"The thirteen essays focus mainly on prose fiction, but also consider recent poetry. Using a variety of critical approaches, they investigate how contemporary American literature uses mythology, for example, to redirect debate over issues of race, ethnicity and gender. Above all, this book opens up ways to redefine how myths influence American writing and re-establishes mythology as an essential critical and theoretical framework for literary interpretation."--BOOK JACKET.
