Abstract

abstract:

Cormac McCarthy’s No Country for Old Men (2005) depicts a 1980s Texas border town as an Anglo-American community attacked by Mexicans, whose presence McCarthy indicates mainly through drugs and violence. By analyzing McCarthy’s archival drafts and revisions, and contextualizing the representation of Mexicans in the post-9/11 southern border reality, I reveal how the novel, composed and published between 2003 and 2005, embodies a 9/11 subtext.
