Editorial Reviews

Review

The volume is poignant in its deliberate application of one academic theory to one text in each essay...Graduate seminars will study this book for a good while. (Thomas Austenfeld, Department of English,University of Fribourg, Switzerland)

"With Louise Erdrich: "Tracks," "The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse," "The Plague of Doves," editor Deborah L. Madsen brings together a collection of articles by some of the most published scholars on Erdrich in the field, including P. Jane Hafen, Connie A. Jacobs, and David Stirrup. The result is an important and versatile critical compilation that employs a wide variety of theoretical approaches and enables readers to interpret Erdrich's work in new, relevant, and thought- provoking ways...Another strength of the text is the variety of theoretical approaches the contributing writers use, from ecocriticism to postcolonial theory, from trauma theory to Native American theoretical approaches. These varied lenses help readers to consider Erdrich's work from many diff erent viewpoints. Moreover, Madsen's text "feels" like a unified whole rather than merely a hodgepodge collection of literary- critical essays." - Jill Walker Gonzalez, University of New Mexico

Format: Kindle Edition
I bought it on the impression that it was a combined edition of Louise Erdrich books. It is not. It is a book of criticism and analysis.

This book, a collection of critical essays about three of Erdrich's books, was a valuable addition to my collection. I own all seven of the books in the Continuum Studies Contemporary N American Fiction series, all bought from Amazon. I often lend them to my students who are writing about one of the seven novelists (Erdrich, Cormac McCarthy, Bret Easton Ellis, Toni Morrison, Don Delillo, Margaret Atwood, and Philip Roth). These books all have been helpful to me and to my students.

As to someone being misled about the nature and contents of these books, the description for each book seems quite clear. For example, for this one, it says: "Focusing on such topics as humor, religion, ethnicity, gender, race, sexuality, trauma, history, and narrative form, the essays collected here offer fresh readings of Erdrich's explorations of Native American identities through her innovative fictions."

This document was obviously never proof-read or edited. I wish I could demand my money back.

Same issue. This is NOT a collection of three of Erdrich's books. It is a collection of essays. This issue needs to be corrected.
