Sebald's Dissecting Table: Subverting Cartesian Rigidity in The Rings of Saturn
Kelvin Knight has recently completed a PhD in Literature at the University of East Anglia. His thesis looks to restore Michel Foucault's concept of the heterotopia to its literary origins and to examine its changing status as a literary motif through the fiction of James Joyce, Vladimir Nabokov, and W.G. Sebald.
