Sommaire

Biographie

Rédacteur en chef adjoint de The New Republic, directeur de Vanity Fair, critique littéraire au New Yorker, il a influencé par ses écrits des auteurs tels que Sinclair Lewis, John Dos Passos ou Upton Sinclair. Époux de la romancière Mary McCarthy, auteur d'une correspondance avec Anaïs Nin et Vladimir Nabokov, il a fait découvrir au public les œuvres de William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway ou Francis Scott Fitzgerald, entre autres. Edmund Wilson passe pour l'un des plus grands critiques littéraires américains du XXe siècle – et peut-être le plus grand.
