Poetics of Naming by George Melnyk
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Literary historian and scholar George Melnyk engages the dynamic between truth, language, and personal identity. His intent is to take the reader to the limits of language and meaning, to face the wordless reality language tries to describe, and then to bring the reader back in a textual journey that confronts the personal and social dimensions of naming.
