Principles of an aesthetics of death

Principes d’une esthétique de la mort by Michel Guiomar

And just when you think you’ve seen everything, a book manages to come out of nowhere and amaze you. Today, at the Antwerp book store Demian, I bought Principes d’une esthétique de la mort, les modes de présences, les présences immédiates, le seuil de l’Au-delà, a book essay by French writer Michel Guiomar, published in 1967 by French cult publisher José Corti. The book has not been translated to English, a possible translation of the title is Principles of an aesthetics of death. The book extensively references jahsonic favourite Gaston Bachelard.

    It’s odd that in “Le double” Dostojevski’s “The Double” isn’t mentioned. For it is an excellent example of a double that appears to be real but is actually psychologic.

    By the way: Is there something wrong with the layout? Or is it me?

    In general, William Wilson is held in higher regard then St. Peterburg, a Poem. William Wilson was earlier too, perhaps that is the reason.

    I see nothing wrong with the layout. Does the problem persist?
