Ronald Firbank : An Annotated Bibliography of Secondary Materials, 1905-1995
Following the much-deserved rediscovery of early modernist Ronald Firbank's works in the 1980s, this annotated bibliography collects reviews of the satirist's books, synopses of books and essays about Firbank, references to creative works inspired by the author, dissertation and theses abstracts, and even a chapter of foreign-language materials devoted to Firbank. Showcasing an underappreciated artist, this bibliography is a record of how Ronald Firbank has been misinterpreted, praised, lost, and found again.
