Philology

In Philology of the Flesh Hamilton investigates a range of poetic enterprises and theoretical reflections that engage in incarnational metaphors of language, from the fifteenth-century humanism of Lorenzo Valla to the poetry of Emily Dickinson, from Immanuel Kant and Johann Georg Hamann to Friedrich Nietzsche, Franz Kafka, and Paul Celan, tracing an insistence that invites us to rethink our relation to the concrete languages in which we think and live.
