Philip Roth: New Perspectives on an American Author By Derek Parker Royal
Publisher: Praeger Publishers 2005 | 316 Pages | ISBN: 0275983633 | PDF | 15 MB

“The most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of essays available.... He has included work by some of the best Roth critics and scholars.... The essays are mostly each on a single work but written intertextually so that readers get a sense of Roth's development and growth as a novelist. This will be extremely useful for students at every level as well as for the general reader who wants to understand and appreciate Roth's fiction.”–Jay L. Halio, Professor of English Emeritus University of Delaware author of Philip Roth Revisited

“The first collection of essays that both illuminates and expands our critical understanding of all Roth's major and minor writings. It will be of equal interest to both the Roth specialist and the general reader.”–Ben Siegel, Professor of English California State Polytechnic University, Ponoma, author of Turning Up the Flame: Philip Roth's Later Novels

“Royal's collection is a broad ranging and timely critical reassessment of the Roth oeuvre by major scholars who examine with freshness and brilliance Roth's postmodern treatment of such contemporary issues as gender, ethnicity, Jewishness, metafiction, the problematics of the American dream, American history, the status of truth, and Roth's many-layered narrative masks. Lively, erudite, substantive, sophisticated and elegantly edited. This is a major contribution to the study of one of postmodern America's major living writers.”–Gloria L. Cronin, Editor: Saul Bellow Journal Executive Coordinator, American Literature Association Co-Director, Jewish American and Holocaust Literature Association
