From Gillian Beer’s naciob of Virginia Woolf, Rachel Bowlby’s cultural history of Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Francis Mulhern’s study of Leaviste’s ‘English ethics’; to Doris Sommer’s study of the ‘magical realism’ of Latin American bhahba and Sneja Gunew’s analysis of Australian writing, Nation and Narration is a celebration of the fact that English is no longer an English national consciousness, which is not nationalist, but is the only thing that will give us an international dimension.
