Emergence of Social Space: Rimbaud and the Paris Commune

By: Ross, Kristin

Price: $7.50

Seller ID: 0816616876

ISBN: 0816616876

Condition: USED


The 1870s in France - Rimbaud's moment, and the subject of this book - is a decade virtually ignored in most standard histories of France. Yet it was the moment of two significant spatial events: France's expansion on a global scale, and, in the spring of 1871, the brief existence of the Paris Commune - the construction of revolutionary urban space. Arguing that space, as a social fact, is always political and strategic, Kristen Ross has written a book that is at once history and geography of the Commune's anarchist culture - its political language and social relations, its values, strategies,...

Love in the Western World

By: Rougemont, Denis de

Price: $6.00

Publisher: PRINCETON UNIV PR:

Seller ID: 0691013934

ISBN: 0691013934

Condition: USED


In this classic work, often described as "The History of the Rise, Decline, and Fall of the Love Affair," Denis de Rougemont explores the psychology of love from the legend of Tristan and Isolde to Hollywood. At the heart of his ever-relevant inquiry is the inescapable conflict in the West between marriage and passion--the first associated with social and religious responsiblity and the second with anarchic, unappeasable love as celebrated by the troubadours of medieval Provence. These early poets, according to de Rougemont, spoke the words of an Eros-centered theology, and it was through t... View more info

Nature of Narrative: Revised and Expanded

By: Scholes, RObert

Price: $7.00

Publisher: OXFORD UNIV PR:

Edition: 40

Seller ID: 9780195151756

ISBN: 0195151755

Condition: USED


For the past forty years The Nature of Narrative has been a seminal work for literary students, teachers, writers, and scholars. Countering the tendency to view the novel as the paradigm case of literary narrative, authors Robert Scholes and Robert Kellogg in the original edition offered a compelling history of the genre narrative from antiquity to the twentieth-century, even as they carried out their main task of describing and analyzing the nature of narrative's main elements: meaning, character, plot, and point of view. Their history emphasized the broad sweep of literary narrative from anc... View more info

Relays: Literature as an Epoch of the Postal System (Writing Science)

By: Siegert, Bernhard

Price: $12.50

Publisher: STANFORD UNIV PR:

Seller ID: 9780804732383

ISBN: 0804732388

Condition: USED


This book examines how one aspect of the social and technological situation of literature--namely, the postal system--determined how literature was produced and what was produced within literature. Language itself has the structure of a relay, where what is transmitted depends on a prior withholding. The social arrangements and technologies for achieving this transmission thus have had a particularly powerful impact on the imagination of literature as a medium. The book has three parts. The first part reconstructs the postal conditions of classic and Romantic literature: the invention of p... View more info

Modern Skeletons takes us on a lively trip from the New Criticism to cyberspace. For James Sosnoski literar criticism is always a reading of cultures and becomes indeed a form of culture building: critics as storytellers, not as scientists. View more info

To Wake the Nations: Race in the Making of American Literature

By: Sundquist, Eric J.

Price: $15.00

Publisher: HARVARD UNIV PR:

Seller ID: 9780674893313

ISBN: 067489331X

Condition: USED


This powerful book argues that white culture in America does not exist apart from black culture. The revolution of the rights of man that established this country collided long ago with the system of slavery, and we have been trying to reestablish a steady course for ourselves ever since. "To Wake the Nations" is urgent and rousing: we have integrated our buses, schools, and factories, but not the canon of American literature. That is the task Eric Sundquist has assumed in a book that ranges from politics to literature, from Uncle Remus to African American spirituals. But the hallmark of t... View more info

Condition: USED


This "little history" takes on a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from "The Epic of Gilgamesh" to "Harry Potter." John Sutherland is perfectly suited to the task. He has researched, taught, and written on virtually every area of literature, and his infectious passion for books and reading has defined his own life. Now he guides young readers and the grown-ups in their lives on an entertaining journey "through the wardrobe" to a greater awareness of how literature from across the world can transport us and help us to make sense of what it mean...
