Annual Bibliography of Philip Roth Criticism and Resources-2007

Article excerpt

What follows is a bibliography of Philip Roth-related texts published during 2007, including primary works by and interviews with Roth, critical works (monographs, book chapters, and journal essays), book reviews and newspaper profiles, and adaptations of Roth's fiction. With the exception ot the interview listings, all sources are arranged in alphabetical order according to the author's last name. The individually authored chapters that make up an edited book collection (such as Parrish's Cambridge Companion) are included under the "Chapters from Books" section with appropriate cross-listed information. Only the original American editions of Roth's works are listed below. Of the book reviews, only substantive pieces appearing in major English-language publications are included. All critical sources not published in English are listed under the section "Criticism in Foreign Languages." With any reviews or inrerviews that are published by more than one newspaper (e.g., those written by freelance journalists or provided through such outlets as the Associated Press), only the most substantive or complete version is included. In the case of reprinted works, all original publication information is listed along with its more current bibliographic information. All listed dissertations include one or more substantive sections or chapters on Roth's writings.

For all newspaper-related entries, only the initial page numbers (when available) are included. Researchers can find complete newspaper reviews and profiles through simple searches of periodical databases (such as LexisNexis and Access World News) and online newspaper archives, and in most cases these resources provide no page information that corresponds with the hardcopy. Since many magazines and journals have not yet gone the way of most newspapers - except in the case of PDF reproduction, where an exact digital "photograph" of the original hardcopy is made available - complete page information for these sources are included in the bibliographic update, except in the case of publications such as Slate and Nextbook, solely online magazines that include no page information.
