The central concern of James Tuttleton's new collection of literary essays is the work of black writers and the representation of the black experience in America. Mr. Tuttleton approaches the subject with caution, but with his usual clear-eyed judgment, seeking to restore objective criticism to its proper role in the treatment of "minority" writings

Vital signs : essays on American literature and criticism by James W Tuttleton( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Tuttleton's literary writings in such magazines as the New Criterion, the American Scholar, and the Yale Review have earned him a reputation as one of our most trenchant critics. Here he collects nineteen essays derived from his long engagement with the masterworks of the American imagination. Discussions of Hawthorne and Emerson, Howells and James, Fuller and Chopin, and Fitzgerald and Anderson, among others, are counterpointed with an analysis of the effect of contemporary critical theory on the American canon. Mr. Tuttleton scrutinizers a century and a half of great American writing from the viewpoint of literature as an art rather than as a datum of "cultural studies." He is severe with those styles of criticism that in his view drain literature of its moral and social significance, or that manipulate literature to serve an ideological agenda

A fine silver thread : essays on American writing and criticism by James W Tuttleton( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of ideology are a dominant motif, supported by the author's customary banquet of information based upon his close reading of American literature and criticism. He is not reluctant to exercise taste - "a dirty word nowadays ... but it conveys aesthetic judgment." And he rejects ideology, propaganda, or protest writing masquerading as literature

F. Scott Fitzgerald's conflict with America: A study of displacement and psychic geography in his work by Nancy P Vanarsdale( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By examining F. Scott Fitzgerald's use of deracination throughout the novels, stories and essays, this study explores the broader significance of modern America--beyond its historic and mythic past--as well as the importance of "psychic geography" in his vision of the ideal, modern American mind. The author himself moved more than fifty times during his life; he never owned a home. Similarly, his characters repeatedly uproot themselves in a conscious struggle to transcend their original regional identities. In effect, the protagonists, apparently self-projections of the author, attempt to synthesize regional value systems and become idealized Americans, from Midwestern youths striving for popularity in Eastern schools to New York-trained artists struggling for success according to Hollywood standards. Following the introduction, seven chapters are devoted to analyzing the major urban and suburban settings used in the fiction: St. Paul, Princeton, Tarleton, New York, the Eggs, the expatriate colonies abroad, and Hollywood. The perceptions of these locales are colored by the sexual and social responsibilities of the respective protagonists as they mature and by the philosophical question of the future of American individuality in the modern era
