Abstract:
This thesis reads the work of the twentieth-century German-Jewish philosopher, Walter Benjamin alongside two contemporary American writers – David Markson and Teju Cole, and one poet, Susan Howe. Taking Benjamin’s notion of afterlife, or Nachleben, as my conceptual framework, I argue that David Markson, Susan Howe, and Teju Cole constitute contemporary ‘afterlives’ of Walter Benjamin.
