THE WEB OF TRADITION Uses of Allusion in V.S. Naipaul’s Fiction

Product no.: HP008

John Thieme

A comprehensive study of the fiction of V.S. Naipaul including The Mystic Masseur, A House for Mr Biswas and A Bend in the River.

As well as providing a natural introduction to Naipaul’s fiction, it attempts to locate the precise nature of the tradition to which Naipaul belongs through an examination of his use of literary and cultural allusion. It considers the part played in his fiction by such diverse influences as Hindu myth, classical and imperialistic writings, calypso and Hollywood cinema.
