The Modern Sublime

Posted by whughes on November 23, 2010 in Guest Blog tagged with , , , , ,

This one arises out of a conversation which I’ve just had with a colleague regarding contemporary theories of the Sublime. He and I both concur that the Burkean Sublime remains very much with us, possibly in part because of the place it occupies in University teaching. We’ve discussed the implications of the numinous, Mishra, and some practical examples, but wonder who the rest of the world would advance as the rising theorists of sublimity. Anyone care to start the ball rolling?
