Omtale: Isherwood's Fiction
Informed by Eriksonian psychology, this study of Isherwood's fiction examines the ever-changing relationship between the writer and his protagonists. The author explores how Isherwood's fiction achieves artistic integration and literary significance only when it reflects his personal concerns through theme and technique as he experiments with new narrative strategies. An evolving self emerges as Isherwood's work moves from the use of the namesake narrator and adolescent anxieties to an omniscient narrator and the concerns of young and mature adulthood and then to a divided narrative voice as mature age reviews and assesses the meaning of one's life.
