Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The contentious discourse around world literature tends to stress the ‘world’ in the phrase. This volume, in contrast, asks what it means to approach world literature by inflecting the question of the literary. Debates for, against, and around ‘world literature’ have brought renewed attention to the worldly aspects of the literary enterprise. Literature is studied with regard to its sociopolitical and cultural references, contexts and conditions of production, circulation, distribution, and translation. But what becomes of the literary when one speaks of world literature? Responding to Derek Attridge’s theory of how literature ‘works’, the contributions in this volume explore in diverse ways and with attention to a variety of literary practices what it might mean to speak of ‘the work of world literature’. The volume shows how attention to literariness complicates the ethical and political conundrums at the centre of debates about world literature.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: L’importance que le storytelling a désormais acquise, sous de nombreuses facettes, est une réalité permettant d’entamer une réflexion sérieuse et un questionnement constant sur la situation actuelle du rapport entre le monde du travail et la formation en sciences humaines. Cette réflexion doit s’adresser en même temps au monde universitaire et au monde du travail, afin de savoir quelles sont les compétences nécessaires aujourd’hui pour avancer dans la profession. C’est ce questionnement qui est à la base du projet HEAD (Humanities and Enterprises Annual Dialogue), dans l’espoir d’un débat visant à mettre en avant combien une formation humaniste, et surtout littéraire, est fondamentale aujourd’hui et quels changements doit-elle prévoir pour l’avenir.

Download or read book The Literary Works of Jack B. Yeats written by John W. Purser and published by Barnes & Noble Imports. This book was released on 1991 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: PMThere is far more to Jack B. Yeats than has met the eye. His father once said, "Some day I shall be remembered as the father of a great poet, and the poet is Jack." Purser argues that Jack B. Yeats' writings have been misunderstood, that the writer was educated among the people in the West of Ireland, without the social and literary preconceptions and traditions of the universities. He suggests that Jack Yeats was wily and clever in his use of symbolism. With this background in mind, and with the aid of evidence previously unusedoincluding a new chronologyonew interpretations are given for many of his works and an overall pattern in the novels is revealed. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of literature, Irish literature, and Irish Studies.

This book was released on 2013-07-29 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This original and provocative study tells the story of American literary history from the perspective of its environmental context. Weaving together close readings of early American texts with ecological histories of tobacco, potatoes, apples and honey bees, Michael Ziser presents a method for literary criticism that explodes the conceptual distinction between the civilized and natural world. Beginning with the English exploration of Virginia in the sixteenth century, Ziser argues that the settlement of the 'New World' - and the cultivation and exploitation of its bounty - dramatically altered how writers used language to describe the phenomena they encountered on the frontier. Examining the work of Harriot, Grainger, Cooper, Thoreau and others, Ziser reveals how these authors, whether consciously or not, transcribed the vibrant ecology of North America, and the ways that the environment helped codify a uniquely American literary aesthetic of lasting importance.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Society, Representations and Textuality: The Critical Interface brings together papers from various critical perspectives of Humanities and Social Sciences. The work (a) takes stock of the recent developments in critical theory and cultural studies; (b) studies the impact of these developments on the understanding of social reality and the human predicament in India; and (c) brings together scholars from North East India who are engaged in the project of understanding society and communities in their chosen intellectual practice. The book is the first-ever attempt to establish a dialogic encounter between critical practices in Humanities and Social sciences, hitherto considered to be autonomous in their own disciplinary boundaries. Further, the volume addresses issues of identity and autonomy of a multicultural India, particularly with reference to the interface between hegemonic cultures and politically and culturally persistent smaller communities. A significant feature of this book is its attempt to theorize and describe the myriad manifestations of the critical interface between society and literary or cultural productions.

