The common opinion since the Second World War has been that political involvement, especially socialist or communist, has had a disastrous effect upon writers' integrity. In this first major reassessment of the subject in 25 years, Eric Homberger argues that writers as diverse as Upton Sinclair, Jack London, John Reed and Edmund Wilson turned to radicalism out of humane motives. They were not the dupes or victims of an alien ideology; even in their socialism or communism American writers were still Americans, imbued with populist, individualist and democratic assumptions. They seldom found political involvement a simple matter. If there is one distinctive note which this study brings out, it is that the writers discussed were often equivocal, and not dogmatic, about their radicalism. Homberger traces the evolution of three generations of writers. The first is represented by chapters on Jack London and Upton Sinclair. The authors of the two most important books by socialists in America (THE JUNGLE and THE IRON HEEL), Sinclair and London had strikingly different conceptions of socialism and of the hopes for revolution in America. The second generation, that which came of age with THE MASSES in 1914, is represented by John Reed. The third generation were those who fought the literary class war in the 1930s. This, the most studied period of literary radicalism, is in crucial ways among the least well-understood. Includes complete index.
