|Book Description: The Bronze Mask
presents an analysis of fifty famous protagonists from some of the finest and most enduring works of fiction – predominantly novels – over the past five hundred years. The characters from the novels selected are mainly those critiqued from famous British and American authors, although characters from authors of Canadian, Australian and New Zealander backgrounds are also included. 50 of fictions’ notable novels and a selection of their central characters (protagonists) from Chaucer’s “The Wife of Bath” of The Canterbury Tales
in the fifteenth century to Cormac McCarthy’s “Father and Son” of The Road
in the twenty-first century, are discussed, explained and critiqued. The Bronze Mask
casts critical light upon the writers’ works, the characters they have created, and the critics who have read them. The arrangement of the chapters and vignettes is chronological, enabling similarities, differences, and narrative and characteristic developments to be traced. The Bronze Mask
portrays continuities and departures, congruencies and anomalies in the development of the fictional character over the past five hundred years, primarily from an Anglo-American perspective. (Imprint: Nova)
