(p.309) Conclusion
The Absurd in Literature

Neil Cornwell

Manchester University Press

This concluding chapter summarises the discussion on the four ‘special author’ representatives of absurdism that were presented in previous chapters. It emphasises that the term ‘absurd’ can be applied to literature in three ways, namely: as a prominent period style, as a category with philosophical implications and as a modern reworking of much older works. The chapter also describes how one can study the absurd in literature.

Keywords:   absurdism, special author representatives, literary absurd, period style, philosophical implications, modern reworking
