9780814319949: The Modern American Urban Novel: Nature as

Arnold Goldsmith challenges the view held by some modern writers and critics that nature is conspicuously absent in the modern urban novel. To prove his point, he submits seven 20th century American works to a close textual analysis.

Goldsmith interprets Henry Roth's phrase "interior structure" to mean the interweaving of physical description and symbolism, metaphor and characterization, and theme and imagery that give internal form to external narrative. With this definition, Goldsmith demonstrates that nature is an integral part of the setting, language, symbolism, and even characterization in these seven novels. The scale may be greatly reduced, the appearance less spectacular, but the results are still aesthetically impressive and thematically effective.

Goldsmith's perspective helps readers discover some of the richness, beauty and complexity of modern American fiction at its best.
