Sacred Violence: Volume 2. Cormac MacCarthy's Western Novels

£19.99

Product description

Sacred Violence: Volume 2. Cormac MacCarthy's Western Novels - Wade Hall and Rick Wallach (eds)

El Paso: Texas Western Press. Second edition, 2002. pp 231.

Softback format, almost as-new. The book looks unread, with very light shelf wear to the faces and text block. Text nice and clear with no marks.

In response to the rapidly growing critical interest in one of America's leading authors, twelve brand new essays and articles have been added to the original set of critical articles from the 1993 First Conference on Cormac McCarthy in this revised double edition of Sacred Violence. In Volume II, which focuses on the Western Novels, Harold Bloom, one of the preeminent literary critics of our time, discusses McCarthy's use of language and landscape in Blood Meridian, Nick Monk and Jay Ellis offer complex analyses of the epic Border Trilogy, Raymond Todd reflects upon the film of All the Pretty Horses, and Edwin Arnold reevaluates the importance of The Orchard Keeper as a preliminary crafting of future McCarthy themes and characters. Author/Artist Peter Josyph's meditation on reading the Blood Meridian aloud, and Dianne Luce's contributes a trenchant character study of All the Pretty Horses' John Grady Cole. Other distinguished scholars examine issues of violence, religious imagery, the tradition of black humor, the remarkable characters-like Blood Meridian's Judge Holden-and the idiosyncratic styles of McCarthy's novels and dramatic works.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
