It begins with a theoretical analysis---via Deleuze, Spinoza and Leibniz---of the concept of thinking in literature, and sets out three principal elements as crucial to the process of developing an aesthetic expression: relation, sensation, and composition. Uhlmann then examines the aesthetic practice of three major Modernist writers: Joyce, Woolf, and Nabokov. Each can be understood as working with relation, sensation and composition, yet each emphasizes the interrelations between them in differing ways in expressing the potentials for thinking in literature."@en ;
