About

I am interested in a microsociological, socio-psychological approach to the close reading of British and American literature. My basic claim is that some types of fiction reflect life’s constructed, that is, fictional quality. I am presently focusing on the phenomena of intimacies, taking up works by Jane Austen, Henry James, Edith Wharton, George Eliot, and Nathaniel Hawthorne to see how these authors depicted their protagonists as they generated, maintained and dissolved their intimacies with others.
