This book explores the many approaches available to the study of law and literature. It creates a space where these two disciplines can interact with one another and generate new thought, within or beyond existing academic disciplines.
The contributors, who are significant scholars from the fields of law and literature, bring the two fields together in their own distinctive ways, looking at what they have to offer one another.
Drawing on subjects as diverse as Socrates and Marx, some analyse the representation of law and legal process in literary works, while others focus on law's representation of literature.
This volume will be particularly useful in making those involved in literary studies more conscious of the impact that law has had on literary history - not least in terms of censorship and the forms of self-censorship that follow upon it.
