AUTHOR

SUMMARY

At the heart of this important new book is the tension between literacy and the open acknowledgement of discrepancies within social and linguistic fields on the one hand, and what Sussman terms the resolving function, the utopian picture of harmony depicted by the state and large organizations, on the other. Combining literary theory with close textual readings of works by Hawthorne, Melville, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, and Italo Calvino, this book is thefirst to explore the socio-political correlatives to literary studies - the mass media's ambivalence towards the linguistic apprehensions and skills that make them possible.Sussman, Henry is the author of 'High Resolution Critical Theory and the Problem of Literacy' with ISBN 9780195055030 and ISBN 0195055039.
