THE REMARKABLE KINSHIP OF MARJORIE KINNAN RAWLINGS AND ELLEN GLASGOW

Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 2018. First edition. Hardcover. During the last year of her life, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings took on the arduous task of collecting materials toward a biography she intended to write on her deceased friend, Ellen Glasgow. The two authors met through correspondences they exchanged about their novels. Glasgow was drawn to Rawlings's sympathy for animals and enthusiasm for nature. Rawlings discovered in Glasgow a writer who was able to articulate the same experiences she underwent when beginning and finishing writing projects. In 'The Remarkable Kinship of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Ellen Glasgow', Ashley Lear examines the documents collected by Rawlings on Glasgow, along with her personal notes, to better understand the experiences that brought these two women writers together and the importance of literary friendships between women writers. 251 pages with index. A near fine copy bound in slick illustrated boards, issued without dust jacket. Item #15282
