ANTAE - A Postgraduate Journal on the Interspaces of English Studies

'While we talk, the sun is getting older. It will explode in 4.5 billion years.'
Jean François Lyotard, 'Can Thought Go on Without a Body?'

'living on can mean a reprieve or an afterlife, "life after life" or life after death, more life as more than life, and better; the state of suspension in which it's over - and over again'
Jacques Derrida, 'Living On: Borderlines'

'Whether my life had been before that sleep
The Heaven which I imagine, or a Hell
Like this harsh world in which I wake to weep,
I know not'
Percy Bysshe Shelley, 'The Triumph of Life'
