In this trenchant and lively study Brian McHale undertakes to construct a version of postmodernist fiction which encompasses forms as wide-ranging as North American metafiction, Latin American magic realism, the French New New Novel, concrete prose and science fiction.

Considering a variety of theoretical approaches including those of Ingarden, Eco, Dolezel, Pavel, and Hrushovski, McHale shows that the common denominator is postmodernist fiction’s ability to thrust its own ontological status into the foreground and to raise questions about the world or worlds in which we live.

Exploiting various theoretical approaches to literary ontology – those of Ingarden, Eco, Dolezel, Pavel, Hrushovski and others – and ranging widely over contemporary world literature, McHale assembles a comprehensive repertoire of postmodernist fiction’s strategies of world-making and -unmaking. Whether or not you agree with his provocative definition of the postmodern, McHale’s argument is always engaging, bold and forceful. A useful and comprehensive examination of the nature of The Beast.
