New Readings of the American Novel: Narrative Theory & its Application (2nd ed.)
Peter Messent. Takes a set of important theoretical approaches, including Genette, Barthes, Bakhtin & Reader Response criticism, & applies them in close readings of 8 key American novels from the period 1880 to 1940. This series of novels moves from James’s “The Portrait of a Lady” to Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God.” Also includes Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn,” Wharton’s “The House of Mirth,” Cather’s “A Lost Lady,” Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises,” Faulkner’s “The Sound & the Fury, & Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” These perennially popular novels appear on many American Literature survey courses & the careful application of theory to texts makes this the ideal book for students when first introduced to the concept of narrative theory.
