Timothy Clark is a specialist in Romantic and post-Romantic poetics , based at Durham University .Many critics consider Martin Heidegger the most influential , elusive and controversial figure in modern poetics and criticism . However , few students of literature have been directed to his writings on art and poetry. This volume offers such students a bridge to this crucial work. Timothy Clark immerses readers in a new way of thinking, approaching Heideggerian ideas on the limits of 'theory' and of Western thought, his history of being, the origin and death of art, language, literature and poetics . He also covers the controversy of Heidegger 's Nazi involvement .
