But this book ends up only stating the problem, how romantic love and sexual connections frequently devolve into bitter feelings of entrapment, without literary examples of transcending this state. The End of the Novel of Love would make an excellent companion piece to The Argonauts - where Maggie Nelson explores what it means to love in an age of gender and sexual revolution, Gornick argues incisively, gorgeously, and persuasively that the terms of love have changed since the 19th century - and that this has changed the stakes of love in fiction.

In doing so, she examines a century of novels of world and comes to see that, for most writers, it is the drama of our angry and frightened selves in the presence of love that is our modern preoccupation.

This is simply one of the best books of essays I've encountered in years. Thank you, Vivian Gornick.

Essays on Willa Cather, Kate Chopin, Grace Paley and others. If there’s beauty in precision, then this is beautiful writing. Gornick has a way of stating the profound in a way that makes it seem obvious, if that makes sense: "[W]omen and men in Paley stories do not fall in love with each other, they fall in love with the desire to feel alive" (127); AND "Love . . . , like food or air, is necessary but insufficient: it cannot do for us what we must do for ourselves" (162). Really thoughtful and heartfelt readings here of a handful of late-nineteenth & twentieth century authors. (Including a chapter entitled “Tenderhearted Men,” on Carver, Ford, Dubus)

This is a good book, not her best. Read her biography of her mother. That is a great book. Writing about your parents is rarely successful, this is the great book.

Vivian Gornick is like the best English professor you ever had--or never had. Her short, cogent essays on women writers and female literary characters will send you back to a rereading of Kate Chopin, Willa Cather, Jean Rhys and others. Vivian Gornick explores the lack of options and choices for women in the past--what was there beyond love and marriage?--and the failure of this thinking for women in the present day, both in life and in literature. She is a feminist who writes without jargon or any academic pretentiousness. I recommend this as literary criticism of the highest order.

The essays in this small book on literature, women, and writing are short and simply written, and yet full of the excitement of thought and the importance of literature to our psyches. Gornick made me want (and plan) to read or re-read the books she talks about.
This is simply one of the best books of essays I've encountered in years. Thank you, Vivian Gornick.

This book is poorly written and oddly organized. If you absolutely must read or browse this book, visit your local library. I learned more in my high school class reading literary criticism; Gornick may be a good writer in other areas, but English Lit is not her forte. This book was the first thing I have ever returned to Amazon, which is disappointing, considering it was a gift.

Vivan Gornick's writing as always, insightful, honest, down-to-earty, exciting.
