The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature
Edited by Michael Bryson
Reasons for Writing/Overview of Argument
In the wake of his recent book The Humanist (Re)Turn (Routledge 2019), Michael Bryson (see editor’s note at the end) is putting together an edited collection (now under contract at Routledge) re-assessing and re-asserting the value of Humanism in a posthumanist critical environment. The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature will include contributions from around the world while aiming at reformulated working definitions of Humanism as a response to an increasingly troubled age.
