Late Euro­peans and melan­choly fic­tion at the turn of the mil­len­ni­um
BuchcoverThis book is the first com­par­a­tive study of nov­els by Patrick Modi­ano, W. G. Sebald, and Anto­nio Muñoz Moli­na. Draw­ing on many lit­er­ary fig­ures, move­ments, and tra­di­tions, from the Span­ish Gold­en Age, to Ger­man Roman­ti­cism, to French phi­los­o­phy, via Jew­ish mod­ernist lit­er­a­ture, Ian Elli­son offers a fresh per­spec­tive on Euro­pean fic­tion pub­lished around the turn of the mil­len­ni­um. Reflect­ing on what makes Euro­pean fic­tion Euro­pean, this book exam­ines how cer­tain nov­els under­stand them­selves to be cul­tur­al­ly and his­tor­i­cal­ly late, express­ing a melan­choly aware­ness of how the past and present are irrec­on­cil­able. With­in this frame­work, how­ev­er, it con­sid­ers how back­wards-fac­ing, tra­di­tion-ori­ent­ed self-con­scious­ness, bur­dened by a sense of exhaus­tion in Euro­pean cul­ture and the vio­lence of its past, may yet sug­gest the poten­tial for re-enchant­ment in the face of obso­les­cence.
