The Poetics of Space PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Poetics of Space free pdf Beloved and contemplated by philosophers, architects, writers, and literary theorists alike, Bachelard's lyrical, landmark work examines the places in which we place our conscious and unconscious thoughts and guides us through a stream of cerebral meditations on poetry, art, and the blooming of consciousness itself. Houses and rooms- cellars and attics- drawers, chests and wardrobes- nests and shells- nooks and corners: no space is too vast or too small to be filled by our thoughts and our reveries. With an introduction by acclaimed philosopher Richard Kearney and a foreword by author Mark Z. Danielewski.

His work has influenced intellectual titans like Foucault, Merleau-Ponty, Deleuze and Althusser. Mark Z. Danielewski is best known for his striking debut novel, House of Leaves. Richard Kearney is the Charles B. Seelig Chair of Philosophy at Boston College.
