Letters of James Gibbons Huneker
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Letters of James Gibbons Huneker (1922) is a collection of correspondence from American writer James Huneker.
From the publisher:
These letters have all the brilliance of his essays, but a greater spontaneity and if possible a more vivid spirit.
Among the people to whom they are written are Royal Cortissoz, Henry Cabot Lodge, Richard Aldrich, H. E. Krehbiel, Benjamin de Casseres, W. C. Brownell, Walter Pritchard Eaton, William Marion Reedy, Mrs. Gilbert, Elizabeth Jordan, Frida Ashforth, Emma Eames, Henry James, Jr., etc.
Every page is alive with pointed comment, brilliant characterization, and vivid portraiture. Bohemian and literary New York of the last several decades is mirrored in these letters.
