This book sets out to provide a new understanding of the nexus between the literary world and contemporary communication (iPhone et al.) in all its facets -- not Marshall McLuhan's "The medium is the message", but a new formula: "The medium is the maker". In this exploration of the medium -- traditional, modern, post-modern -- Miller engages with Browning, Freud, and Derrida to provide a platform of personal discovery and literary enlightenment (at times solemn, ironic, comic, and occasionally devastating).
Buy Medium is the Maker book by J. Hillis Miller from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
