Traditions, voices, and dreams : the American novel since the 1960s by Melvin J Friedman( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Gillespie, James West, Ben Siegel, Mark Krupnick, and Clayton Koelb, for example, discuss some of the ways American novelists have integrated into their fiction elements from the Southern, Jewish, and European cultural and literary traditions. Then James Mellard, Jerome Klinkowitz, Susan Brienza, Linda Wagner-Martin, and Suzette Henke analyze the differing "voices and languages" shaping the social and human "realities" depicted in the writings of some major American literary figures. Finally, James Nagel, Gloria Cronin, Elaine Safer, and Thomas Schaub confront the thematic "hopes, dreams, and desperation" central to a good deal of this country's fiction today. As the century draws to a close then, the allegedly vanishing American novel does not appear to lack creative or daringly experimental literary practitioners - as this volume abundantly shows
