Allegory and the Work of Literature

Brenda Machosky

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Lays out a completely new approach to allegory, based on phenomenology.
  • A strongly philosophical reading of major traditional literary texts (Prudentius, Dante, Spenser, Hegel, Goethe, and Kafka) that draws in imaginative ways, influenced by strands of German thought not usually represented in the U.S., on the philosophy of Benjamin, Blanchot, and Levinas.
