Description
 
Louise DeSalvo (au). “Every creative act is a declaration of war,” wrote Henry Miller. This fascinating book examines the motive of revenge as a catalyst for the creative process. Evoking Bloomsbury & Paris in the twenties & thirties, acclaimed biographer Louise DeSalvo focuses on four famous literary partnerships where the written word was used as a weapon of revenge. Contents: Leonard & Virginia Woolf & “The Wise Virgins”; D. H. Lawrence & Ottoline Morrell & “Women in Love”; Djuna Barnes & “The Antiphon”; & Henry Miller & June Miller & “Crazy Cock”. It will challenge our conceptions of how & why great works of literature are written.
