Abstract

Over fifty years since its publication, the critical consensus appears to be to understand When She Was Good (1967) as something of a curiosity in Roth’s oeuvre. But it is time for a reappraisal. This article reads the novel in relation to Roth’s discussion of what he calls ‘politicisation’ in ‘the Vietnam years, thus attempting to rehabilitate both the novel and its central character, Lucy Nelson.
