'A further reservation in favour of strangeness': Isherwood's Queer Pastoral in The Mortmere Stories and 'On Reugen Island'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Christie believes that as the test of Christopher Isherwood's emerging realism, "The Mortmere Stories" invite critical reassessments of the authors' purported immaturity. A juxtaposition of Isherwood's pastoral and his subsequent, trademark realism suggests a contingent rather than linear development of the two forms, a development relying in no small part upon a conflicting dynamic that can produce innovative dialogic effects.
