About this product
- DescriptionDreams, Nightmares and Empty Signifiers is the first study of contemporary literary representations of one of the most iconic topoi in English literature and culture - the country house. The book analyses nine contemporary vels, including Kazuo Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day, Ian McEwan's Atonement, Sarah Waters' The Little Stranger and Alan Hollinghurst's The Stranger's Child, by situating them in a broader context of marial literary tradition. Analysing the different traditions of the vel of manners, gothic fiction and postmodern metafiction, the book identifies three principal variants of the marial topos, which expound the country house as the locus of varied, often contradictory meanings.
