Example text

The result was that it was all the more important to consider just what the past meant for those in the present. In a more recent analysis of the retrospective tradition in the post-war novel, David Leon Higdon delineates three distinct currents within the post-war novel devoted to doing just this. The first is made up of ‘retrospective novelists in which the act of looking backwards transforms the individual who becomes subject and object’, the second includes ‘fiction imitating past fiction in a very self-conscious fashion’, and the third is built around an interest ‘in a new group of protagonists – biographers, bibliographers, historians, geologists, anthropologists and even paleontologists – whose lives are caught up with the past’ (Higdon 1984: 9, 10, 11–12).

5 The beginning and ending of this century are distinguished, as Henry Sussman has said, by ‘a firm sense, as firm as possible, of the linguistic constitution of reality, and the conceptual systems erected to qualify, modify, and contain it’ (Sussman 1990: 130). But while representation was considered problematic at the modernist end of the century, I would contend that it is only in the postmodern age that it really enters a phase of crisis. After the Second World War powerful strands of anti-humanist thought from structuralism to poststructuralism and postmodernism were starting to make their influence felt.

Caen 1978) Elsewhere in the same year she suggests that Wittgenstein was essentially a ‘structuralist’ and goes on to suggest why by using a familiar metaphor when considering the relationship between structuralism and literature: ‘The writer must realize that he lives and moves within a “significanceworld”, and not think that he can pass through it or crawl under the net of signs’ (Magee 1978). In her 1987 introduction to the reissue of Sartre she suggests that Derrida ‘exposes philosophical fallacies which were earlier the target of Wittgenstein’ (S 37).
