This book investigates the entire spectrum of techniques for portraying the mental lives of fictional characters in both the stream-of-consciousness novel and other fiction. Each chapter deals with one main technique, illustrated from a wide range of nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction by writers including Stendhal, Dostoevsky, James, Mann, Kafka, Joyce, Proust, Woolf, and Sarraute.

Review:

"I am willing to predict that Transparent Minds will serve the present generation of graduate students the way Frye's Anatomy of Criticism served a preceding one."--Marilyn Gaddis Rose, Canadian Review of Comparative Literature

"A lucid, thoroughgoing analysis of the novelist's art, a study that not only reveals the grammatical and stylistic scaffolding on which character is built, but also imparts new insights into individual characters and the works in which they appear. A truly outstanding accomplishment."--William Riggan, World Literature Today

Endorsement:

"This is a book of international stature that cuts through to an understanding of one of the central aspects of 'modernism.' I long to hand it to my students."--David Hayman, University of Wisconsin
