Product Overview

This is the first book-length study of the literary dimensions of Voegelin''s philosophy--and the first to use his philosophy to read specific novels. Embry focuses on two key elements of Voegelin''s philosophy as important for reading literature: metaxy, the in-between of human consciousness, and metalepsis, human participation in the community of being. He shows how Voegelin''s philosophy in general is rooted in literary-symbolic interpretation and, therefore, provides a foundation for the interpretation of literature. And finally he explores Voegelin''s insistence that the soundness of literary criticism lies in the consciousness of the reader. Embry then offers Voegelinian readings that vividly illustrate the principles of this approach, including readings of "Waterland, The Demons, " and "The Violent Bear It Away."
