Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A. S. Byatt is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed contemporary writers. This new study provides a lively and detailed exploration of her fiction and non-fiction, and examines Byatt's work in the light of postmodern concerns with language, narrative and self-referentiality.

Ideal for students and general readers alike, A. S. Byatt features:

- a supporting timeline of key dates

- biographical and cultural analysis of key texts such as Possession and the recent The Children's Book

- discussion of the full range of Byatt's literary output, including her novels, short stories and critical writings

- a survey of selected landmark interviews

- a comprehensive overview of the critical reception of Byatt's work.
