Curiosities of Literature ARROW

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

How much heavier was Thackeray's brain than Walt Whitman's? Which novels do American soldiers read? When did cigarettes start making an appearance in English literature? And, while we're about it, who wrote the first Western, is there any link between asthma and literary genius, and what really happened on Dorothea's wedding night in Middlemarch? In Curiosities of Literature, John Sutherland contemplates the full import of questions such as these, and attempts a few answers in a series of essays that are both witty and eclectic. His approach is also unashamedly discursive. An account of the fast-working Mickey Spillane, for example, leads to a consideration of the substances, both legal and illegal, that authors have employed to boost their creative energies. An essay on good and bad handwriting points out in passing that Thackeray could write the Lord's Prayer on the back of a stamp. As for Mary Shelley, a brief recital of the circumstances in which she wrote Frankenstein stops off to consider what impact the miserable summer weather of 1816 had on the future path of English literature. Of course, it is debatable whether knowledge of these arcane topics adds to the wisdom of nations, but it does highlight the random pleasures to be found in reading literature and reading about it. As John Sutherland rightly asks, 'Why else read?'

Salt Companion to Carter Revard Salt Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Salt Companion to Carter Revard is a groundbreaking collection of critical essays on the poetry and scholarship of one of Native America's most loved and respected poets. Carter Revard, Osage poet, Rhodes scholar, and professor of medieval English literature, grew up among Osage and Ponca relations on the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma. His complex, elegantly crafted poetry ranges from lyrical evocations of his rural childhood and traditional lifeways to reflections on academic life in Oxford and St. Louis, global politics, and postmodern science; from narrative poems about family bootleggers and AIM activists, tornados and rainbows, to adaptations of Anglo-Saxon riddle poems. In precise and gorgeous language, Revard weaves the varied songs of his multiple heritages and experiences into a symphony of celebration of the large and small miracles of the universe. Revard's blending of Western literary and Native oral traditions demand multilayered critical approaches. The thirteen critical essays gathered in this volume, written by leading scholars of Native American literature, explore Revard's poetry from multiple perspectives, offering biographical and cultural contexts, thematic considerations, and close readings of individual poems. Two essays break exciting new ground by examining interrelationships between Revard's medieval scholarship and American Indian storytelling traditions. Like Revard's poems and scholarship, the essays are both erudite and warmly personal, filled with good stories that will appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, RWTH Aachen University, course: American Non-Fiction, language: English, abstract: The eighty-five essays, today commonly referred to as The Federalist Papers,§were written in 1787 and 1788 in order to help in securing the ratification of the§proposed United States Constitution in the State of New York. Although the essays§were all signed Publius, they were written by three men of different background and,§to some extent, different political ideas. John Jay, Alexander Hamilton and James§Madison have contributed to the Papers in different quantity. Due to an illness Jay§has contributed only five articles. Hamilton s and Madison s contributions are not§always easy to separate but most scholars ascribe twenty-nine articles to Madison§and fifty-one to Hamilton. The authorship of essays 18-20, 49-58, and 62-63 was§the subject of heated historical controversy for more than a century and a half,§because both Hamilton and Madison allegedly claimed authorship of these essays. §The object of this paper is to analyze the rhetorical approach of Madison and§Hamilton in selected papers. Also, an attempt will be made to determine if, and to§what extent their rhetorical style and political ideas are distinguishable even under§the joint guise of Publius.§The analysis will be undertaken on the examples of four selected papers No. 10,§54, 84 and 85, which were chosen as representatives of the respective author s style,§since a detailed analysis of all 85 papers would be to extensive for a term paper.§Contributions by John Jay are deliberately left out since they consist of only 5 papers§which are arguably among the less important ones. Federalist No.10 was chosen as the most famous of Madison s contributions due to§its prominence within the scholarly debate and the prevailing significance of the§problem discussed in the essay the dangers or factions within a republic system.§No. 54 was chosen as an example of disputed authorship and due to its treatment of§the complex problem of slavery in regard to the number of Representatives of Southern States. A special interest lies in the author s approach to distinguish the§slaves status of being people and property at the same time. No. 84 was chosen§due to Hamilton s interesting rhetorical treatment of and political stance on the bill of§rights. No. 85 was chosen because of its importance as a conclusion to the complete§work and arguments of the whole body of texts. [...]

Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) was a Lebanese American of Assyrian descent, an artist, poet and writer. He was born Gibran Khalil Gibran in Lebanon (at the time a Syrian Province of the Ottoman Empire) and spent much of his productive life in the United States. While most of Gibran's early writings were in Syriac and Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran also took part in the New York Pen League, also known as the "immigrant poets" (al-mahjar), alongside other important Lebanese American authors such as Ameen Rihani ("the father of Lebanese American literature"), Mikhail Naimy and Elia Abu Madi. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 26 poetic essays, first written in English in 1923. The Prophet remains famous to this day, having been translated into more than 20 languages. Other works in English include: Spirits Rebellious, (1908), The Broken Wings (1912), A Tear and a Smile (1914), The Forerunner (1920), Sand and Foam (1926), Jesus the Son of Man (1928), The Earth Gods (1929), The Wanderer (1932) and The Garden of the Prophet (1933).

