    One thought on “Figural Realism: Studies in the Mimesis Effect”

    1. I think this is a book that was a bit over my head The text was anything but limpid and flowing, and its choices of examples were less than scholarly I think it fares poorly in my view because I read it alongside Auerbach s Mimesis a reread , but really not much useful material could be found.
