Reading the Graphic Surface free pdf This book critically engages with the visual appearance of prose fiction where it is manipulated by authors, from alterations in typography to the deconstruction of the physical form of the book. It reappraises the range of effects it is possible to create through the use of graphic devices and explores why literary criticism has dismissed such features as either unreadable experimental gimmicks or, more recently, as examples of the worst kind of postmodern decadence. Through the examination of problematical texts which utilise the graphic surface in innovative and unusual ways, including Samuel Beckett's Watt, B. S. Johnson's Albert Angelo, Christine Brooke-Rose's Thru and Alasdair Gray's Lanark, this book demonstrates that an awareness of the graphic surface can make significant contributions to interpretation.
