Against the Event

Michael Sayeau

Against the Event: The Everyday and the Evolution of Modernist Narrative investigates how a modernity famed for temporal acceleration - from Benjamins shock and distraction to the postmodern loss of historical consciousness diagnosed by Jameson - generated fictions defined, strangely enough, not just by the new but just as forcefully by everyday depletions of stasis and repetition, a flood of sameness in modern life. With close attention to the novels
of Flaubert, Wells, Conrad, and Joyce, Against the Event relates this aspect of modernity to modernist and proto-modernist problems of narrative form, in particular the banalizing effects of genre, the threatening necessity of closure, and the obsolescence of the coherent narrator. In doing so, Against the
Event is also an intervention into one of the pressing philosophical and theoretical issues of our time, that of the nature of the event.
