In a time when we’ve lost the sense of time, it seems only right to celebrate the most important books of the 20th century.
It’s a good thing we’re celebrating.
From the first volume of the first edition of the New York Times Book Review in 1874 to the New Yorker’s most-read book of the year, the book of books is a vital part of our culture and our lives.
These are the books that defined and shaped the 20s, 20g, and 20b, as well as the books we all read today.
The New Yorker is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its 10th Anniversary Edition in 2019 with the launch of The New Yorker Magazine’s Most Important Book of the Century.
“We are living in an era in which the books of our lives matter,” says editorial director and author of The Book of Books James Baldwin.
For Baldwin, the 10 years that have passed since the publication of The Golden Age of American Literature have been one of the most productive of his lifetime.
Baldwin has written four books of essays that explore the rise of modern literature.
In The Golden Century of American Poetry, Baldwin explores the rise and rise of poetry, from its birth in the early nineteenth century through the 1950s.
And The Golden Era of American Culture was the book that shaped the culture of the modern era, from the Civil War era to the Cold War era.
At the end of each essay, Baldwin explains why the essay is important, what it means to be a contemporary, and why this essay matters.
