Summary Book Review Ragtime :

Download or read book Ragtime written by Mr E L Doctorow and published by . This book was released on 1997-11-01 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Katherine Anne Porter's superb collection of three short novels is re-introduced into the Modern Library. These three short novels -- "Noon Wine", "Old Mortality", and "Pale Horse, Pale Rider" -- are among the most beautifully wrought narratives in American fiction. Elizabeth Hardwick says, "The brilliance of the conception is enhanced by imagery of a perfect assurance". Porter was a master of the short novel or long story, as she called her pieces (she eschewed the term novella). V. S. Pritchett said she knew "how to satisfy exhaustively in writing briefly". Stories like "Noon Wine" imprint indelibly on the reader. In it, a handyman named Mr. Helton comes to work on a farm in a small Texas town in the late 1800s, and becomes -- at great cost -- an integral part of the family. Miranda, of "Old Mortality" and the title story, is a brave, saucy, unforgettable character who, as Mary Gordon has written, is in "the precarious position of a woman who must earn her way with no one behind her to break her fall". "Porter moves in the illustrious company headed by Hawthorne, Flaubert, and Henry James", wrote The Saturday Review, and Pale Horse, Pale Rider gives the amplest demonstration of why this is true.

Summary Book Review The Scourges of the South? Essays on “The Sickly South” in History, Literature, and Popular Culture :

Download or read book The Scourges of the South? Essays on “The Sickly South” in History, Literature, and Popular Culture written by Thomas Ærvold Bjerre and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-10-17 with total page 195 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this book, eleven scholars “take their stand” on the controversial issue of disease as it occurs in the context of the American South. Playing on the popular vision of the South as an ill region on several levels, the European and American contributors interpret various aspects of the regional “sickly” culture as not so much southern “problems”, but, rather, southern opportunities, or else, springboards to yet another of the South’s cultural revitalizations, “health”. As Thomas Ærvold Bjerre and Beata Zawadka note in their introduction, the so-called “Healthy South” has never been an easy topic for scholars dealing with the region. One reason for this is that researchers have been taught to approach so formulated a topic no further than to the point when it turns out it is a contradiction in terms, and, indeed, there is much in southern history and the present situation that justifies such an approach. This volume, however, comprises a collective effort of southernist historians, literature experts, and culture critics to transcend the “contradictory” concept of the “Healthy South,” and does so by reinventing the notion of the southern disease and, consequently, the role of the South as a “scourge” in American culture in terms of this culture’s bountiful gift.
