Lot 2061

Title: The Modern Obstacle
Author: Alice Duer Miller - Alice Duer Miller was an American writer and poet. She became known as a campaigner for women's suffrage and published a brilliant series of satirical poems in the New York Tribune. These were published subsequently as "Are Women People?". These words became a catchphrase of the suffrage movement. She followed this collection with "Women are People!" (1917).

As a novelist, she scored her first real success with "Come Out of the Kitchen" in 1916. The story was made into a play and later the 1948 film "Spring in Park Lane." She followed it with a series of other short novels, many of which were staged and (increasingly) made into films. At about the same time, her husband began to make money on the Exchange and their money problems were over.

In the 1920s and 1930s, many of her stories were used for motion pictures, such as "Are Parents People?" (1925), "Roberta" (1935), and "Irene" (1940), taking her to Hollywood. She also became involved in a number of motion picture screenplays, including "Wife vs. Secretary" (1936). Her name appears in the very first issue of The New Yorker as an "advisory editor".

In 1940, she wrote the verse novel "The White Cliffs." The story is of an American girl who coming to London as a tourist, meets and marries a young upper-class Englishman in the period just before the First World War. The poem was spectacularly successful on both sides of the Atlantic, selling eventually approaching a million copies - an unheard of number for a book of verse. It was broadcast and the story was made into the 1944 film "The White Cliffs of Dover," starring Irene Dunne. Like her earlier suffrage poems, it had a significant effect on American public opinion and it was one of the influences leading the United States to enter the War.
