Jac Tharpe’s brilliant analysis is the first and only comprehen­sive study to date to attempt to chart Barth’s philosophical, comic, and stylistic development.Ranging through the entire corpus of Barth’s work—The Floating Opera, The End of the Road, The Sot-Weed Factor, Giles Goat-Boy, Lost in the Funhouse, and Chimera—Tharpe assesses Barth’s achievement as a completely intellectual yet marvelously carnal comic writer. Es­pecially valuable is his investigation of Barth’s language and artistic technique.
