Synopsis: For more than 50 years, Leslie Fiedler played a pivotal role in the development of American literary culture. Despite his often unacknowledged influence, the academy, intellectuals, and the general audience in America and abroad still read his work and draw on its concepts. The essays in The Devil Gets His Due reacquaint readers with the depth and breadth of Fiedler’s achievements. Tackling subjects ranging wildly from Dante, Ezra Pound, and Mary McCarthy to Rambo, Iwo Jima, and Jerry Lewis, these writings showcase Fiedler’s pioneering of an egalitarian canon that encompassed both high” and popular literature, cinema, and history. As such, they show a powerful mind critiquing whole aspects of a culture and uncovering lessons therein that remain timely today. A lengthy introduction by Professor Samuele F. S. Pardini offers both context and history, with an in-depth profile of Fiedler and his career as both a literary critic and a public intellectual.

Review: PRAISE FOR LESLIE FIEDLER

Fiedler was the original chest-thumping extrovert of American criticism, and no one ever did it better.” Slate

One of the most daring skinny-dippers in U.S. literary and social criticism Fiedler has boldly led his readers down whirlpools of the national subconscious.” Time

A scandalous interpreter of American literature and an all-around intellectual wild man.” Chronicle of Higher Education

Fiedler’s masterpiece Love and Death in the American Novel [is] usually regarded as one of the few indispensable works in the field. But Fiedler’s ideas resonated far beyond the academy to echo throughout American culture [An] indelible, invaluable critic.” Bookforum

It is impossible to read Leslie Fiedler’s criticism without a sense of awe and excitement.” The Los Angeles Times
