The Autonomy of the Self from Richardson to Huysmans
Frederick Garber

Paperback | 2014 | $42.95 / £29.95 | ISBN: 9780691614571
328 pp. | 6 x 9

Frederick Garber studies in a wide range of English, French, German, and American literary texts instances of the struggle for the self's autonomy during the period preceding modernism. In tracing a pattern that changes from the unsettling of bourgeois conditions in Richardson to the collapse of that challenge in the Decadents, he demonstrates that this period is characterized by a pervasive dialectic of aloofness and association.

Originally published in 1982.
