Sandra Newman, The Western Lit Survival Kit: An Irreverent Guide to the Classics, From Homer to Faulkner

    588 entries: 424 monographical, 164 otherwise
    Unranked—arranged chronologically within topical chapters

    This book quickly traverses the entirety of Western literature (defined in the laziest way possible) largely for the sake of crafting persistent awkward maybe-jokes. The author's selection of books suggests considerable breadth of knowledge, hidden behind a misguided attempt to appeal to... someone—one must ask Newman and her editors and publicists who they intended to reach. Even the most skeptical of, say, students struggling though a required English course or an adult wanting a modicum of familiarity with European and North American literary history would likely leave this book not wanting to read the writers discussed therein. Newman mocks many of the authors discussed, and works that are commonly considered canonical are discussed or at least listed next to minor and insignificant works, the primary criterion apparently being that they be written by one of the individuals that Newman and co. are convinced have "name recognition." The overall impression one gets is that in Newman's over-educated mileu, "western lit," once the source of extraordinary feats of knowledge and care, and the spark of much controversy, is now merely another source of cheap entertainment.

    One may initially hope that, once past her comedic routine and persistent repetition of every cliche about certain periods of history or literary movements one would ever want to remember, Newman at least provides quick overviews of a great deal of fine literature and brief summaries of the major works by the authors discussed. But her efforts at concisely capturing the essence of various literary movements or broad trends of her own design (such as Nice Realism and Unwelcome Realism) are not insightful, and at times not explained at all. And unfortunately the cliches and the jokes completely ruin the text. Look to the first page of the book, no less: persons who learn Ancient Greek apparently are "a disturbing asexual presence." Another example: "The detached elegance of his mind also makes us feel that Flaubert inhabits a purer sphere, until we remember that he lived with his mother, when he wasn't at a brothel getting icky diseases."

    Other aspects suggest sloppiness in the book's construction, most of all in that Newman rates the works on three different scales of 0 to 10. Is that not supposed to be 1 to 10? Those three areas are Importance, Accessibility, and Fun. Accessibility... one would think is easy to define; no surprise, James Joyce's Ulysses gets a 1. But every Rudyard Kipling work mentioned gets a 0, despite her noting that some of them are now classed as children's literature. She does not explain this apparent discrepancy. Is it a typo? The introduction to the Twentieth-Century chapter claims that only "authors who have been properly canonized" are discussed, though obviously date is another criterion, since the book stops at, roughly, the Second World War. "Proper canonization" is not explained anyway.

    Newman's view of the canon is at least not excessively present-minded: included are farther-past authors once commonly taught but now obscure, and authors mostly important for understanding the history of literature and publishing. The advantages of her approach are, first, the sections actually providing relevant historical background, such as that on Grub Street or Restoration Drama, where genuine interest in the subject matter peeps out behind Newman's shroud of sarcasm (in her six paragraphs on Grub Street, she only attempts one joke); and, second, the reader getting a broader view of famous authors. Knowing that the authors so often spoken of as geniuses also wrote unremarkable early novels (Dostoevsky) or by-the-numbers political journalism (Defoe) helps place literature in its proper place: the authors' daily lives, careers, and slowly-developing artistry. This approach justifies the inclusion of works not considered by Newman to be important or reading-worthy... until, that is, her emphasis on personality traits comes back to annoy us.

    As with other lists-as-books, works other than those formally listed are included. In this case, the formal list consists of those works listed in tables throughout the book with their three scores in columns to the right. Given that some of these works do not exactly receive a "thumbs up" from Newman and she rates some of the works not in those tables quite highly, we have no rule by which to exclude works mentioned in text; all are included. The list's organization reflects the book's sequence of chapters as follows: 'Greece: Cradle of Greek Civilization'; 'Rome: When the World Was Ruled by Italians'; 'The Middle Ages and Points Between'; 'The Renaissance: Back to the Future'; 'William "Look at Me, I Get My Own Chapter" Shakespeare'; 'Here Come the Puritans: Parade, Meet Rain'; 'France and England in the Seventeenth Century: The Shallows'; 'The Age of Reason: When People Wised Up and Started Believing What We Believe'; 'The Romantics: The Author as (the Author's) Hero'; 'We Also Begin to Have Americans'; 'Nice Realism': 'The Novel Novel'; 'Unwelcome Realism: The French and the Russians Team Up to Depress Mankind'; 'The Messy Twentieth: Finally Over'.
