Essays on Narrative and Critical Method for Jeremy Hawthorn

Edited by Paul Goring, Domhnall Mitchell and jakob Lothe

This collection of essays is a tribute to the literary critic and theorist Jeremy Hawthorn who, during a career of over forty years as an educator and writer, has made numerous major scholarly contributions which have advanced ways of thinking within literary studies.

It contains eighteen essays all addressing topics explored within Hawthorn’s work: pre-modern narrative and critical approaches, literature and politics, Modernist narratives and Joseph Conrad.

Together the essays reflect the diverse and international contours of Hawthorn’s contribution, honouring his achievements whilst also demonstrating how insights from his work continue to inspire and fuel explorations of texts and issues beyond those which he himself has addressed.
