Genres As Repositories Of Cultural Memory

by International Comparative Literature Association. Congress, Genres As Repositories Of Cultural Memory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Genres As Repositories Of Cultural Memory books, This volume deals with the inherent relation between literary genres and cultural memory. Indeed, generic repertoires may be regarded as bodies of shared knowledge (a sort of 'encyclopaedia' or 'museum' of stocked culture) and have played and still play an important role in absorbing and activating that memory. The contributors have focused on some specific memory-linked genres that prove especially relevant in remembering and transforming past experiences, i.e. the (post)modern historical novel and various forms of (post)modern autobiographical writing. They deal with such renowned authors as Carlos Fuentes, Vargas Llosa, Umberto Eco, Antonio Tabucchi, John Barth, Julian Barnes, Michel Butor, Nathalie Sarraute, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Claude Simon, Georges Perec and Marguerite Yourcenar. The volume, thus, constitutes an attractive and representative sample of (post)modern forms of rewriting and problematizing individual and collective pasts.

Classics Contemporaries

by John W. Aldridge, Classics Contemporaries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Classics Contemporaries books, Since the publication of his highly influential first book, After the Lost Generation, John W. Aldridge has been recognized as a master of contemporary literary criticism. In this selection of brilliant essays he turns his creative critical mind toward some of the major figures of modern literature--Edmund Wilson, Malcolm Cowley, Wright Morris, Ernest Hemingway, Henry James, Saul Bellow, John Barth, and Robert Penn Warren, among others. Throughout his career, Aldridge has been deeply concerned with the relation of society to literature. In "Catch-22: Twenty-Five Years Later" he shows how the novel that shocked and outraged reviewers upon its publication became a monumental artifact of contemporary American literature. In "Norman Mailer: Conquering the Bitch Goddess" he shows how Mailer finally succeeded in becoming a literary hero by embodying the contradictory spirit of the 1960s protest movement, adopting both its blind faith and its cynicism. A new review of Mailer's latest novel, Harlot's Ghost, concludes that Mailer "possesses the largest mind and imagination at work in American literature today." Aldridge traces literary fads in "William Styron's Holocaust Chic" before concluding that "Styron's problem is not so much that he is unable to express his ideas in his fiction as that he seems not to have any ideas to express." "Amidst the tumult and confusion of the times, John W. Aldridge has kept a singular purity of vision," said the New York Times Book Review. While the changing editorial policies of the major book reviews and magazines threaten to make serious literary criticism a thing of the past, Aldridge still believes that books and their ideas have a living relation to daily life. Taken together, these essays offer not only a survey of John Aldridge's distinguished career as a critic, but also an intriguing picture of the evolution of contemporary literature.

Understanding John Barth

by Stanley Fogel, Understanding John Barth Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Understanding John Barth books, The main aim of this work is to provide a comprehensive guide to the major writings of John Barth - the author of The Floating Opera, The End of the Road, Chimera, The Tidewater Tales: A Novel and other works. With roots in the 20-century existential tradition, Barth sees human beings stripped of their beliefs in universal values and systems of belief - in God, tradition, reason or literary formulations. He is concerned about the kinds of choices that fulfill human and artistic potential and those that lead to failure, and he is equally concerned about how those choices affect the environment. Art, to him, shapes an awareness not only of literature itself but of self, culture and history, so he tries to review these areas against the grain.

A Tidewater Morning

by William Styron, A Tidewater Morning Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Tidewater Morning books, From the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Sophie’s Choice: three novellas of a young writer’s journey to adulthood. In Love Day, twenty-year-old Paul Whitehurst is a Marine lieutenant during World War II, waiting to land on Okinawa, wrestling with anxiety and memories of his boyhood in Virginia. In Shadrach, ten-year-old Paul witnesses his neighbors as they welcome a guest: a ninety-nine-year-old former slave who has walked nine hundred miles from Alabama so that he may die on the land of his childhood owner. And in A Tidewater Morning, Paul is thirteen and struggling to deal with his mother’s impending death from cancer. Together in one volume, each of these affecting semiautobiographical novellas from the author of such literary classics as the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Confessions of Nat Turner and the memoir Darkness Visible, weaves together the transformative experiences of Whitehurst’s early life with William Styron’s signature deep historical insight, underscoring how the significance of the past informs the present. As the Los Angeles Times notes, it is “one of Styron’s finest works. . . . The beauty and humanity of the Southern tradition are evoked vividly.” This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.
