PAUL ENGLE, ERNEST DIMNET and SUSAN ERTZ
Extremely rare signatures from the three authors, with Dimnet dating his 1937, Ertz 1932, and Engle 1938
Autograph sentiment signed: "November 18th 1932/Susan Ertz/24 Tedwork Square,/London. S.W.Z.", "Dec. 6. 1937/Ernest Dimnet/ indefitgably happy here", "Paul Engle/Jan. 25, 1938", 5½x8½. ERNEST DIMNET (1866-1954) was a French cleric, author and philosopher. His works include The Bronte Sisters, The Art of Thinking (both 1930) and What We Live By (1932). American author PAUL ENGLE (1908-1991) was best remembered as the director of Iowa Writers' Workshop, in addition to his poems, novels, literary critiques, and plays. Although often confused as the creator of the Workshop, Engle only served as the director, though he arguably contributed the most input and dedication. His leadership helped attract several prominent writers to Iowa including Robert Lowell, John Berryman, Robie Macauley, and Kurt Vonnegut. He also oversaw the work of future writers Flannery O'Connor and Raymond Carver. After staying with the program for over 20 years, Engle left permanently in 1969 to run the University of Iowa's International Writing Program with his wife, earning a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for his work. Among his writings include a novel, a memoir, collections of poetry, and a libretto. SUSAN ERTZ (1894-1985) was a British novelist, publishing 22 works in her career. Her novels tended to focus on a sheltered female character that is put out into harsh society, and has to overcome trials and tribulations in order to survive. Most popular of her novels is her The Proselyte, which follows the marriage of a British woman to an American Mormon man. Her 1960 novel In the Cool of the Day was turned into a film starring Jane Fonda. Binding holes on left margin. Heavily toned. Fine condition.
