This study seeks to present a non-Romantic theory of literature and an alternative account of literary production, examining the philosophical bases of underlying assumptions related to Modernist and Romantic currents in literature. The first half of book develops an ontology of the literary, drawing on the ideas of philosophers Blanchot, Deleuze, Gilbert Simondon, and Pierre Macherey. The second half offers close readings of Samuel BeckettAEs postwar trilogy (Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnameable), Marcel ProustAEs A la recherche du temps perdu, and Gertrude SteinAEs The Making of Americans.
