In The Genesis of Secrecy Frank Kermode treats secrecy as a kind of will to be
interpreted in all narrative. Feminist critics like Adrienne Rich, Gayle Greene, and
Coppélia Kahn, among others, are interested in the silences and gaps in the text
that indicate women's experience.” Sedgwick claims that secrecy in Western
culture invariably points to the homosexual secret, and it was this claim that drew
the most flak from critics." In East European culture in the Soviet period the major
axis ...

... or damn life by showing it to be the same kind of painted sham as art? For the
late Nietzsche 'life' is too privileged a category for there to be much doubt which
way the argument will go: put the same point in the hands of Frank Kermode and
doubts, as chilly as they are no doubt salutary, come seeping in. The main line of
argument in The Genesis of Secrecy is easily grasped. Literary criticism, in so far
as its methods involve pursuing, by means of paraphrase and explanatory gloss,

In The Genesis of Secrecy, Frank Kermode wonders why narratives are basically
obscure. He comes to the conclusion that all stories are properlv and "essentiallv
dark" (45), radiating only intimations of meaning. For Kermode, the greatest
narratives operate on at least two levels simultaneously. They must "proclaim a
truth as a herald does and at the same time conceal truth like an oracle" (47).
Fiction that partially conceals its meaning in this way is filled with "inexhaustible ...

Revelation could have been composed in 93-96, during Domitian's reign of terror
against Roman Christians. The Gospel of Mark is utterly unlike anyone's
expectations, a surprise beautifully analyzed by Frank Kermode in The Genesis
of Secrecy (1979) as a dark, riddling, severe narrative. I sense what the other
Gospel authors want me to believe, but not Mark. What or who does he regard
