Forlagets beskrivelse
What do we mean when we say that a novels conclusion feels right? How did feeling, form, and the sense of right and wrong get mixed up, during the nineteenth century, in the experience of reading a novel? Good Form argues that Victorian readers associated the feeling of narrative formof being pulled forward to a satisfying conclusionwith inner moral experience. Reclaiming the work of a generation of Victorian intuitionist philosophers who insisted that true morality consisted in being able to feel or intuit the morally good, Jesse Rosenthal shows that when Victorians discussed the moral dimensions of reading novels, they were also subtly discussing the genres formal properties.For most, Victorian moralizing is one of the periods least attractive and interesting qualities. But Good Form argues that the moral interpretation of novel experience was essential in the development of the novel formand that this moral approach is still a fundamental, if unrecognized, part of how we understand novels. Bringing together ideas from philosophy, literary history, and narrative theory, Rosenthal shows that we cannot understand the formal principles of the novel that we have inherited from the nineteenth century without also understanding the moral principles that have come with them. Good Form helps us to understand the way Victorians read, but it also helps us to understand the way we read now.
