Some of West's earliest writings--devastatingly funny, fiercely feminist and socialist--now have been rescued from obscurity and published with Jane Marcus's excellent commentary in The Young Rebecca." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch Thanks to Marcus's arduous labor of selection, we have here a living, breathing evocation of the early feminist and socialist movements in England as recorded by a highly opinionated participant." --Jessica Mitford The Young Rebecca reflects [West's] consuming interest in feminist and socialist issues. Quite apart from their technical excellence, these articles are remarkable because they were produced by a girl barely out of her teens, and because many of them read as if they were written last Tuesday." --The Atlanta Journal ... a fierce and funny scourge of establishment figures... her prose sparkles... " --Book World, The Washington Post Jane Marcus brings together some of Rebecca West's early journalistic writings, collected here for the first time, which reveal West's passionate responses to political and literary events as well as her experience in the suffrage campaign. Included are articles from The Freewoman, The Clarion, and the Daily News, among more
