Item description for Reinventing the Feature Story: Mythic Cycles in American Literary Journalism by Shapiro Stephanie...

Although literary journalism is now widely accepted as an integral part of all American prose literature, there has been scant examination of its underlying themes, which have remained constant even as the literature itself has evolved. By looking at literary journalism as narrative - the artifact of myth - its cultural power and history are revealed. As a vehicle of myth, literary journalism's growth corresponds to the progression of myth through its primary, romantic and consummatory stages. Each stage of literary journalism is a tool for converting readers through sensational example to the moral values and social obligations of a particular myth stage. Each stage of myth creates the need for the subsequent stage in a continual literary cycle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reinventing the Feature Story: Mythic Cycles in American Literary Journalism?

Myth and Literary Journalism  Apr 30, 2005
Are today's newspaper feature stories part of a bigger picture of American life? Can such literary journalism connect (and perhaps REconnect) us to the myths that established and underlie our heritage? Stephanie Shapiro thinks so and provides a clear tracing of three stages in feature stories' historical development. She suggests that the stages form a cycle, and she invites us to examine current feature stories with an eye to mythic cycle to enrich our view of and place in society. An exciting challenge!
