About the Book

American cultural historian, literary and social critic and college professor Paul Fussell (1924–2012) wrote and edited 21 books on a wide variety of topics, ranging from 18th century British literature to works on World War II to sardonic takes on American culture. This book offers a thorough introduction to his writings and thought, constructing an argument for Fussell’s continued importance and relevancy. Covering Fussell’s traumatic experience in World War II and the important influence it had on his life and outlook, this intellectual biography puts in context Fussell’s perspectives on ethics, the human experience and literature as an evaluative and critical endeavor.
