Critical-Creative Writing CONTINUUM

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The rapid expansion of creative writing courses in higher education, from undergraduate to MA/MFA and PhD level, has generated its own literature and pedagogical practices. All students, at all levels, are asked to supply some kind of 'reflective commentary' on their creative writing. All students also participate in workshops, where student writing is subject to peer and tutor criticism. There is no agreed, standardised way in which either of these practices is approached. While this variety of approaches is one of creative writing's strengths, it is also a serious, and sometimes confusing limitation. Providing a historical, literary and theoretical resource for creative writing students and their teachers, Critical-Creative Writing offers secure grounding for critical commentaries and provides material for workshop use and clarification of the critical process itself. Critical-Creative Writing is the first of its kind to offer a unique support for students dealing with criticism and critical commentary as part of their creative writing practice and assessment.

Hamlet: Language and Writing Arden Shakespeare

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Arden Student Guides offer a new type of study aid which combines lively critical insight with practical guidance on the critical and writng skills students need to develop in order to engage fully with Shakespeare's texts. The books' core focus is on langauge: both understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's rich and complex dramatic lanaguage, and the student's own critical language and how she can improve and develop this to become a critical writer. This lively and informative guide reveals Hamlet as marking a turning point in Shakespeare's use of language and dramatic form as well as addressing the key problem at the play's core: Hamlet's inaction. It also looks at recent critical approaches to the play and its theatre history, including the recent David Tennant/RSC Hamlet on both stage and TV screen.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Following a scene-setting Introduction which reflects on the state of 'theory' today, the 11 chapters in this volume introduce new areas of critical thinking which go beyond the standard 'isms': Literary Reading in a Digital Age; Critical Making in the Digital Humanities; Thing Theory; Memory Work and Criticism; Body, Objects, Technology; Criticism and 'The Animal'; Multimodality and Linguistic Approaches to Literary Study; Critical and Creative Practice: Conditions for Success in the Writing Workshop; Affect Theory; Spectrality; Critical Climate Change. A final rounding off chapter on Historicising presents debates around historically oriented criticism, including a 'round table' among the contributors. Each chapter also provides a critical 'case study' of a text or texts, including poetry writing guides, a Seamus Heaney poem, film adaptations of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, e-readers and kindles, First World War poetry and prose, steampunk, and Robert Macfarlane's The Old Ways. From 'Thing Theory' to animal theory, multimodality to film adaptation, and from acts of reading in a digital age to the creative writing workshop, the volume reflects a radical reorientation in critical modes of thinking."

Derek Jarman - 2826918515

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Derek Jarman (1942-1994) is most often remembered as one of Europe's most innovative independent film-makers, whose films called into question and re-ordered the nature of film-making itself. But he was also a painter, writer and poet, gardener, set designer for other people's films, ballet, opera and theatre, and influential campaigner for gay rights and other causes. He was also the author of an extraordinary series of journals that offer invaluable insight not only into the nature of the society in which he lived but also into his own creative process. It is remarkable that his art was not confined to one or two of these activities but embraced all of them. This new biography of Jarman discusses the entire range of his works and provides a picture of the whole man, from childhood to his untimely death in 1994. For the first time it properly integrates his paintings and writings with his film, demonstrating the strong connections between his varied areas of artistic production. Author Michael Charlesworth employs and assesses film criticism, art history, garden and nature writing, critical analysis of poetry and the personal opinions of Jarman and his friends. He also shows how Jarman was an invaluable voice for a larger range of people: one who espoused love, friendship and art; one who fearlessly pushed forward intellectual virtues and the value of art in an often hostile and unappreciative political and social atmosphere. Fresh in its conclusions, engaging in style, Derek Jarman is accessible, thought-provoking, radical in its arguments and its tracing of the patterns of Jarman's phenomenal creativity. An invaluable complement to Jarman's works, this book will interest all Jarman fans as well as readers interested in the history of film, the arts and modern British history and culture.

