Fiedler on the roof : essays on literature and Jewish identity by Leslie A Fiedler( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of lectures and articles was occasioned by the author's 70th birthday and his many decades of teaching in the English departments at the University of Montana and at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he is the self-proclaimed "apostle to the gentiles." The book explores the often conflicting paradox of being a Jew in America, reexamining literary classics within a Jewish context. Noting that for many years the English departments of American universities were closed to Jewish Americans as teachers, the book points out that eventually many Jewish American professors taught a new generation of students to read in new ways classic American writers like Hawthorne, Melville, and Whitman, as well as canonical modernists like Hemingway and Faulkner. The 12 essays in the collection are entitled: "The Roots of Anti-Semitism: a View from Italy"; "Bloom or Joyce, Or Jokey for Jacob"; "Joyce and Jewish Consciousness"; "The Christian-ness of the Jewish-American Writer"; "Isaac Bashevis Singer, Or The American-ness of the American-Jewish Writer"; "Why Is the Grail Knight Jewish? A Passover Meditation"; "Styron's Choice"; "Going for the Long Ball"; "Growing Up Post-Jewish"; "The Many Names of S. Levin: An Essay in Genre Criticism"; "a Meditation on the Book of Job"; and "In Every Generation: a Meditation on the Two Holocausts." (Nka)

Tyranny of the normal : essays on bioethics, theology & myth by Leslie A Fiedler( Book )

6 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bound Together By the common thread of bioethics, these essays encompass such issues as abortion, the removal of life support, the role that doctors play in our society, and how we confront old age and Eros. Controversial, at times infuriating, Fiedler's comments are sure to anger parties on all sides; but they will also appeal to anyone who appreciates the unorthodox insights of an inquisitive and voracious mind
Stone Reader( Visual )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1972, Mark Moskowitz, then 18, read John Seelye's review of The Stones of Summer in The New York Times Book Review and immediately bought a copy. He bogged down less than a hundred pages in and gave up, finally giving the yellowed paperback another pass in 1998. On that reading, the book struck a chord, and he saw why it was so rapturously received. Looking for more, Moskowitz did a search for Mossman works produced between 1972 and 1998--and found nothing. So he set out to find Mossman, pursuing countless dead ends, talking to critics, agents, book designers, and editors, none of whom had answers. A commercial producer by trade, Moskowitz grabbed a 16-mm camera to capture his hunt for posterity, and at its best, this documentary hints at the powerful author/audience bond that can transcend race, class, region, and time itself

For more than 50 years, Leslie Fiedler played a pivotal role in the development of American literary culture. Despite his often unacknowledged influence, the academy, intellectuals, and the general audience in America and abroad still read his work and draw on its concepts. The essays in The Devil Gets His Due reacquaint readers with the depth and breadth of Fiedler's achievements. Tackling subjects ranging wildly from Dante, Ezra Pound, and Mary McCarthy to Rambo, Iwo Jima, and Jerry Lewis, these writings showcase Fiedler's pioneering of an egalitarian canon that encompassed both "high" and p
