Product description


'...provides a fascinating insight into the mindset of the early Twentieth-Century literary 'modernists'.' -- Jonathan Bate, Sunday Telegraph, 26 January 2003,

'Butts' journals are like a bag packed in a hurry, untidy, incomplete, but full of wonderful surprises'. -- Alan Taylor


British modernist writer Mary Butts (1890-1937), now recognized as one of the most important and original authors of the interwar years, lived an unconventional life. She encountered many of the most famous figures in early 20th-century literature, music and art - among them T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce and Gertrude Stein - and came to know some of them intimately. These luminaries figure prominently in journals in which Butts chronicled the development of her craft between 1916 and her untimely death in 1937. This volume contains her journals. Introduced and annotated by Nathalie Blondel, an authority on Butts's life and works, the book reveals the workings of a complex and distinctive mind while offering insights into her fascinating era.
