To mark James Gould Cozzenss sevenshy;ty-fifth birthday, 19 August 1978, the Southern Illinois University Press in conjunction with Harcourt Brace Jovanshy;ovich takes exceptional pride in pubshy;lishing this rich sampling of the work of a master novelist. nbsp; James Gould Cozzens, whose literarycareer has spanned 13novels and 54 years, was born in Chicago in 1903.After graduation from Kent School in Connecticut he entered Harvard Unishy;versity in 1922,which he left in 1924 to devote his full time to writing. His excellence as a writer has been recogshy;nized by critics and the public alike. Six of his books were Book-of-the-Month Club selections.Guard of Honorwas awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Ficshy;tion, andBy Love Possessedoneof the notable best sellers in contemporary fictionwon the Howells Medal of The American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1960 (an award which is conferred every five years for that periods most distinguished work of American fiction). nbsp; Cozzenss dedication to his craft has produced a body of fiction unsurpassed in its fidelity to life and its hard intelshy;ligence. Since the 1930s he has been unchallenged in his ability to portray the professional man in American socishy;ety and has written the best American novels about clergymen, lawyers, and military men. nbsp; Matthew J. Bruccoli, the editor of this volume, notes in his Introduction that James Gould Cozzens has sought to write only to say as precisely as he can what by standards of his own he judged worth saying, standards which seem best summed up in the dictum from Samuel Johnson from which the main title of this work is taken: Nothshy;ing can please many, and please long, but just representations of general nature. nbsp; The complete novel and the selecshy;tions from six of Cozzenss major novels included here furnish a comprehensive overview of and an introduction to the canon of a major American novelist. The book provides a permanently usable collection for new readers of James Gould Cozzens as well as an omnibus for the initiated.
