[EAN: 9780807129425], Neubuch, [PU: Louisiana State Univ Pr], Literary Criticism|American|General, Literary Criticism|General, Biography & Autobiography|Political, Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: An impressive study of six reincarnations of Huey Long as a fictional character. The controversial, almost mythic Louisiana politician Huey P. Long inspired not just one but six American novels, published between 1934 and 1946. And he continues to resonate in American cultural memory, appearing in a 1995 work of historical fiction. The Kingfish in Fiction offers the first study of all six "Hueys-who-aren't-Hueys" as they strut and bluster their way across the literary page, each character telling his own particular story, each towing a different authorial agenda. Keith Perry carefully dissects the intertwining of documented history and artistic invention in Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here, Hamilton Basso's Cinnamon Seed and Sun in Capricorn, John Dos Passos's Number One, Adria Locke Langley's A Lion is in the Streets, and Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men. Perry explains that Lewis cast his version of the Kingfish as a totalitarian menace, a sort of homegrown Hitler. Basso created twoLong characters, each a rabble-rousing affront to what remained of the Old South order. To warn readers of the dangers hidden in the politician-constituent contract, Dos Passos transformed Long into a shameless manipulator of the gullible American masses. Langley's rendition suffers complete condemnation by its creator for personal as well as public transgressions. Warren's spell-binding Willie Stark, almost as much philosopher as politician, ironically bears the least resemblance to Long though for almost six decades Stark has been Long's best-known fictional embodiment. Exploring how and why these five authors turned one politician into six fictional characters leads Perry to conclude thatHuey P. Long's lasting impression may well be a composite of both historical and imaginative interpretation.
