Literature cultivates 'deep selves' for whom books matter because they take over from religion fundamental questions about the meaning of existence. This volume embraces and questions this perspective, whilst also developing a 'new humanist' critical vocabulary which specifies, and therefore opens to debate, the human significance of literature.

'This book stands out as an intervention in post-poststructuralist debates, alongside the 'new aesthetics', 'singularities', the 'new ethics', and other efforts to formulate the critical trajectories of the new millennium, and will have a significant impact on the way literary studies will shape its theoretical debates in the near future.' - Tim Woods, Professor in English and American Studies, Aberystwyth University, UK
