Ring Lardner and the Other

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the story of “Who Dealt?,” providing an antithetical reading of Tom Cannon's asceticism. What is most characteristic about the critical readings of “Who Dealt?” is in fact a kind of serene consensus—a consensus whose serenity is largely maintained by its ideological normativeness, its grounding in “normal” masculine contempt for feminine discourse, and “normal” upper-middle-class contempt for lower-middle-class discourse.

Keywords:   Who Dealt, stories, antithetical reading, asceticism
