Overview

In this collection of critical reviews, Bloom (humanities, Yale U.) and contributors prove not everyone was lost in the Lost Generation; many a fine writer found his or her voice amongst all the ennui, dissipation and agitation. Authors and topics under review include Sherwood Anderson's take on the American myth, Sinclair Lewis's take in the implied America, Steinbeck's newfound maturity, Don Passos's art of performance, Cather's modernism, Hurston's voice and metaphor, Faulkner's inspirations and counter-inspirations, Gertrude Stein's return to clarity, and Hemingway's expatriate predicament and understanding of the life beyond war, among others.
