Abstract

According to William Van O’Connor, the grotesque as a literary character in American literature has become a prevalent form of expressing the nature of modern man. O’Connor states that American authors are “preoccupied with the irrational, the unpredictable, the bizarre, with the grotesque…,” and that they present man in an inflexible social order.
