Editorial Reviews


rich in insight, and, for a study which espouses silence, seductively eloquent. Mary Bryden, Cardiff University This is a dense and closely-argued study which gives a new take on the dynamics of language. It promises to be deeply influential. Barbara Wright, Journal of French Studies

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
In this sensitive and thoughtful book, Elisabeth Loevlie challenges the way we read and think about literature and its absence. Through a close reading of Pascal, Rousseau and Beckett, Loevlie reveals that there is as much happening between the lines and in the margins as there is in the words themselves. Essential reading for anyone who loves literature.
