The Achievement of Cormac McCarthy, McCarthy, Cormac. [Bell, Vereen M.]
4 McCarthy, Cormac. [Bell, Vereen M.] The Achievement of Cormac McCarthy
Baton Rouge LSU 1988 0807114081 / 9780807114087 First Edition/First Printing Hardcover Fine Fine 
The first systematic review of an "important but little-studied southern writer." This study covers McCarthy's early works through, and including, Blood Meridian. A lucid, penetrating, and much-needed study of one of contemporary American literature's most important novelists. Vereen Bell shows how McCarthy transforms the world through language, how he reconstitutes both urban and rural settings so that otherwise barely articulate and unheroic people live vividly in a context that is both modernist and antimodernist.
