In Bad Faith: Dynamics of Deception in Mark Twain's America (New edition)
By: Forrest G. Robinson (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
"Bad faith" as the author calls the dissonance between what we profess to believe, how we act and how we interpret our own behaviour, is more than a theme in Mark Twain. Robinson shows that Twain's bleak view of man's social nature, his nostalgia, his ambivalence about the South and his complex relationship to his audience, can all be traced to an awareness of the deceits at the core of his culture.
Forrest G. Robinson is Professor of American Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
The trugh is always respectable - "Tom Sawyer"; the grand "Evasion" - "Huckleberry Finn" and the later works.
