About this title:

Synopsis: The Lives of Texts: Exploring the Metaphor examines various instances of textual subsistence implied by the title. Drawing on a parallel between text and a living organism, the contributors analyze various literary texts ranging from the Middle Ages to postmodernity as well as film adaptations and the graphic novel. Apart from the works of canonical writers, attention is also drawn to some long-forgotten authors along with the most recent instances of popular literature and culture. The exploration of the title metaphor allows the contributors to trace life-like phenomena (e.g. textual birth, maturation, dissemination, death and resurrection) in the texts of writers so remote from each other as Layamon, Thomas More, Mary Shelley, Charles Williams, Ursula Le Guin, A. S. Byatt, Peter Ackroyd, Iain Banks, J. K. Rowling, or Neil Gaiman.

About the Author: Katarzyna Pisarska is Assistant Professor of English Literature at Maria-Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland. She is the author of articles and book chapters on contemporary British and American fiction, Iain Banks's novels, and dystopian cinema. Andrzej Slawomir Kowalczyk is Assistant Professor of English Literature at Maria-Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland.
