LOST GENERATION: AMERICAN WRITERS IN PARIS IN THE 1920S

by Michael Shelden | Read by Michael Shelden

History • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Michael Shelden's lectures evoke the bittersweet imagery, scents, and sensibilities of the literary history that graced the Right and Left Banks of Paris between the World Wars. Professor Shelden’s (Indiana State University) narration style is characterized by wry wit, passion, humor, and audible regret for having been born a few generations too late to have been part of 1920s Paris. The City of Light was the alluring backdrop for the creative energies of such authors as James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and Ezra Pound. Shelden provides fresh insights into the lavish influences and vibrant environment that so transformed and nurtured the craft of these talented writers. As Shelden wistfully states, "They not only lived in Paris, Paris lived on in them." A.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
