2 The Lost Generation Gertrude Stein coined the term in 1924 to refer to the young American writers who had worn the uniform in the First World War. She told Hemingway: That s what you are. That s what you all are. All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation. You have no respect for anything. You drink yourselves to death " Hemingway popularized the term by using it as an epigraph for his 1926 novel, The Sun Also Rises. However, he later wrote to his editor Max Perkins that the "point of the book" was not so much about a generation being lost, but that "the earth abideth forever"; he believed the characters in the novel may have been battered but were not lost. In his 1964 memoir of his years in Paris, A Moveable Feast, Hemingway wrote: I tried to balance Miss Stein s quotation with one from Ecclesiastes I thought who is calling who a lost generation? the hell with her lost-generation talk and all the dirty, easy labels Gertrude is nice, But she does talk a lot of rot sometimes. Critic Malcolm Cowley, himself of that generation of American writers, proposes the term World War I Generation to describe American writers born in the 15 years from 1891 to 1905 who came of age during the First War and who started publishing their first books in the 1920 s and 1930 s. An early leader of that group is F. Scott Fitzgerald who defined a literary generation as:.by a generation I mean that reaction against the fathers. It is distinguished by a set of ideas, inherited in moderated form from the madmen and outlaws of the generation before; if it is a real generation it has its own leaders and spokesmen, and it draws into its orbit those born just before it and just after. Cowley compiled a list of 385 names of American writers in this age bracket who distinguished themselves in all literary fields. In fiction, poetry, and drama alone, these writers collected 19 Pulitzers, 10 National Book Awards, and 5 Nobel Prizes for Literature. Cowley judges the period and the works created to have been a second flowering of American literature--the first American Renaissance having been the 1850 s & 1860 s graced by Emerson, Melville, Whitman, Hawthorne and Thoreau. Another critic, Van Wyck Brooks said the WW I generation was the most dramatic period in American literature. We have chosen to represent this second flowering of American writing in this catalog with the work of 24 authors categorized as follows. Of course, this is just a sampling. We have many more First Editions of the Lost Generation in stock. The Early American Trinity: Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot & Ezra Pound The Paris Big 3: Hemingway, Fitzgerald & John Dos Passos Mystery Masters: Dashiell Hammett & John M. Cain Other Masters: Faulkner, Henry Miller, Katherine Anne Porter, John Marquand & Thomas Wolfe Three Poets, A Humorist & A Critic: Hart Crane, EE Cummings, Archibald MacLeish, James Thurber & Edmund Wilson The Younger Set: Steinbeck, Erskine Caldwell, John O Hara, James Farrell & Robert Penn Warren The Lost Generation writers have had an impact on the next generation of American writers, and are highly valued by collectors. Norman Mailer entered Harvard intending to become an engineer, but decided to be a writer after spending a summer vacation reading James T. Farrell, Dos Passos and Steinbeck. In Christie s May 2000 auction, a collector paid $248,000 for Hemingway s autographed handwritten draft of his short story, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber. In June last year, F. Scott Fitzgerald s The Great Gatsby sold for $180,000 at Bonham s auction house in New York.

Often Miss Stein would have no guests and she was always very friendly.

Critics saw Caldwell as a literary realist and sociologist, whose works painted a naturalistic portrait of rural poverty. Caldwell once explained that his aim was "describing to the best of my ability the aspirations and despair of the people I wrote about". Part of the publicity for this book came from the fact that the New York Society for the Prevention of Vice tried to have it banned for its sexuality. Erskine took the case to court and won. The 1958 film version starring Robert Ryan, Tina Louise, Aldo Ray, and Michael Landon, was promoted as: "Rousing, rollicking and ribald, God's Little Acre is a rustic revel with the kick of Georgian mule. $70 Erskine Caldwell.
