James Gould Cozzens: New Acquist of True Experience


When James Gould Cozzens died on 9 August 1978, his literary career had spanned 13novels and 54 years, and his dedication to his craft had produced a body of fiction unsurpassed in its fidelity to life and in hard intelligence. Yet, the brilliant body of work by this master American novelist has elicited little critical attention. The process of reappraisal commences with this volume.

The essays assembled here, for the most part previously unpublished, indicate some worthwhile critical approaches and suggest useful areas for further examination. Contributors include Louis O. Coxe, Colin Cass, John William Ward, Pierre Michel, Robert Scholes, R. H. W. Dillard, R. V. Cassill, Morris H. Wolff, and Leland H. Cox, Jr.
