The State of Children's Literature in Ethiopia: With Critical Views

Children's literature criticism comprises both generalists' discussions of the relationship between children's literature and literary theory as well as a literary analysis of specific work or works of literature. But practical children’s literary criticism tends to limit its scope in content analysis giving emphasis for the psychological and educational merits of the literature. This made children literature an under studied young genre in the world of literary scholarship. This is also a reality in Ethiopian Children’s Literature. Even if the history of writing for children in the country can be traced back to the time where writing in the main stream literature began no serious literary criticism is undergone in the area and most books for children are limited to sketchy preschool story books.

Trauma and its aftermath pose acute problems for historical representation and understanding. InWriting History, Writing Trauma, Dominick LaCapra critically analyzes attempts by theorists and literary critics to come to terms with trauma and with the crucial role post-traumatic testimonies - notably Holocaust testimonies - assume in thought and in writing.

This updated edition includes a substantive new preface that reconsiders some of the issues raised in the book.
A Quest for Insularity A Quest for Insularity Новинка

A Quest for Insularity

What is 'island'? And what is 'island writing'? The author explores these concepts through a close reading of ‘A Voyage to New Guinea, and the Moluccas’, an account of Thomas Forrest’s travels in the Malay Archipelago. Having more to offer than merely ethnographical and scientific data, the report is a cultural product anchored in the realm of eighteenth-century English travel writing, with its distinctive literary conventions. Additionally, it is a text in which the instability of meaning parallels the definitional precariousness of ‘island’ that historically defies monolithic interpretation of scholars in cartography, geography and literary studies. At a disciplinary crossroads, 'A Quest for Insularity' should be of interest to scholars and students of textual interpretation, eighteenth-century English print culture and literary tradition, European discovery literature, and Southeast Asian maritime history.

The Best Minds of My Generation: A Literary History of the Beats

In 1977, twenty years after the publication of his landmark poem 'Howl' and Jack Kerouac's On the Road, Allen Ginsberg decided it was time to teach a course on the literary history of the Beat Generation. Through this course, Ginsberg saw an opportunity to present a complete history of Beat Literature and also to record and preserve his own personal stories and memories, ones that might have otherwise been lost to history. The result was a deeply intimate, candid and illuminating set of lectures, which form the basis of this book. Compiled and edited by renowned Beat scholar Bill Morgan, and with an introduction by Anne Waldman, The Best Minds of My Generation presents the lectures in edited form, revealing the Beats as Ginsberg knew them: friends, confidantes, literary mentors, and fellow revolutionaries.In The Best Minds of My Generation, Ginsberg gives us the convoluted origin story of the "Beat" idea, recounts anecdotes of meeting Kerouac, Burroughs, and other figures for the first time, elucidates the importance of music, and particularly jazz rhythms, to Beat writing, discusses their many influences - literary, pharmaceutical and spiritual - and paints a portrait of a group who were leading a literary revolution. A unique document that works both as historical record and unconventional memoir, The Best Minds of My Generation is a vivid, personal and eye-opening look at one of the most important literary movements of the twentieth century.

Catechisms and Women's Writing in Seventeenth-Century England Catechisms and Women's Writing in Seventeenth-Century England Новинка

Catechisms and Women's Writing in Seventeenth-Century England

Catechisms and Women's Writing in Seventeenth-Century England is a study of early modern women's literary use of catechizing. Paula McQuade examines original works composed by women - both in manuscript and print, as well as women's copying and redacting of catechisms - and construction of these materials from other sources. By studying female catechists, McQuade shows how early modern women used the power and authority granted to them as mothers to teach religious doctrine, to demonstrate their linguistic skills, to engage sympathetically with Catholic devotional texts, and to comment on matters of contemporary religious and political import - activities that many scholars have considered the sole prerogative of clergymen. This book addresses the question of women's literary production in early modern England, demonstrating that reading and writing of catechisms were crucial sites of women's literary engagements during this time.
The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Disability The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Disability Новинка

The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Disability

This Companion analyzes the representation of disability in literatures in English, including American and postcolonial writing, across all major time periods and through a variety of critical approaches.

