Individual and Community : Variations on a Theme in American Fiction Hardback

Edited by Kenneth H. Baldwin, David K. Kirby


The contributors to Individual and Community attempt to illuminate aspects of the individual-community relationship.

Though different in focus and approach, the essays themselves express a "community" of concern, a concern which includes not just the situations of characters in fictional worlds, but one which touches the relationship of both novelists and reader to a world of words. The essays are intended to point to the continuity of an important theme in American fiction and to offer insight into the variety of philosophical and literary strategies utilized in significant works of significant authors in dealing with the question of the individual and the community.
