The Visioning by Susan Glaspell

The Visioning, Susan Glaspell’s second novel, tells about Katie Jones, a young woman who lives in the comfortable world she knows with a charming circle of friends. Her brother is an army officer, and her uncle lives in Washington. The world she knows is the world they let her see. Until Anne comes into the picture. Katie saves Anne from killing herself. Katie invents a story about Anne, a story which suits Katie’s world, but what would she do, and feel, when she discovers the truth? The story focuses around Katie’s eye opening experiences and her search for place and meaning in the new world she slowly discovers. Glaspell’s usual charm and witty observation, this book is a wonderful read. It could also be of interest to fans of Virginia Woolf’s “Night And Day.

The Last Chronicle of Barset

The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope

The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope

Both Trollope and some of his later critics have considered The Last Chronicle to be his greatest novel. Many of its characters are familiar from the earlier Barsetshire novels, including the Rev. Josiah Crawley, the impoverished curate of Hogglestock, whose alleged theft of £20, together with the efforts of many to clear up the mystery, lie here at the center. Central also is the trying courtship between Major Grantly and Grace Crawley, the clergyman’s daughter, over the objections of the Major’s parents, Archeacon Grantly and his wife; and the adventures of Johnny Eames, a protagonist of the Small House at Allington. Finally, it is in The Last Chronicle that Bishop Proudie of Barsetshire and his domineering wife, introduced in Barchester Towers, achieve their fullest and most dramatic portrayal.

The Trail of the Hawk

The Trail of the Hawk by Sinclair Lewis

The Trail of the Hawk by Sinclair Lewis

Trail of the Hawk, is Sinclair Lewis’ second novel published under his own name. It was not at the time of release a smashing success as his later works, Babbitt, Elmer Gantry, and others, but his style and immense talent are certainly evident.

We travel with The Hawk, or Carl Ericson, son of Norwegian immigrants, born at the end of the 19th century through the first three adventurous periods of the young man’s life. We see him as an adventurous boy, running away with Gertie Cowels, the girl that lives in the big house in the better part of town, only to be rescued by Bone Stillman, a backwoods philosopher and influence on Carl.

We travel with him as he leaves his childhood, Gertie and Joralemon behind, for a short attempt at higher education, then to pursue the hobo life, a Bowery bartender, an engineer in Panama and an aviator. It is during the aviator phase that he becomes Hawk Ericson barnstorming his way across America, an exciting but dangerous lifestyle. Leaving aviation after too many close calls, and the loss of his best friend, he becomes an automobile man, and moves into phase three.

It is in phase three, love adventure, that we find The Hawk in New York, mingling with polite society quite by accident. He is smitten by Ruth Winslow, while riding on a streetcar after a fight with Gertie, and follows Ruth to a party which he crashes.

Lover’s Vows

Lover's Vows by Elizabeth Inchbald

Lover's Vows by Elizabeth Inchbald

Lovers’ Vows, a play by Elizabeth Inchbald arguably best known now for having been featured in Jane Austen’s novel Mansfield Park, is one of at least four adaptations of August von Kotzebue’s Das Kind der Liebe (literally “Child of Love,” or “Natural Son,” as it is often translated). Inchbald’s version is the only one to have been performed. Dealing as it does with sex outside marriage and illegitimate birth, Inchbald in the Preface to the published version declares herself to have been highly sensitive to the task of adapting the original German text for “an English audience.” Even so, she left the setting as Germany.
