John Barth is an amazingly versatile nov-elist who has attempted every imaginable fictional genre from word games to a tale told by a computer. Jac Tharpe's brilliant analysis is the first and only comprehen-sive study to date to attempt to chart Barth's philosophical, comic, and stylistic development.?Ranging through the entire corpus of Barth's work?The Floating Opera, The End of the Road, The Sot-Weed Factor, Giles Goat-Boy, Lost in the Funhouse, and Chimera?Tharpe assesses Barth's achievement as a completely intellectual yet marvelously carnal comic writer. Es-pecially valuable is his investigation of Barth's language and artistic technique. criticism and theory,genres and styles,history and criticism,humor,humor and entertainment,literature and fiction,regional and cultural,theories of humor Humor & Entertainment, Southern Illinois University Press
