Michael Hanne (au). Can a novel cause riots, start a war, free serfs or slaves, break up marriages, drive readers to suicide, close factories, bring about legal change, swing an election, or serve as a weapon in a national or international struggle? These are some of the larger effects which have been ascribed to certain exceptional novels & other works of fiction over the last 200 years. Hanne explores whether it is possible to describe the mechanisms by which each text has engaged with the political forces of the time. This essay on narrative & power is followed by five detailed case studies of works by Turgenev, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ignazio Silone, Solzhenitsyn, & Salman Rushdie, each of which had or were said to have had a major impact on the political events in their time.
