About the Author:

John Barth is the author of such classic works as The Tidewater Tales, Lost in the Funhouse, The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor, and the National Book Award winner Chimera.


Picaresque novel by John Barth, originally published in 1960 and revised in 1967. A parody of the historical novel, it is based on and takes its title from a satirical poem published in 1708 by Ebenezer Cooke, who is the protagonist of Barth's work. The novel's black humor is derived from its purposeful misuse of conventional literary devices. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
