Summary

The novel has been called 'the one secular genre'. Biblical Religion and the Novel, 1700-2000, engages with the way the history of the modern novel reflects an ongoing dialogue with religion despite, and even through, the process of secularization. It focusses especially on the role of biblical narratives as subtexts of modern and contemporary literature. The contributors consider a range of texts from the eighteenth through twentieth centuries by Fielding, Brontë, Lawrence, Winterson, and Coupland, among others, to examine in different yet complementary ways the multiplicity of approaches that novelists have adopted to address religious concerns.
