Abstract of Publisher

With this study, Carina Staudte closes a gap in critical analysis about Philip Roth. She explores the important element of sport in Roth’s America, and how athleticism translates into powerful masculinities. Thus, this study not only contributes to the studies of sports in literature, but also explores questions of gender. Verlagsangabe
