The Unfinished Book

Edited by Alexandra Gillespie and Deidre Lynch

Oxford Twenty-First Century Approaches to Literature

  • Demonstrates how much book history has to gain from engaging the most vital and innovative literary-critical modes of the 21st-century.
  • Thinks expansively about the history and nature of the book, assessing a remarkably diverse variety of book types and book cultures from a broad range of methodological perspectives.
  • Provides a new account of the book's defining unfinishedness, highlighting the provisionality and dynamism that have made and make the conceptual boundaries of the book indistinct and variable.
  • Showcases new work and new questions, identifying debates about books' nature, affordances, and ends.
