"A collaborative project assembled by scholars who have played crucial roles in the recent explosion of Twain criticism, The Cambridge Companion to Mark Twain offers new and thought-provoking essays on an author of enduring preeminence in the American canon.

"The volume includes a chronology of Twain's life and a list of suggestions for further reading, to provide the student or general reader with sources for background as well as additional information."--Jacket

Mark Twain's Pudd'nhead Wilson : race, conflict, and culture by Mark Twain( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection seeks to place Pudd'nhead Wilson-a neglected, textually fragmented work of Mark Twain's-in the context of contemporary critical approaches to literary studies. The editors' introduction argues the virtues of using Pudd'nhead Wilson as a teaching text, a case study in many of the issues presently occupying literary criticism: issues of history and the uses of history, of canon formation, of textual problematics, and finally of race, class, and gender. In a variety of ways the essays build arguments out of, not in spite of, the anomalies, inconsistencies, an
Love's story told : a life of Henry A. Murray by Forrest G Robinson( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Searching out the private man as well as the public figure, this biography follows Henry Murray through his discoveries and triumphs as a pioneer in the field of clinical psychology, as a co-founder of Harvard's Psychological Clinic, the co-inventor of the Thematic Apperception Test, and a biographer of Herman Melville. Murray's fascination with Melville's troubled genius, his wartime experiences in the O.S.S., and his close friendships with Lewis Mumford and Conrad Aiken all come to the fore in this reconstruction of a life. And always, at the heart of this story, Robinson finds Murray's highly erotic and mystical relationship with Christiana Morgan. --From publisher's description

The author-cat : Clemens's life in fiction by Forrest G Robinson( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the theme of bad faith in all of Clemens's major writing, particularly the late work, Robinson sheds light on a tormented moral life. His book challenges conventional assumptions about the humorist's personality and creativity, directing attention to what William Dean Howells describes as 'the depths of a nature whose tragical seriousness broke in the laughter which the unwise took for the whole of him.'

De l'innocence à l'expérience : la quête initiatique du cow-boy dans The Border Trilogy de Cormac McCarthy by Carole Juge( )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation undertakes the study of Cormac McCarthy's characterization of the cowboy hero,from his early state of innocence in the modern American West to his understanding of the first greatAmerican tragedy, the closing of the frontier. John Grady and Billy, the two main protagonists of thisBorder Trilogy, try to follow in the old pioneers' footsteps, attempting to achieve heroic status throughpublic display of bravery in a modern world that ignores them. Through their meditation, theirinitiatory journeys, and attempts to perform rites they define an ethics of experience making whichhelps justify the violence at the core of McCarthy's novels, a topic very popular in McCarthian studies.This dissertation hopes to shed light on the bond that ties initiation to violence and offers to discussproblems of experimentation and unfulfilled rituals, the hero's solitude and finitude, as well as thenarrative finitude of the book that always ends and the artistic finitude of the storyteller who also seeksanswers on his responsibility in the (hi)story
