Gore Vidal
Born 3rd. October, 1925, in West Point, New York.
US novelist, essayist, and polemicist. Full name: Eugene Luther Gore Vidal Jr. He was born in the Cadet Hospital at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, where his father, Gene Vidal, was an aeronautics instructor. His father was a fearless aviator and a sporting hero. His mother Nina, had a number of affairs and was fond of drink. Gore Vidal spent much of his childhood in Washington with his blind grandfather Senator Thomas Pryor Gore of Oklahoma. Gene and Nina Vidal divorced in 1935. Nina Vidal married Hugh Auchincloss, and hence Gore Vidal acquired a stepfather in common with Jacqueline Kennedy. Gore Vidal was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy but was a mediocre student. He fell in love with a fellow pupil, Jimmie Trimble, who was later killed in action in 1945. In 1943 Gore Vidal joined the United States Army Reserve Corps and served on army transports in the Aleutian Islands in World War II. Army life gave him material for his first novel

A hospital official said he would undergo tests Saturday and a decision would be made then on how long to keep him in hospital.

    Gore Vidal
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Eugene Luther Vidal, Jr., better known as Gore Vidal (born October 3 ) is a well-known American writer. He was born at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York , where his father was an aeronautics instructor. He later adopted, as his first name, the surname of his maternal grandfather. He was brought up in the Washington, D.C. , area, where his grandfather Thomas Gore was a Democratic Senator from Oklahoma . Thomas P. Gore was blind, and the young Vidal frequently acted as his guide, thereby gaining unusual access for a child to the corridors of power. (He became the first child to fly across the Atlantic Ocean .) After graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy , Gore joined the US Army Reserve in 1943. At the age of 21, he wrote his first novel, Williwaw , based upon his military experiences in the Alaskan Harbor Detachment. The book was well received. A few years later, his novel The City and the Pillar , which dealt candidly with gay themes, caused a furor, to the extent that the

Vidal made his debut as novelist with WILLIWAW at the age of 19, while still in US Army uniform. "One understands of course why the role of the individual in history is instinctively played down by a would-be egalitarian society. We are, quite naturally, afraid of being victimized by reckless adventurers. To avoid this we have created a myth of the ineluctable mass ('other-directedness') which governs all. Science, we are told, is not a matter of individual inquiry but of collective effort. Even the surface storminess of our elections disguises a fundamental indifference to human personality; if not this man, then that one; it's all the same, life will go on."

    In light of current controversies surrounding Mr. Vidal (he is outspoken, isn't he?), I have temporarily altered this page to include only some passages that I find particularly insightful and appropriate to the controversy at hand. Coincidentally, it's interesting to note that William James also was a strong critic of imperialism. "A good deed never goes unpunished." "There is no such thing as a true account of anything." "One's neighbor is always the enemy. That is the nature of things." "If the splitter of hairs has a sharp enough knife, the fact of life itself can be chopped into nothing." "It is the spirit of the age to believe that any fact, no matter how suspect, is superior to any imaginative exercise, no matter how true." "I have found that there is no attitude so bizarre that one will not encounter it sooner or later if one travels far enough." "Least said, soonest mended." "I suppose that one is always tempted to challenge those who think that they and they alone possess the truth or the way or the key to the mystery." "I have always found men quite fathomable. They look entirely to their own interest."

    It's Time to Take Action Against Our Wars on the Rest of the World
    by GORE VIDAL This is a transcript of Gore Vidals's March 12 interview on Dateline, SBS TV Australia. MARK DAVIS: Gore Vidal, welcome to Dateline. GORE VIDAL: Happy to have crossed the dateline down under. MARK DAVIS: In the past few years, you have shifted from being a novelist to principally an essayist or, in your own words 'a pamphleteer'. It's almost the reverse of most writers' careers. Why the shift for you? occasionally alleges, this is lunacy. And I have a hunch I've been getting quite a bit around the country most people are beginning to sense it. The poll numbers are not as good as the Bush regime would have us believe. A great...something like 70% really only wants to go into war with United Nations sanction and a new resolution. I would prefer, however, that we use our constitution, which we often ignore, which is Article 1 Section 8 says, "Only the Congress may declare war. The President has no right to go to war and he is Commander-in-Chief once it starts." MARK DAVIS: Over the past 40 years or so, you've written about the undermining of the foundations of the constitution liberty, human rights, free speech. Indeed, you've probably damned every administration throughout that period on that score. Is George Bush really any worse?

