9780415261258: On Literature (Thinking in Action)

Debates rage over what kind of literature we should read, what is good and bad literature, and whether in the global, digital age, literature even has a future. But what exactly is literature? Why should we read literature? How do we read literature? These are some of the important questions J. Hillis Miller answers in this beautifully written and passionate book. He begins by asking what literature is, arguing that the answer lies in literature's ability to create an imaginary world simply with words. On Literature also asks the crucial question of why literature has such authority over us. Returning to Plato, Aristotle and the Bible, Miller argues we should continue to read literature because it is part of our basic human need to create imaginary worlds and to have stories. Above all, On Literature is a plea that we continue to read and care about literature.

About the Author:

J. Hillis Miller is Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at the University of California, Irvine, where he has been since 1986. He is the author of several well-known books, including The Ethics of Reading, Theory Now and Then (1991) and Ariadne's Thread (1992).

Review:

"The task of "On Literature is not the banal one of attempting to recapture 'the literary' in the face of technological encroachments, but a more ambitious effort to establish the parameters of our response to these imagined, fictive, virtual realms.."
-Brian Dillon, TLS
