John Dos Passos and Cinema

Lisa Nanney

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

  • This book is the first published study of John Dos Passos's screen writing
  • Includes portions of previously unpublished materials: Dos Passos's writing for the screen, planning notes and drafts, and correspondence about the film industry
  • Explores and evaluates the impact on his work of the political departure from the Left and alignment with conservatism that has become a critical crux of Dos Passos scholarship
  • Reveals new insights into how the anti-Communism that pervaded both his fiction and nonfiction after 1937 affected Dos Passos aesthetically as well as politically.
