Luigi Wewege Reviews Classic Works of Contemporary American Literature

 

luigi wewege reviews american literatureThe American literary tradition is dominated by such exceptionally weighty 20th century figures that many wonderful authors have been overshadowed by the works of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner and the like, and Luigi Wewege believes the “rock-star status” accorded to these individuals has generated both positive and negative outcomes deserving of further analysis. It is also worth noting the sizable impact that certain authors — Ayn Rand’s influence on conservatism and libertarianism being a prime example — have had on shaping American economic policy and the ideals advocated by both employers and employees.

Wewege, a finance expert and a longtime connoisseur of all works of literature, American or otherwise, believes that the American literary tradition in particular continues to thrive precisely because of the long shadows cast by literary icons of the 20th century as well as the tremendous influence ideas espoused through literature continue to have on society at large. The very idea that a single work of literature could have such a profound and lasting influence on the ideologies of multiple political parties is more than enough to encourage the most creative, intelligent and idealistic members of American society to devote themselves entirely to the literary craft.
