Investigating Gass's texts is a complex rescue mission meant to reclaim reality's subtlety and multifariousness, in the most positive sense of these Page 21 words. Even though he is a consummate stylist, Gass still redeems his work from the narrowness of style for style's sake. Admittedly, we have encountered many contemporary critics who, in their effusions over postrealist fiction, prescribe the use of language for no end other than displaying its inherent charms. " 46 The occasion for this remark was his review of Omensetter's Luck, a novel which Gilman names "the most important work of fiction by an American in this literary generation,"47 yet, in his opinion, its failing is in its vestigial attachments to literary convention: the trappings of traditional setting, character, and narrative line which he would reserve for the fainthearted and the hopelessly reactionary among us.
49 And, so the presumption goes, in the sphere of uninterrupted consciousness can be found relief from inhibition. But this is hardly an accurate appraisal of Gass's fictions. Autonomy is no great victory for Furber, Fender, or any of the other protagonists. On the contrary, their retreats are consistently portrayed as stifling, no matter what the attractions may be. Withdrawal is therefore unsuitable, psychologically as well as politically and socially. Gass himself recognizes that creative activity must ultimately lead to a repossession of the world and that the consolation of language must also attempt a reestablishment of connections if it is to prove viable on any grounds.
