AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A dedicated, elaborated thought stream from an author who, like McElroy, has read and thought about  the presence of censorship (as theme and experience) in novels by Ross Gibson, Shariar Mandinipour,J. .M. Coetzee, W. G. Sebald, Mark Z Danielewski, Italo Calvino, and Fernando Pessoa. Author David Thomas Henry Wright explores the (loss of) authority of the literary novel in a time of “networked glut” while at the same time seeking trans-national, trans-historical, photographic, multi-medial and inter-generational “alliances”  that might redress contemporary censorship and “deeply shape (or erode) contemporary literature.”'

  • Also discusses Shariar Mandanipour’s Censoring an Iranian Love Story, W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants, and Ross Gibson’s The Summer Exercises.
