Editorial Review
Escaped from bondage, questing every sort of knowledge and experience, [woman] has for the moment ethically and culturally outstripped her companion, man... -from "The New Image" Though known primarily as an architect and, later, as a stage designer, Claude Bragdon dabbled in mysticism and the philosophical discipline of theosophy, and here, in this 1925 volume, he turns his charming outlook on Jazz Age society on the fairer sex. These twelve essays, about "the predicament of woman in the modern world, and the changed relation between the sexes by reason of her so-called emancipation," explore: . the "psychic sensitivity" of women . the "eternal feminine" symbolism in Christianity . new attitudes about the "cosmic hunger" for sex . the flowering of women's "unsuspected strengths and latent finesesses" . and more. Other works by Bragdon available from Cosimo Classics: The Beautiful Necessity, More Lives Than One, The Beautiful Necessity, Architecture and Democracy, and A Primer of Higher Space (The Fourth Dimension). American architect, stage designer, and writer CLAUDE FAYETTE BRAGDON (1866-1946) helped found the Rochester Architectural Club, in the city where he made his greatest mark as a building designer with structures including Rochester Central Station, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the First Universalist Church; he also designed Peterborough Bridge in Ontario. In later life, Bragdon worked on Broadway as scenic designer for 1930s productions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Hamlet, among others.
