what is the following?
between the years 1960 and 1970 a new litter of writers arose that, more than forming a group in common with some defined ideas (like the beat generation) they were located in previous currents, renewing them with their own contributions. some of these are what the critic harold bloom considers the most important american novelists of his time: philip roth, cormac mccarthy, thomas pynchon, don delillo.
some american writers also reflected the disappointment that followed the war. the stories and novels of f. scott fitzgerald (1896 - 1940) capture the defiant, restless and thirsting pleasure disposition of the 1920s. the themes addressed by fitzgerald, collected in an intense way in the great gatsby (1926), represent the trend to the failure and disappointment of youthful golden dreams. another writer who treated similar subjects is john dos passos (1896 - 1970) who in novels like manhattan transfer (1925) or the usa trilogy (1930 - 1936) shows the reality of the working classes and the failure of their expectations.
