Mr. Handy examines the terms and methods of the New Critics approach to poetry, and by application of this critical method to six modÂern works demonstrates the vitality of the formalistic method in enabling the reader to achieve a new level of awareness of the authorâs ideas and emotions. The six works of fiction discussed are: Joyce, ÂThe Deadâ; Dreiser, Sister Carrie; Faulkner, As I Lay Dying; Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea; Malamud, The Fixer; and Bellow, Seize the Day.
