Larsen (co-ed. w. Jørgensen & Higonnet): Pathways through Realism

Svend Erik Larsen, former member of the ICLA theory committee, is co-editor, with Steen Bille Jørgensen and Margaret R. Higonnet, of Volume II of Landscapes of Realism: Rethinking Literary Realism in Comparative Perspectives. Subtitled Pathways through Realism, this collection of essays is the thirty-third tome of the Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages, the ICLA sponsored book series published by John Benjamins. Pathways through Realism shows in its four core essays and twenty-four case studies four major pathways through the landscapes of realism: the psychological pathways focusing on emotion and memory; the referential pathways highlighting the role of materiality; the formal pathways demonstrating the dynamics of formal experiments; and the geographical pathways exploring the worlding of realism from the nineteenth century to the present.
