"Petruso sees the masterworks of Proust and Joyce as perhaps the quintessential artistic expressions of this process. Against the grain of much of current literary theory, he allows these novels a powerful historical identity, approaching them as character-centered and essentially autobiographical narratives, as artful representations of real events in the inner and outer lives of the authors themselves." "Petruso's reaffirmation of history and of personal context within literature locates the novels of Joyce and Proust in a recognizable literary lineage, determining two kinds of contemporary novels to which they have given rise: subjective experiential works, and those that have developed the elements of formal structuring explored by the two authors."--Jacket." ;
