  • But in many — perhaps most— Bildungsromane, this world of otherness is of subordinate interest; the real emphasis is on the development of the self of the protagonist. -- "Self and Other in Two Bildungsromane: The Centaur and The Magus", in John Neary, Something and Nothingness: the Fiction of John Updike & John Fowles, 1999, p.103.
