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.

In his detailed study of works by Charles Brockden Brown, James Fenimore Cooper, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry James, Frank Norris, George Washington Cable, William Dean Howells, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner, Chase identifies and traces this tradition through two centuries of American literature. The best novelists, he argues, have found uses for romance beyond the escapism, fantasy, and sentimentality often associated with it. Through romance, these writers mirror the extremes of American culture -- the Puritan melodrama of good and evil, or the pastoral idyll inspired by the American wilderness. The American "romance-novel," as Chase calls it, also exhibits fundamental differences from English fiction. His readings show how works by American writers depart from the ordinary novelistic requirements of verisimilitude, development, and continuity; their works are freer, more daring than those produced by their English counterparts. In particular, they seek out the underside of consciousness: "The intense desire to drive everything through to the last turn of the screw or twist of the knife," Chase states, "often results in romantic nihilism, a poetry of force and darkness." Such distinctions -- between the "novel" as it is commonly understood and the "romance" as Chase defines it, between the nature of English and American consciousness -- are important keys to understanding American fiction and to gaining a clear picture of both its characteristic greatness and its characteristic shortcomings148711ocn000170198book19680.35Frohock, W.

He moved to San Francisco at fifteen, spent two years in Paris painting, and returned to San Francisco to become an internationally famous author. He died at age thirty-two from a ruptured appendix. During his short life, he wrote an inspired series of novels about the United States coming of age. The Octopus was a prescient warning about the threat of monopolies, and The Pit exposed the intrigues and dirty dealings at the Chicago grain exchange. Extensively reprinted, Norris's works have also found their way into popular consciousness through film (Erich von Stroheim's Greed), and even an opera, McTeague, based on his portrait of the huge, dumb, and murderous dentist."+-+31658570758561ocn000269437book19610.39Hazard, Lucy LockwoodThe frontier in American literatureCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+9714690226324+-+9714690226324Thu Oct 16 16:03:28 EDT 2014batch63481
