The Six Gun Mystique Sequel
by John G. Cawelti

The Six-Gun Mystique Sequel is a revised and considerably expaned edition of The Six-Gun Mystique, a pioneering study of the Western as a popular genre. In this expanded version, Cawelti revises his analysis of the structural characteristics of the Western novel and film, synthesizing much of the rich discussions of the Western genre that has appeared since the original's publication. To this structural analysis he adds a new account of the genre's history and its relationship to the myths of the West which have played such an influential role in American history. The Six Gun Mystique Sequel concludes with an exploration of the continuing influence of Western themes and symbols on the many aspects of postmodern American culture, and an assessment of the critical tradition which has developed around the Western genre. The appendices of the book are also revised and expanded to include useful lists of the most important Western novels and films, as well as the best critical and historical studies of different aspects of the genre. About the Author: John G. Cawelti is a professor of English at the University of Kentucky. He is well known as a pioneering scholar of popular culture and had published many books and articles on popular genres as well as other aspects of American literature and culture.
