Testaments Betrayed: An Essay in Nine Parts

By: Kundera, Milan

Price: $6.00

Publisher: HARPER COLLINS:

Seller ID: 9780060927516

ISBN: 0060927518

Condition: USED


A brilliant and thought-provoking essay from one of the twentieth century's masters of fiction, Testaments Betrayed is written like a novel: the same characters appear and reappear throughout the nine parts of the book, as do the principal themes that preoccupy the author. Kundera is a passionate defender of the moral rights of the artist and the respect due a work of art and its creator's wishes. The betrayal of both--often by their most passionate proponents--is one of the key ideas that informs this strikingly original and elegant book. View more info

Price: $6.00

Publisher: UNIV OF CHICAGO PR:

ISBN: 0226492834

Condition: USED


How is a nation brought into being? In a detailed examination of crucial texts of eighteenth-century American literature, Christopher Looby argues that the United States was self-consciously enacted through the spoken word. Historical material informs and animates theoretical texts by Derrida, Lacan, and others as Looby unravels the texts of Benjamin Franklin, Charles Brockden Brown, and Hugh Henry Brackenridge and connects them to nation-building, political discourse, and self-creation. Correcting the strong emphasis on the importance of print culture in eighteenth-century America, "Voicing A... View more info
