    Bucknell University Press 2014; US$ 84.99

  • Graham Greeneby Robert Hoskins

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 120.00

    This study reveals Greene in a dual role as author, one who projects literary experience into his view of life and subsequently projects both his experience and its "literary" interpretation into his fiction; and it defines two phases of Greenes novels through the changing relationship between writer and protagonists. The first phase progresses from... more...

  • James Joyce and the Language of Historyby Robert Spoo

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 109.99

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 49.99

    With Joyce, Proust, and Faulkner in mind, we have come to understand the novel as a form with intimate ties to the impulses and processes of memory. This study contends that this common perception is an anachronism that distorts our view of the novel. Based on an investigation of representative novels, Amnesiac Selves shows that the Victorian novel... more...
