Cormac McCarthy [9780826438201]

  • `Fascinating and provocative, these essays illuminate what one contributor calls the "terrible beauty" of three of Cormac McCarthy's best-known and more recent "primal fictions". With Sara Spurgeon's elegant introduction, this collection is both a helpful overview and an in-depth, philosophical and cultural exploration of one of the greatest writers in English today.' William Handley, University Of Southern California, USA

    Cormac McCarthy's significance in the field of contemporary American fiction is enormous. Harold Bloom named him one of the three most important authors of the 20th century. He won the American Book Award for All the Pretty Horses (1991) and the Pulitzer Prize for The Road (2006), and his influence on contemporary American literature has been compared to that of Herman Melville, William Faulkner, and Ernest Hemingway.

    This collection of new critical perspectives on three of McCarthy's most widely studied novels provides a wide-ranging introduction to the different interpretations of his work. Introductions to each set of essays encourage readers to see connections and contrasts between different approaches and comprehensive further reading will help students to take their study further.
