Discrepant Solace

Contemporary Literature and the Work of Consolation

David James

  • The first study of consolation in contemporary literature, it reinvigorates the close reading of emotion in memoir and fiction
  • A powerful re-articulation of the aesthetics and politics of affect by a critic who has been instrumental to the scholarly development of contemporary literature studies as a field
  • Moves authoritatively and comparatively across the contemporary scene to engage with a range of literary works and extensive archival materials that have yet to be considered together
