Opening with an essay on Thomas Mann, the fall, the transcendent, and the imprisoning nature of language, this general issue of Mosaic also offers essays on the unsettled and uncanny narcissism of Frederick Philip Grove; the travelogue of Anna Johnson’s Canadian aesthetic experience; a political re-evaluation of Andrew Marvell’s “A Poem upon the Death of O. C.”; D.H. Lawrence’s literary love affairs with Sicily; the interlocking structures of capitalism, literature, and cognition; a psychoanalytic exploration of mother-daughter bonding in Nathaniel Hawthorne; and a French essay on the similar rhetorical and stylistic craft of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Knut Hamsun.
