New Book by BW Powe it is now available

 Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye: Apocalypse and Alchemy

Book“An entirely fresh view of McLuhan and Frye, the great Orator and the great Theorist, as exuberant visionaries who breached the future in tandem during their years teaching at the University of Toronto. Powe’s scholarship is marked by a distinctive ease and clarity of style rooted in a rigorous reading of all the pertinent texts.”
Barry Callaghan, editor-in-chief, 
Exile: The Literary Quarterly

Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye: Apocalypse and Alchemy is a powerful study in literary theory and philosophy, written by a scholar with intimate knowledge and understanding of these twin giants of the 20th century intellectual landscape. This highly original work provides us with a dialectic between systems of thought that leads to a synthesis of unequivocal significance, or perhaps more properly, a portrait of polar oppositions that is mediated in a manner that is not only balanced and harmonious, but altogether magical.”
Lance Strate, Department of Communication and Media Studies, Fordham University, and author of Echoes and ReflectionsOn the Binding Biases of Time, and Amazing Ourselves to Death

Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye is the first book to thoroughly address the uncanny relation between these two great Canadian thinkers in a systematic way. B.W. Powe shows a deep knowledge of both McLuhan’s and Frye’s works, as well as of their critics.”
Elena Lamberti, Department of Foreign Languages and Literature, University of Bologna
