About this product
- DescriptionMetafictionalist and literary critic Ronald Sukenick has written that the truth of the page is that 'there's a writer sitting there writing the page ...' and the reader 'is forced to recognize the reality of the reading situation as the writer points to the reality of the writing situation, and the work, instead of allowing him to escape the truth of his own life, keeps returning him to it but, one hopes, with his own imagination activated and revitalized.' Such is the point of departure for velist-critic Axelrod's The Poetics of Novels which deals with the fundamentals of vel-writing and the execution of such, and though it engages specific tions of literary and cultural theory, it privileges the architectonics of the texts themselves as it crosses boundaries of both time and culture in dealing with vels as diverse as Cervantes' Don Quixote, Clarice Lispector's Hour of the Star and Samuel Beckett's Company.
