"The Literary Legacy of Rebecca West" is the first book to explore the entire corpus of her extraordinary seventy-one year writing career. The general introductory studies of West are outdated and do not take into account her posthumous publications, or her large literary archive of unpublished letters and manuscripts. Previous scholarly books have chopped West up into categories and genres instead of following the evolution of her career. Rollyson, author of "Rebecca West: A Saga of the Century," draws on new scholarship and his interviews with West's contemporaries to provide the first organic account of her esthetic and political vision.
