Beyond Time and Memory: An Exploration of the Fiction of Gene Wolfe, 1987 to 1990

Marc Aramini

Beyond Time and Memory is the second volume in a comprehensive analysis of Gene Wolfe’s literary works, presenting the thesis that objective closure is possible in even Wolfe’s most complicated cosmological and metaphysical narratives and attempting to make the mysteries behind the ideas and images ultimately comprehensible.

This series is not only a holistic illustration of Wolfe’s work, but attempts to solve many of the narrative mysteries that have eluded readers for decades. Containing focused essays on the novels  and story analyses that identify allusions and themes, respecting authorial intent and taking a rigorous and logical approach to reading Wolfe, the book is part of an enormous commitment to understanding the work of one of modern literature’s most unique and challenging figures.

The novels covered in this volume are Soldier of the Mist and Soldier of AreteThe Urth of the New Sun, There Are Doors, Pandora by Holly Hollander, and Castleview.  The short stories include the surreal “All the Hues of Hell”, “Empires of Foliage and Flower”, the exotic “Tale of the Rose and the Nightingale”, the eldritch “Lord of the Land”, the apocalyptic “The Haunted Boardinghouse”.   An appendix deals with the poetry of Gene Wolfe, collected in For Rosemary.
