Pre- and post-publication itineraries of the contemporary novel in English

Colloques et Revues - 352 pages - 170x240

ISBN : 9782748335101


The articles in this volume follow the itineraries or trajectories of the contemporary novel in English, looking thoroughly into the study of the creation of a book, and more particularly the various steps of its elaboration, from the writing process with its succession of drafts and rewritings, the making-of, the conception of the book itself, the relationship with publishers and agents, to the final exploitation by mass-media, the reading of the book, the phenomenon of literary awards, translations, film and television adaptations. The novels analysed range from the early twentieth century to early twenty-first century, and belong to both British and post-colonial or new literatures from South-Africa, Canada and India. The volume includes lectures by and debates with British writer David Lodge and South African author André Brink.
