AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What I aim to show in this essay is how and with what personal and political force the narrative re-presents the reading process itself, how it demands the reader's active co-operation and interpretation, to the point of entrapping us in blindness - or rather in a blind sightedness - that doubles that of its protagonist, Teresa Hawkins. In so doing, the novel performs the questions it poses about romance and realism, idealism and materialism, and conveys, inter alia, its response to mid-twentieth century debates about the literature of revolution.' (53-54)
