• Joel Blechinger deposited William H. Gass’ The Tunnel: Three New Critical Avenues on Humanities Commons 1 week, 2 days ago

    This undergraduate honours thesis explores American writer William H. Gass’ “The Tunnel” (1995), positing that the notoriously dense and difficult work can be interpreted through three new critical avenues: as a Leibnizian monad, in dialogue with Tadeusz Borowski’s short-story collection “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” (1946/1967), and as engaging with issues central to the historiographical theories of Johan Gottfried von Herder and Leopold von Ranke.
