Excerpt from said dissertation:
"As we have seen, the consummation of history and imagination (or memory and invention) has given birth to a literature called 'liminal' that both legitimizes and necessitates a liminal approach to the study of it. This is a new perspective within an established literary philosophy (insofar as such a young methodology can be said to be established) – not simply the analysis of marginal literature or margins in literature, but a philosophy that seeks to validate the limen as a place, a literary hinterland, not unlike the worlds in Einstein’s Dreams, in which the properties of time and space are altered, perception follows suit, and the rigid boundaries between imagination and experience fluctuate and dissolve into the territory of the other. Speculative fact, then, rather than speculative fiction.
Here, both the reader and writer of literary works may discover meaning far beyond a singular narrative representation, beneath the language, behind the thought and well above a common notion of truth, in an act of imagination that precipitates illumination."
