About this product
- DescriptionDame Muriel Spark-the highly acclaimed Scottish writer-published over twenty vels and more than a dozen short-story collections from the late 1950s until her death in 2006. Two of her vels, The Public Image and Loitering with Intent, were short-listed for the Booker Prize, and ather, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, was made into an Academy Award-winning movie. David Herman here assembles an international group of scholars to contexualize and analyze Spark's works, highlighting the continuing relevance of her texts in the twenty-first century. With three new essays and a reworked introduction by the editor, this volume expands a special issue of Modern Fiction Studies dedicated to Spark and her writings. Organized thematically into three parts, the volume includes essays that consider Spark as both Scottish and world author, situate Spark in the broader contexts of postwar culture, and offer exemplary readings of specific works from various critical perspectives. A resource for students and scholars alike, this volume provides information about Spark's oeuvre while also featuring current, theoretically informed interpretations of individual texts.
- Author BiographyDavid Herman is a professor of English at the Ohio State University. He has published widely on narrative theory, modern and postmodern fiction, and storytelling across media.
