Abstract

This piece is a historically-situated comparative literary analysis through the lens of critical theory. In it, I analyze two novels, The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen (2001) and Faserland by Christian Kracht (1995), primarily as social artifacts, texts that are indicative of our current historical moment and the various social, cultural, and political undercurrents that inhabit it.
