The Image of Trotsky in Saul Bellow’s Works: The Dialectical Fabric of Fact and Fiction

The paper explores the correlation between biography, history and fiction in Saul Bellow’s early works. Regarding the image of Trotsky that persistently appears in his books, the presented analysis identifies a range of narrative devices that help transpose fact into fiction, such as framing (story inside a story), counterpoint construction, and deliberately subjective perception of historical events.
