The Limits of Voice Montaigne, Schlegel, Kafka


The Limits of Voice Montaigne, Schlegel, Kafka by Luiz de Franca Costa Lima Neto

Through detailed readings of Montaigne, Schlegel, and Kafka, this book answers a challenge that has persisted in literary theory and literary history for almost two decades-how to historicize the concept of literature.


'There is nothing complacent about this book which demonstrates the kind of scholarship that a critic of long exper ience will bring to bear on an object of intense study. Luiz Costa-Lima's non European perspectives provide a much-needed and informed view on a key epoch of Western literary history.'
