Summary
"Nation and Novel traces English prose fiction from its late medieval origins to the present day. Major novelists from Daniel Defoe to V. S. Naipaul have drawn on national history and mythology in novels which have pitted Cavalier against Puritan, Troy against Whig, region against nation, and domesticity against empire."--BOOK JACKET
