Books Speaking to Books: A Contextual Approach to American Fiction

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

Stafford introduces the rich interpretive possibilities in a contextual analysis of literature. He finds in <3> Moby Dick<1> , <3> The Wings of the Dove<1> , and <3> Absalom, Absalom!<1> three symbolic Americas linked through images of whiteness that are collectively prophetic. Three novels of the 1920s (by Faulkner, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald) are linked by themes of innocence; three of the 1970s (by Bellows, Malamud, and Updike), by black-white pairs. His flexible method also examines film.
