Epiphany presents a significant alternative to traditional models of linking the eye, the mind, and subject formation, an alternative that consistently attracts the language of spirituality, even in anti-supernatural texts.

This book analyzes how these epiphanies become spiritual and how both character and narrative shape themselves like constellations around such moments. This study begins with James Joyce, inventor of literary epiphany, and Martin Heidegger, who used the ancient Greek concepts behind epiphaneia to re-define the concept of Being.

Kim then offers readings of novels by Susan Warner, George Eliot, Edith Wharton, Virginia Woolf, and William Faulkner, each addressing a different form of epiphany.
