MEDIA REVIEWS

"Working with and yet also moving beyond Lyotard's philosophy, this provocative, wide-ranging and innovative work of literary theory makes challenging and timely arguments about literature in relation to politics, ethics, suffering and finally - silence." - Robert Eaglestone, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

'Sawyer's work is a necessary and lyrical account (and calling-to-account) of literature in the face of Lyotard's differend. It is both deeply personal and critically alert, offering a nuanced and sustained negotiation with Lyotard and his philosophy in relation to

literature, its subjects, and what remains, after all, unsaid.' Will Slocombe, University of Liverpool, UK
