This book provides innovative readings of the key texts of A.S. Byatt's oeuvre by analysing the negotiations of individual identity, cultural memory, and literature which inform Byatt's novels. Steveker explores the concepts of identity constructed in the novels, showing them to be deeply rooted in British literary history and cultural memory.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Steveker's monograph combines a brilliant capacity for minute descriptions of highly complex theories with a talent for sophisticated criticism.' - ZAA

'...aptly captures Byatt's unique blend of energentic storytelling and astute intellectualism, and with it the essentially hermeneutic model of the reading and writing imagination that informs much, perhaps all of Byatt's writerly output.' - English Studies
