The Wounded Hero in Contemporary Fiction : A Paradoxical Quest Hardback
Edited by Susana (University of Zaragoza, Spain) Onega, Jean-Michel (Universite Paul Valery, France) Ganteau
Part of the Routledge Studies in Contemporary Literature series
The Wounded Hero in Contemporary Fiction tracks the emergence of a new type of physically and/or spiritually wounded hero(ine) in contemporary fiction.
Editors, Susana Onega and Jean-Michel Ganteu bring together some of the top minds in the field to explore the paradoxical lives of these heroes that have embraced, rather than overcome, their suffering, alienation and marginalisation as a form of self-definition.
