By Sidney Finkelstein
After a dialogue of the philosophical background—Kierkegaard to Heidegger—the writer examines the existentialist concept of Camus and Sartre, as it applies rather to the challenge of social accountability. With many illuminating comparisons in the realm of worldwide literature, he then proceeds to hint the impression of alienation in American letters due to the fact global conflict I, and its relation to the existentialist resolution. between these mentioned are O’Neill, Fitzgerald, Eliot, Faulkner, Dos Passos, Henry Miller, Styron, Salinger, Albee, Updike, Purdy, Bellow, Mailer and Baldwin. The first of its sort, the publication presents a provocative and considerate feedback of modern American literature.
