The Art Of Distances
Ethical Thinking In Twentieth-Century European Literature
de Corina Stan
Sobre o livro
Identifies an insistent preoccupation with interpersonal distance in a strand of twentieth-century European and Anglophone literature that includes the work of George Orwell, Elias Canetti, Iris Murdoch, Walter Benjamin, Gunter Grass, and Damon Galgut. Corina Stan demonstrates that these authors reimagined how people can live together and provided alternative ways of thinking about community.
