Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Basat en la perspectiva de la identitat, la consciència i la subjectivitat dels estudiosos negres com Stuart Hall, Bell Hooks, Cornel West, Henry Louis Gates, Jr i W. I. B. Du Bois, al costat de l'enfocament postcolonial de crítics com Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, Helen Tiffin i Homi Bhabha entre d'altres, aquest llibre proporciona el marc teòric necessari per a analitzar les novel·les d'Easy Rawlins escrites per Walter Mosley. l'autor s'apropia de les convencions de la novel·la detectivesca per tal de representar la societat americana dels cinquanta i seixanta des d'una perspectiva marginal. La subjectivitat d'Easy Rawlins està determinada pel seu paper com a detectiu, la seva consciència postcolonial com a home negre que ha crescut en una societat dominada pels blancs i, per la seua inclinació i defensa d'una forta cultura afroamericana.

Summary Book Review Whodunit? :

Download or read book Whodunit? written by Rosemary Herbert and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2003-05-08 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Who populates the pages of crime and mystery writing? Who are the characters we willingly follow into the mystery genre's uneasy imaginative territory? And who created those characters in the first place? What life experience and expertise informs their work? What are the sources of their themes, regional accents, and even the axes that some grind? Why do some wish to give us a good laugh, while others seem hell-bent on making us shudder? Whodunit? answers these questions and more. Here mystery expert Rosemary Herbert brings together enlightening and entertaining information on hundreds of classic and contemporary characters and authors. Some--such as P.D. James, Ian Rankin, Sherlock Holmes, and Kinsey Millhone--appear in individual entries. Still more keep company in articles about characters we admire, such as the Clerical Sleuth, and in pieces about those we love to hate, including the Femme Fatale and Con Artist. There is even an article on a figure that haunts so many great works of mystery--The Corpse. Drawing on the Edgar Award-nominated volume The Oxford Companion to Crime & Mystery Writing, Herbert adds 101 new entries on the hottest new names in works ranging from puzzling whodunits to chilling crime novels.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Arthur Conan Doyle has long been considered the greatest writer of crime fiction, and the gender bias of the genre has foregrounded William Godwin, Edgar Allan Poe, Wilkie Collins, Émile Gaboriau and Fergus Hume. But earlier and significant contributions were being made by women in Britain, the United States and Australia between 1860 and 1880, a period that was central to the development of the genre. This work focuses on women writers of this genre and these years, including Catherine Crowe, Caroline Clive, Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mrs. Henry (Ellen) Wood, Harriet Prescott Spofford, Louisa May Alcott, Metta Victoria Fuller Victor, Anna Katharine Green, Céleste de Chabrillan, “Oliné Keese” (Caroline Woolmer Leakey), Eliza Winstanley, Ellen Davitt, and Mary Helena Fortune—innovators who set a high standard for women writers to follow.

Summary Book Review Postmodernism, Traditional Cultural Forms, and African American Narratives :

Download or read book Postmodernism, Traditional Cultural Forms, and African American Narratives written by W. Lawrence Hogue and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on 2013-12-01 with total page 339 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Examines how six writers reconfigure African American subjectivity in ways that recall postmodernist theory. This book explores how African American social and political movements, African American studies, independent scholars, and traditional cultural forms revisit and challenge the representation of the African American as deviant other. After surveying African American history and cultural politics, W. Lawrence Hogue provides original and insightful readings of six experimental/postmodern African American texts: John Edgar Wideman’s Philadelphia Fire; Percival Everett’s Erasure; Toni Morrison’s Jazz; Bonnie Greer’s Hanging by Her Teeth; Clarence Major’s Reflex and Bone Structure; and Xam Wilson Cartiér’s Muse-Echo Blues. Using traditional cultural and western forms, including the blues, jazz, voodoo, virtuality, radical democracy, Jungian/African American Collective Unconscious, Yoruba gods, black folk culture, and black working class culture, Hogue reveals that these authors uncover spaces with different definitions of life that still retain a wildness and have not been completely mapped out and trademarked by normative American culture. Redefining the African American novel and the African American outside the logic, rules, and values of western binary reason, these writers leave open the possibility of psychic liberation of African Americans in the West.
