New essays on Rabbit, run by ANON( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fallible hero struggles with his own sexuality, his religious feelings, the difficulties of being a son and a father, and with the changes in American society that confuse and excite, and finally seem to suffocate him. Updike's writing is charged with narrative energy and pictorial accuracy that illuminate the present moment as they evoke the tension between the drab compromises we are forced to make with age and the religious mystery that sustains us against them. Written by a distinguished group of international scholars, the essays in this collection examine both the technical mastery and the thematic range that make this work one of the most significant achievements in modern American fiction and one which continues to provoke fresh critical insight

Understanding Donald Barthelme by Stanley Trachtenberg( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Barthelme was known chiefly for his short fiction, much of which appeared initially in "The New Yorker" magazine. He was also the author of several novels (including "Snow White", "The Dead Father", "Paradise", and the posthumous "The King"), children's books, miscellaneous non-fiction, and film and book reviews. This book examines in detail both the fiction and non-fiction of one of the most acclaimed writers of innovative American fiction. It places Barthelme's work within the context of other post-modern disciplines, identifies his major themes, and analyzes his experiments with language. In "Understanding Donald Barthelme", Trachtenberg introduces readers to Barthelme's ultimately affirmative humour and the wry acknowledgment of the conditions out of which it emerges
