The Selected Writings of John Jay Chapman
The Selected Writings of John Jay Chapman Author:Edited by Jacques Barzun "Mr. Barzun has done a notable service in bringing Chapman back from the shades. These essays are characterized by Chapman's ardent committal to courage, justice, and the rectified will. His material has depth and weight. His style is sure, lucid, and lit by imagery and wit." — --R. F. Deen, "Commonweal" — "Before this book appeared one read an oc... more »casional allusion to Chapman; now he will be again part of our conversation, in the living exchange of opinions and values, where in his own lifetime he tried to be a force."
--M. H. Berstein, "The Nation"
"Failing Chapman's presence, we can only be all the more grateful to Mr. Barzun that the writings of this fiery, irreconcilable, uncompromising man are once more abroad in the land."
--K. S. Lynn, "New York Herald Tribune Book Review"
"In his judgments of people Chapman was as unconventional, as free from formulas, as quick-sighted, and basically as generous as he was in other connections. The portraits of William James and President Eliot...have a novelistic dash and spiciness. Let us hope that this volume signalizes a revival of interest in Chapman and a prodding of the literary memory in that quarter."
