New Essays on Rabbit Run

  • Still John Updikes most popular and critically acclaimed novel, Rabbit Run introduced the character of Harry Rabbit Angstrom, one of those middle-class Americans who, in Updikes words, arent especially beautiful or bright or urban but about whom there is a lot worth saying. The fallible hero struggles with his own sexuality, his religious feelings, the difficulties of being a son and father, and with the changes in American society that seem to suffocate him. Updikes writing is charged with narrative energy and pictorial accuracy that illuminate the present moment; it evokes the tension between the drab compromises we are forced to make with age and the religious mystery that sustains us. Written by a distinguished group of international scholars, these essays examine both the technical mastery and thematic range that make Updikes work one of the most significant achievements in modern American fiction and one that continues to provoke fresh critical insight.
