Abstract:

"Narrative Order, 1789-1819: Life and Story in an Age of Revolution offers a new way of looking at the cultural transformations precipitated in Britain by the French revolution and its global repercussions. Drawing on twentieth-century ideas about the relationship between life and story, Gavin Edwards argues that the experience of social dislocation, both at home and overseas, led British writers to doubt that life could be represented as a narrative, an unbroken temporal sequence with a beginning and an ending."--Jacket.
