Pearl S. Buck: populism mosaic
Posted in the Literature Forum
#1 Dec 19, 2012
The incredible writer Pearl S. Buck won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize in literature for her seminal spiritualized work "The Good Earth" (1931), a human story about labor, resilience, and ethical compromise.
Given that the Pulitzer Prize represents social distinction while the Nobel Prize represents academic distinction, it is amazing that one person could win both awards. Only seven people total have done so in all of history.
The recent populist appeal of literary-oriented Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Jane Austen Book Club" (2007) suggests that recognizing joint achievements in both society and academics has become a matter of memory food.
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
