New York: Ballantine Books. 1966. 5th Printing. xx, 428 pp. Black & white photographs precede text. In the summer of 1936, James Agee and Walker Evans set out on assignment for Fortune magazine to explore the daily lives of sharecroppers in the South. Their journey would prove an extraordinary collaboration and a watershed literary event when in 1941 LET US NOW PRAISE FAMOUS MEN was first published to enormous critical acclaim. This unsparing record of place, of the people who shaped the land, and of the rhythm of their lives was called intensely moving and unrelentingly honest, and is renowned for its fusion of social conscience and artistic radicality (New York Times). Today it stands as a poetic tract of its time, recognized by the New York Public Library as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. With an elegant new design as well as a sixty-four-page photographic prologue of Evans's classic images, reproduced from archival negatives, this sixtieth anniversary edition reintroduces the legendary author and photographer to a new generation. KEYWORDS: LET US NOW PRAISE FAMOUS MEN JAMES AGEE WALKER EVANS INCLUDES SEVERAL BLACK & WHITE PHOTOS SHATTERING DEPRESSION DOCUMENTARY Condition Notes: 1973 5th printing. A few light cover creases, pages toned.
