About the Author

LENA STEVEKER holds a PhD from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and teaches British Literary and Cultural Studies at Saarland University, Germany. She has published articles on contemporary British literature and early modern drama. Her current book project is a co-edited collection of critical essays on the Harry Potter novels.


'Steveker's monograph combines a brilliant capacity for minute descriptions of highly complex theories with a talent for sophisticated criticism.' - ZAA

'...aptly captures Byatt's unique blend of energentic storytelling and astute intellectualism, and with it the essentially hermeneutic model of the reading and writing imagination that informs much, perhaps all of Byatt's writerly output.' - English Studies
