James Joyce revisited by Richard F Peterson ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A towering presence in modern literature, James Joyce continues to exert an enormous influence over the writers who have come after him. Generally accepted as the most experimental and daring writer of the twentieth century, Joyce's innovations in the form and content of the novel have not been superseded. If Ulysses is the most influential novel of the twentieth century, Finnegans Wake continues to be the most challenging work in prose fiction in the English language. In James Joyce Revisited, Richard F. Peterson goes back to the classroom in search of those aspects of Joyce's work that make him most accessible and interesting to students. After the early chapters follow his career from the lyrical impulses of Chamber Music and the scrupulously crafted stories of Dubliners, the later chapters track Joyce through his greatest achievements: Ulysses, his mock-epic of modern life, and Finnegans Wake, his inquiry into the night world and dream language of human existence. There is a full discussion of all the major as well as the minor works and a final chapter that conducts its own inquiry into the gigantic presence of Joyce in modern literature and criticism. This book brings up to date biographical and critical materials, and the secondary bibliography has been expanded, as has the discussion of Stephen Hero. Peterson approaches even the most challenging and complex of Joyce's works with the view that they are readable and that his fiction invites rather than discourages the reader. This volume offers a reliable and reasonably comprehensive starting place for the reader who is coming to Joyce studies early in his or her career, as well as being a helpful source of bibliographical material for the more experienced scholar

Growing up with Clemente by Richard F Peterson ( Book )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A post--World War II memoir of a childhood in working-class PittsburghGrowing Up With Clemente is a personal history of the hardscrabble life of Pittsburgh's South Side during the city's post--World War II renaissance. It is also the intimate story of an American boy who played baseball on the city's dilapidated playgrounds and rooted for his beloved sports teams while growing up and struggling in Pittsburgh's blue-collar neighborhoods. Though among the worst professional teams in the 1950s, the Pirates and Steelers still inspired the working-class dream of a life beyond the steel mills. And in the midst of it all was the towering, isolated figure of Roberto Clemente. Clemente would eventually become a symbol of pride, loyalty, courage, and sacrifice for a city that had initially rejected him and for a young boy who spent his youth looking for a hero but had to grow up before understanding Clemente's greatness.With sensitivity and eloquence, Richard Peterson captures a time and place easily overlooked or forgotten but important to understanding the significance of sports in shaping America's working-class character. Whether discussing race, sex, class, or any of the other larger issues of the world in which he grew up, Peterson conveys an honesty rarely found in memoirs. Growing Up With Clemente is an engaging read, sure to be a hit in both the literature and sports communities
