Bibliography. Index. From the rear cover: "'Rainwater's book finds its targets and explodes much if not most of the nonsense that has been written about Native American novels and, by extension, Native American literature, art, dance, drama, and tradition. Rainwater refocuses attention on the evolution of and diversity among Native writers. Her discussion is a sophisticated, well-researched, and much needed addition to the field.' -- Paula Gunn Allen, University of California, Los Angeles. Since the 1968 publication of N. Scott Momaday's HOUSE MADE OF DAWN, a new generation of Native American storytellers has chosen writing over oral traditions. While these works have found an audience by observing many of the conventions of the mainstream novel, Native American written narrative has emerged as something distinct from the postmodern novel with which it is often compared. In DREAMS OF FIERY STARS, Catherine Rainwater examines the novels of writers such as Momaday, Linda Hogan, Leslie Marmon Silko, Gerald Vizenor, and Louise Erdrich and contends that the very act of writing narrative imposes constraints upon these authors that are foreign to Native American tradition. Their works amount to a break with -- and a transformation of -- American Indian storytelling. Catherine Rainwater is Associate Professor of English at St. Edward's University. She is coeditor with William J. Scheick of CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN WOMEN WRITERS: NARRATIVE STRATEGIES." . First Printing of the First Edition. Soft Cover.
