The object of this thesis is to analyse Brooke-Rose's refusal of Realism and the critique of the notion of identity she accomplishes in her novels. My work therefore concentrates on both the question of how far Brooke-Rose's fiction interrogates the idea of Reality proper to Realism and, as a complement to that, how far it is a fiction that questions the notion of identity as defined by Western humanism and corroborated by Realism.

Abstract

The object of this thesis is to analyse Brooke-Rose's refusal of Realism and the critique of the notion of identity she accomplishes in her novels. My work therefore concentrates on both the question of how far Brooke-Rose's fiction interrogates the idea of Reality proper to Realism and, as a complement to that, how far it is a fiction that questions the notion of identity as defined by Western humanism and corroborated by Realism.
