Description

This work shows how the literary and political ideas of Mirbeau generated a vision of reality foreshadowing Modernity. Through Mirbeau's descriptions of the effects of technological, scientific developments of the day and the temporal and spatial implications of such developments on the literary process, coupled with his advocacy of a radical political ideology to expose the inadequacies of social democracy, it covers the relationship between literature and politics, showing how innovation in the creative process provides a reflective framework for the expression of political difference.
