Beschreibung:

Bontemps contributed vastly to the culture of his era through his own writings--fiction, plays, poetry, children's books, and criticism--and advanced it through teaching, librarianship, and as a sponsor of the arts. Jones provides a portrait of Bontemps that previously could only be glimpsed from biographies of contemporaries and published correspondence.
Arna Wendell Bontemps was a renaissance man in the broadest sense, a gentleman-scholar-poet fully engaged in the life of the intellect. He contributed vastly to the culture of his era through his own writings--fiction, plays, poetry, children's books, and criticism--and advanced it through teaching, librarianship, and as a sponsor of the arts. Utilizing copious archival, interview, and published materials, Jones fills out the portrait of Bontemps that previously could only be glimpsed from biographies of contemporaries and published correspondence.
