Cynthia Ozick's fiction tradition & invention by Elaine M Kauvar( file )
7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,197 libraries worldwide
Cynthia Ozick's emphasis on tradition has made her, paradoxically, one of the most innovative writers of our time. Elaine M. Kauvar illuminates the intricacies of Ozick's texts, explores the dynamics of her creativity, and excavates her sources, contexts, and allusions. She provides readings of all of Ozick's fiction, from her first published novel, Trust, through The Messiah of Stockholm. Working chronologically, Kauvar traces the development of the storyteller's thought and art, examines the themes that pervade Ozick's tales - the battle between Hebraism and Hellenism, the lure of paganism and the dangers of idolatry, the implications and consequences of assimilation, the perplexities of the artist and the besetting dangers of art - and demonstrates the dialectic existing between her tales, their shifting perspectives, and competing ideas. Precisely because Ozick draws on the resources in her heritage, Kauvar concludes, she transcends narrow categories and defies rigid ideologies

5 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 598 libraries worldwide
Philip Roth : American pastoral, The human stain, The plot against America by Debra B Shostak( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
This work is a collection of essays on Philip Roth offering critical readings and assessments of texts. Philip Roth has been one of the most important writers of fiction in the United States during the latter part of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. This work collects new essays by noted Roth scholars on three essential novels appearing in recent years, American Pastoral (1997), The Human Stain (2000), and The Plot Against America (2004). The volume illuminates Roth's multilayered perceptions of twentieth-century America as a place, a culture, and an idea that shapes its inhabitants in profound ways. Focusing on such topics as ethnicity, race, the family, trauma, American history, historiography, fact vs. fiction, narrative form, and Roth's literary antecedents, the essays offer fresh readings of Roth's penetrating explorations of the American self and the American scene. The contributors probe this American Jewish writer's insights into the paradoxes of freedom, the politics of identity, especially as defined by racial or ethnic affiliation, and the possibilities available for self-definition and transformation within modern American history and culture
