Jeanette Winterson

Susana Onega

Published by Manchester University Press

Contemporary British Novelists MUP

  • 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
  • Establishes the formal, thematic and ideological characteristics of the novels and situates the writer within the general panorama of contemporary British fiction
  • 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 topoi, intertextual and generic allusions
  • Reveals how superficially simple and realistic novels are complex linguistic artifacts with a convoluted structure and clogged with intertextual echoes of earlier writers and works
