About this book

The Event of Style in Literature brings discussions about the question of style up-to-date by schematising the principal issues relating to the topic through a critical overview of the canon of style studies. It reads the work of Jacques Derrida, Maurice Blanchot, and Hans-Georg Gadamer as groundbreaking and 'eventful' interventions.

Reviews

“Aquilina’s work is measured and insightful, offering clear readings of Gadamer, Blanchot, and Derrida, and presenting astute expositions of poststructuralist theories on writing through the lens of style. … Aquilina’s work provides an engaging study and a valuable resource through which to continue the exploration of writing and style.” (Maebh Long, CounterText, Vol. 2 (1), April, 2016)

“The Event of Style in Literature demonstrates how style is at the heart of the matter … . Aquilina’s reading of style exhibits lucidity even as it sheds light on the dimly-lit corners that a nuanced engagement with style must certainly contend with. This study not only engages with style in a thorough and rigorous manner, but it also engages the reader, who is continuously shown to be ‘structurally inherent in style as an event’ … .” (Elsa Fiott, antae, Vol. 2 (1), March, 2015)
