Books By Author Shane Weller
Modernist Eroticisms, Hardback (September 2012)
This volume explores the impact of sexological and early psychoanalytic conceptions of sexual perversion on the representation of the erotic in the work of a range of major European modernists (including Joyce, Kafka, Lawrence, Mann, Proust and Rilke) as well as in that of some less-well-known figures of the period such as Dujardin and Jahnn.
Modernism and Nihilism, Hardback (December 2010)
Focusing on a wide range of philosophers and writers, from Nietzsche to Derrida and Flaubert to Borges, this book charts the history of the deployment of the concept of nihilism within the discourses of philosophical and aesthetic modernism and considers the similarities and differences between modernist and postmodernist approaches to nihilism.
Beckett, Literature and the Ethics of Alterity, Hardback (May 2006)» View all books by Shane Weller
Beckett's oeuvre has been deployed as exemplary of the affirmation of an alterity that resists dialectical mastery and makes possible a post-metaphysical ethics. This book views through an analysis of the interrelated topics of translation, comedy, and gender that to read Beckett in this way is to miss the strangely 'anethical' nature of his work.
