AbstractHistoryArchive Description

As allusions to Christian tradition are a recurrent and prominent feature in Carey's work, the author of this article discusses them with regard to their function as thematic feature and as narrational devices or formal feature. Larsson's careful reading shows that several of Carey's novels are 'more firmly rooted in the Christian tradition than the author's self-conception as "an atheist" and the postcolonial condemnation of totalizing, essentialist narratives would lead one to believe' (Introduction to Fabulating Beauty xxx).
