The Cosmopolitan Novel

Berthold Schoene

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses Ian McEwan's works that capture the sensibility of a newly emergent Anglo-British contemporaneity. The first is Black Dogs, which explores a fundamentally European sense of belonging, but still remains preoccupied with Europe's dark past instead of its post-1989 moment of elated reunification. The second work is Saturday, which presents the life of a successful London neurosurgeon during a day of global rallying against the approaching Iraq War.

Keywords:   Ian McEwan, Anglo-British contemporaneity, Black Dogs, sense of belonging, Saturday, global rallying, Iraq War
