JEAN RHYS: A Study in Short Fiction

Edition: First printing.

New York: Twayne, (1996) dj. Hardcover first edition - In her 50 year career, Rhys produced just 5 novels and 3 volumes of short stories, but she was a central feminist and modernist voice in 20th century fiction. This is the first "full-length critical analysis of Rhys's contributions to the short story genre. Maintaining that Rhys's overriding interest was the outsider - 'the underdog, the normally silenced, the excluded, the ignored' - the Malcolms examine the stories from the perspective of this motif. Selected stories 6 among them 'Illusion', 'Mannequin', and 'Let Them Call It Jazz' - are given in-depth treatment, as are the heretofore neglected technical aspects of Rhys's work: narration, style, plot, action, and setting." Frontispiece portrait, chronology, selected bibliography, index. 144 pp. ISBN: 0-805708553.

Condition: Fine in a very near fine dust jacket. (as new, but sunning to spine of dj)
