Cormac McCarthy's significance in the field of contemporary American fiction is enormous. Harold Bloom has called him one of the greatest living American writers, and named him one of the three most important authors of the 20th century. His impact has been even greater in the 21st century. He won the American Book Award for All the Pretty Horses (1991), the Pulitzer Prize for The Road (2006), and his influence on contemporary American literature has been compared to that of Herman Melville, William Faulkner, and Ernest Hemingway, while The Guardian likened the language of The Road to that ofBeckett and Yeats. This collection of new critical perspectives on three of McCarthy's most widely studied novels - All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men and The Road - provides a wide-ranging introduction to the different interpretations of his work. Introductions to each set of essays encourage readers to see connections and contrasts between different approaches and comprehensive Further Reading will help students to take their study further.
