9781403991461: Contemporary Fiction and the Uses of Theory: The Novel from Structuralism to Postmodernism

This topical study examines the 'novelizations' of radical literary theory in the work of A.S. Byatt, Angela Carter, Umberto Eco, John Fowles, Richard Powers and many other leading novelists. It offers a comprehensive analysis of the 'post-theoretical novel', and traces an alternative history of the 'theory revolution' in recent literary fiction.

About the Author:

MICHAEL GREANEY is Lecturer in English at Lancaster University, UK. He is the author of Conrad, Language and Narrative (2002).

Review:

'[This] is an authoritative but accessible account of the inter-relationships between literary theory and the culture of fiction from the nineteen-seventies to the present day. Covering many of the landmark novels of the period, Michael Greaney also ranges over less familiar texts, by writers better known for their theoretical work such as Norman Holland and Julia Kristeva. With its refreshing and distinctive approach to the field, the book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students of the contemporary novel, as well as to lecturers and researchers in post- war literature.' - Dr. Jago Morrison, University of Chichester, UK
