"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. Accessible enough to interest both experienced specialists and students new to Twain criticism, the essays examine Twain from a wide variety of critical perspectives and include timely reflections by major critics on the hotly debated dynamics of race and slavery perceptible throughout his writing." "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 Susan Kay Gillman( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>This collection seeks to place Pudd & rsquo;nhead Wilson & mdash;a neglected, textually fragmented work of Mark Twain & rsquo;s & mdash;in the context of contemporary critical approaches to literary studies. The editors & rsquo; introduction argues the virtues of using Pudd & rsquo;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, and dead ends in the text itself. Such wrinkles and gaps, the authors find, are the symptoms of an inconclusive, even evasive, but culturally illuminating struggle to confront and resolve difficult questions bearing on race and sex. Such fresh, intellectually enriching perspectives on the novel arise directly from the broad-based interdisciplinary foundations provided by the participating scholars. Drawing on a wide variety of critical methodologies, the essays place the novel in ways that illuminate the world in which it was produced and that further promise to stimulate further study.

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 371 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 )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 237 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

Cette étude vise à comprendre de quelle manière Cormac McCarthy caractérise le cow-boy novice dans le contexte contemporain de l'Ouest américain, théâtre de la première tragédie américaine: la fermeture de la frontier. John Grady et Billy, les deux protagonistes de cette Border Trilogy, s'embarquent dans des quêtes initiatiques afin de mieux comprendre leur statut d'héros américain moderne, tiraillé entre l'héritage du mythe et de la frontier, et la modernité d'un monde qui leur échappe. Par leurs méditations, leurs cheminements, les rituels qu'ils tentent de pratiquer à mi-chemin entre mythe et réalité, les jeunes novices définissent une éthique de l'apprentissage qui justifie la violence McCarthienne, un sujet intarissable d'étude critique sur l'auteur. En s'intéressant au problème de l'initiation, cette thèse espère apporter un éclairage nouveau sur ce débat, et propose comme pistes de réflexions les problèmes d'apprentissage et de rites inachevés, la solitude du héros et sa finitude ainsi que la "finitude" narrative d'un livre qui s'achève et la finitude "artistique" du narrateur qui s'interroge sur sa responsabilité sur l'(H)istoire
