Caesura—Journal of Philological and Humanistic Studies

 

Special Issue: “The Experience of Literature”

 

Guest Editor: Peter Mathews (Hanyang University)

 

Caesura is putting together a special issue on the topic of “the experience of literature.”

 

This special issue considers the way in which literature is experienced, whether by readers, authors, or characters, in fiction or in theory. Often, encountering literature is portrayed as a life-changing moment or turning-point, but this is not necessarily the case – indeed, essays exploring the resistance to literature’s effects, or even a total lack of receptivity to it, are especially welcome.

Parlour Issue 4: Toni Morrison, Violence, and Domestic Space

 

“She rolled a bit of newspaper into a tight stick about six inches long, lit it and threw it onto the bed where the kerosene-soaked Plum lay in snug delight. Quickly, as the whoosh of flames engulfed him, she shut the door and made her slow and painful journey back to the top of the house” (Morrison, Sula).
