American Pastoral Pdf
American Pastoral is a Philip Roth novel published in 1997 concerning Seymour “Swede” Levov, a successful Jewish American businessman and former high school star athlete from Newark, New Jersey. Levov’s happy and conventional upper-middle-class life is ruined by the domestic social and political turmoil of the 1960s during the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson, which in the novel is described as a manifestation of the “indigenous American berserk”.
American Pastoral Summary
Seymour Irving Levov is born and raised in the Weequahic section of Newark, New Jersey, in 1927 as the elder son of a successful Jewish American glove manufacturer, Lou Levov, and his wife Sylvia. Called “the Swede” because of his anomalous blond hair, blue eyes, and Nordic good looks, Seymour is a star athlete in high school; a two-year veteran of the Marine Corps; and the narrator Nathan Zuckerman’s idol and hero. Zuckerman and Seymour’s younger brother, Jerry—who grows into a curmudgeonly, irascible heart surgeon with little empathy for the Swede—are schoolmates and close friends. The Swede eventually takes over his father’s glove factory and marries Dawn Dwyer, a former beauty queen from nearby Elizabeth, whom he met in college.
