Abstract: Philip Roth's career has spanned more than 40 years, in which he has produced more than 20 books and wom almost major literary award. The Jewish-American writer's work is a search for form that takes him from social realism, through comedy and fantasy, to pseudo-confessional and a postmodern aesthetic. Paul McDonald explores each of Roth's works in turn, from his first book "Goodbye Columbus" to "The Dying Animal". He shows that although Roth writes about the human condition in often provocative and unusual ways, his treatment is witty and always based on values.Paul McDonald lectures in English and has a special interest in modern American literature.
