Nobody's home : speech, self, and place in American fiction from Hawthorne to DeLillo by Arnold L Weinstein( Book )

15 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on some of the deepest instincts of American life and culture--individual liberty, freedom of speech, constructing a life--Arnold Weinstein brilliantly sketches the remarkable career of the American self over the past one hundered fifty years in major works by such authors as Herman Melville and Mark Twain to contemporary authors such as Toni Morrison and Robert Coover. He contends that American writers are haunted by the twin specters of the self as a mirage, as Nobody, and by the brutal forces of culture and ideology that deny selfhood to people on the basis of money, sex, and color of skin. Revealing American fiction as a fascinating record of the human flight against coercion, this study fashions a rich and supple view of the American novel as a writerly form of freedom, in sharp contrast to today's critical emphasis on blindness and co-option
A scream goes through the house : what literature teaches us about life by Arnold L Weinstein( Book )

"A Scream Goes Through the House traces the human cry that echoes in literature through the ages, demonstrating how intense feelings are heard and shared.

Recovering your story : Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, Morrison by Arnold L Weinstein( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Great art discovers for us who we are," writes literature professor and critic Weinstein in this book about how we can better uncover and understand our own stories by reading five major modern writers who "reinvent the novel by exploding our sense of what we are." He invites us to discover our perceptions, our dreams, our own elusive, deepest stories in these masterpieces of modernist fiction. As he argues with wit and passion, these works are in fact shimmering mirrors of our own inner world and most intimate thoughts. He decodes great novels, illuminates the complex pleasures woven into these peerless narratives, and shows how to read them to understand human beings-the way our minds and hearts actually work. This is what Weinstein means by "recovering your story." He makes these powerful works understandable, accessible, indeed imperative for all adventurous readers.--From publisher description
