9780140551129: Love and Death in the American Novel (Peregrine Books)

A retrospective article on Leslie Fiedler in the New York Times Book Review in 1965 referred to Love and Death in the American Novel as "one of the great, essential books on the American imagination...an accepted major work." This groundbreaking work views in depth both American literature and character from the time of the American Revolution to the present. From it, there emerges Fiedler's once scandalous -- now increasingly accepted -- judgment that our literature is incapable of dealing with adult sexuality and is pathologically obsessed with death.

Review:

In its insights the book remains immensely intelligent, immediate, and vital. --David Plante
