Frankenstein and the Critics

by Various Artists

“It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld my man completed ..."The summer of 1816 was by all accounts a cold and wet one. After the April 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia, global temperatures dropped and a rainy, monsoon-like drizzle settled in over Northern Europe. In a holiday villa on the shores of Lake Geneva, a young English poet and his lover, the guests of another poet, discouraged from outdoor pursuits, sat discussing the callousness of nature and speculating about the fashionable subject of "galvanism." Was it possible to reanimate a corpse? The villa was Byron's. The other poet was Shelley. His fiancée, 19-year-old Mary Shelley (née Godwin), was in post-partum distress.   Byron, inspired by a book of supernatural tales, suggested that each member of the...

Getting Past Coetzee

by Hedley Twidle

Ten years ago, I was commissioned by a famous poet-editor to write a profile of Coetzee for a London review. At the time, the offer was a big break, and could have led to great things. I was fresh out of university and the editor was high-up at Faber and Faber, a talent scout for The New Yorker. But it never got written.Instead of providing a controlled and judicious survey of the oeuvre, I found myself obsessed by minor details on the outskirts of his work. The grim memoir Youth (2002) had just appeared and I wrote at length about the stockings full of clotting cheese that young "John" hangs up in his kitchen - proof of his extreme thriftiness, in life as in prose. The fish fingers that he fries in olive oil in a London garret, trying to emulate the Mediterranean diet of Ford Madox Ford: ...

Northanger Abbey (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

NORTHANGER ABBEY was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for public¬cation, though she had previously made a start on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. According to Cassandra Austen's Memorandum, Susan (as it was first called) was written circa 1798-99.Seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland is one of ten children of a country clergyman. Although a tomboy in her childhood, by the age of 17 she is "in training for a heroine" and is excessively fond of reading Gothic novels, among which Ann Radcliffe's Mysteries of Udolpho is a favourite. Catherine is invited by the Allens, her wealthier neighbours in Fullerton, to accompany them to visit the town of Bath and partake in the winter season of balls, theatre and other social delights. Although initially the excitement o...

Revolt of the Wildlife

by Idson Charles

Africa has always been the habitat of all the wild animals that spark humans’ attention and curiosity. Hunters from around the world would go to Africa to capture many of these wild animals and utilize them for many purposes. Two of the main reasons for exploiting these wild creatures are for the sole purpose of entertainment and profit.
Jack Anderson has always been intrigued by the fierce nature of the lions. When he was a young boy, he would watch the Wildlife Channel of Africa and fantasize about a world where all wild animals could be taught human traits and co-exist with mankind. He believed that all animals share emotions similar to ours—humans.
Well, Jack’s fantasy was no longer a fantasy when he moved to Africa, where he encountered the thrill of life. . . . Fas...

"The War as it Should Have Been": Metaphor and Mental Spaces in David Jones' In Parenthesis

by Keely Kiczenski

In this comprehensive essay, I re-frame David Jones' modern First World War epic poem In Parenthesis while deploying theories of conceptual metaphor, mental spaces, and perception of time, much as Jones re-framed the War within his distinct style of form and narrative. Rich with illustrated figures, my argument is not only built from the careful consideration of ideas put forth by literary critics like T.S. Eliot, but it is also grounded with work by renowned cognitive scientists like George Lakoff and (monk riddle teller) Gilles Fauconnier. The ability to analyze literature systematically and in bio-psychological context is a true innovation, much like David Jones’ exquisite poem itself.
The field of cognitive poetics encourages us to experiment in literary criticism. Psycho...

How to Write a Children's Picture Book Volume III: Figures of Speech

by Eve Heidi Bine-Stock

Recommended by writing instructors and award-winning authors.Many of us think of children's picture books as being written mostly with simple declarative sentences. What an eye-opener to learn that they are actually filled with delightful figures of speech. I am not talking here about the common figures of speech we learn about in grade school: simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, hyperbole and personification. I am talking about more subtle and sophisticated figures of speech which we may not even recognize as figures at all (until they are pointed out to us), but their use gives stories a charm and freshness that stands up to repeated readings. These figures have names which are eminently forgettable but the figures themselves make the stories in which they appear eminently memorable. In ...

