Ring Lardner and the Other

Douglas Robinson


Ring Lardner was one of the most popular figures of the early twentieth century—newspaper columnist, sports writer, short-story writer, and personality—yet he has received little attention from scholars. This new book examines the writings of a critically neglected American writer; it also uses Lardner as the basis for a theoretical inquiry into language and literature, and a study of men and masculinity at the turn of the century.

Keywords: Ring Lardner, language, literature, masculinity, sports writing, columnists, short stories, personality
