From the ancient belief in humors to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries' psychoanalytic and pharmacological methodologies, diverse theories about the mind have affected the literary production of novelists. This volume provides in-depth of major authors of psychological long fiction not categorized according to medical theories but according to four literary techniques: playful etiology, unrepentant confession, stream of consciousness, and Kafkaesque fantasy.
