Summary "This study, the first monograph on The Graduate, explores how popular and subsequent critical reception deflected an understanding of the film’s point of view, which satirizes everything in its path--especially Benjamin and Elaine, its young "heroes." The text explores how the film offers not the happy ending some imagine, but a corrosive and satirical vision of humanity"--Provided by publisher.
