    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 35.00 US$ 31.85

    Formalist criticism of the modern novel has concentrated on its spatial aspects. Patricia Tobin focuses, instead, on the modern novel's temporal structure.

  • Realism/Anti-Realism in 20th-Century Literature.by Christine Baron; Manfred Engel

    Editions Rodopi 2010; US$ 63.45

    Modernist literature and art have been dominated by a disinterest in mere empirical and social reality and a discontent with habitualized perception and the world-view of convention, reason, and pragmatism.
