A Non-Zero-Sum Game or An Essay About Nothing

Kimberly Bruss

Abstract


In this essay, I take a critical look at the notion of zero or nothing, as it plays out in our daily lives and in literature, specifically poetry. Nothing is not something that we learn from experience, but rather a concept we invent to fill a void. This essay looks at the causes and effects of that void.
