Editorial Reviews

Originally published in 1962, this is a paperbound reprint of a study that defines and evaluates the main movements in the English novel, beginning with Joyce. Karl (affiliation not cited) contends that the contemporary novel, with its restrictive, self-contained fictional worlds, is no longer "modern." His analysis focuses on the novels of Graham Greene, Elizabeth Bowen, Evelyn Waugh, George Orwell, and Joyce Cary. Coverage extends to the writings of Iris Murdoch, Anthony Powell, the "Angry Young Men," Nigel Dennis, Doris Lessing, and Angus Wilson. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
