Seventeenth-Century Fiction

Text and Transmission

Edited by Jacqueline Glomski and Isabelle Moreau

  • Offers a broad overview of the history of early modern fiction that shifts away from the outmoded "rise-of-the-novel" perspective and reaches beyond the boundaries of a single national literature
  • Focuses on the changes in prose forms and their usage at a critical point in the evolution of modern fiction, and comes to grips with the instabilities of the novel and novella during this period
  • Examines how seventeenth-century authors fused fictional and non-fictional materials to create new, hybrid genres
