A landmark work of literary criticism by one of the foremost interpreters of nineteenth-century England, The Disappearance of God confronts the consciousness of an absent (though perhaps still existent) God in the writings of Thomas De Quincey, Robert Browning, Emily Bronte, Matthew Arnold, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. J. Hillis Miller surveys the intellectual and material developments that conspired to cut man off from God -- among other factors the city, developments within Christianity, subjectivism, and the emergence of the modern historical sense -- and shows how each writer's body of work reflects a sustained response to the experience of God's disappearance.

Industry Reviews

"Miller's study combines great learning and sensitive reading of the texts... [A] fine example of humane scholarship." -- Virginia Quarterly Review "An original and searching work... [Miller] grapples seriously with the real, living issues with which nineteenth-century writers were concerned." -- A. Dwight Culler, Yale Review ADVANCE PRAISE "The Disappearance of God is without doubt one of the most penetrating and original works of criticism to appear in this country for quite a while." -- Paul De Man in Critical Writings, 1953-78
