Críticas:


"A thoughtful book."--Hermione Lee, The New York Review of Books


"Absorbing.... Nation and Novel combines a huge range of materials with a remarkably steady focus. It is an erudite, judicious study.... The book is crammed with perceptive passages--on 18th-century footpads, the Book of Job, Disraeli as political novelist, Jane Austen as hard-headed materialist, the politics of marriage, Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time as Arthurian allegory. Its lucid, level-headed prose makes it just the right kind of text for students."--Terry Eagleton, The Guardian

"The strength of this study is in its synthesis of material...Parrinder surveys the work of over two hundred novelists, and provides a useful explication of how the English nation-state has been reflected in the novel, and how the act of reading has been shaped by novelistic discourse." --DickensQuarterly
