Product Description

The author’s strange and sinuous tour de force has become a classic of modernist and lesbian literature since its first publication in 1936. Set in Berlin, Paris, and Vienna during the decadent period between the two World Wars, Nightwood “belongs to that small class of books that somehow reflect a time or an epoch.” Nightwood is the story of Robin Vote and those she destroys – her husband the “Baron,” their child Guido, and the two women, Nora and Jenny, who love her; the whole is illuminated by the fantastic monologues of the renegade doctor Matthew O’Connor. Most striking of all is Barnes’s unparalleled stylistic innovation, which led T. S. Eliot to proclaim the book “so good a novel that only sensibilities train on poetry can wholly appreciate it.” 182p.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes's 1946 novel has been called a classic of both modernist and lesbian literature. Set in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, the story follows Robin Vote and the family and friends whose lives she ruins. This edition contains T.S. Eliot's original intro and a new preface by Jeanette Winterson.
