Issues of Shame and Guilt in the Modern Novel
Conrad, Ford, Greene, Kafka, Camus, Wilde, Proust, and ManneBook - 2009
This study addresses the changes in literary depictions of remorse fostered by modernist literature's response to normative ethical standards. Certain twentieth-century authors believed that the High Modern Period demanded a reconsideration of how individuals may hope to achieve the same social responsibility dictated by traditional values in light of a greater awareness of fundamental human impulses.
