Reviews

'A superb collection. The essays are original, provocative interventions across a range of live debates. Combined with the editor's concise essays on the distinct traditions and subfields, they provide readers with a lucid entry into the complex relations between philosophy and literature, demonstrating anew how neither can do without the other. A must for students and scholars alike.' - Dr. Michael John Kooy, Senior Lecturer, Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, University of Warwick, UK
