The contemporary American short-story cycle : the ethnic resonance of genre by James Nagel ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The short-story cycle - a literary genre as ancient as A Thousand and One Nights and as modern as James Joyce's Dubliners - has rapidly ascended over the last twenty years to become one of the dominant forms in American fiction. Most scholars and book reviewers, however, lack awareness of the short-story cycle's rich legacy and consistently misconstrue new works of the genre as "novels." James Nagel offers the first systematic history and definition of the story cycle as exemplified in contemporary American fiction, bringing attention to the format's wide appeal among various ethnic groups. As Nagel admirably demonstrates, an understanding of form is crucial to apprehending a work itself."--BOOK JACKET

The portable American realism reader by James Nagel ( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the pivotal period of America's international emergence, between the Civil War and WWI, the aligned literary movements of Realism and Naturalism not only shaped the national literature of the age, but also left an indelible and far-reaching influence on twentieth-century American and world literature. Seeking to strip narrative from pious sentimentalities, and, according to William Dean Howells, to "paint life as it is, and human feelings in their true proportion and relation." Realism is best represented by this volume's masterly pieces by Twain, Henry James, Stephen Crane, Kate Chopin, and Willa Cather among others. The joining of Realist methods with the theories of Marx, Darwin, and Spencer to reveal the larger forces (biological, evolutionary, historical) which move humankind, are exemplified here in the fiction of such writers as Jack London, Frank Norris, and Theodore Dreiser
