Read full description of the books Five Novels:

Terribly torn here, sitting at my desk and thinking on Ronald Firbank. I can't call him BURIED. For shame, if only because for what I think he represents in regard to fictioning, he is at a minimum UNDERREAD, like everything by Djuna Barnes that is NOT Nightwood. But, let's be a bit Frank about Firbank: ESSENTially he has two volumes of importance, Five Novels and 3 More Novels: Vainglory, Inclinations, Caprice {also there exists The Complete Firbank} plus there's some stories and plays and other assorted things (which must constitute enough to require a bibliography by Mr Moore, Ronald Firbank: An Annotated Bibliography of Secondary Materials, 1905-1995, which is perhaps more a story of BURIAL than anything else); and so Firbank has 197 ratings (mostly for what's included in those two novel collections) and 44 reviews, with 44 ratings alone to the Five Novels. Not quite BURIED today, but jeebuz, he deserves muchmuch moremore reading.

ME? I've only read the first novel(la) of Five Novels and, well, I like it. I can't say I know what I can say about it now two years removed from that reading, but he is doing something which, I suspect, only Firbank can do/has done. Maybe the closest I can guess today would be a continum with early Hawkes?

If much is known by too many it would be Susan Sontag's inclusion of Firbank as an example of what she famously describes as "camp." I still don't know what she means because I've not yet read the essay, but here it is: http://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/ir...
