⌜ Hardcover Read [ Let Us Now Praise Famous Men: Three Tenant Families ] ৊ Book By James Agee ᠇ ⌜ Hardcover Read [ Let Us Now Praise Famous Men: Three Tenant Families ] ৊ Book By James Agee ᠇ Just what kind of book is Let Us Now Praise Famous Men It contains many things poems confessional reveries disquisitions on the proper way to listen to Beethoven snippets of dialogue, both real and imagined a lengthy response to a survey from the Partisan Review exhaustive catalogs of furniture, clothing, objects, and smells And then there are Walker Evans s famously stark portraits of depression era sharecroppers photographs that both stand apart from and reinforce James Agee s words Assigned to do a story for Fortune magazine about sharecroppers in the Deep South, Agee and Evans spent four weeks living with a poor white tenant family, winning the Burroughs s trust and immersing themselves in a sharecropper s daily existence Given a first draft of the resulting article, the editors at Fortune quite understandably threw up their hands as did several other editors who subsequently worked with a later book length manuscript The writing was contrary It refused to accommodate itself to the reader, and at times it positively bristled with hostility What other book could take Marx as the epigraph and then announce These words are quoted here to mislead those who will be misled by them Response to the book was puzzled or unfriendly, and Let Us Now Praise Famous Men sputtered out of print only a few short years after its publication It took the 1960s, and a vogue for social justice, to bring Agee s masterwork the audience it deserved. Yet the book is far interesting aesthetically and morally than the sort of guilty liberal tract for which it is often mistaken On an existential level, Agee s text is a deeply felt examination of what it means to suffer, to struggle to live in spite of suffering On a personal level, it is the painful, beautifully written portrait of one man s obsession In its collaboration with Evans s photographs, the book is also a groundbreaking experiment in form In the end, however, it is than merely the sum of its parts Let Us Now Praise Famous Men is, quite simply, a book unlike any other, simmering with anger and beauty and mystery Mary ParkAgee s textual portraits and Evans s photographic records of three sharecropper families in the South instantly became, when published in 1939, one of the most brutally revealing records of an America that was ignored by society a class of people whose level of poverty left them as spiritually, mentally, and physically worn as the land on which they toiled Time has done nothing to decrease this book s power This handsome edition sports the original text plus 64 new archival photos Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
