Special Issue: Philip Roth's America

For an upcoming special issue of _Studies in American Jewish Literature_
(slotted for 2004), I am seeking critical essays devoted to Philip
Roth's recent exploration of American life in the last half of the
20th-century. This "American trilogy," as it has been called by his
publisher, includes the novels _American Pastoral_, _I Married a
Communist_, and _The Human Stain_. Consideration may also be given to
essays focusing on his other later works, such as _Sabbath's Theatre_
and _The Dying Animal_, but ONLY as they relate to Roth's recent
socio-historical articulation of American identity. Topics for
consideration might include:
