not yet rated|write a review
Gilles Deleuze's writing is permeated with references to literature. Deleuze repeatedly asserted that he was not a literary critic, and yet he provides exhilarating and brilliantly original interactions with literary texts. This study sets up in-depth encounters between Deleuze's thought and some of the writers who fascinated him (T.E. Lawrence, Melville, D.H. Lawrence, Tournier, Beckett). Using travel as a transversal theme, the book demonstrates the productivity of a Deleuzian frame of reference when applied to literary texts.
