This book focuses on Alain Badiou and Gilles Deleuze's reading of literature. It suggests that literature plays a crucial role in the contents of philosophers' respective positions and attempts to describe the authors' style, their use of rhetoric, and their taste for metaphor and/or narrative. The book explains that Badiou and Deleuze are two of the most important contemporary philosophers, and contends that the best way to enter the (non-)relation then is through the way they read literature.

Keywords:   Alain Badiou, Gilles Deleuze, literature, reading, philosophers, rhetoric, metaphor, narrative
