Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds.

Is there a developing genre in English that might be called the bardo mode?  How are his thematic and political commitments inflected by artistic choices involving prose, theatricality, and the cinematic imagination?
