About this title


The genesis of the novel, argues Michael McKeon, lies in the great upheavals of secularization and reform that transformed early modern Europe. Now in paperback, "The Origins of the English Novel" combines historical analysis and readings of extraordinarily diverse texts to reconceive the foundations of the dominant genre of the modern era.

From the Publisher:

"This book is a formidable attempt to articulate issues of almost imponderable centrality for modern life and literature. McKeon proposes with quite breathtaking ambition and considerable intellectual flourish to redefine the novel's key role in those immense cultural transformations that produce the modern world."—Studies in the Novel

"One of the most rigorous and penetrating books I have read—and one of the most widely researched, in its coverage of texts, theory, and historical developments."—Vincent Newey, London Review of Books
