About this book

Confronted with apartheid, dictatorship or the sheer scale of global economics, realism can no longer function with the certainties of the nineteenth century. Free Realist Style considers how the style of the realist novel changes as its epistemological horizons narrow.

Reviews

"Exploring a truly timely topic, Nicholas Robinette's analysis intercedes in a set of conversations about the relation between form and politics in 20th century Anglophone literature, with particular attention to what we now call literatures of the Global South. Scholars of postcolonial studies will greatly benefit from Robinette's insightful and important intervention." - Susan Z. Andrade, Associate Professor of English, University of Pittsburgh, USA
