When the Last Days Come: Eschatology and Hope in the Songs of The Mountain Goats
Over the past two decades, John Darnielle of the The Mountain Goats has crafted a remarkable collection of songs, distinguished by lyrics of high literary quality. One notable feature of Darnielle’s song-writing is his frequent use of eschatological language and imagery. This paper examines the “logic of eschatology” in Darnielle’s song-writing, paying special attention to themes of suffering, justice and hope.
