As Franco Moretti has shown, the relationship between the individual and modern society produced in the realist Bildungsroman was one governed by the logic of compromise and exchange, with happiness and freedom as the currency of this symbolic economy.26 In the Joycean Bildungsroman, this governing logic has been replaced by the Oedipal logic of separation and identification. The plot in Portrait is constructed out of Stephen’s struggle to forge and construct his own identity in opposition to the various social and

Both Jeffersons, though, embody the Enlightenment imperative to self-regulate, to overwrite the landscape with what Franco Moretti has described as ‘the impersonal and automatic mechanisms of the market economy’.30 In Mason & Dixon this imperial geography is competing with an already crowded terrain, for the land is inscribed with earlier – and differently configured – markings

Moretti finds that in The White Devil John Webster’s exposure of the inauthenticity of every form of faith does ‘ironic service’ (cf. p. 127) to interdenominational rapprochement, as a type of negative ecumenicism that leaves playgoers desiring to pretend their common Christianity. And even in Macbeth James R. Macdonald identifies an eschatological ambivalence, compounded by Thomas Middleton’s co

Franco Moretti makes an analogous argument with respect to Renaissance tragedy: ‘Tragedy disentitled the absolute monarch to all ethical and rational legitimation.

, indicates the high degree of global transmissibility of spectacle-driven and action-adventure films, given what Franco Moretti terms their ‘abrogation of language’ relative to more voluble genres such as comedies and dramas ( 2013 : 97). Audiences abroad are also able now to view Hollywood’s products much more rapidly than before. The domestic model of TV-advertised saturation release of a film – emergent in the mid-1970s, largely replacing an earlier pattern of gradual, or platform , release (major cities first) – has been internationalised; the launch of blockbusters

With late twentieth-century globalisation, London became defined as a ‘global city’ (Sassen 2001), linked through international flows of capital and financial services and information to other nodes – New York, Tokyo – of an emergent global information network, a
