The Realist Novel


Product Description:
From Pride and Prejudice to The Color Purple, the English novel has transcended generations as one of the most enduring literary forms. The Realist Novel provides a readable and straightforward guide to analyzing this distinct and popular genre.

Utilizing such well-known works as Frankenstein, Great Expectations, and Fathers and Sons, this book shows how writers utilized this format to reach very different goals. While Jane Austen and Charles Dickens used the realist novel to tell profoundly moral tales in a popular way, Mary Shelley used realism to render a story of myth and horror.

The Realist Novel is one of the first books in the Approaching Literature series which is designed to offer a range of different but current appoaches to the study of literature.
