A Limbo of Shards: Essays on Memory, Myth and Metaphor

A Limbo of Shards: Essays on Memory, Myth and Metaphor by Dennis P. Slattery


A Limbo of Shards: Essays on Memory, Myth and Metaphor (2007) gathers essays on these large themes and arranges them chronologically over a period that spans over two decades. Combining both formal essays on literature, myth and culture, most of which appeared in journals or books, with more popular accounts of everyday occurrences, the author reveals two corridors of writing: academic and occasional or popular forms of expression.

As theologian Peter Phan observes in the Foreword: “Reading A Limbo of Shards is to journey from the inferno through purgatorio to the paradiso of human experience. It is a literary, psychological, and spiritual catharsis of the imagination.”
