Overview

When James Gould Cozzens died on 9 August 1978, his literary career had spanned 13 novels and 54 years, and his dedication to his craft had produced a body of fiction unsurpassed in its fidelity to life and in hard intelligence. Yet, the brilliant body of work by this master American novelist has elicited little crit­ical attention. The process of reappraisal commences with this volume.

The essays assembled here, for the most part previously unpublished, indi­cate some worthwhile critical approaches and suggest useful areas for further ex­amination. Contributors include Louis O. Coxe, Colin Cass, John William Ward, Pierre Michel, Robert Scholes, R. H. W. Dillard, R. V. Cassill, Morris H. Wolff, and Leland H. Cox, Jr.
