The distinctive and varied formal roles that a fictional society might play in a novel is the subject of this pioneering work. Langland opens with a discussion of novel theory, placing her perspectives within contemporary theory, and follows with a discussion of novels from the British, American, and Continental traditions from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. She also raises questions about society in the novel as an expression of Western and Eastern values.

Originally published in 1984.
