ABSTRACT
Presents literary criticism of the novel "Suttree" by Cormac McCarthy. It focuses on its representation of life in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is compared to the book "A Death in the Family" by James Agee, which is also set in Knoxville. Both are characterized as well-written family dramas, and their stylistic differences are emphasized. Similarities between "Suttree" and "Ulysses" by James Joyce are also discussed.
