Description

It shows that when it comes to literature, national boundaries are porous and aesthetic influences travel across cultures. Proust was a French author who forever changed Spanish literature. A recent trend in literary theory is to question the integrity of national boundaries to explain how literary conventions travel internationally. This is the first book to examine how Marcel Proust, a French novelist, affected literary styles and genres in Spain, a neighboring country. Up until this point there has been a sort of nationalistic backlash against this sort of theorizing that views literature in culturally sacrosanct terms. This book challenges the assumption of national purity in literary style.
