Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction. Of interest to scholars and students of literary and cultural studies, this volume investigates crisis as a complex phenomenon: not only as a cultural concept involving sociopolitical systems but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representation across narrative traditions. Through the examination of a variety of leading authors such as Kazuo Ishiguro, and award-winning texts like Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending (2011), this collection foregrounds the theme of crisis as a critical commonality emerging among vastly different stylistic expressions of local and global concerns. Bringing together a variety of scholars from Germany, Italy, Greece, the UK and the US, this collection provides diverse disciplinary perspectives and highlights the significance of social and ethical concerns in contemporary British fiction through the investigation of the theme of crisis.
