A Student's History of American Literature
Read "A Student's History of American Literature."
In American Studies, Louis Menand combines nervous breakdown, racism, and antisemitism. He brings together these seemingly opposing forces to explore the importance of time, morality, and that little thing called writing. "We look backward for clues," and he says it's because "we have no place left to look." Are we disillusioned or just lost in the maze of literary history and culture?
