Frank Kermode is one of our most distinguished critics of English literature. Here, he contributes a new epilogue to his collection of classic lectures on the relationship of fiction to age-old concepts of apocalyptic chaos and crisis. Prompted by the approach of the millennium, he revisits the book which brings his highly concentrated insights to bear on some of the most unyielding philosophical and aesthetic enigmas. Examining the works of writers from Plato to William Burrows, Kermode shows how they have persistently imposed their "fictions" upon the face of eternity and how these have reflected the apocalyptic spirit. Kermode then discusses literature at a time when new fictive explanations, as used by Spenser and Shakespeare, were being devised to fit a world of uncertain beginning and end. He goes on to deal perceptively with modern literature with "traditionalists" such as Yeats, Eliot, and Joyce, as well as contemporary "schismatics," the French "new novelists," and such seminal figures as Jean-Paul Sartre and Samuel Beckett. Whether weighing the difference between modern and earlier modes of apocalyptic thought, considering the degeneration of fiction into myth, or commenting on the vogue of the Absurd, Kermode is distinctly lucid, persuasive, witty, and prodigal of ideas.

Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2011 Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is in middle age. He's had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He's certainly never

Julian Barnes's novel, The Sense of an Ending, follows his autobiographical meditation on mortality, Nothing to be Frightened Of, in offering a dystopian view of the meaningfulness of existence ("what it all adds up to") in the face of an ending that amounts to annihilation, for the self and ultimately for the cosmos. In this he follows Frank Kermode's elegant study in the theory of fiction, The Sense of an Ending, in which Kermode traces the fate of the modern

Fin de siécle: the phrase evokes at once a sense of decadence, deviant sexuality, and fears that history is coming to an end. For gays, the ends of centuries carry an even greater fear of real endings as they contemplate the Oscar Wilde trials of 1895 and the onset of AIDS just a decade ago. By considering apocalyptic thinking and crises in masculine representation together, Richard Dellamora lets us see what was--and is--at stake in the fin de siécle
