Dorothy Parker by Arthur F Kinney( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical and appreciative reassessment of the work of Parker. The author briefly examines her life and the influences on her writings, and then discusses her works in more detail. He argues that her poetry, fiction, and criticism reveal language of a dialogic nature, and that what many have seen as monotonal and trivial in her work is in fact a compound of confused and complicated voicings. What is most evident in Parker's work, he contends, is the admission of irresolution, and not evidence of ignorance. Annotation (by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.)

Go down, Moses : the miscegenation of time by Arthur F Kinney( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Go Down, Moses is one of William Faulkner's most direct and powerful assessments of race relations in America. In this compelling study, Arthur F. Kinney asserts that it is also his most personal - and perhaps most important - novel. Composed of seven complete stories spanning several generations in Faulkner's fictitious Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, the book's structure is deceptively simple. Indeed, Faulkner's publisher incorrectly printed the first edition with the title Go Down, Moses and Other Stories, until Faulkner insisted that the work be treated as a novel. Together, the stories' multiple viewpoints create a complex mosaic of the McCaslin family, whose white and mulatto branches are the product of several defining instances of miscegenation. The illicit mixing of races creates a repeating pattern of ambiguous and morally compromised relationships in which master and slave can be blood relatives, leaving later generations to struggle against a legacy of exploitation that sears the psyches - and the landscape - of the American South. The book's longest episode, "The Bear," which in altered form has become one of Faulkner's best-known short works, poignantly demonstrates how the dehumanizing effects of ownership also alienate people from nature and ultimately from themselves. A radical departure in form and content from the nostalgic plantation novels once common in southern fiction, Go Down, Moses provides an honest and penetrating appraisal of the slave economy and racial domination from the plantation era to the dawn of the civil rights movement. Kinney presents numerous historical documents and offers concrete details from Faulkner's life that show how Faulkner accurately re-created his region's history in his fiction. Kinney also reviews evidence suggesting that Faulkner's own ancestors may have provided the model for the McCaslin's miscegenation. A chronology uniting the novel's seven stories into a single sequence of events provides evidence for a central argument in Kinney's highly original interpretation: that the scrambling of time employed in Faulkner's presentation of events masks a key source of meaning that has been overlooked in previous analyses. By jumping backward and forward in time, Faulkner's narrative structure emphasizes thematic parallels between disparate events, enabling him to juxtapose and link the days of slavery with 20th-century America. By reordering Faulkner's "miscegenation of time," Kinney exposes additional meanings that more starkly situate Faulkner's work in the context of the vital issues of his era - issues that retain their urgency to the present day
