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?'

The Other Frontier: Women's Experiences on the American Frontier GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Ruhr-University of Bochum (Englisches Seminar), course: Frontier Culture, language: English, abstract: The American Frontier is one of the United States great myths that has shaped the whole nation s perception of their world. Even though many scholars are puzzled by its meaning and the vague definition of the Frontier (West 1994, 115), it still remains a concept which captured the American public s imagination and [is] now deeply woven into the American consciousness (Ridge 1991, 2). The Frontier immediately evokes images in everyone s head pictures of a vast and wild land that has been conquered and subjugated by man. Even Frederick Jackson Turner, one of the great historians of that time, called the Frontier the meeting point between savagery and civilization (Engler 2007, 415). This wilderness is mostly depicted by settlers moving over the mountains in their trail wagons and also strong and fearless cowboys facing the dangers and isolation of the Frontier. In history books, essays and many accounts of the American Frontier we find the glorified man (Hahn 2008, 149) who turned wilderness into the American nation. Of most of the ideas of the Frontier one important element has been denied or is missing the pioneer woman. The experiences of all these women who were on the Frontier as well and were facing the wilderness are often denied or hardly mentioned. Female scholars bemoaned this obscured reality. Inspired by the feminist movement in the 20th century, women were eager to recover their past and historians tried to place absent women in the westward movement (Walsh 1995, 244). Therefore, this paper tries to find answers to the questions of what this male myth of the Frontier looks like, what the reasons for muting women s experiences in frontier history were, and what the female role in this context was. It will also address one common element that can be found in many of the accounts of pioneer women loneliness. It is to examine how loneliness was expressed, how these women coped with their loneliness and tried to overcome it. Then we will learn how women perceived violence and how they counteracted social disorder and describe women s tasks as missionaries of civilization (Jeffrey 1983, 79). As the topic of this paper indicates we will take a look at the other Frontier and try to see it through the eyes of the pioneer women.

Salt Companion to Carter Revard - 2826697843

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.

Heretical Empiricism - 2852759820

Heretical Empiricism BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is an expanded edition of Pier Paolo Pasolini's long out-of-print Heretical Empiricism. It includes a new Introduction by Ben Lawton that discusses the relevance of the book on the 30th anniversary of the author's death. It also features the first approved translation of "Repu- diation of the 'Trilogy of Life'," one of Pasolini's most con- troversial final essays.While Pasolini is best known in the U.S. as a revolutionary film director, in Italy he was even better known as poet, novelist, playwright, political gadfly, and scholar of the semiotics of film. "New Academic Publishing should be commended for making this expanded version of Pier Paolo Pasolini's Hermetic Empiricism once again available to the English-speaking public, especially in the light of the fact that the important essay, "Repudiation of the Trilology of Life," has been added to its contents. Thirty years after Pasolini's violent death on 2 November 1975, the appearance of this excellent translation and edition of his major writings on Italian film, literature, and language is most welcome. No figure has emerged in Italy since the writer/director's death that has aroused such passionate opinions from all sides of the political and cultural spectrum. The translations by Ben Lawton and Louise Barnett render Pasolini's sometimes complex prose accurately with ample explanatory notes to guide the reader without a firm grasp of the original essays in Italian. This book represents an important work to have in every library devoted to cultural criticism, cinema, and literary theory." -- Peter Bondanella, Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature and Italian, Indiana University "One of the greatest cultural figures of postwar Europe, Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975), who is already widely known as a revolutionary filmmaker, was an equally important writer and poet. Pasolini's numerous works are published in some 50 volumes, which include poetry, novels, critical and theoretical essays, verse tragedies, screenplays, political journalism, and translations. With this successful and complete translation of Empirismo eretico (a collection of Pasolini's interventions on language, literature, and film written between 1964 and 1971), editors Barnett and Lawton have made a wide sample of Pasolini's most significant theoretical work available to the English-speaking reader. Essays on the screenplay, on the commercial and the art cinema, and on film semiotics make the collection of special interest to American film scholars and students. This volume is further enriched by an excellent introduction, carefully edited notes, a useful biographical glossary, and a thorough index. Given the contemporary interest in studying film, together with other cultural forms, within a broad social and historical context, Pasolini's "extravagantly interdisciplinary" writings beckon as a promising source of insight. A potentially seminal text that could contribute to the further evolution of interdisciplinary humanistic studies, Heretical Empiricism is highly recommended for university and college libraries." -- J. Welle, University of Notre Dame, CHOICE (1989)

The Rhetorical Approach in the Federalist Papers No.10, No.54, No.84 and No.85 GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

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. [...]
