While Giorgio Agamben is most widely known for his political philosophy, at least a third of his output is dedicated to unique, technical and revelatory readings of literature. Indeed, it is impossible to fully understand Agambens overall movement towards a Messianic philosophy to come without knowledge of the role of poetry in his ontology.

The Literary Agamben considers the totality of Agambens detailed and varied work on literature and poiesis. Organised around three areas, language, poiesis and modernity, the book explains Agambens theory of literary singularity in all its complexity.

William Watkin details Agambens particular ontological take on linguistics, works through Agambens definition of poetry as the tension between semantic and semiotic, and engages with Agambens aggressive yet insightful critique of modern art as productively nihilistic. The book presents Agambens overall conception of poiesis and its relevancy to future readings in literature, as well as an understanding of how poiesis forms the crucial third part of Agambens overall philosophical system alongside the more widely disseminated terms exception and potentiality.

The Philosophy, Aesthetics and Cultural Theory series examines the encounter between contemporary Continental philosophy and aesthetic and cultural theory. Each book in the series explores an exciting new direction in philosophical aesthetics or cultural theory, identifying the most important and pressing issues in Continental philosophy today.
