Yves Bonnefoy and Jean-Luc Nancy

Ontological Performance

Emily McLaughlin

Oxford Modern Languages and Literature Monographs

  • A significant new interpretation of Bonnefoy's oeuvre that argues that the most significant poetic developments occur in his lesser studied later texts (1975-2016)
  • Offers close readings of poems that haven't previously been analysed in detail and casts new light on how Bonnefoy's poems actively dramatise their own physical dynamics of emergence
  • Reads Bonnefoy's poetry in the light of Jean-Luc Nancy's philosophy to provide a new interpretation of Bonnefoy's later work
