Gene Wolfe Interview

Gene Wolfe Interview

(p.101) 9 Gene Wolfe Interview
Shadows of the New Sun

James B. Jordan

Liverpool University Press

Jordan's fitful interview with Wolfe ranges across Wolfe's religious and political beliefs, science, the practice of being a novelist, The Book of the New Sun, The Urth of the New Sun, and Wolfe's use of the symbol and notion of the wolf. It is at its most revealing when Jordan discusses the religious dimensions of Wolfe's work – particularly with regard to The Book of the New Sun and There Are Doors – Wolfe's perspective on female and male subjectivity, and his treatment of the pagan world in Soldier of the Mist and Soldier of Arete.

Keywords:   James B. Jordan, Gene Wolfe, Book of the New Sun, Urth of the New Sun, There Are Doors, Soldier of the Mist, Soldier of Arete, Symbolism, Religion, subjectivity
