about

The book discusses the evolution of the urban chronotope in the selected novels by Peter Ackroyd, an acclaimed British author. The examined narratives illustrate the transformation from the postmodern tenets of historiographic metafiction into a unique urban mythopoetics by means of a semiotic analysis.
Marta Komsta is Assistant Professor of English Literature at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin (Poland). She published on space as well as utopian and Gothic conventions in contemporary British and American literature and film.
