Unit 7: No Country for Old Men

    Cormac McCarthy is one of America’s foremost living writers. Time will tell if he endures the way that Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare have, but certainly his examination of social and personal violence in No Country for Old Men is a serious attempt to examine this issue. The book was made into a major Hollywood film a few years ago, and Joel and Ethan Coen's adaptation of McCarthy's novel won four Academy Awards, including best picture and best director. 
    There are issues other than violence that arise in this novel, such as masculine identity, personal integrity, and human compassion in the face of sociopathic brutality. Once again, there is very little time to waste in this study, and students are advised to keep up with their reading on a daily basis. There is an adequate student site at GradeSaver on the book and a yearly journal is available on Jstor on the author. I have placed a number of articles from Jstor that will promote a deeper study and understanding of the novel in the file section below.
