Summary

Summary

In spite of the fact that Wells produced more than fifty widely read and varied novels, he has long been relegated to the back shelf of literature. This first critical study to investigate thoroughly Wells's role as a creative artist provides a reassessment of Wells as a major novelist in the perspective of twentieth-century literature, comparing him with Joyce and James.
