Literature and the Rise of the Interview

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198825418
Publisher: OUP Oxford

Today interviews are everywhere: in newspapers, on television, and in anthologies; as a method they are a major tool of medicine, the law, the social sciences, oral history projects, and journalism; and in the book trade interviews with authors are a major promotional device. Yet interviews are a relatively new innovation: they didn't exist when Dickens sat down to write. This book traces a literary and cultural history of interviews from the 1860s to today; it reveals the ways in which writers have been interview subjects and interviewers, and how they have used interviews creatively in their fiction and non-fiction. In so doing it offers a behind the scenes view of literary culture itself.
