Many poets, playwrights, and novelists have grappled with the concept of time. Even more scholars have analyzed how novelists have used time for structuring, organizing, plotting and philosophizing. This collection of essays about the use of time in the novel is unique not only because the writers cover a wide range of concepts of time, but also because they locate certain novels within a specific time culture. The chapters analyze novels (and one film) with definite time cultures, providing hints as to the future of the use of time in the novel. Emily Bald’s chapter begins the collection in the nineteenth century with Life in the Iron Mills showing both inner time – the perceptual time which fluctuates with the vicissitudes of affective experience – and external time, which has become known as clock time. This ties in well with Rachel Kaufmann’s chapter exploring felt time in contemporary women’s literature. Marco Caracciolo’s chapter adds “cosmic time” to Ricoeur’s monumental and mortal time with the case studies of Virginia Woolf’s The Waves, and Terrence Malick’s film The Tree of Life. Two chapters explore the effects of World War Two: AJ Burgin presents the disorienting technique of Martin Amis’ Time’s Arrow that shows time going backwards – even in dialogue. Raymond Burt presents two novels of Michael Köhlmeier, a contemporary Austrian writer, spanning the decades since the end of World War Two, with his chapter drawing the link between time and morality. The final chapter on Calvino’s If on a winter’s night a traveler shows the multiplicity of time that the previous chapters have demonstrated so clearly. Terms such as affect, truth, haunting, memory, reality, identity, morality and mortality all resonate within these chapters as characters within the novels and their specific culture areas grapple with time, recall the past, and attempt to live in the present. Many of the writers in this collection point towards possible new methods of dealing with time; reading methods; engaging with the novel writers of the future in new and interesting relationships. Here, Time has not been wasted.

The all new essays in this book discuss Black cultural retellings of traditional, European fairy tales. The representation of Black protagonists in such tales helps to shape children's ideas about themselves and the world beyond their limited experiences. Allowing them to see themselves in traditional tales strengthens connections with the world and can ignite a will to read books representing diverse ethnic and cultural characters. Also discussed is the need for a multicultural text set which includes the multiplicity of cultures within the Black Diaspora.The tales referenced in the text are rich and diverse in perspective, illuminating stories such as Aesop's fables, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ananse. Readers will see that stories from Black perspectives adhere to the dictates of traditional literary conventions while steeped in literary traditions that can be traced back to Africa or the diaspora.

A certain king had a beautiful garden, and in the garden stood a tree which bore golden apples. These apples were always counted, and about the time when they began to grow ripe it was found that every night one of them was gone. The king became very angry at this, and ordered the gardener to keep watch all night under the tree. The gardener set his eldest son to watch; but about twelve o'clock he fell asleep, and in the morning another of the apples was missing. Then the second son was ordered to watch; and at midnight he too fell asleep, and in the morning another apple was gone. Then the third son offered to keep watch; but the gardener at first would not let him, for fear some harm should come to him: however, at last he consented, and the young man laid himself under the tree to watch. As the clock struck twelve he heard a rustling noise in the air, and a bird came flying that was of pure gold; and as it was snapping at one of the apples with its beak, the gardener's son jumped up and shot an arrow at it. But the arrow did the bird no harm; only it dropped a golden feather from its tail, and then flew away. The golden feather was brought to the king in the morning, and all the council was called together. Everyone agreed that it was worth more than all the wealth of the kingdom: but the king said, 'One feather is of no use to me, I must have the whole bird.'
