Scandalous fictions : the 20th century novel in the public sphere

大学図書館所蔵 件 / 1



Includes bibliographical references and index



This study re-examines the twentieth-century novel as a form shaped by its problematic, often scandalous relation to the public sphere. Discussing ten texts against the challenges of their milieus, it considers twentieth-century fiction as a tradition of transgression, perennially caught between license and licentiousness, erudition and sedition.
