Books Info:

Thornton Wilder free pdf The essays in "Thornton Wilder: New Perspectives" constitute a comprehensive critical reassessment at a time of renewed interest in the writer. Wilder is best known for "Our Town "and "The Bridge of San Luis Rey, "both winners of a Pulitzer Prize, making Wilder still the only writer to be so honored for both drama and fiction. His other fiction, in particular, is far less familiar to a wider readership. The authors of these essays aim to contextualize Wilder s work historically and to show that Wilder s handling of questions of religion, American identity, gender, and ethics should vault him into the ranks of major American novelists. Specifically, this anthology" "includes groundbreaking work on the application of queer theory to "Our Town-" on Wilder s screenplay for the Alfred Hitchcock film "Shadow of a Doubt-" and on Wilder s adaptations of Ibsen s "A Doll s House, " Farquhar s "The Beaux Stratagem, " and his own "The Long Christmas Dinner."
