About the book:

From the author of Nightwood: Djuna Barnes has written a book that is all that she was, and must still bevulgar, beautiful, defiant, witty, poetic, and a little mad.Argonaut

When it was first published in 1928, Djuna Barness Ryder, a bawdy mock- Elizabethan chronicle of a family very much like her own, was described in the Saturday Review as the most amazing book ever written by a woman. One of modern literatures first and best denunciations of patriarchal repression, Ryder employs an exuberant prose by which narrator Julie Ryder derides her hated father, polygamous Wendell Ryder. Barnes satirizes masculinity and domesticity by way of parable, poem, and play, and a prose style that echoes Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Bible, and Robert Burtons Anatomy of Melancholy. For this edition, several of Barness previously suppressed illustrations have been restored.
