The author claims that, after Cavell\'s celebrated reading of King Lear turned into a nightmarish meditation on Vietnam, he found a more audible voice. Noting that Cavell\'s keen ear for the expressive power of ordinary language makes him both a first-rate literary artist and a compelling philosopher of the everyday, he catches what holds Cavell\'s manifold interests together. Here the poetry of ideas and presence of mind that animate Cavell\'s writing receive readings attuned to the spirit of their composition and its enlivening powers.\"--Publisher\'s website.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"This book states that, after Cavell\'s celebrated reading of \'King Lear\' turned into a nightmarish meditation on Vietnam, he found a more audible voice.
