What do we mean when we talk about the form and the configuration
of literature, when we ask questions about the relationship between
content and form or when we talk about the change and the
dynamics of forms in fiction? Prior to the presentation of our central
argument and its analysis in recourse to different novels, namely
Laurence Sterne’s The Life & Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman
(1759), Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange (1962), Vladimir
Nabokov’s Pale Fire (1962), as well as J. J. Abrams and Doug
Dorst’s S. (2013), it is vital to answer these questions through defining
the term ‘form’ in the context of literary fiction.1 Only within the
framework of such a definition is it possible to explain and explore
what formal experiments are. This observation generates the central
concern of the following sections.
