About this product
- DescriptionThis book argues that the history of literary modernism is inextricably connected with naturalism. Simon Joyce traces a complex response among aesthetes to the work of Emile Zola at the turn of the century, recovering naturalism's assumed compatibility with impressionism as a central cause of their ambivalence. Highlighting a little-studied strain of reflexive naturalism in which Zola's mode of analytical observation is turned upon the authors themselves, Joyce suggests that the confluence of naturalism and impressionism formed the precondition for so-called stream-of-consciousness writing. This style served to influence t only the work of canical modernists such as Joyce and Woolf, but also that of lesser-kwn writers such as George Moore, Sarah Grand, and George Egerton.
- Author BiographySimon Joyce is the Margaret Hamilton Professor of English at the College of William and Mary, Virginia. His previous books include Capital Offenses: Geographies of Class and Crime in Victorian London (2003) and The Victorians in the Rearview Mirror (2007).
