The Woman in the Novels of Saul Bellow

Front Cover
Atlantic Publishers & Dist, 2006 - American fiction - 144 pages
The Book Presents In Brief A Critical Study Of Saul Bellow S Vision Of Woman In General. As The Novelist Has Presented A Variety Of Women Having Contradictory Traits, Any Attempt At Flat Generalisation Has Been Considered Forbidding. In Spite Of His Jewish Lineage And Specific Jewish Themes, Saul Bellow Has Established Himself As A Humanistic And Conscientious American Novelist. Hence, Such Conception, As Popular In Jewish Tradition, That His Woman Characters Must Occupy A Subordinate Place And Their Freedom Of Mind Shall Be Restricted, Seems To Be Futile. Far From Being Misogynous As It Is Sometimes Alleged By A Few Critics, His Vision Of Woman Appears To Be Balanced, Objective And Free From Personal Prejudice.The Book Is A Valuable Study On Nobel Laureate Saul Bellow, And All Those Who Admire His Works Would Find It Interesting And Useful As It Will Enable Them To See His Characters From A Different Perspective. Students And Also The Teachers Of English Literature Will Find It Highly Informative.
