    One thought on “The Shores of Light: A Literary Chronicle of the Twenties & Thirties”

    1. A very long compilation of Wilson's essays in the New Republic from the twenties and thirties. It fascinated me with the at the time judgments and criticisms that were later to be spot on and sometimes rather off. For instance, he gets Fitzgerald right even before The Great Gatsby but fails to be excited about Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, E.E. Cummings etc. Some of this is partly due to the personal nature of his relationships - he knew Fitzgerald but probably did not have anything to do with [...]

    2. I have a very hard time being too critical of Edmund Wilson as a writer and critic. While I may not agree with him sometimes, I was first sucked into the world of literary criticism plus politics when I read his To the Finland Station/.

    3. If you truly want to go inside of the 20s and 30s from the perspective of everyone's "frienemy", read this. Wilson's tribute to Millay in the final essay is the most beautiful eulogy I've read.
