Product description

This is the first full-length study of Jeanette Winterson's work as a whole, containing in-depth analyses of her nine novels and cross-references to her minor fictional and non-fictional works. It establishes the formal, thematic and ideological characteristics of the novels and situates the writer within the general panorama of contemporary British fiction, and combines the study of formal issues, such as narrative structure, point of view, perspective, and the handling of narrative and story time, with the thematic analysis of character types, recurrent topics, intertextual and generic allusions. It reveals how superficially simple and realistic novels are complex linguistic artifacts with a convoluted structure, filled with intertextual echoes of earlier writers and works.
