  • Reviews

  • “[Boardman] has taken for his subject a relatively unexplored area: what happens to narrative structure when novelists decide to experiment, usually late in their careers, with tried and tested forms, in order to give shape and coherence to fresh insights and new perceptions? . . . Here, for the first time, is a comparative, generic study, looking at the last novels from the point of view of narrative theory. . . . At his best (as here), Boardman is a critic worth attending for his patience, good sense, and all-round clarity of vision.”

  • Description

    When the impulse toward innovation arises late in a writer's career, it is often accompanied by a sense of urgency, and the result, as Narrative Innovation and Incoherence demonstrates, raises important questions for literary theory. Michael M. Boardman considers this pressing struggle to find a new form as it appears in the later works of Defoe, Goldsmith, Austen, Eliot, and Hemingway. He analyzes how these authors react to new and compelling beliefs for which a previous way of writing is no longer adequate.
    Urgent innovations, in this account, can only be understood as unique, individual responses to crises in belief. Taking as a point of departure French theorist Althusser's conviction that ideology is intelligible only through structure, Boardman searches for an explanation of both form and ideology not in Marxist concepts of base and superstructure but in the particular structure of an individual artist's writing career. Narrative ideology here becomes more complex than is generally assumed.
    Theoretically informed yet avoiding essentializing explanations of narrative invention, Narrative Innovation and Incoherence offers unexpected insights into the multifaceted relations between form and belief. It will encourage serious students of the novel to reexamine the importance of poetics as a mediating factor in the means of production.

+CIRCA: 1950s







+CONDITION:



Like New, probably unworn. No holes in lace or silk. Maybe one or two hard to notice snags in skirt if at all. The Lining for the top (bust area) is ever so slightly faded to a black with a slight hint or purple. A feature I really like allot, and might even add to this piece. No underarm fading/ staining. Clean and ready to wear.







+SIZE: XS / Small







+MEASUREMENTS:



Bust would probably best fit 32-37 inches. (buttoned flat across measures 17.5 to 19.5" max)



Waist would probably best fit 21-28( TIGHT MAX) inches. (flat across measures 12 to 14" max)



Hips would probably best fit 35-40 inches. (pretty open)



Length from underarm to bottom hem is 36 inches.



Length from underarm to under wrist hem is 18 inches.







Delicate and gorgeous show stopping dress! Features a very sexy and flattering classic silhouette. Silk lace buttons up front. SMALL WAIST. Fully Lined, yet stops under the the top portion perfectly to make a strapless. Inside tag by 50s designer, mr mort. Just past knee length. Made of real SILK and lace. Such a rare gem!! Hem is straight at the bottom and there are no side slits.
