Dissertation: The War of Myths: From Modernist Archetype to Postmodernist Cartoon explores patterns of apotheosis in a series of British and American novels by Thomas Hardy, E.M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston and Max Apple. The mythic subtexts of these novels create imaginary fields for the rendering of a central character into a divine figure, with reference to Julia Kristeva's psychoanalytic theories of identity transformation.
