The Fiction of Timothy Findley

Unknown - 1991
Rate this:
This first full-length study of Timothy Findley argues that his novels and short stories are part of a system of war texts. Not only is Findley's fiction haunted by the specter of war; it is also a compulsive testament to the infinite repetitions of war in domestic, gender, and class conflicts. Influenced by feminist literary theory, the workings of literary intertextuality, and the new historiography, the study shows how war as a literary device#151;as well as various historical wars, documents of war, and literary war texts#151;inform the novels and stories of Timothy Findley to such an extent that war becomes an integral part of their signifying systems.
