Writing London - Volume 2 : Materiality, Memory, Spectrality addresses the poetics of urban representation through theoretically informed close readings of key literary texts concerning London from the fin-de-si├Ęcle to the present day. Considering the city as both temporal and material space, chapters offer detailed considerations of Elizabeth Bowen, Maureen Duffy, Peter Ackroyd, and Iain Sinclair, as exemplary figures in the literary representation of London. The volume examines how these writers transform the act of narrative through an open response to the various manifestations of the city, doing so through attention to the role of cultural memory, the materiality of the city, and the effects of the city's past as it haunts the act of urban narrative. .
