This volume presents eleven new essays that reveal how significant nineteenth-and twentieth-century writers have drawn from, and in some cases, opposed major trends in philosophy. Essays in this collection deal with Tennyson, Coleridge, Woolf, Faulkner, De Quincey, Beckett, romance as a genre, the state of contemporary literary theory as shaped by the writings of Wittgenstein, Ricoeur and Derrida, and other topics.
