9780813213507: Proust, Mann, Joyce in the Modernist Context

This work centres on three writers whose prose fictions became exemplary of the modernist drive to reconstitute a vision of life with universal reach. Chapters treating the authors' themes and traits are bracketed by chapters establishing the cultural continuum in which they worked.
