Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The authors contend that these four novelists assail the conventional realistic novel with a salvational drama that uses its own virtue to combat the virtue of moral mediation. In the same way, the sacred chapters of these dramas protest their authors' inconsolable disappointment with the constant betrayal of spirit in the world. Annotation c.
