In my opinion Agee s column is the most remarkable regular event in American journalism today W H Auden br br James Agee was passionately involved with the movies throughout his life A master of both fiction and nonfiction he wrote about film in clean smart prose as the reviewer for Time magazine and as a columnist for The Nation Agee was particularly perceptive about the work of his friend John Huston and recognized the artistic merit of certain B films such as The Curse of the Cat People and other movies produced by Val Lewton, In James Agee wrote a word piece about Brooklyn for i Fortune i magazine The editors shelved the article because of creative differences apparently Agee s finely detailed rhapsody didn t fit the editors designs for a New York City special issue In any case it remained unpublished until when it appeared with the somewhat incongruous title Southeast of the Island With this edition a new generation of readers will be introduced to perhaps the finest prose description of Brooklyn that singular borough, James Agee whose death at the age of cut short a brilliant career in American letters is best known to millions of readers for his posthumous novel i A Death in the Family i br br In i The Morning Watch i his only other published novel the extraordinary power of language and the themes that so moved readers of i A Death in the Family i may already be seen In prose of astonishing clarity and intensity Agee captured the portrait of an appealing and very real boy serious pitiable funny at the moment of his initiation into a feared yet fascinating world, James Agee brought to bear all his moral energy slashing wit and boundless curiosity in the criticism and journalism that established him as one of the commanding literary voices of America at mid century In W H Auden called Agee s film reviews for i The Nation i the most remarkable regular event in American journalism today Those columns along with much of the movie criticism that Agee wrote for i Time i through most of the s were collected posthumously in i Agee on Film Reviews and Comments i undoubtedly the most influential writings on film by an American br br Whether reviewing a Judy Garland musical or a wartime documentary assessing the impact of Italian neorealism or railing against the compromises in a Hollywood adaptation of Hemingway Agee always wrote of movies as a pervasive profoundly significant part of modern life a new art whose classics Chaplin Dovzhenko Vigo he revered and whose betrayal in the interests of commerce or propaganda he often deplored If his frequent disappointments could be registered in acid tones his enthusiasms were expressed with passionate eloquence This Library of America volume supplements the classic pieces from i Agee on Film i with previously uncollected writings on Ingrid Bergman the Marx Brothers Alfred Hitchcock s i Lifeboat i Vittorio De Sica s i Shoeshine i and a wealth of other cinematic subjects br br Agee s own work as a screenwriter is represented by his script for Charles Laughton s unique and haunting masterpiece of Southern gothic i The Night of the Hunter i adapted from the novel by Davis Grubb This collection also includes examples of Agee s masterfully probing reporting for i Fortune i on subjects as diverse as the Tennessee Valley Authority commercial orchids and cockfighting and a sampling of his literary reviews among them appreciations of William Faulkner Virginia Woolf S J Perelman and William Carlos Williams
