MARRIED TO GENIUSNutzerbericht - Book Verdict
Marriage is a fascinating topic, and who among us is immune to the allure of biographical voyeurism? Meyers (Gary Cooper: An American Hero ) studies the marriages of nine modern writers - Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, D.H. Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald - in an attempt to draw a connection between artistic commitment and marital stability. Using Jungian psychology as a touchstone, he argues not that marital conflict was inevitable, with the artist's temperament forever compromised by devotion to his or her craft, but that these artists were sustained by the love of their spouses and inspired by the conflict of marriage. Much has been written about these writers and their respective partners, but Meyers aims for precision, using material taken predominantly from letters, journals, and biographies by family members instead of relying on the more recent scholarly biographies. Though his argument remains speculative, he offers an interesting series of well-written sketches on the role of marriage in an artist's life. Recommended for academic libraries as interest warrants. - Pam Kingsbury, Univ. of North Alabama, Florence
