Synopsis: This book discusses works by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Saul Bellow in terms of the conflicts between rhetorical people (actors replete with ever-changing roles, situations, and strategies, and therefore devoid of single roles) and serious people (actors who possess master situations or a referent reality to which they believe everyone can refer), players and doers, artifices and realities, words and the world, and multivocal and univocal interpretations. This book claims that Fitzgerald?s and Bellow?s treatment of the concepts of actors and acting in their novels provides insights into the dynamic potential of the trope as presented by recent critics and reveals how some literary theories need refinement and modification.

From the Back Cover: "Jamal Assadi's argument-tracing the connections between rhetoric, acting, and action-is both theoretically provocative and profoundly serious, offering a fresh understanding of the paradoxically moral artifice of two of America's greatest novelists." Judith Newman, Professor of American Studies, University of Nottingham, University Park, England
