The Muddle and the Dream: Intimacy, Utopia, and the Legacies of Bloomsbury in Contemporary Novels

Funding would support the completion of "The Muddle and the Dream," the author's second scholarly book, and two journal articles derived from the book. The book will be of value to scholars and general readers interested in contemporary marriage and intimacy as topics of sociological and philosophical study, as well as those interested in psychology, gender studies, and 20th-century literature, including the "legacies" of modernist authors such as Virginia Woolf and Sigmund Freud. "The Muddle and the Dream" builds on concepts developed in the author's first book "Bloomsbury, Modernism, and the Reinvention of Intimacy" (Cambridge UP 2011) which has received very enthusiastic reviews. By supplying historical and demographic contexts, and by engaging with ideas from the emerging field of intimacy studies, the proposed book promises to shed new light on six major contemporary novelists.
