He includes the most often cited discussions ranging from William Dean Howells, Henry James, and Frank Norris in the late nineteenth century to those by V. L. Parrington. Malcolm Cowley, and Lionel Trilling in the early twentieth century. To provide the full context for the effort to interpret the nature and significance of realism and naturalism during the periods when the movements were live issues on the critical scene, however, he also includes many uncollected essays. His selections since World War II reflect the major recent tendencies in academic criticism of the movements+-+0125770305324226819ocn012668527book19800.24Norris, FrankNovels and essaysFictionIn his brief career -- he died at 32 -- Frank Norris introduced fresh and sometimes shocking elements into American fiction. Inspired by the naturalistic "new novel" developed in France by Zola and Flaubert, he adapted it to American settings, adding his own taste for exciting action and a fascination with the emerging sciences of economics and psychology. Vandover and the brute, set in a vividly described San Francisco, captures with harsh realism the dissipation and decline of a fashionable playboy into virtual bestiality. McTeague (source for Erich von Stroheim's classic film Greed) was a radical departure for its time in its frank treatment of sex, domestic violence and pathological obsession, revealing the dark underside of San Francisco's new middle class. The octopus depicts the epic struggle of strong, ruthless California ranchers with the railroad monopoly and its political machine. Twenty-two essays address theories of literature, the state of American fiction, and the social responsibilities of the artist.

Hamlin Garland, Frank Norris, and Theodore Dreiser all pushed for social improvements for the poor and oppressed, while Edith Wharton and Willa Cather both advanced the public status of women. But they also expressed strong prejudices against the Jewish race and faith throughout their writings, producing a contradiction in American literacy history that has stymied scholars and, until now, gone largely unexamined. In this study, Donald Pizer confronts this disconcerting strain of anti-Semitism pervading American letters and culture, illustrating how easily prejudice can coexist with even the most progressive ideals."--BOOK JACKET+-+9898857075102141ocn031075756book19950.53Pizer, DonaldThe Cambridge companion to American realism and naturalismCriticism, interpretation, etcHandbooks, manuals, etcThe Companion examines a number of issues related to the terms realism and naturalism, which have long served to designate major late nineteenth-century American fiction+-+912389670597414ocn001301836book19660.47Pizer, DonaldThe novels of Frank NorrisCriticism, interpretation, etc"In this volume Donal Pizer undertakes to interpret fully, for the first time, the nature and quality of each of Frank Norris' novels."-inside jacket93917ocn023253953book19910.50Pizer, DonaldNew essays on Sister CarrieA collection of essays on "Sister Carrie", each of which examines an area of interest in the novel.

He first provides an introduction to Dos Passos' critical view of American life and his experimental fictional techniques by selecting three works from the great body of Dos Passos' writing before U.S.A. The remainder of the book is devoted to U.S.A. - from Dos Passos' planning and composition of the trilogy and his concept of it as a whole to the function of its four modes and the nature of the modal interrelatedness that constitutes the completed work of fiction. This study as a whole demonstrates the complexity and richness of U.S.A. as a modernistic epic American novel. --from inside cover6376ocn033009950book19960.56Pizer, DonaldAmerican expatriate writing and the Paris moment : modernism and placeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcMontparnasse and its cafe life, the shabby working-class area of the place de la Contrescarpe and the Pantheon, the small restaurants and cafes along the Seine, and the Right Bank world of the well-to-do...for American writers self-exiled to Paris during the 1920s and 1930s, the French capital represented what their homeland could not a milieu that through the freedom of thought and action it permitted and the richness of life it offered, nurtured the full expression of the creative imagination.
