Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Martin Luther University (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Modernism and Its Others: U.S.-American Literature and Culture in the 1920s, 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: When the French philosopher, critic and writer Jean-Paul Sartre concluded an essay on the American novelist John Dos Passos in 1938 with the words “I regard Dos Passos as the greatest writer of our time” it was quite clear that the author of the trilogy U.S.A. had joined the class of the most important and influential writers in American literature. The three novels of the trilogy are critical documents and portraits of the history and life of the American nation during the first three decades of the 20 th century. U.S.A. is a social and political work that is shaped by the stylistic experimentation of the author who treats art in the service of history 1 and therefore leaves him in a literary outstanding position. This term paper aims to explain and justify this position of Dos Passos by examining and analyzing The Big Money which was the final novel of U.S.A. First of all, this work will give an overview and assessment of the trilogy as a whole to facilitate an analytical insight into its meaning and purpose. Secondly, the four different styles of narration will be discussed. The third part of the paper will deal with The Big Money: What is the historical context of the novel? Who are the main characters? Finally, the themes of the novel will be shortly summarized in the fourth part of this paper. [...]

Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Das Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, den 1925 erschienenen Roman Manhattan Transfer des amerikanischen Autors John Dos Passos auf der Grundlage des Marx'schen Entfremdungsbegriffes, der grundsätzlich soziologisch begründet ist, eine psychologische Sichtweise aber nicht ausschließt, zu untersuchen. Natürlich ist, bevor man zur eigentlichen Interpretation gelangen kann, einige Vorarbeit nötig. Da der Begriff der Entfremdung in der Literatur oft nur erwähnt, aber selten genau definiert oder hergeleitet wird und er, je nach philosophischem Hintergrund, verschieden interpretiert werden kann, scheint es notwendig, ihn zunächst einmal genauer zu bestimmen. Dies soll in einem ersten, theoretischen Teil geschehen. Auf dieser Grundlage kann dann eine Verbindung zwischen Entfremdung und dem Leben des Menschen in der modernen Großstadt hergestellt werden, wobei - im Hinblick auf den Roman Manhattan Transfer - in einem gesonderten Teil auf die moderne amerikanische Großstadt New York einzugehen sein wird, da diese sich in vielerlei Hinsicht von anderen Städten unterscheidet. Weiterhin soll auf die Bedeutung der Großstadt für die Literatur und insbesondere für den Autor John Dos Passos, der einige Jahre seines Lebens in New York zugebracht hat, eingegangen werden. Eine detaillierte Darstellung der Entwicklung des Autors in politischer Hinsicht würde den begrenzten Rahmen dieser Arbeit sprengen. Nach einem einleitenden Kapitel zu Form und Inhalt von Manhattan Transfer, soll schließlich untersucht werden, inwiefern man das im Roman dargestellte Leben der Menschen in der Großstadt als ein entfremdetes bezeichnen kann, welches die Mechanismen und Symptome ihrer Entfremdung, z.B. in Bezug auf ihre Arbeit, ihre Verhaltensweisen, ihre Wahrnehmung oder ihre Beziehungen zu anderen, sind.

Handbook Of The American Novel Of The Twentieth And Twenty First Centuries

Increasing specialization within the discipline of English and American Studies has shifted the focus of scholarly discussion toward theoretical reflection and cultural contexts. These developments have benefitted the discipline in more ways than one, but they have also resulted in a certain neglect of close reading. As a result, students and researchers interested in such material are forced to turn to scholarship from the 1960s and 1970s, much of which relies on dated methodological and ideological presuppositions. The handbook aims to fill this gap by providing new readings of texts that figure prominently in the literature classroom and in scholarly debate − from James’s The Ambassadors to McCarthy’s The Road. These readings do not revert naively to a time “before theory.” Instead, they distil the insights of literary and cultural theory into concise introductions to the historical background, the themes, the formal strategies, and the reception of influential literary texts, and they do so in a jargon-free language accessible to readers on all levels of qualification.
