About this product
- DescriptionThis multidisciplinary collection brings together scholars from the fields of literature, theology and linguistics who question and extend our taken-for-granted conceptions of The End. It focuses on the ways in which endings are formally signaled in literature, and sets these alongside parallel studies in journalism and film. However, it is also concerned with larger philosophical and historical tions of closure, impermanence, rupture and apocalypse as well as the possibilities of posthumous being. It gives examples from fairytales, Byron, Longfellow, Dillard, Barnes and South African writers.
