The introduction to New Perspectives on Marilynne Robinson highlights the new and varied contemporary and critical contexts in which this noted author might be read. Introducing how we might read Robinson as an author of the ‘now’, the editors discuss her fiction’s reimagining of rural histories through constructions of race, gender, and the failures of white allyship, and her nonfiction’s focus on the conservative politics of the neoliberal university, nuclear power and the governmental dumping of nuclear waste, issues of American democracy and the presidencies of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, and the state of political thought in the contemporary United States.
