Book Description

25 Aug 2006
The first collection of original essays ever published on one of England's most controversial, critically acclaimed, and popular writers, Martin Amis: Postmodernism and Beyond fills an important need for scholars, students, and fans of Amis's work. Distinctly international in scope, this collection assembles the work of twelve contributors from six different countries. All are experts in Amis's work and in contemporary British literature in general. New interpretations cover all of Amis's major novels as well as his nonfiction essays and reviews. In addition, the volume provides the first comprehensive bibliography of Amis's nonfiction writing, opening up numerous avenues for subsequent study and enjoyment. In scope, range, and creativity, Martin Amis: Postmodernism and Beyond is destined to become a classic in Martin Amis scholarship and an authoritative resource for anyone interested in literary evolutions from postmodernism onward.

Product Description


'This collection represents a real advance in Martin Amis studies. Twelve informed and exciting essays by an international range of leading Amis scholars and critics explore his novels and literary journalism from a wide variety of aspects and provide a rich source of fresh insights and perspectives. In a theoretically sophisticated but accessible way, they examine the structure, language and significance of his work and its controversial engagements with postmodernity, class, gender and Holocaust. The collection also contains an invaluable bibliography of Amis's prolific nonfiction. This book is essential reading for all those interested in Amis and contemporary writing.' - Nicolas Tredell, School of Humanities, University of Sussex, editor of The Fiction of Martin Amis: A Reader's Guide to Essential Criticism
