The Midwestern Novel

by Nancy L. Bunge, The Midwestern Novel Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Midwestern Novel books, With Huckleberry Finn, American fiction changed radically and shifted its setting to the middle of the country. A focus on social issues replaced the philosophic and psychological explorations that dominated the work of Melville and Hawthorne. Colloquial speech rather than elevated language articulated these fresh ideas, while common folk rather than dramatic characters like Ahab and Hester Prynne played central roles. This transformation of American literature has been largely ignored, while during the 130 years since Huckleberry Finn the Midwest has continued to produce writers whose work, like Twain's, addresses injustice by portraying the decency of ordinary people. Since the end of the 19th century, Midwestern authors have dismissed the elite and celebrated those whom the power structure typically excludes: children, women, African-Americans and the lower classes. Instead of wealth and power, this literature values authenticity and compassion. The book explores this literary tradition by examining the work of 30 Midwestern writers including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Willa Cather, Ernest Hemingway, Richard Wright, Saul Bellow, Toni Morrison, Jonathan Franzen, Jane Smiley and Louise Erdrich.

Walker London 2012

by James London, Walker London 2012 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Walker London 2012 books, Leading the UK track and field team to gold medal winning glory at the Athens Olympics in 2004 and again at Beijing in 2008 was enough for British Athletics to turn again to Walker and persuade him - the UK's greatest ever track and field athlete - out of retirement to save the nation from ignominy and disgrace after the greatest ever disaster in the build-up to any modern Olympics; a disaster that could destroy a nation. Forsaking his scientific research into the subject of longevity at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina, and with the help of his mentor and Olympics athletics coach Cassius, Walker returns to the venue for the 30th Olympiad in London in time to compete against the greatest Decathletes in the world. His return to athletics awakens and inspires the nation. Is their support enough? This is the story of Walker's single-handed attempt to restore Britain's pride in itself and its reputation as a great sporting nation.
