About this title

Synopsis:

in "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 studies are dominated by a rage for theorizing about literature, Hoffman's new book returns us to the actual source of the author's imagination.

About the Author:

Daniel Hoffman served as Consultant in Poetry of the Library of Congress, the appointment now called Poet Laureate of the United States, in 1973--74, and as Poet in Residence of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, l988--99, administering the American Poets' Corner. His eight books of shorter poems -- including the most recent, Darkening Water -- and his earlier selected poetry collection, Hang-Gliding from Helicon, are augmented by two book-length poems: Brotherly Love, a meditation of William Penn's treaty with the Indians and a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award; and his novel in verse, Middens of the Tribe. He is the author of eight books of nonfiction, including Poe Poe Poe Poe Poe Poe Poe -- also a finalist for the National Book Award -- and Zone of the Interior: A Memoir, 1942--1947. Now Felix E. Schelling Professor of English Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania, he lives with his wife in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, and Harborside, Maine.
