The first book-length study of Norman O. Brown, The Resurrection of the Body brings an order beyond "Western Culture" to the subjects that make up Brown's field of engagement, subjects as diverse as Classical Studies, Philosophy, Philology, Psychoanalysis, Theology, Literature, History, and Marxism. For Brown, each of these subjects is in a very real sense an emanation of the body; that is, Western Culture is the body's attempt to resurrect itself. Examining Brown's works from Hermes the Thief to Closing Time, David Greenham illuminates Brown's fascinating signature style of collage, quotation, and comment. This book also seeks to redress the balance between Brown and his more celebrated contemporary Herbert Marcuse. The Resurrection of the Body is essential reading for any Norman O. Brown scholar.
