The professor did it again!,
This review is from: Consciousness and the Novel (Paperback)
David Lodge is not only an outstanding and entertaining novelist but a critic as well as a professor. In this new book of essays he does what he did so well in The art of fiction and The practice of writing: he makes us understand great novels and writers, he ponders on the mechanics of style, and he tells about his problems as a creator.
His insights on the technical aspects of literary theory are neither so rarefied that the common reader cannot understand, nor so simplified that a student may not profit by it.
A real jewell, Lodge did it again.
