Synopsis: Howard Frank Mosher has spent the greater part of his career depicting a relatively isolated section of Vermont known as the Northeast Kingdom. Yet, even as he writes about that particular area in the Green Mountain State, he is investigating age-old themes from among the best English and American literary works. His first novel, Disappearances (1977), signaled the arrival of a master craftsman harkening us back to Melville's Billy Budd and Moby-Dick, in terms of humankind's struggle against an ever present evil. A full 33 years after the publication of his first novel, the Vermont author, in Walking to Gatlinburg (2010), examined the polarity between cowardice and honor. In the intervening years, between Disappearances and Gatlinburg, Mosher explored crucial matters such as the disappearing wilderness, industrialization, black male/white female encounters, the necessity of humor, the quest for salvation, and the immortality of romantic love, all issues that he delved into as he staked out a unique terrain within the pantheon of Bunyan, Shakespeare, Dreiser, Twain, Faulkner, Steinbeck, Harper Lee, and others.

About the Author: James Robert Saunders is a professor of English at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Book Description McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book draws connections between Vermont author Howard Frank Mosher and works of classic American literature. Chapter I explores the horrors of the Civil War as conveyed in Mosher s Walking to Gatlinburg and Stephen Crane s The Red Badge of Courage. Major characters escape the battlefield and then feel a need to redeem themselves for what could be a cowardly act. Chapter II analyses how Mosher and three classic authors explore the physical and moral dangers of industrialisation, especially women s safety. Chapter III compares Mosher s Walking to Gatlinburg to Bunyan s Pilgrim s Progress in terms of the quest for Heaven. In Chapter IV, Melville s novels are used to address evil as it appears in Mosher s Disappearances.Chapter V explores black men with white women in Harper Lee s To Kill a Mockingbird and Mosher s A Stranger in the Kingdom. Humour is at the core of Chapter VI, comparing Mark Twain s Huckleberry Finn to Mosher s The True Account. In Chapter VII, the disappearing wilderness is the issue in Faulkner s Go Down, Moses and several of Mosher s works. Chapter VIII offers romantic love as a shield against other human beings. A conclusion draws on Steinbeck, Twain and Mosher to elaborate on how one should explore as much of the world as possible. Seller Inventory # AAN9780786478569
