From the eve of the Great Depression to the start of World War II, Lynd Ward (1905-1985) observed the troubled American scene through the double lens of a politically committed storyteller and a visionary graphic artist. His medium-the wordless 'novel in woodcuts'-was his alone, and he quickly brought it from bold iconographic infancy to subtle and still unrivalled mastery. Gods' Man(1929), the audaciously ambitious work that made Ward's reputation, is a modern morality play, an allegory of the deadly bargain a striving young artist often makes with life. Madman's Drum (1930), a multigenerational saga worthy of Faulkner, traces the legacy of violence haunting a family whose stock in trade is human souls. Wild Pilgrimage (1932), perhaps the most accomplished of these early books, is a study in the brutalization of an American factory worker whose heart can still respond to beauty but whose mind is twisted in rage against the system and its shackles. Prelude to a Million Years(1933) is a dark meditation on art, inspiration, and the disparity between the ideal and the real. Song Without Words(1936), a protest against the rise of European fascism, asks if ours is a world still fit for the human soul. Vertigo(1937), Ward's undisputed masterpiece, is an epic novel on the theme of the individual caught in the downward spiral of a sinking American economy. Its characters include a young violinist, her luckless fiance, and an elderly business magnate who-movingly, and without ever becoming a political caricature-embodies the social forces determining their fate. The images reproduced in this volume are taken from prints pulled from the original woodblocks or first-generation electrotypes. The Library of America is proud to bring Ward's masterworks to a new generation of readers, together with nine illuminating essays about his craft, including those he wrote for the long out-of-print Storyteller Without Words, a 1974 retrospective. Art Spiegelman contributes an introductory essay, 'Reading Pictures,' that defines Ward's towering achievement in that most demanding of graphic-story forms, the wordless novel in woodcuts.… (lisätietoja)

This set is a beautifully bound collection of six graphic novels by Lynn Ward. All of them were written (or carved to me more precise -- they're wordless woodcuts) between 1929 and 1937. The artwork is stark, beautiful and verges on socialist realism -- except instead of the heroic workers and artists triumphing, they are typically depicted as being crushed by what Ward portrays as soulless capitalism, authoritarian police states, and simply fate. Although I didn't recognize any particular image, collectively they seemed like iconic representations of a certain age and worldview, to some degree dated and off-base, but also an interesting historical document and work of art.

The first novel in the collection, God's Man, is also one of the best. It retells Faust in a relatively simple, easy to follow series of images that works well without words. The last novel, Vertigo, is another one of the best, a considerably more complex story divided into three parts and multiple sub-parts, it is nevertheless relatively straightforward to follow and covers a vast panorama of Depression-era America. Only one novel, Madman's Drum, is a failure because it is largely incomprehensible without words, although even this one has interesting images. ( )
