This general issue of Mosaic opens with an essay by Margaret Drabble, which she first presented as the ninth annual Sidney Warhaft Memorial Lecture on October 30, 1985 at the University of Manitoba: “Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in the Post-War British Novel.” The lecture is followed by an essay that examines Drabble’s own work and that of her sister, A.S. Byatt. Other essays in the issue examine Friedrich Schiller and politics, Beethoven and Goethe, and William Goodwin and writing. As well, it contains essays discussing poetic responses to Georges Seurat, William Carlos Williams and primitivism, Yevgeny Zamyatin’s politics, and “feminism for men” in The Left Hand of Darkness.
