The Devil Gets His Due - The Uncollected Essays of Leslie Fiedler (Hardcover): Leslie Fiedler The Devil Gets His Due - The Uncollected Essays of Leslie Fiedler (Hardcover)
Leslie Fiedler; Edited by Samuele F. S. Pardini

For more than 50 years, Leslie Fiedler played a pivotal role in the development of American literary culture. Despite his often unacknowledged influence, the academy, intellectuals, and the general audience in America and abroad still read his work and draw on its concepts. The essays in "The Devil Gets His Due" reacquaint readers with the depth and breadth of Fiedler's achievements. Tackling subjects ranging wildly from Dante, Ezra Pound, and Mary McCarthy to Rambo, Iwo Jima, and Jerry Lewis, these writings showcase Fiedler's pioneering of an egalitarian canon that encompassed both "high" and popular literature, cinema, and history. As such, they show a powerful mind critiquing whole aspects of a culture and uncovering lessons therein that remain timely today. A lengthy introduction by Professor Samuele F. S. Pardini offers both context and history, with an in-depth profile of Fiedler and his career as both a literary critic and a public intellectual.

Despite his often-unacknowledged influence, academics, intellectuals, and the general audience in America and abroad still read Leslie Fiedler s work and draw on its concepts. He inspired both reverence (Leonard Cohen penned: "leaning over the American moonlight / like the shyest gargoyle / who will not become angry or old") and rage (Saul Bellow called him "the worst fucking thing that ever happened to American literature"). The essays in The Devil Gets His Due will reacquaint readers with the depth and breadth of Fiedler s achievements. Tackling subjects ranging wildly from Dante, Ezra Pound, and Mary McCarthy to Rambo, Iwo Jima, and Jerry Lewis, these writings showcase Fiedler s pioneering of an egalitarian canon that encompassed both "high" and popular literature, cinema, and history. As such, they show a powerful mind critiquing whole aspects of a culture and uncovering lessons therein that remain timely today. A lengthy introduction by Professor Samuele F. S.

A retrospective article on Leslie Fiedler in the "New York Times Book Review" in 1965 referred to Love and Death in the American Novel as "one of the great, essential books on the American imagination... an accepted major work." This groundbreaking work views in depth both American literature and character from the time of the American Revolution to the present. From it, there emerges Fiedler's once scandalous -- now increasingly accepted -- judgment that our literature is incapable of dealing with adult sexuality and is pathologically obsessed with death.
