AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper investigates the ways in which Peter Carey manifests the corrupt attractiveness of contemporary consumer societies. ... His novels are satires on the comprehensive dreams and visions of twentieth-century corporate capitalism. In Carey's writing we deal with the notion of cultural imperialism. ... Carey's fiction can be considered a critique and at the same time an ironic celebration of consumer hysteria.' (169-170)
