Fiction: The Search for Friendship.
Stoker, Richard Judge
The first part of this dissertation deals with fiction, friendship and a theory of substitutes. Chapter one offers a number of friendship types from which a definition of friendship can be built. Chapter two shows how language functions as a substitute for friendship and what is meant by private language. The second half of the dissertation deals in more depth with the relationship of males in fiction. Chapter three concerns itself with the novels of James Joyce particularly as they evince the theory of disinterestedness and of artistic isolation. Chapter four examines "Women in Love" by Lawrence, where it is found that when the male chooses another male as a friend he is searching for self-identification. The last chapter investigates the transcendental heritage in American novels, attempting to uncover the lie of autonomy which inevitably victimizes the Self and Others. (Author/HOD)
