Guerard, Albert Joseph

Tagged: Author

(1914-2000) US critic and author, an influential academic scholar who taught at Amherst College, Harvard University and Stanford University. He was long an advocate of US experimentalist fiction. His sf novel Night Journey (1950) depicts an idealistic soldier against the background of a useless Near-Future European Future War. The loss of his illusions is rendered with psychological acuity, though the narrative itself is dithery. [JC]
