Conrad, Faulkner, and the Problem of NonSense - download pdf or read online

By Maurice Ebileeni

Maurice Ebileeni explores the thematic and stylistic difficulties within the significant novels of Joseph Conrad and William Faulkner via Jacques Lacan's psychoanalytic theories. opposed to the historical past of the cultural, medical, and old adjustments that happened on the flip of the twentieth century, describing the panorama of ruins bequeathed to humanists by means of the forefathers of the Counter-Enlightenment move (Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Dostoyevsky, and Baudelaire), Ebileeni proposes that Conrad and Faulkner wrote opposed to very unlikely odds, metaphorically status on the fringe of a chaotic abyss that at the beginning might spill over into the demanding situations of literary creation. either authors came across that beneath, in the back of, or in the intuitively understandable narrative layers there exists a nonsensical measurement, continually threatening to dissolve any try at generating intelligible that means.

Ebileeni argues that during Conrad's and Faulkner's significant novels, the search for that means in confronting the customers of nonsense turns into an important symptom of human adventure to either steer clear of and have interaction the entropy of contemporary life.
