About the Author:

Davide Stimilli is Associate Professor of German and Comparative Literature at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the author of Fisionomia di Kafka.

Review:

"Stimilli develops new and stimulating interpretations of the once-influential discourse and imagery of physiognomy and the face in the Western tradition. Physiognomy has been a much-debated subject in cultural and literary studies in the past ten years; the ethical dimension in Levinas and Derrida is currently the subject of an intense debate. Bringing these two topics together is certainly of great interest for literary scholars as well as for those interested in philosophy."
