Description - The Letters of George Santayana, Book Five, 1933--1936 by George Santayana

During the period covered by this book, George Santayana had settled permanently in Rome. His best-selling novel, "The Last Puritan", was published in London in 1935 and in the United States in 1936, where it was chosen as a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. In 1936 Santayana became one of the few philosophers ever to appear on the front cover of Time magazine. His growing influence was evidenced further by two other 1936 publications, "Obiter Scripta: Lectures, Essays and Reviews" and "Philosophy of Santayana: Selections From the Works of George Santayana". Also during this year the first six volumes of the Triton Edition, a limited signed edition with significant new prefaces, was published by Scribner's. Santayana continued work on "The Realm of Truth" and "The Realm of Spirit", as well as his autobiography, "Persons and Places". The book includes letters to Wendell T. Bush, Henry Seidel Canby, Curt John Ducasse, Max Forrester Eastman, Sidney Hook, Horace Meyer Kallen, Corliss Lamont, Ralph Barton Perry, William Lyon Phelps, and John Herman Randall. A number of the letters comment on his contemporaries, such as John Dewey, T.S. Eliot, G.E. Moore, Ezra Pound, and Bertrand Russell.
