John Cheever -- Criticism and interpretation
Literary criticism dealing with John Cheever focuses on the social implications of Cheever's description of suburban America. The purpose of this thesis is to propose a new approach to Cheever's short stories, and to apply the concepts developed by French literary critics Jacques Derrida and Roland Barthes to thirteen short stories by Cheever.