By Chris Haines Gore Vidal puts us at ease with history, probably because he has spent so much time at its elbow. Born at West Point and raised in Washington, D.C., the grandson of the legendary blind Sen. Thomas Gore and kin to Jimmy Carter, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and the current vice president, Vidal has woven his sitting room perspective of American politics into novels like "Burr," "Lincoln," "1876" and "Empire." It is his familial view of great people and events that makes them feel real. Vidal's contributions to popular culture both as an early writer for television and as a Hollywood screenwriter expose human folly and frailty, in a more contemporary and occasionally picaresque mode. Compare, for instance, "Visit to a Small Planet" or "The Best Man" to "Suddenly, Last Summer" or "Myra Breckinridge." His forthcoming novel, "The Smithsonian Institution," returns to his favorite political and sexual themes. Even better are the essays. Reading through the dozens of reviews, stories and editorials that compose "United States" (accounting for approximately two-thirds of his published articles), it becomes clear that Vidal's reputation as a polemicist is something of a bum rap. He is, at heart, a brilliant pragmatist, with a great sense of humor and irony. But Americans have never cared much for irony. Perhaps it's his extended exposure to the famous that allows Vidal not only to point out that the emperor's new clothes are not there, but that the emperor is actually an emperor and not just the prez (as he recently argued in Vanity Fair). It was Vidal's commentary on American empire and the Internet that inspired the following interview, conducted via fax, with Vidal at his villa in Italy.

    Welcome to the introduction to The Gore Vidal Index. Follow the links in the index on the left of your screen to read some writing about and by Vidal. If you came right to this introductory essay and don't have an index in a frame on the left, then click here Gore Vidal published his first novel, Williwaw , in 1946 at the age of 21. A precocious talent, he began writing poems and stories as a young teen-ager and took his first stab at novels before he was out of high school. He finally finished one when, as a 19-year-old aboard a World War II ship in the Aleutians, he began a story of men at sea and continued it while recovering in a hospital, the victim of rheumatoid arthritis. Critics received the book well, and Vidal - whose grandfather was a senator and whose father, a pioneer aviator, worked for the Roosevelt administration - set out on his own career as a novelist rather than the family career of politics and privilege. His second novel, In a Yellow Wood (1947), didn't please critics quite as much. But when, in 1948, he published The City and the Pillar , he changed the course of his career. The story of a young homosexual, the book received scathingly moralistic notices from most of the mainstream press, and The New York Times refused to review his next five novels in the daily newspaper. Sales slipped along with his prestige, and so in the early 1950s, under three different pseudonyms, he wrote five pulp fictions while continuing to publish his literary novels. Among these books are

    Calvino's Novels
    by Gore Vidal B etween the end of the Second World War in and the beginning of the Korean War in there was a burst of creative activity throughout the American empire as well as in client states of Western Europe. From Auden's Age of Anxiety to Carson McCullers' Reflections in a Golden Eye to Paul Bowle s The Sheltering Sky to Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named sire to Tudor's ballets and to Bernstein's enthusiasms, it was n exciting time. The cold war was no more than a nip in the air while the junior senator from Wisconsin was just another genial pol with a drinking problem and an eye for the boys. In that happy time the young American writer was able to reel in triumph through the old cities of Europethe exchange rate entirely in his favor. Twenty-six years ago this spring I arrived in Rome.

    The Enemy Within by Gore Vidal London, 27 October 2002 The Observer Gore Vidal is America's most controversial writer and a ferocious, often isolated, critic of the Bush administration. Here, against a backdrop of spreading unease about America's response to the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath, we publish Vidal's remarkable personal polemic urging a shocking new interpretation of who was to blame. Contents Introduction
    On 24 August 1814, things looked very dark for freedom's land. That was the day the British captured Washington DC and set fire to the Capitol and the White House. President Madison took refuge in the nearby Virginia woods where he waited patiently for the notoriously short attention span of the Brits to kick in, which it did. They moved on and what might have been a Day of Utter Darkness turned out to be something of a bonanza for the DC building trades and up-market realtors. One year after 9/11, we still don't know by whom we were struck that infamous Tuesday, or for what true purpose. But it is fairly plain to many civil-libertarians that 9/11 applied not only to much of our fragile Bill of Rights but also to our once-envied system of government which had taken a mortal blow the previous year when the Supreme Court did a little dance in 5/4 time and replaced a popularly elected president with the oil and gas Cheney/Bush junta.
