In Dreams Begin Responsibilities and Other Stories

In Dreams Begin Responsibilities and Other Stories Schwartz, Delmore

This is the first British publication of a seminal work of twentieth century fiction, rediscovering Delmore Schwartz for a new generation of readers. Delmore Schwartz became the voice of a new generation, when In Dreams Begin Responsibilities was published in the debut issue of 'Partisan Review' in 1937. His influence on other writers was immediate and is still enormous; he was an unfluence on Philip Roth and Saul Bellow, whose Humboldt's Gift is a fictionalised account of Bellow's own relationship with Schwartz. Delmore Schwartz is the only writer to be memorialised in a song by Lou Reed and also in one of John Berryman's Dream Songs. Despite his early promise and achievement Delmore Schwartz died destitute in a New York hotel in 1966. In Dreams Begin Responsibilities and Other Stories collects eight of Schwartz's finest stories; including the seminal In Dreams Begin Responsibilities, the foundation for all post-World War Two American-Jewish fiction. Delmore Schwartz found a vernacular language for the generational conflicts and self-analysis of educated and ambitious young people in conflict with their immigrant parents that is still captivating.
