9780820332628: Desperate Storytelling: Post-Romantic Elaborations of The Mock-Heroic Mode

Desperate Storytelling demonstrates how writers from Byron to Saul Bellow have embraced Cervantes's vision of the artist as creative exile, born to tell tales of valor and nobility yet doomed to recognize the world's banal reality. Forced to portray adventure in a reductive voice, these writers have immersed heroism in madness and narrative in mockery. Their fictions reflect an awareness of life's absurdities, yet a refusal to forsake the ideal.

Reassessing the post-Romantic literary consciousness, Roger B. Salomon explores the many permutations of the mock-heroic mode, the complex aesthetic instrument brought into being by Cervantes, one by which a writer takes on a dual role as both nostalgic creator and ironic critic. The mock hero is almost by definition an outdated one, aligning his deepest emotional attachments to dead mythologies and forgotten codes of ethics; he is an alienated figure in a landscape hostile to the possibility of any kind of attainment. Just as Don Quixote's noble madness in an ignoble age invites both sympathy and derision, so later incarnations of the mock hero immerse the reader in a dialogue between the real and a faded ideal, between the sensible and the admirable.

Describing a literary mode that joins heroic endeavor with its deflating results, Desperate Storytelling traces the adventures of literature's misplaced heroes from Nabokov's Berlin to Saul Bellow's Chicago, from James Joyce's Dublin to Mark Twain's Mississippi.

About the Author:

Roger B. Salomon is professor emeritus of English at Case Western Reserve University.

From Library Journal:

Salomon states at the outset that the mock-heroic arises from the "radical disjunction between the heroic pretentions of the protagonist and the actual banality of his world," and therefore transcends mere satire or parody. He then uses Cervantes's Don Quixote as a framework for examining the mock-heroic in subsequent writers: Stendhal, Byron, Kenneth Grahame, Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain, and Alphonse Daudet in the 19th century; and Joyce, William Carlos Williams, Wallace Stevens, Nabokov, and Saul Bellow in more recent times. This meticulous work, which presupposes both a thorough knowledge of the writers examined and a solid grounding in the technical language of literary criticism, is for the serious student of literature.Charles E. Perry, Central Coll . Lib., Pella, Ia.
