Description - The Art Of Subtext by Charles Baxter

Discusses and illustrates the hidden subtextual overtones and undertones in fictional works haunted by the unspoken, the suppressed and the secreted. Using an array of examples from melville to Dostoevsky and contemporary writers Paula Fox, Edward P Jones and Lorrie Moore, Baxter explains how fictional writers create those visible and invisible details - how what is displayed evokes what is not displayed.
