Product Description

Product Description


A set of signals has been pulsing, repeating, modulating in the airspace of literature...

This essay is an invitation to listen to those signals, as they travel through and shape the work of Aeschylus and Ovid, Rilke, Conrad, Burroughs, Joyce and others. To retune our idea of what a writer does, of what the very act of writing 'is'. To rethink literature itself along the lines of transmission and reception, signal and noise...

Listen: two times. I repeat...

Message ends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tom McCarthy on Transmission of Information 18 Mar 2013
By Pfritz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Tom McCarthy's books, especially _C_. He has some interesting ideas on how information is affected and changed by its mode of dissemination -- its transmission. This is not my field of expertise, but I suspect that anyone who is seriously interested in this subject, someone for whom Marshall McLuhan's work, for instance, would be just one point of entry, would regard this work as just a dalliance. But it's a 20 minute read and it does shed some light on McCarthy's thinking as it pertains to his novels.
