The overall aim of this book is the application of stylistic theories and frameworks to literary texts for a deeper level of interpretation. For this purpose the author conducted an analysis based upon the concepts of ‘polyphony’ and ‘focalization’ of three novels from different literary periods commonly labeled ‘Pre-modernism’, ‘Modernism’, and ‘Postmodernism’, namely, George Eliot’s Middlemarch (1871-2), Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo (1904), and Saul Bellow’s Herzog (1964). Inspired by the work of Russian linguist-philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin the author attempts to clarify stylistically how polyphony is textualized in each novel and how each mode of polyphony reflects less parochial literary and cultural trends.
