Humanist (Re)Turn: Reclaiming the Self in Literature

Publisher: Taylor and Francis Release date: 2019-07-31

Description

The exciting new book argues for a renewed emphasis on humanism--contrary to the trend of post-humanism, or what Neema Parvini calls "e;the anti-humanism"e; of the last several decades of literary and theoretical scholarship. In this trail-blazing study, Michael Bryson argues for this renewal of perspective by covering literature written in different languages, times, and places, calling for a return to a humanism, which focuses on literary characters and their psychological and existential struggles-not struggles of competition, but of connection, the struggles of fragmented, incomplete individuals for integration, wholeness, and unity.
