Description

This study examines the development of the Scottish writer Muriel Spark as a major experimental writer through a detailed study of some of her critical writings and novels. This critical volume focuses on the radically innovative devices employed by Spark in her fiction as a mode to express her worldview. Spark reflects her postmodernist concerns by raising complex ontological questions about the nature of reality, human existence and identity. Her experimentation with the form and technique of fiction is a means to examine the nature of fiction itself and its relationship with the world. Her major works are examined in this volume with a focus on Spark's persistent concern with the relationship between art and reality, her mythical method in the construction of narratives, and her perceptions of the complex power equations existing in human society.
