DescriptionThis study compares the substantial literary projects of Michel Leiris and Hubert Fichte, and examines how they overstep theoretical prescriptions in their explorations of the self. Throughout the book, the author contends that for Leiris and Fichte alike, life and writing become mutually defining over the protracted progressions of their self-scrutiny.
