Studies in Modern and Contemporary Fiction: Web-Based Casebooks


Modern and contemporary novels that participate in the tradition of formal and stylistic experimentation seek to challenge readers. But sometimes their challenges can be overwhelming for readers, especially those whose reading experiences have been shaped by the tenets of literary realism. The casebooks here serve as a resource for readers-teachers and students, especially-who desire some guidance in engaging these novels. Each casebook contains an introduction by the casebook editor which offers an overview of the novel, its place in the author’s oeuvre, and its critical reception. The other four essays offer different approaches to the novel and different interpretive strategies with which to understand it. There is also a bibliography of the most important critical work on the novel. The purpose of this series is to open up avenues for exploring each novel and to open up a dialogue of ideas among our contributors and each new reader.

We are currently working to provide downloadable PDFs of all Casebooks. in the meantime, read individual articles HERE.
