Alchemization of the Mind
Literature and Dissociation
©2003 Edited Collection 208 Pages
Series: Literary and Cultural Theory, Volume 13
Ever since the Renaissance urge to modernize enforced irreverent reading of ancient and classical texts, the European mind resisted complete secularization. The new dissociated sensibility followed the processes of formal as well as conceptual alchemization. The papers collected in this volume map a wide range of cultural and literary discourses, from Reformation theology to reader-response criticism to modern fiction.
