Alex Woloch works on the history of the novel and literary theory. His
teaching is focused on nineteenth-century British literature and covers the
broad development of the European and American novel. He is particularly
interested in narrative realism and the question of representation in its
literary, rhetorical and political dimensions. He is the author of The One vs. the Many: Minor
Characters and the Space of the Protagonist in the Novel (Princeton
University Press, 2004) which attempts to reestablish the centrality of
characterization -- the fictional representation of human beings -- within
narrative poetics. He is also the co-editor, with Peter Brooks, of Whose
Freud?: The Place of Psychoanalysis in Contemporary Culture (Yale
University Press, 2000). He is currently working on a study of George Orwell.
