Women in the House of Fiction

86) The realist setting – the house of fiction itself – is becoming transparent. The
emptying city and the emptying inner space correspond; and the new barbarism
without is overwritten by the transcendence of the personal within. Despite its ...

From the gothic fantasies of Walpole’s Otranto to post-modern takes on the country house by Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan, Phyllis Richardson guides us on a tour through buildings real and imagined to examine how authors’ personal experiences helped to shape the homes that have become icons of English literature. We encounter Jane Austen drinking ‘too much wine’ in the lavish ballroom of a Hampshire manor, discover how Virginia Woolf’s love of Talland House at St Ives is palpable in To the Lighthouse, and find Evelyn Waugh remembering Madresfield Court as he plots Charles Ryder’s return to Brideshead. Drawing on historical sources, biographies, letters, diaries and the novels themselves, House of Fiction opens the doors to these celebrated houses, while offering candid glimpses of the writers who brought them to life.

This is the first full-length stufy of Zola's practice as a novelist. Although Zola's literary achievement has been revalued in the last 25 years, critical attention has been concentrated on the contrast between his work's realistic dimension and its poetic power. Now the balance is redressed by this study of Zola as a crafstman. Most of the ten specially commissioned chapters in this book are concerned with its great saga of Les Rougon-Macquart. In each, Zola's techniques are related to problems on genre and representation and several relate his techniques to those used in contemporary melodrama, journalism and impressionist painting.
