Literature and Science (Outlining Literature)

By: Charlotte Sleigh (author)Hardback

2 - 4 weeks availability


The growing field of literature and science is for the first time given a fully theorized overview. Using case studies from a three hundred year history, Sleigh focuses on literary form and argues that novels did not just reflect or inform areas of science, but were part of a broader, ongoing cultural negotiation about how to read things.
