The unwritten war; American writers and the Civil War by Daniel Aaron( Book )

U.S.A. by John Dos Passos( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unique among American novels for its epic scope and panoramic and social sweep, John Dos Passos' U.S.A. has long been acknowledged as a monument of modern fiction. In the novels that make up the trilogy - The 42nd Parallel (1930), 1919 (1932), and The Big Money (1936) - Dos Passos creates an unforgettable collective portrait of America, shot through with sardonic comedy and brilliant social observation. He interweaves the careers of his characters and the events of their time with a narrative verve and breathtaking technical skill that make U.S.A. among the most compulsively readable of modern classics. In his prologue Dos Passos writes: "U.S.A. is the slice of a continent. U.S.A. is a group of holding companies, some aggregations of trade unions, a set of laws bound in calf, a radio network, a chain of moving picture theatres, a column of stock quotations rubbed out and written in by a Western Union boy on a blackboard, a public library full of old newspapers and dogeared history books with protests scrawled on the margins in pencil ... But mostly U.S.A. is the speech of the people." The trilogy is filled with American speech: labor radicals and advertising executives, sailors and stenographers, interior decorators and movie stars. The volume contains newly researched chronologies of Dos Passos' life and of world events cited in U.S.A., notes, and an essay on textual selection

American notes : selected essays by Daniel Aaron( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the decades, Daniel Aaron has made an extraordinary contribution to the study of American literature and culture. As social historian, critic, and literary journalist, Aaron has covered a diverse range of subjects in a flow of articles and review essays. This first collection of Aaron's influential writings focuses on American novels, poems, biographies, and auto biographies that are viewed largely as cultural artifacts. Many of the selections explore the relation of literature and history, a theme that runs through much of Aaron's work. An engaging introduction by Aaron as well as informative section headnotes offer personal reflections, explanations, asides, and reminiscences that enrich the readers understanding of the topics, the times, and the author. In Aaron's own words, the volume "traces the saltatory course of a career largely spent thinking and talking about American things."
