The Elusive Macrostructure of the Apocalypse of John

Full Product Description

The author applies Umberto Eco's literary theory of the open work to the perennial problem of the literary macrostructure of the Apocalypse. Revisiting the complexities of its genre, intertextuality, language and communication, he cumulatively traces all indications of literary openness in Revelation. Then the book discusses the extraordinarily diverse scholarly approaches and analyses from this viewpoint. As a result, John's multiple and varied structural signals are recognised as demonstrably clustered within specific subsections - complex transitions creating a specifically open literary arrangement. More generally, the wider concept of literary openness is offered as a theoretical framework applicable to the specific complexities of some apocalyptic writings.

The Elusive Macrostructure of the Apocalypse of John by Horst Friedrich Rolly; Roman Mach was published by Peter Lang AG in January 2016. The ISBN for The Elusive Macrostructure of the Apocalypse of John is 9783631669846.
