Details

Illuminating Darkness brings together ten approaches to the themes, styles and genres of that which (allegedly) baffles the routines of language, knowledge and perception. This volume permits us to see how literature has formulated fictions and philosophies of nothing through myths, rhetorical devices and different languages of negation and affirmation. The writers analysed here cover various languages and periods of European and Nordic literature.
