Overview

Political Fiction and the American Self by John Whalen-bridge

Examining the works of authors ranging from Herman Melville to Margaret Atwood, John Whalen-Bridge shows that some books are more political than others, that some political novelists are more skillful than others, and that readers must allow for basic working distinctions between politics and aesthetics if we are to make useful judgments about which political novels to read, and why.
