Résumé

This first book-length study on the black humor in Raymond Carver's work includes valuable interpretations of Carver's aesthetics as well as the psycho-social implications of his short fiction. The presence of an indeterminate "menace" in the oppressive situations of black humor in Carver – as compared to a European tradition of existentialist writing and his American predecessors including Twain, Heller, Barth and others – is mitigated through humor so it is not dominant.
As a result, a subtle promise emerges in the characters' lives.