Download or read book American Literature and the Culture of Reprinting, 1834-1853 written by Meredith L. McGill and published by University of Pennsylvania Press. This book was released on 2013-08-21 with total page 373 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The antebellum period has long been identified with the belated emergence of a truly national literature. And yet, as Meredith L. McGill argues, a mass market for books in this period was built and sustained through what we would call rampant literary piracy: a national literature developed not despite but because of the systematic copying of foreign works. Restoring a political dimension to accounts of the economic grounds of antebellum literature, McGill unfolds the legal arguments and political struggles that produced an American "culture of reprinting" and held it in place for two crucial decades. In this culture of reprinting, the circulation of print outstripped authorial and editorial control. McGill examines the workings of literary culture within this market, shifting her gaze from first and authorized editions to reprints and piracies, from the form of the book to the intersection of book and periodical publishing, and from a national literature to an internally divided and transatlantic literary marketplace. Through readings of the work of Dickens, Poe, and Hawthorne, McGill seeks both to analyze how changes in the conditions of publication influenced literary form and to measure what was lost as literary markets became centralized and literary culture became stratified in the early 1850s. American Literature and the Culture of Reprinting, 1834-1853 delineates a distinctive literary culture that was regional in articulation and transnational in scope, while questioning the grounds of the startlingly recent but nonetheless powerful equation of the national interest with the extension of authors' rights.

Download or read book Literature written by Arther S. Trace and published by University Press of Amer. This book was released on 1997 with total page 146 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Literature examines the declining influence of the literary arts in America particularly during the last half century and attempts to analyze the problem by calling attention to four particular threats which appear to be besieging them. They are: (1) the replacing of the authority of the imagination by the authority of the sciences; (2) the rise of certain literary and critical theories in recent decades which have seriously weakened the study of literature in both the schools and the colleges; (3) problems in producing fully literate high school graduates, largely as a result of faulty methods of teaching reading and doubtful philosophical principles which have seriously weakened the study of literature in the schools; and (4) the threat of the electronic age to the preservation of the printed page upon which literature depends for its very survival. All of these forces have served to trivialize literature and are on their way to destroying it as a major cultural force in modern America. This book also attempts to redeem literature, and to help restore literature as a major discipline, superior in importance to other disciplines, by offering a theory of literature which will demonstrate that literature is in fact, as Sir Philip Sidney insisted, "the highest form of earthly learning."

Download or read book Troubling Nationhood in U.S. Latina Literature written by Maya Socolovsky and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2013-06-26 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the ways in which recent U.S. Latina literature challenges popular definitions of nationhood and national identity. It explores a group of feminist texts that are representative of the U.S. Latina literary boom of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, when an emerging group of writers gained prominence in mainstream and academic circles. Through close readings of select contemporary Mexican American, Puerto Rican, and Cuban American works, Maya Socolovsky argues that these narratives are “remapping” the United States so that it is fully integrated within a larger, hemispheric Americas. Looking at such concerns as nation, place, trauma, and storytelling, writers Denise Chavez, Sandra Cisneros, Esmeralda Santiago, Ana Castillo, Himilce Novas, and Judith Ortiz Cofer challenge popular views of Latino cultural “unbelonging” and make strong cases for the legitimate presence of Latinas/os within the United States. In this way, they also counter much of today’s anti-immigration rhetoric. Imagining the U.S. as part of a broader "Americas," these writings trouble imperialist notions of nationhood, in which political borders and a long history of intervention and colonization beyond those borders have come to shape and determine the dominant culture's writing and the defining of all Latinos as "other" to the nation.

Summary Book Review The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature :

Download or read book The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature written by Peter E. Knox and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2013-10-31 with total page 656 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though the wonders of ancient Roman culture continue to attract interest across the disciplines, it is difficult to find a lively, accessible collection of the full range of the era's literature in English. The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature provides a general introduction to the literature of the Roman empire at its zenith, between the second century BC and the second century AD. Two features of this extraordinarily fertile period in literary achievement as evidenced by this anthology are immediately and repeatedly clear: how similar the Romans' view of the world was to our own and, perhaps even more obviously, how different it was. Most of the authors included in the anthology wrote in Latin, but as the anthology moves forward in time, relevant Greek texts that reflect the cultural diversity of Roman literary life are also included, something no other such anthology has done in the past. Roman literature was wonderfully creative and diverse, and the texts in this volume were chosen from a broad range of genres: drama, epic, philosophy, satire, lyric poetry, love poetry. By its very nature an anthology can abbreviate and thus obscure the most attractive features of even a masterpiece, so the two editors have not only selected texts that capture the essence of the respective authors, but also have included accompanying introductions and afterwords that will guide the reader in pursuing further reading. The presentations of the selections are enlivened with illustrations that locate the works within the contexts of the world in which they were written and enjoyed. The student and general reader will come away from this learned yet entertaining anthology with a fuller appreciation of the place occupied by literature in the Roman world.
