More About Politics and the Novel by Irving Howe; David Bromwich
 
 
 
Overview
Irving Howe s classic investigation of the role of revolutionary ideas in fiction is here reprinted in a new paperback edition. In establishing the role of the political novel and tracing its growth into the twentieth century, Mr. Howe draws his examples from Stendhal s The Red and the Black, Dostoevsky s The Possessed, Joseph Conrad s The Secret Agent, and Ivan Turgenev s Fathers and Sons. He also explains why American novels failed to integrate ideology, including Henry Adams s Democracy, Henry James s The Bostonians, and Nathaniel Hawthorne s The Blithedale Romance. His discussion of political fiction after World War II touches on Milan Kundera s The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, V. S. Naipaul s A Bend in the River, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn s The First Circle, among others. In all, Politics and the Novel offers the most enduring and authoritative view of the subject."
