Abstract

Cormac McCarthy's dystopic vision of a father and son's fraught journey to an unknown destination earned him the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2007. McCarthy peoples his bleak landscapes with individuals forced to renegotiate their own moral borders. The sparsity of the author's style creates a lyric tension with the bleak imagery and graphic realities that are part of this postapocalyptic world. In this new volume, critical excerpts explore this contemporary classic, and features include an annotated bibliography, an index, a list of characters from the work, and extensive summary and analysis, making this entry in the Bloom's Guides series a valuable addition.
