Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The volume is poignant in its deliberate application of one academic theory to one text in each essay...Graduate seminars will study this book for a good while." - Thomas Austenfeld, Department of English,University of Fribourg, Switzerland

"With Louise Erdrich: “Tracks,” “The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse,” “The Plague of Doves,” editor Deborah L. Madsen brings together a collection of articles by some of the most published scholars on Erdrich in the field, including P. Jane Hafen, Connie A. Jacobs, and David Stirrup. The result is an important and versatile critical compilation that employs a wide variety of theoretical approaches and enables readers to interpret Erdrich’s work in new, relevant, and thought- provoking ways...Another strength of the text is the variety of theoretical approaches the contributing writers use, from ecocriticism to postcolonial theory, from trauma theory to Native American theoretical approaches. These varied lenses help readers to consider Erdrich’s work from many diff erent viewpoints. Moreover, Madsen’s text “feels” like a unified whole rather than merely a hodgepodge collection of literary- critical essays." - Jill Walker Gonzalez, University of New Mexico
