In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Daniel R. Schwarz, Frederic J Whiton Professor of English and Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow, will present his new book, Reading the Modern European Novel Since 1900: A Critical Study of Major Fiction from Proust's Swann's Way to Ferrante's Neapolitan Tetralogy (John Wiley & Sons, March 25, 2018). A sequel to his Reading the European Novel to 1900, the work adheres to Professor Schwarz’s mantra “Always the Text; Always Historicize” to discuss recurring themes and techniques in modern European fiction within the contexts of significant historical events such as the two World Wars and the Holocaust. Professor Schwarz, author of eighteen books and a legendary teacher at Cornell for fifty-one years, will also discuss the relationship between modern European fiction and other art forms.
