Book - 1994
Rate this:
Siemerling (English, Harvard U.) examines alterity in the work of four postmodern authors, exploring the self and other as textual figures of the unknown, and offers a critical consideration of theories of alterity and subjectivity relevant to current postcolonial theorizing. He considers Cohen and the aesthetics of loss, language and legitimation in Aquin, temptations of identity in the work of Ondaatje, and the utopian form in the work of Brossard.
