Contents Introduction: listening. -- A whale, an heiress, and a southern demigod: three symbolic Americas. -- Benjy Compson, Jake Barnes, and Nick Carraway: replication in three "innocent" American narrators of the 1920s. -- The obverse relation: some western flights eastward (in literature and film). -- The black/white continuum: some recent examples in Bellow, Malamud, and Updike. -- Three applications: Truth's ragged edges: Melville's loyalties in Billy Budd -- the commitment of form in the digressions. "The birthplace": James's Fable for critics? Faulkner's revolt against the 1920s: parody and transcendence, continuation and innovation. -- Afterword: Knower, doer, and sayer -- the James family view of Emerson.
