Editorial Reviews

Review


"Limon's book is extraordinarily good. It is an important book, not only for students of American literature but for anyone concerned with the methodology and effective practice of cultural studies. The writing is, throughout, elegant, witty, and transparently accessible."--Warner Berthoff, Harvard University


"Superb: it offers an original and valuable reconceptualization of a very old problem (the relations between literature and war), it makes brilliant applications of contemporary literary theory, it offers fresh, formidable interpretations of almost every fictional text it mentions, and is strikingly writte and argued. I'm going to recommend it highly and widely."--Jay Watson, University of Mississippi


"The attractive feature of this book is the way it broaches a whole series of interesting and unusual issues, and focuses on many of the familiar American writers from a new perspective."--Journal of American Studies


"...Limon offers critical readings of an impressively wide range of authors. He is able to move with grace and aplomb between writers as different as Louisa May Alcott and Luce Irigaray....Writing After War is a thoughtful, learned interpretation of postwar American writing, and it makes a valuable contribution to the studies of American literature, aesthetics, and war."--CLIO


From the Back Cover

Limon's book is extraordinarily good. It is an important book, not only for students of American literature but for anyone concerned with the methodology and effective practice of cultural studies. The writing is, throughout, elegant, witty, and transparently accessible.
