In this volume, first published in 1947, Pulitzer Prize winning author Van Wyck Brooks gives a superb recreation of a segment of American literary history, namely the period from approximately the 1840’s through to the 1890’s. Those were the days of Melville, Whitman, Mark Twain, Lanier, Bret Harte, Audubon, John Muir and a host of other major and minor writers. No other American critic quite possesses Brooks’ gift for making you see and feel and experience the life and times of these literary men and women. And the balanced critical evaluation that gives this book its statute is clothed in such vigorous and beautiful writing that the reader is unaware of the lifetime of research and study encompassed in this volume. Aside from the critical value, the narrative skill and the many beautiful prose passages, in The Times of Melville and Whitman Brooks gives the reader a vivid historical picture of what life was like in the last half of the nineteenth century. It is this ability to recreate the social background of the times that gives such richness to Brooks’ criticism. He has again made a major contribution to American letters with a book that is a real work of art—vigorous, balanced, erudite, and a pleasure to read.

Making Mockery explores the dynamics of comic mockery and satire in Greek and Roman poetry, and argues that poets working with such material composed in accordance with shared generic principles and literary protocols. It encourages a synoptic, synchronic view of such poetry, from archaic iambus through Roman satire, and argues that if we can appreciate the abstract poetics of mockery that governs individual poets in such genres, we can we better understand how such poetry functioned in its own historical moment. Rosen examines in particular the various strategies deployed by ancient satirical poets to enlist the sympathies of a putative audience, convince them of the justice of their indignation and the legitimacy of their personal attacks. The mocking satirist at the height of his power remains elusive and paradoxical--a figure of self-constructed abjection, yet arrogant and sarcastic at the same time; a figure whose speech can be self-righteous one moment, but scandalous the next; who will insist on the "reality" of his poetry, but make it clear that this reality is always mediated by an inescapable movement towards fictionality. While scholars have often, in principle, acknowledged the force of irony, persona-construction and other such devices by which satirists destabilize their claims, very often in practice--especially when considering individual satirists in isolation from others--they too succumb to the satirist's invitation to take what he says at face value. Despite the sophisticated critical tools they may bring to bear on satirical texts, therefore, classicists still tend to treat such poets ultimately as monochromatically indignant, vindictive individuals on a genuine self-righteous mission. This study, however, argues that that a far subtler analysis of the aggressive, poeticized subject in Classical antiquity--its target, and its audience--is called for.
