Summary
"In Real Time David F. Bell explores the crucial role the accelerated movement of people and information played in the fictions of four giants of French realism - Balzac, Stendhal, Dumas, and Zola." "Citing examples from a wide range of novels and stories, Bell demonstrates the numerous ways in which trends of acceleration became not just literary devices and themes but also structuring principles of the novels themselves."--Jacket
