Description - The New Romanticism by Eberhard Alsen
American novelists of the Twentieth century have rejected an objective perspective on the world in favour of one that resembles the transcendental and epistemological investigations by earlier novelists and poets. The New Romanticism is an overview of this romantic trend in contemporary fiction. This volume includes three classic essays on romanticism by Saul Bellow, Thomas Pynchon and Toni Morrison as well as essays on the works of John Cheever, Flannery O'Connor, Vladimir Nobokov, Toni Morrison, John Hawkes, John Updike, Norman Mailer, Bernard Malamud, Walker Percy, John Barth, Ralph Ellison and J.D. Salinger.