Calvert Casey Duke University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hailed as a literary relative of Kafka and Poe by his Italian and Cuban contemporaries, Calvert Casey and his enthralling work have until now remained eclipsed in the United States. This collection brings all of Casey's powerful short stories and a fragment of an unfinished novel to an English-speaking audience for the first time. Exploring the human condition through poetically unique yet torturous views of the mind, Casey was a renegade artist whose work perceives reality as a smoke screen behind which Truth is hidden. He intended his fiction to disturb and subvert standard, plot-driven views of life. Born in the United States, Casey was raised in Cuba and spent most of his life there and in Europe. He chose Spanish as his primary artistic tongue. A member of the intelligentsia surrounding Castro in the early years of the revolution, he was eventually exiled - and in 1969 committed suicide in Rome at the age of forty-five.Although most of his luminous stories are set in Havana, his is not a touristy, picturesque landscape but an often strange and nightmarish theatre of human passions, inhabited by figures - silhouettes, really - that live on the edge of normality. This volume, which showcases Casey's mastery of the skill of indirect and gradual revelation, is the most complete to appear in any language and includes a biographical and critical introduction written by Ilan Stavans, the noted novelist and scholar of Hispanic culture. Readers interested in the art of fiction and in the complexities of the human psyche will find Casey's work irresistible.Calvert Casey (1924-1969) had published both essays and short stories in Spanish during his lifetime. John H. R. Polt is Professor Emeritus of Spanish at the University of California at Berkeley. Ilan Stavans is Professor of Spanish and Creative Writing at Amherst College. 'Out of Havana arrives one of the most significant Hispanic American writers ...Calvert Casey, nourished by the Western literary tradition, yet, obstinately, almost obsessively, 'local.' ...With memories of Havana as a colony and of slavery, of the brothels and black witchcraft and uninterrupted sensuality in an uninterrupted dialogue with the dead, Casey ...began to write far from Cuba out of nostalgia. It led him to return to Cuba and to submerge himself anew in the old city known rock by rock, ghost by ghost, ensuring never to be separated from her again' - "Italo Calvino", written in 1966, reprinted in "Quimera" number 26 (Dec. 1982).

Shakespeare and the Eighteenth Century Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

OXFORD SHAKESPEARE TOPICS General Editors: Peter Holland and Stanley Wells Oxford Shakespeare Topics provide students and teachers with short books on important aspects of Shakespeare criticism and scholarship. Each book is written by an authority in its field, and combines accessible style with original discussion of its subject. This book considers the impact and influence of Shakespeare on writing of the eighteenth century, and also how eighteenth-century Shakespeare scholarship influenced how we read Shakespeare today. The most influential English actor of the eighteenth century, David Garrick, could hail Shakespeare as 'the god of our idolatry', yet perform an adaptation of King Lear with a happy ending, add a dying speech to Macbeth, and remove the puns from Romeo and Juliet. Garrick's friend Samuel Johnson thought of Shakespeare as 'above all writers, at least above all modern writers, the poet of nature'. Voltaire thought he was a sublime genius without taste. The Bluestocking Elizabeth Montagu, meanwhile, could be found arguing with Johnson's biographer James Boswell over whether Shakespeare or Milton was the greater poet. Shakespeare and the Eighteenth Century traces the course of a many-faceted metamorphosis. Drawing on fresh research as well as the most recent scholarship in the field, it argues that the story of Shakespeare in the eighteenth century has become a significant 'subplot' in later scholarship, made up of great debates about how to read Shakespeare and how to rank him among the great English writers, how to perform his plays and how to edit the texts of those plays. This book surveys the critical and creative responses of actors and audiences, literary critics and textual editors, painters and philosophes to Shakespeare's works, while also suggesting how the Shakespeare of the theatre influenced the Shakespeare of the study, and how other, less straightforward interactions combined to bring about this sea-change in English cultural life. It speaks of the crucial role of Shakespeare in eighteenth-century culture, and the importance of that culture's absorption of Shakespeare for subsequent generations. This is a book about what the eighteenth century did to Shakespeare - and vice versa.
