Although Meyerhoff does not restrict himself to a particular period in literary history, most of his references are to twentieth-century writers who have been especially preoccupied with the subject of time - writers such as James Joyce, Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, F.

Scott Fitzggerald, Thomas Mann, and Thomas Wolfe.If Literature, like music, is a temporal art- if, as Thomas Mann said, time is the medium of narration, as it is the medium of life- and if once upon a time is the timeless theme of every story told by man, from fairy tales to the opening sentence of Joyces A Portrait of the Artist as the Young Man - then to be engaged in literature leads naturally to questions about the meaning of time for art and man.The purpose of the book is fourfold: first, to analyze in detail the major elements of time in literature and experience- second, to show how this literary portrait of time differs from the concepts of time constructed by science- third, to give some explanation for the increasing concern with the theme of time in contemporary literature- and fourth, to suggest what may be the meaning of the literary and scientific treatment of time for philosophy.
