1 Harvey, W.J. Character and the Novel
London Chatto and Windus 1965 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Gold title on purple boards which have a thin line of fading to to and lower edges but no wear. Internally there is a small neat name to front endpaper else very clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket has age darkening, minimal wear and is not price clipped. 222 pages. What do we mean when we say that a novel is 'true to life' and that its characters are 'real'? Most moderncritics have evaded this apparently simple question or have given conventional and inadequate answers. In seeking to explore the problem further, Professor Harvey has written a general study of the novel which attempts to relate the world of fiction to our sense of such basic notions as Time, Identity and Freedom. The argument is everywhere reinforced by the criticism of particular novels: Dickens, James, Mann and Sartre are extensively considered, but many other novelists are examined for the light they throw on the central problem of the ways in which Art represents, or trnsmutes Reality. **** NOT EX LIB ****
