Editorial Reviews


«Lewis' results serve to enlighten the reader on the details of Realist narrative, showing the communalities between the high and more popular literatures of the day. She has produced a study that will introduce the narratological context for Realist prose and serve as a touchstone for many future sociological and structural analyses of German realism.» (Katherine Arens, University of Texas at Austin)
