Pointed Roofs By Dorothy M. Richardson
Paperback: $17.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
From the INTRODUCTION by May Sinclair. I HAVE been asked to write a criticism of the novels of Dorothy Richardson. I do not know whether this essay is or is not going to be a criticism, for so soon... More > as I begin to think what I shall say I find myself criticising criticism, wondering what is the matter with it and what, if anything, can be done to make it better, to make it alive. Only a live criticism can deal appropriately with a live art. And it seems to me that the first step towards life is to throw off the philosophic cant of the nineteenth century. I don't mean that there is no philosophy of Art, or that if there has been there is to be no more of it; I mean that it is absurd to go on talking about realism and idealism, or objective and subjective art, as if the philosophies were sticking where they stood in the eighties....< Less

The Tunnel By Dorothy M. Richardson
Paperback: $17.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
"The Tunnel," by Dorothy Richardson, is a continuation of the series which started in "Pilgrimage" and passed on through "Pointed Roofs," "Backwater" and... More > "Honeymoon." In "The Tunnel" the heroine gives up impoverished gentility for still more impoverished freedom, and becomes secretary to a London dental establishment at a pound a week. "The process," a reviewer in the Atlantic remarks, "is more than a little suggestive of post-impressionism and of the most skillful work of the imagists. Its mainsprings are, first, the immemorial urge to expression, and, after that, a uniquely responsive sense of the livingness of life." --Current Opinion, Vol. 68< Less
Backwater By Dorothy M. Richardson
Paperback: $16.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
“In 'Backwater' Miss Dorothy Richardson continues the life story of a young English girl which she began in ‘Pointed roofs.’ Miriam Henderson was then -- many years before the war... More > -- a teacher in a German school in Hanover. She is now home in England. She is just eighteen, 'has put up her hair today' in preparation for her career as a resident governess in a school for the daughters of gentlemen.... Miriam's is not a very large world. with its family of sisters, their chat! and slang and raptures, their music and books and friends and lovers. . . . Nor is there much incident in it -- the last gay little dance before the crash. the few weeks' seaside holiday at Brighton, the visit to the Crystal palace on firework night, and the raw, noisy, suburban routine at Wordsworth house. Miss Richardson’s tacit but essential assumption is that life is an intensely real and rich, a desperately complex and wonderful, experience, however commonplace its circumstances may be." --The Times [London]< Less
Honeycomb By Dorothy M. Richardson
Paperback: $16.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
“Honeycomb” is not verse masquerading as a novel. It is an honest narrative, searching, living—fantastic only to those who cannot feel these very modern ways of looking at the... More > world. The author has simply had the audacity to tell her story of this sensitive girl, neither child nor woman, from the attitude and with the values that those gifted young poets feel who have made us recognize in their naive, cool vision of beauty, and in their sense of flowing life, new vistas of our own. This writer knows the cruelty of life as well as the high, clear, clean, fresh, fair things, for which her Miriam has so intense a love. I wonder if so completely feminine a novel as “Pilgrimage” has ever been written. --Randolph Bourne for The Dial, Vol. 64.< Less
