The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2013 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:Melody Graulich, Professor of English and American Studies
Graulich, Melody & Witschi, Nicolas S. (Eds.). 2013. Dirty Words in "Deadwood": Literature and the Postwestern. Lincoln, NE: University of Nebraska Press.
Dirty Words in "Deadwood" showcases literary analyses of the Deadwood television series by leading western American literary critics. Whereas previous reaction to the series has largely addressed the question of historical accuracy rather than intertextuality or literary complexity, Melody Graulich and Nicolas S. Witschi's edited volume brings a much-needed perspective to Deadwood's representation of the frontier West.
