Summary
"Experts in the field of sports literature, Editors Michael Cocchiarale and Scott D. Emmert, Associate Professors of English at Widener University and the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, respectively, present a collection that analyzes works by many of the most well known authors of the last century, including Ernest Hemingway, Jack London, Don Delillo, and David Foster Wallace. Introductory chapters offer a survey of critical approaches as well as history of the genre that will be instructive for students and their teachers, drawing the dimensions of the field within which writers and scholars consider sports and fiction. After these contextualizing essays come nine chapters that take particular critical views of selected works of both canonical and understudied sports fiction, providing original readings that keep both teacher and student in mind. Why this literature is important and how readers can more fully understand it guide the selections for a volume distinguished in its scope and originality. Contributors include Peter Kratzke, Tracy J.R. Collins, Scott D. Peterson, and Mathew J. Bartkowiak."--easons.com
