Jensen Suther is a former Fulbright Scholar and PhD candidate in Comparative Literature at Yale. Through a novel synthesis of Hegel and Marx, his first book project — Spirit Disfigured — pursues a new reading of the modernist novel as a distinctly literary attempt to grapple with the contradictions of the modern commitment to freedom. His most recent publications include “Hegel’s Logic of Freedom” in the Review of Metaphysics and “Freedom on Trial: Kafka’s Modernist Tragedy,” forthcoming in Modernism/modernity.
