America is a nation making itself up as it goes along a story of discovery and invention unfolding in speeches and images letters and poetry unprecedented feats of scholarship and imagination In these myriad multiform endlessly changing expressions of the American experience the authors and editors of this volume find a new American history br br In more than two hundred original essays A New Literary History of America brings together the nation s many voices From the first conception of a New World in the sixteenth century to the latest re envisioning of that world in cartoons television science fiction and hip hop the book gives us a new kaleidoscopic view of what Made in America means Literature music film art history science philosophy political rhetoric cultural creations of every kind appear in relation to each other and to the time and place that give them shape br br The meeting of minds is extraordinary as T J Clark writes on Jackson Pollock Paul Muldoon on Carl Sandburg Camille Paglia on Tennessee Williams Sarah Vowell on Grant Wood s American Gothic Walter Mosley on hard boiled detective fiction Jonathan Lethem on Thomas Edison Gerald Early on Tarzan Bharati Mukherjee on The Scarlet Letter Gish Jen on Catcher in the Rye and Ishmael Reed on Huckleberry Finn From Anne Bradstreet and John Winthrop to Philip Roth and Toni Morrison from Alexander Graham Bell and Stephen Foster to Alcoholics Anonymous Life Chuck Berry Alfred Hitchcock and Ronald Reagan this is America singing celebrating itself and becoming something altogether different plural singular new br br Please visit a target blank href http www newliteraryhistory com rel nofollow www newliteraryhistory com a for more information, This is a secret history of modern times told by way of what conventional history tries to exclude Lipstick Traces tells a story as disruptive and compelling as the century itself Hip metaphorical and allusive Gail Caldwell Boston Sunday Globe Full color illustrations and halftones, Van Morrison says Greil Marcus remains a singer who can be compared to no other in the history of modern popular music When Astral Weeks was released in it was largely ignored When it was rereleased as a live album in it reached the top of the i Billboard i charts a first for any Van Morrison recording The wild swings in the music mirroring the swings in Morrison s success and in people s appreciation or lack of it of his music make Van Morrison one of the most perplexing and mysterious figures in popular modern music and a perfect subject for the wise and insightful scrutiny of Greil Marcus one of America s most dedicated cultural critics p This book is Marcus s quest to understand Van Morrison s particular genius through the extraordinary and unclassifiable moments in his long career beginning in and continuing in full force to this day In these dislocations Marcus finds the singer on his own artistic quest precisely to reach some extreme musical threshold the moments that are not enclosed by the will or the intention of the performer but which somehow emerge at the limits of the musician and his song p, A fan from the moment the Doors first album took over KMPX the revolutionary FM rock amp roll station in San Francisco Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in Five years later it was all over Forty years after the singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded one could drive from here to there changing from one FM pop station to another and be all but guaranteed to hear two three four Doors songs in an hour every hour Whatever the demands in the music they remained unsatisfied in the largest sense unfinished and absolutely alive There have been many books on the Doors This is the first to bypass their myth their mystique and the death cult of both Jim Morrison and the era he was made to personify and focus solely on the music It is a story untold all these years later it is a new story
