Product description

Review

"No one after Heberle will probably ever read O'Brien's texts as thoroughly or meticulously as he has from start to finish, and no one will probably need to...It will become, I suspect, the standard exegetical text as well."--Philip Beidler, author of "American Literature and the Experience of Vietnam and Re-Writing America: Vietnam Authors in Their Generation"

"A truly praiseworthy work--Heberle manages to combine biographical, psychological, and historical criticism and analysis in convincing analytical and synthetic ways...An enlightening journey through the life and works of a key voice in contemporary American literature."--Thomas Myers, author of"Walking Point: American Narratives of Vietnam"

Walking Point: American Narratives of Vietnam

Synopsis

This study examines how Tim O'Brien's works variously rewrite his own traumatization during the war in Vietnam by offering a never-ending fiction that "recovers" personal experience by both recapturing and (re)disguising it. The critique is set in the context of postmodern metafiction.
