2000 0-7734-7783-7
This study critically explores both modernist and postmodernist narratives tracing themes of metamorphosis. Through an emphasis on transformation, literal metamorphoses reveal much about modern literary criticism and culture. Using specific examples from literature, it shows how these substitutions impact and generate complex meaning when married to identity.
