A striking illumination of romantic texts and their theoretical foundations, Leaves of Mourning will compel vigorous responses from the contiguous c...(Read More)

From Rimbaud to Heidegger
Marc Froment-Meurice - Author

The author reads Rimbaud, Mallarme. Holderlin, and Trakl in relation to philosophy, and in particular to Heidegger.

His work will be of importance to more than one constituency; scholars in ...(Read More)

To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne (December 1994)

Nature, Poetry, and Childhood Memory
Louise Chawla - Author

"I have a great respect for the way in which Dr. Chawla has been able to address and integrate a diverse set of literatures--environmental psychology, developmental psychology, phenomenology, literature and literary criticism, nature studies, and feminist theory. I am not surprised at the breadth of her insights because she has been so clear about her hermeneutic and phenomenological approach to the questions about childhood memories, nature, and d...(Read More)
