This thesis explores the principal of genre in a divided, yet interconnected form: it comprises of a critical study of genre and an original novel - Shrapnel - which is in part a discussion of genre itself and serves as an object of study for the theoretical discussion of genre. Importantly, the critical element of this thesis informed the construction of the novel and the construction of the novel facilitated and augmented the critical component's discussion of genre. The thesis interrogates the principal of genre by triangulating theoretical understandings of genre, the views of writers and publishing industry professionals and my own experiences of writing a novel that has a problematic relationship with genres whilst being an exploration of genre itself.
