Writers on the Left: Episodes in American Literary Communismby Daniel Aaron
Writers on the Left chronicles the involvement of American writers with the progressive and radical movement from its bohemian origins in 1912 to its disillusionment and demise in the early 1940s. Aaron creates a perceptive and often poignant portrait of writers such as Max Eastman and Floyd Dell, who tried to wed the seemingly conflicting impulses behind the need for uninhibited artistic expression and to abolish the inequalities of class and race.
