Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Deleuze and American Literatureexpertly spins a unique weave of concepts for the analysis of the novel. Affect, event, force, singularity, the outside, and the virtual. These concepts interlace and vary to generate a series of refreshingly original readings of nineteenth and twentieth century authors revolving around the notion of the 'nonhuman.' Provocatively, it is from this notion that Bourassa draws his theory of character. The tension between the 'humanity' of the novelistic character and its 'nonhuman' conditions of literary emergence unfolds into an extended meditation on the difference between morality and ethics, playing out in particular around issues of race and gender. A masterful contribution to literary theory and the philosophy of the novel."Brian Massumi, University of Montreal and author ofParables for the Virtual. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Deleuze and American Literature re-examines authors like Wharton, Ellison, Faulkner, and McCarthy by opening their work to the problematic and ever-evolving philosophy of Gilles Deleuze. This book questions how the idea of the human in the American novel is surrounded, penetrated, and recreated by a philosophy of the nonhuman. This groundbreaking scholarship offers a challenge to the conventional methodology of cultural studies and engages American literature with its own defining problematic. This is an encounter from which both Deleuze and American literature are sure to emerge transformed.