Italo Calvino University Press Group Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the first collection in English of the extraordinary letters of one of the great writers of the twentieth century. Italy's most important postwar novelist, Italo Calvino (1923-1985) achieved worldwide fame with such books as Cosmicomics, Invisible Cities, and If on a Winter's Night a Traveler. But he was also an influential literary critic, an important literary editor, and a masterful letter writer whose correspondents included Umberto Eco, Primo Levi, Gore Vidal, Leonardo Sciascia, Natalia Ginzburg, Michelangelo Antonioni, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Luciano Berio. This book includes a generous selection of about 650 letters, written between World War II and the end of Calvino's life. Selected and introduced by Michael Wood, the letters are expertly rendered into English and annotated by well-known Calvino translator Martin McLaughlin. The letters are filled with insights about Calvino's writing and that of others; about Italian, American, English, and French literature; about literary criticism and literature in general; and about culture and politics. The book also provides a kind of autobiography, documenting Calvino's Communism and his resignation from the party in 1957, his eye-opening trip to the United States in 1959-60, his move to Paris (where he lived from 1967 to 1980), and his trip to his birthplace in Cuba (where he met Che Guevara). Some lengthy letters amount almost to critical essays, while one is an appropriately brief defense of brevity, and there is an even shorter, reassuring note to his parents written on a scrap of paper while he and his brother were in hiding during the antifascist Resistance. This is a book that will fascinate and delight Calvino fans and anyone else interested in a remarkable portrait of a great writer at work.

The Function of Love in Baldwin's 'Another Country' GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Tubingen, language: English, abstract: The novel Another Country, published in 1962, was written by James Baldwin, an African-American writer, particularly well known for his social-critical essays. Another Country, as a fictional work, serves Baldwin to express several ideas formerly developed in his essay writing and so the novel covers a manifold spectrum of social issues, including race, sexuality and finally love. Love as a central topic in Baldwin s Another Country has been analysed by several critics and even Baldwin admits candidly that the novel shows the desperate searches of its characters for the self- knowledge and self-esteem the identity without which real love is impossible. But how do these themes work in the novel, what does such a love have to look like and what does it have to include for the individual to be able to learn to see real human beings behind the categories, labels, and prejudices which are imposed by the loveless in a society. This essay undertakes an approximation to these questions mainly on the basis of the novel, considering some of Baldwins essays and works of critics such as Lorelei Cederstorm or David Leeming. § The first part will focus on an analysis of the relationship with which the novel starts and which can be regarded as a crucial guideline, a negative touchstone for the further development and interpretation of the novel. In Part II a short overview of the other relationships of the novel is provided. By doing this, their connection with the first relationship will be illustrated, until finally it will be posible to suggest how the characters succeed or fail in the matter of love, which Baldwin conceives as [ ] a journey two people have to make with each other.

Insufferable Gaucho Picador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Unpredictable and daring, highly controlled and yet somehow haywire, the five short stories included here are some of Bolano's best. Whether they concern a stalwart rodent detective trying to investigate the mysterious deaths of his fellow rats, an elderly judge giving up his job in the city for an improbable return to the family farm in the pampas, or a confrontation between an elusive film-maker and the little-known Argentinian novelist whose work he's plagiarized for years, they are as haunting as they are enthralling. In addition, The Insufferable Gaucho offers, for the first time in English, two essays: 'Literature + Illness = Illness' and 'The Myths of Cthulhu'. Provocative and often scathing, these essays are alive with Bolano's trademark humour, violence and utter faith in the power of the written word. Roberto Bolano confirmed his place as a giant of Latin American literature with his novels The Savage Detectives and 2666. He is undoubtedly, as Susan Sontag said, 'the real thing and the rarest'. The Insufferable Gaucho was the last book he prepared for publication before he died in 2003.

Consciousness and the Novel - 2837511076

Consciousness and the Novel BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Human consciousness, long the province of literature, has lately come in for a remapping--even rediscovery--by the natural sciences, driven by developments in Artificial Intelligence, neuroscience, and evolutionary biology. As the richest record we have of human consciousness, literature, David Lodge suggests, may offer a kind of understanding that is complementary, not opposed, to scientific knowledge. Writing with characteristic wit and brio, and employing the insight and acumen of a skilled novelist and critic, Lodge here explores the representation of human consciousness in fiction (mainly English and American) in light of recent investigations in the sciences. How does the novel represent consciousness? And how has this changed over time? In a series of interconnected essays, Lodge pursues these questions down various paths: How does the novel's method compare with that of other creative media such as film? How does the consciousness (and unconscious) of the creative writer do its work? And how can criticism infer the nature of this process through formal analysis? In essays on Charles Dickens, E. M. Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Kingsley and Martin Amis, Henry James, John Updike, and Philip Roth, and in reflections on his own practice as a novelist, Lodge is able to bring to light--and to engaging life--the technical, intellectual, and sometimes simply mysterious working of the creative mind.
