky, witty, snobby, bitter, petulant, and always entertaining. Frances Lincoln 2009. 240 pgs. Hb, Dj. NEW. $8.00
