The novel is a dominant genre in world literature. After sparse beginnings in the Seventeenth – century England, novels grew exponentially in production by the eighteenth century and in the nineteenth century became the the primary form of popular entertainment. The book renders critical readings of the Victorian and modern novelists such as, D. H. Lawrence, Virginian Woolf, Charlotte Bronte, George Orwell, Ahdaf Soueif, Nawal El Saadawi, Liana Badr, Rajja Al Sanea, Hanan Al Shaykh, Ala Al-Aswany, Aravind Adiga, Mohsin Hamid and Benyamin Daniel. It spans the spectacular development of the English novel to the world where many crucial issues are discussed such as, globalization, identity politics, Western and Arab feminism, immigration, racism and the impact of 9/11 on world literature.
