Format: Hardcover
"Orthodox, humanist notions of the literary confession, and its assumed relationship to truth authority and subjectivity are challenged, in their place a range of critical perspectives and practices are adopted, utilizing the insights of contemporary critical theorists. Modern Confessional Writing develops and tests new, theoretically-informed perspectives on what confessional writing is, how it functions and what it means to both writer and reader. When read from these new perspectives modern confessional writing is liberated from the misconception it provides a kind of easy authorial release and readerly catharsis, and is instead read as a discursive, self-reflexive, sophisticated and demanding genre."

Read this description and discern 1) what it means 2) whether it is grammatical or even sensical. This book's description could serve as an example of why academic publishing has become so deeply unpopular, inept, and unprofitable.
