About the Author

John Barth taught for many years in the writing program at Johns Hopkins University, and he lives in Chestertown, Maryland. (Publisher Provided) John Simmons Barth was born on May 27, 1930 in Cambridge, Maryland. He is considered to be one of the American writers who introduced a U.S. audience to näytä lisää experimental fiction. Barth began as a conventional novelist, exploring existential themes of suicide in The Floating Opera (1956) and the complexity of love in The End of the Road (1958). By the end of the 1950s, however, he was exploring less realistic techniques to keep the reader from being pulled into the story, and thus to make larger points. Those techniques include parody, which Barth first used in The Sot-Weed Factor (1960), to mock the style of the eighteenth-century picaresque novel, and Giles Goat-Boy (1966), which depicts the world as a giant university. In Chimera (1972), for which he won the National Book Award, Barth applied his method to retell classical myths. His later works include Letters (1979), in which Barth himself appears as a character, and Sabbatical (1982), the story of a woman college professor and her novelist husband, both of whom address the reader and author. Barth's other novels include The Tidewater Tales (1987) and The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor (1991). For most of his career as a writer, he has also been a professor of English, teaching at Pennsylvania State University, the State University of New York at Buffalo, and The Johns Hopkins University.

הפעם השלישית שאני קורא את הספר. זכרתי את הקריאה הראשונה לפני כשישים שנה אבל לא זכרתי שקראתי אותו שנית לפני כשבע שנים. רק להדגים מה קורה לזכרון שלי בשנים האחרונות. אין לי הרבה מה להוסיף על הביקורת הקודמת ועל השפעתו של ג'ון בארט עלי. אומר רק שגם בקריאה השלישית נהניתי מכל רגע ונראה לי שהערכתי יותר מאשר קודם את הוירטואוזיות של בארט. את המעברים שלו מדיון פילוזופי אקזיסטנציאליסטי, לסלפסטיק מאני ולבסוף לטרגדיה אמתית שמביאה דמעות לעיניים. סופר גדול.… (lisätietoja)
