Abstract:

Planet Simpson is the first book to bring in-depth analysis to that most important pop-cultural institution of the last decade--Fox TV's The Simpsons---and use the show as a microcosm of the Western culture it has hilariously (and mercilessly) influenced and reflected. Planet Simpson is broken down into scathingly funny chapters analyzing each major character's relationship to different facets of the American character: from Homer, the ultimate everyman of the American century to C. Montgomery Burns, who is unchecked capitalism personified. Going well beyond a critical discussion of a single television program, this book will use The Simpsons as a window on the culture at large to deliver first-hand reportage of the defining events and trends of our accelerated, confounding era.
