Drawing on critical frameworks, this study establishes the centrality of language, gender, and community in the quest for identity in contemporary American fiction. Close readings of novels by Alice Walker, Ernest Gaines, Ann Beattie, John Updike, Chang-rae Lee, and Rudolfo Anaya, among others, show how individuals find their American identities.
MARY JANE HURST is a Professor of English at Texas Tech University, USA, and the author of The Voice of the Child in American Literature: Linguistic Approaches to Fictional Child Language.
