In his blistering new novel, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of his famed Border Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law–in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell–can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers–in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives–McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines. No Country for Old Men is a triumph. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Adapted by the Coen Brothers into an Academy Award winning film, No Country For Old Men is a dark and suspenseful novel from Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road. Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice - leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

In 2005, Cormac McCarthy's novel, No Country for Old Men, was published to wide acclaim, and in 2007, Ethan and Joel Coen brought their adaptation of McCarthy's novel to the screen. The film earned praise from critics worldwide and was honored with four Academy Awards', including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. In No Country for Old Men: From Novel to Film, scholars offer varied approaches to both the novel and the award-winning film. Beginning with several essays dedicated entirely to the novel and its place within the McCarthy canon, the anthology offers subsequent essays focusing on the film, the adaptation process, and the Coen Brothers more broadly. The book also features an interview with the Coen brothers' long-time cinematographer Roger Deakins. This entertaining and enriching book for readers interested in the Coen Brothers' films and in McCarthy's fiction is an important contribution to both literature and film studies.

Once a country of emigration and diaspora, in the 1990s Ireland began to attract immigration from other parts of the world: a new citizenry. By the first decade of the twenty-first century, the ratio between GDP and population placed Ireland among the wealthiest nations in the world. The Peace Agreements of the mid-1990s and the advent of power-sharing in Northern Ireland have enabled Ireland's story to change still further. No longer locked into troubles from the past, the Celtic Tiger can now leap in new directions. These shifts in culture have given Irish literature the opportunity to look afresh at its own past and, thereby, new perspectives have also opened for Irish Studies. The contributors to this volume explore these new openings; the essays examine writings from both now and the past in the new frames afforded by new times.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Freiburg, course: Novel / Film Adaptation, language: English, abstract: There is no need to explain that No Country for Old Men, published in 2005 by Cormac McCarthy - as well as the eponymous movie by the Coen brothers (2007) - are extravagant works in terms of style as well as in their philosophical conceptions. Since both were only recently released there is still very few secondary literature on the complexity of McCarthy's ideas and concepts of human - or mainly American - culture. Yet they have aroused a good deal of discussions and diverse receptions not only in literary circles but also (and this is mainly for the movie) within the public. Not only that McCarthy plays with different genres in one work, confusing the readers expectations and habitual ways of reading in general, but he also seems to deconstruct everything we thought to believe about society, morality, rules of living and fate. With Anton Chigurh McCarthy introduces a totally unknown, a new type of character, who finally makes all attempts of moral or philosophical interpretations fade with the wind, just walking down the road - alive.

This book offers an original perspective on the narrative in the film and the novel No Country for Old Men, it also gives a good account on the issue of fidelity that plays an important role in the analysis of the relationship between the film adaptation and its source text, observing whether the Coens have not eradicated the novel’s complex and allegorical essence. The narrative analysis in the book as well involves an observation of the narrator’s point-of-view and its reliability. Besides, the book undeniably proves that the relation of narrative time and narrative space is vital in the comparison of the film adapatation and its source text. The contents of the book may serve as a valuable source for aspiring students and researchers in the area of literary and film studies.

This thesis examines the performance of masculinities in the borderland films No Country for Old Men and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, and considers how gendered and geo-political boundaries intersect in these contemporary Westerns. These films act as sites of destabilized manhood in using the conventions of the Western genre to challenge and subvert the tropes of Western masculinity, and in this way respond to the themes of crisis and negotiation found within the field of Masculinity Studies. In analyzing the ways that the male protagonists are constructed and deconstructed through character, embodiment, and plot line, I discuss how the characters that operate outside of bounded systems are used to displace power from normative models of masculinity.
