Neo-Georgian Fiction : Reimagining the Eighteenth Century in the Contemporary Historical Novel, Hardback Book

Neo-Georgian Fiction : Reimagining the Eighteenth Century in the Contemporary Historical Novel Hardback

Edited by Jakub Lipski, Joanna Maciulewicz

Part of the Routledge Focus on Literature series

Hardback

Description

This book contributes to the development of contemporary historical fiction studies by analysing neo-Georgian fiction, which, unlike neo-Victorian fiction, has so far received little critical attention.

The essays included in this collection study the ways in which the selected twentieth- and twenty-first-century novels recreate the Georgian period in order to view its ideologies through the lens of such modern critical theories as performativity, post-colonialism, feminism or visual theories.

They also demonstrate the rich repertoire of subgenres of neo-Georgian fiction, ranging from biographical fiction, epistolary novels to magical realism.

The included studies of the diverse novelistic conventions used to re-contextualise the Georgian reality reflect the way we see its relevance and relation to the present and trace the indebtedness of the new forms of the contemporary novel to the traditional novelistic genres.
