Van Wyck Brooks

Author Code: AVWB

Born: Feb. 16, 1886 - Plainfield, New Jersey, USA

Died: May 2, 1963 - Bridgewater, Connecticut, USA

Educated at Harvard University, Brooks graduated in 1908. He then lived in London for a year and wrote The Wine of the Puritans, placing the blame for the shortcomings of American literary culture squarely on their shoulders. Brooks became a highly respected literary critic and in 1916 became the associate editor of The Seven Arts. In 1920, he published The Ordeal of Mark Twain, which was highly acclaimed. He suffered a breakdown in 1925 and his criticism of nineteenth century American literary traditions was thereafter very relaxed. During the 1930s, he produced the Makers and Finders series which surveyed and chronicled nineteenth century American literature. In 1937, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History and in 1953 he received the Theodore Roosevelt Distinguished Service Medal. His works include The Malady of the Ideal (1913), John Addington Symonds (1914), The World of H. G. Wells (1915), The Pilgrimage of Henry James (1925), The Life of Emerson (1932), The Flowering of New England, 1815-1865 (1936), New England: Indian Summer, 1865-1914 (1940), The World of Washington Irving (1944), The Times of Melville and Whitman (1947), The Confident Years: 1885-1915 (1952), Helen Keller (1956), Howells: His Life and Work (1959) and An Autobiography (1965 Posthumous).
