About this product
- Descriptionin Form and Fable in American Fiction, Daniel Hoffman demonstrated the relationship between the literary imagination in America and our myths, fables, and folktales. Reasserting and deepening the thesis of that study in Faulkner's Country Matters, Hoffman provides rich readings of The Unvanquished, The Hamlet, and Go Down, Moses, and at the same time offers a moving, often profound meditation on the American sense of history as myth and myth as history. Appearing at a moment when Faulker stud are dominated by a rage for theorizing about literature, Hoffman's new book returns us to the actual source of the author's imagination.
