Unpaid Annotation
Quema's detailed analysis is based on a distinction between modernism and avant-garde. Thematic and generic contradictions between Lewis's fiction and nonfiction are analyzed, as is his approach to three major aspects of tradition: patriarchal society, empirical realism, and political authority.
