The novels of Paul Auster—finely wrought, self-reflexive, jam-packed with doublings, coincidences, and mysteries—have captured the mind's eye of readers and the admiration of many critics of latest literature. In Beyond the purple Notebook, the 1st e-book dedicated to the works of Auster, Dennis Barone has assembled a global crew of students who current twelve essays that supply a wealthy and insightful exam of Auster's writings.
The authors discover connections among Auster's poetry and fiction, the philosophical underpinnings of his writing, its relation to detective fiction, and its specific embodiment of the postmodern elegant. Their essays give you the fullest research to be had of Auster's topics of solitude, likelihood, and paternity present in works akin to The Invention of Solitude, City of Glass, Ghosts, The Locked Room, In the rustic of final Things, Moon Palace, The song of Chance, and Leviathan.
This quantity contains contributions from Pascal Bruckner, Marc Chenetier, Norman Finkelstein, Derek Rubin, Madeleine Sorapure, Stephen Bernstein, Tim Woods, Steven Weisenburger, Arthur Saltzman, Eric Wirth, and Motoyuki Shibata. The wide bibliography, ready by way of William Drenttel, will tremendously profit either students and normal readers.
