Summary
"Saul Bellow is one of the most influential figures in 20th century American Literature. Bellow's work explores the most important cultural and social experiences of his era: the impact of the Holocaust, the urban experience of European immigrants from a Jewish perspective, the fraught failures of the Vietnam War, the ideological seduction of Marxism and Modernism, and changing attitudes between gender and race. This Companion demonstrates the complexity of this formative writer by emphasizing the ways in which Bellow's works speak to the changing conditions of American identity and culture from the post war period to the turn of the 21st century"--
