Abstract

Michael Schmidt’s The Novel: A Biography(2014) is an ambitious,erudite study exploring the 700-year history of the novel in English.Tracing the intensification of interest in the story of the novel in English as a privileged unit of world literature, Schmidt rethinks its complexity that unfolds like a richly varied landscape one would like to explore in depth. Exquisitely written, meticulously conceived, and deeply learned, The Novel:A Biography draws our attention to tensions within the logics of substitution, representation, and identification upon which novelists both male and female often stake their claims.
