"Concentrating primarily on the 19th century, Lukacs offers brilliant reflections on Scott, Hugo, Tolstoy, and Flaubert, the methods of creating a feeling of historical reality, the tradition of epic, the use of the past by the rising bourgeoisie, the negative influence of naturalism, and the place of overt ideology."-Washington Post Book World

Review: The Historical Novel

User Review  - Victoria - Goodreads

If you must read this, read it with Russian Revolutionary singing in the background. It'll give that extra punch to dramatic sentences like: "Today's historical novel has arisen and is developing amid the DAWN of a NEW democracy." Read full review
