ABSTRACT
Presents views of Alfred Kazin on writer Edmund Wilson. Information on Wilson's reading habits; Information regarding languages known to Wilson; Interest of Wilson in his ancestry; Details on medals received by Wilson; Bitterness of Wilson on the subject of America's power-drive; Opinion of Wilson on civil war; Information that what Wilson wrote dealt so much with the plight of personality, his fascination with his own family, his need to involve himself with other people, that one could see even in his every sentence the extraordinary effort he put out, by words alone, to free himself from bookish solitude. INSET: Edmund Wilson on The New Republic.
