Abstract
This essay will examine the constructs that I am employing in my work-in-progress novel about Northern Ireland, ‘rubber bullet, broken glass’ (subsequently renamed 'So It Is'. Using M.M. Bakhtin's ‘The Problem of Speech Genres’ it is intended that the paper interrogates authorial decision, literary antecedent, and the relationship between form and content.
