The Modern American Urban Novel: Nature as "interior Structure"
Wayne State University Press, 1991 - 179 pàgines
Goldsmith challenges the view that nature is absent in the modern urban novel, and interprets the phrase the interweaving of physical description and symbolism, metaphor and characterization, and theme and imagery that give internal form to external narrative. He provides a textual analysis of seven 20th- century American novels: Manhattan transfer, Studs Lonigan, Call it sleep, The Dollmaker, The Assistant, The Pawnbroker, and Mr. Sammler's planet.
