New Essays on the American by Martha Banta

Book Description

The American (1877) was written the very year Henry James committed himself to making his way as an author outside America. It thus formed part of the brief that James had to draw up both for and against his countrymen. This 1987 collection of essays casts light on this and other major aspects of the novel: the French literary influences on James as he gravitated between the genres of the romantic and the realistic novel; the many-layered French political scene that he incorporated into the novel; the complex gender roles of his characters; and the pervasive effect of capitalism upon them.

Words at Work in Vanity Fair by Martha Banta Words at Work in Vanity Fair, Hardback (November 2011)

Banta draws upon essays in Vanity Fair by noted journalists, literary figures, and cultural critics in order to examine the manner by which major cultural and historical events in the United States and Britain led to the invention of previously non-existent words to express the rampant changes within society.

Theory of the Leisure Class by Martha Banta Theory of the Leisure Class, Paperback (May 2009)

Veblen's landmark study of affluent American society exposes the 'pecuniary culture' and 'conspicuous consumption' that results when unessential goods are exploited at the expense of production of true value. This new edition examines Veblen's still pertinent arguments.
