Understanding what variables truly establish and erode literary reputations is a tricky and sometimes hopeless endeavor, especially when the context is confined to the space of a given nation or time. Having perused Green’s output and nearly three-quarters of a century of critical reaction to it, the somewhat dizzy observer wonders if Green’s long writing career very well may have worked against his American reputation–if, in practicing his art for so long and across the successive loose movements of late realism, modernism, and postmodernism, he produced a collective body of books not readily adaptable to any one specific period or aesthetic category.
