Description

"Academia in Fact and Fiction" comprises twenty-eight essays on the relationship(s) between the university and the practice of belles lettres . The collection includes studies of the teaching of fiction by university professors; the fit - or misfit - between the creative writer and the academy; the depiction of the university, its staff and atmosphere, in literature, cinema and new media; and the varieties of academic fiction ranging from the ludic and satirical to the tragic. Most of the works addressed in the volume are British or American, modern or contemporary, but the historical range extends to Victorian and Shakespearian works, and the geographical range includes novels and poems from Russia, New Zealand, and Nigeria. Among the genres discussed are, in addition to the "literary novel", plays, detective fiction, fanfiction, utopias, mysteries and alternative history. The contributors are international and cosmopolitan.