With contributions from major figures in literary disability studies, The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Disability covers a wide range of impairments, including cognitive difference, neurobehavioral conditions, and mental and chronic illnesses. This book shows how disability demands innovation in literary form and aesthetics, challenges the notion of a human 'norm' in the writing of character, and redraws the ways in which writing makes meaning of the broad spectrum of humanity. It will be a key resource for students and teachers of disability and literary studies.

Race, Transnationalism, and Nineteenth-Century American Literary Studies Race, Transnationalism, and Nineteenth-Century American Literary Studies Новинка

Race, Transnationalism, and Nineteenth-Century American Literary Studies

Inspired by Toni Morrison's call for an interracial approach to American literature, and by recent efforts to globalize American literary studies, Race, Transnationalism, and Nineteenth-Century American Literary Studies ranges widely in its case-study approach to canonical and non-canonical authors. Leading critic Robert S. Levine considers Cooper, Hawthorne, Stowe, Melville, and other nineteenth-century American writers alongside less well known African American figures such as Nathaniel Paul and Sutton Griggs. He pays close attention to racial representations and ideology in nineteenth-century American writing, while exploring the inevitable tension between the local and the global in this writing. Levine addresses transatlanticism, the Black Atlantic, citizenship, empire, temperance, climate change, black nationalism, book history, temporality, Kantian transnational aesthetics, and a number of other issues. The book also provides a compelling critical frame for understanding developments in American literary studies over the past twenty-five years.
Visualizing Blackness and the Creation of the African American Literary Tradition Visualizing Blackness and the Creation of the African American Literary Tradition Новинка

Visualizing Blackness and the Creation of the African American Literary Tradition

Negative stereotypes of African Americans have long been disseminated through the visual arts. This original and incisive study examines how black writers use visual tropes as literary devices to challenge readers' conceptions of black identity. Lena Hill charts two hundred years of African American literary history, from Phillis Wheatley to Ralph Ellison, and engages with a variety of canonical and lesser-known writers. Chapters interweave literary history, museum culture, and visual analysis of numerous illustrations with close readings of Booker T. Washington, Gwendolyn Bennett, Zora Neale Hurston, Melvin Tolson, and others. Together, these sections register the degree to which African American writers rely on vision - its modes, consequences, and insights - to demonstrate black intellectual and cultural sophistication. Hill's provocative study will interest scholars and students of African American literature and American literature more broadly.
Voice in Later Medieval English Literature Voice in Later Medieval English Literature Новинка

Voice in Later Medieval English Literature

David Lawton approaches later medieval English vernacular culture in terms of voice. As texts and discourses shift in translation and in use from one language to another, antecedent texts are revoiced in ways that recreate them (as 'public interiorities') without effacing their history or future. The approach yields important insights into the voice work of late medieval poets, especially Langland and Chaucer, and also their fifteenth-century successors, who treat their work as they have treated their precursors. It also helps illuminate vernacular religious writing and its aspirations, and it addresses literary and cultural change, such as the effect of censorship and increasing political instability in and beyond the fifteenth century. Lawton also proposes his emphasis on voice as a literary tool of broad application, and his book has a bold and comparative sweep that encompasses the Pauline letters, Augustine's Confessions, the classical precedents of Virgil and Ovid, medieval contemporaries like Machaut and Petrarch, extra-literary artists like Monteverdi, later poets such as Wordsworth, Heaney and Paul Valery, and moderns such as Jarry and Proust. What justifies such parallels, the author claims, is that late medieval texts constitute the foundation of a literary history of voice that extends to modernity. The book's energy is therefore devoted to the transformative reading of later medieval texts, in order to show their original and ongoing importance as voice work.

A History of European Literature A History of European Literature Новинка

A History of European Literature

Walter Cohen argues that the history of European literature and of each of its standard periods can be illuminated by comparative consideration of the different literary languages within Europe and of the relationship of European literature to world literature. He explores the five main, overlapping stages of the global history of literature, from the ancient to the present, and argues that the ongoing relationship of European literature to other parts of the world emerges most clearly at the level not of theme or mimesis but of form. One conclusion is that literary history possesses a certain systematicity. Another is that language and literature are not only the products of major historical change but also its agents. Such claims, finally, depend on rejecting the opposition between the general and the specific, between synthetic and local knowledge.

Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences Новинка

Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences

In this important and innovative study, Jon Klancher shows how the Romantic age produced a new discourse of the 'Arts and Sciences' by reconfiguring the Enlightenment's idea of knowledge and by creating new kinds of cultural institutions with unprecedented public impact. He investigates the work of poets, lecturers, moral philosophers, scientists and literary critics - including Coleridge, Godwin, Bentham, Davy, Wordsworth, Robinson, Shelley and Hunt - and traces their response to book collectors and bibliographers, art-and-science administrators, painters, engravers, natural philosophers, radical journalists, editors and reviewers. Taking a historical and cross-disciplinary approach, he opens up Romantic literary and critical writing to transformations in the history of science, history of the book, art history, and the little-known history of arts-and-sciences administration that linked early-modern projects to nineteenth- and twentieth-century modes of organizing 'knowledges'. His conclusions transform the ways we think about knowledge, both in the Romantic period and in our own.

Sister Narratives

Sister Narratives investigates the literary relationship of Margaret Drabble's The Waterfall and A. S. Byatt's Possession: A Romance by claiming that despite the actual sisterhood of the novelists the interrelationship of the 19th-century genres of the romance and the Bildungsroman establishes a literary sisterhood between these two 20th-century novels and the 19th-century female literary tradition. By reworking such female literary "myths" as Jane Eyre, The Mill on the Floss, Jane Austen's novel of manners as well as the abundant spatial imagery of the 19th-century female literary tradition Drabble's and Byatt's works create an intricate intertextual relationship with each other and their foremothers' writing even though the two authors differ so much from a lot of aspects.

Slave Mother-Child Relationship

This book explores slave mother-child relationship in Tony Morrison’s Beloved and Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. The role of women and mothers in American slave history is demonstrated to understand the slave women and mothers’ representation in both selected works. Black slave women and mothers’ representation in the literary works about slavery is a main point of the exploration. For the purpose of the assessment, Morrison and Jacobs’ works are mainly chosen to be analyzed; however, some other sample slave narratives are also used to further investigate the women and mothers’ representation in literary works. This piece of writing mostly attempts to find whether there is a slave mother-child relationship or not and how it is portrayed in both works.

The History of British Literature on Film, 1895-2015

From The Death of Nancy Sykes (1897) to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) and beyond, cinematic adaptations of British literature participate in a complex and fascinating history. The History of British Literature on Film, 1895-2015 is the only comprehensive narration of cinema's 100-year-old love affair with British literature. Unlike previous studies of literature and film, which tend to privilege particular authors such as Shakespeare and Jane Austen, or particular texts such as Frankenstein, or particular literary periods such as Medieval, this volume considers the multiple functions of filmed British literature as a cinematic subject in its own right—one reflecting the specific political and aesthetic priorities of different national and historical cinemas. In what ways has the British literary canon authorized and influenced the history and aesthetics of film, and in what ways has filmed British literature both affirmed and challenged the very idea of literary canonicity? Seeking to answer these and other key questions, this indispensable study shows how these adaptations emerged from and continue to shape the social, artistic, and commercial aspects of film history.

David Lawton approaches later medieval English vernacular culture in terms of voice. As texts and discourses shift in translation and in use from one language to another, antecedent texts are revoiced in ways that recreate them (as 'public interiorities') without effacing their history or future. The approach yields important insights into the voice work of late medieval poets, especially Langland and Chaucer, and also their fifteenth-century successors, who treat their work as they have treated their precursors. It also helps illuminate vernacular religious writing and its aspirations, and it addresses literary and cultural change, such as the effect of censorship and increasing political instability in and beyond the fifteenth century. Lawton also proposes his emphasis on voice as a literary tool of broad application, and his book has a bold and comparative sweep that encompasses the Pauline letters, Augustine's Confessions, the classical precedents of Virgil and Ovid, medieval contemporaries like Machaut and Petrarch, extra-literary artists like Monteverdi, later poets such as Wordsworth, Heaney and Paul Valery, and moderns such as Jarry and Proust. What justifies such parallels, the author claims, is that late medieval texts constitute the foundation of a literary history of voice that extends to modernity. The book's energy is therefore devoted to the transformative reading of later medieval texts, in order to show their original and ongoing importance as voice work.
