Impure Worlds

The Institution of Literature in the Age of the Novel

Jonathan Arac

A Fordham University Press Publication

This book records a major critic's three decades of thinking about the connection between literature and the conditions of people's lives-that is, politics. A preference for impurity and a search for how to analyze and explain it are guiding threads in this book as its chapters pursue the complex entanglements of culture,politics, and society from which great literature arises.
