Title: Dickens, Manzoni, Zola, and James : the impossible romance
Author: Newton, Ruth; Lebowitz, Naomi
Contributor: University of Missouri Press
Date: 1990
Publisher: University of Missouri Press
Abstract: The unrivaled power and tension in the best works of Dickens, Manzoni, Zola, and James are derived precisely from the authors' imaginative experimentation with the dialectic structure of this perpetual opposition. Unlike so many other novelists of the nineteenth century who characteristically suffered assimilation to generic and historic conventions, they were able to endure the "internal disturbances" attendant not upon willed mediation but upon willed refusal of mediation.
