A pioneering attempt to relate the theory of literary fiction to a more general theory of fiction, using fictions of apocalypse as a model. This pioneering exploration of the relationship of fiction to age-old conceptions of chaos and crisis offers many new insights into some of the most unyielding philosophical and aesthetic enigmas. Examining the works of a wide range of writers from Pato to William Burroughs, Kermode demonstrates how writers have persistently imposed their 'fictions' upon the face of eternity and how these have reflected the apocalyptic spirit.
