Annotation

Comparison study analyzing the novels’ ambivalent responses to modernist technology. See argues that while both authors recognize the value of speed, they also hold conflicting views on the negative effects of dehumanization created by speed culture. Discusses how each author stylistically, structurally, and thematically creates space to slow reader progress and thus promote reflection and deliberation within their narratives.
