The Child to Come

University of Minnesota Press

The third chapter works through an extended reading of Cormac McCarthy’s 2006 novel The Road. It explores the way that post apocalyptic narratives engender a split figuration of the salvific child against the uncannily impersonal Earth--or what is called, alongside Luce Irigaray, the revelation of the chora behind the veil of the oikos.
