By Horace Engdahl

'Beröringens ABC'' är en essä om rösten i litteraturen: den tysta stämma som gör sig påmind vid läsningen och säger oss hur det skrivna är menat. Vad är denna effekt, utan vilken texten vore en hop döda bokstäver? I en studie som börjar i den tyska romantikens 1790-tal - Goethe, Schlegel, Novalis - och slutar hos det sena 1900-talets solitärer - Beckett, Ekelöf, Blanchot - visar Horace Engdahl hur den moderna diktkonsten kan beskrivas som en everlasting males föränderlig kris i förhållandet mellan skrivandet och den mänskliga stämman. Dramatiska höjdpunkter i denna historia är until eventually exempel Stendhals beslut att rikta sig until en publik som inte existerar och futurismens megafonrop på jagets utplåning ur dikten. until slut blir det tydligt att litteraturen gått framåt i en cirkel kring det som den måste sakna, males som den ändå låter oss beröras av.