Harmony of disenchantment

The look of a disenchanted neapolitan violinist is the thread that connects the nodes of its existence. The magic of Budapest as a backdrop to the sinking of his illusions; yet it is precisely the ability to react to any defeat will make him a kind of skillful surfer, able to ride the waves most impressive. In this eternal resume lies, perhaps, the harmony that governs his life....

The Works of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim (Women in Print)

by Hrotsvitha and David H. Price

Historical assessments of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim are liberally adorned with the word "first." After all, she was the first major medieval woman author, the first German woman writer in print, the first post-classical playwright, as well as the first German to write a literary work on the Faust-theme, and she is sometimes said to have been the first woman historian.These are landmarks to be sure. Yet Hrotsvit's place in cultural history is even more significant than such an impressive number of firsts might indicate, for she has reemerged to become a living part of European literature, a singular phenomenon for a tenth-century author. She is not only the earliest writer, of either gender, to have a secure place in the German literary canon, but also the only author from her period whose li...

Some Reflections Upon Marriage (Women in Print)

by Mary Astell and John A. Dussinger

"If all Men are born Free, how is it that all Women are born Slaves?" For many parts of the world such a bold protest resonates as tellingly today as it did three hundred years ago in England when Mary Astell (1666-1731) confronted the appalling moral and legal subordination of women, rich and poor alike, who entered into matrimony with the cards stacked heavily in the husband's favor. It is Astell's unstinting recognition of the arbitrary restraints imposed on women and her vigorous writing on their behalf that make her one of the earliest English feminists in history. Although prominent in her lifetime as the author of a number of treatises on women's education as well as on theological, philosophical, and political subjects, Astell was nearly forgotten by the nineteenth century.

The First Class: Transits of Brazilian Literature Abroad

by Pedro Meira Monteiro and Carola Saavedra

What does a professor – Brazilian or otherwise – think and do on the first day of class, standing before a group of “foreign” students to talk about Brazilian literature? This apparently simple question that gave rise to the essays gathered in this book opens a series of other questions: Who is this professor? How did he or she go about planning that first class? What challenges do professors face when teaching the literature of a country different from that of their students, and in a language which is, in most cases, likewise unfamiliar to them? The result is not just an excellent sampling of experiences and reflections – it is also an homage, an elegy to those who have transformed Brazilian literature itself into a globetrotting, thought-provoking literary character.que trata ...

The Institution of Criticism

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas's concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays origina...

Reappraisals: Shifting Alignments in Postwar Critical Theory

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

Reappraisals is a provocative account of the development of modern critical theory in Germany and the United States. Focusing on the period since World War II, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores key debates on the function of critical theory, illuminating the diverse positions and alliances among the participants. Bringing together six essays, as well as new introductory and concluding chapters, Hohendahl interprets and subjects to critical scrutiny many of the central ideas of the Frankfurt School. He first maps the trajectory of neomarxist criticism in Germany to the 1980s. Individual chapters then focus on the work of Georg Lukacs, Theodor W. Adorno, and Jürgen Habermas, and on such issues as the politicization of German criticism after 1965 under the influence of the Frankfurt School....

Building a National Literature: The Case of Germany, 1830 - 1870

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl and Renate Baron Franciscono

Building a National Literature boldly takes issue with traditional literary criticism for its failure to explain how literature as a body is created and shaped by institutional forces. Peter Uwe Hohendahl approaches literary history by focusing on the material and ideological structures that determine the canonical status of writers and works. He examines important elements in the making of a national literature, including the political and literary public sphere, the theory and practice of literary criticism, and the emergence of academic criticism as literary history. Hohendahl considers such key aspects of the process in Germany as the rise of liberalism and nationalism, the delineation of the borders of German literature, the idea of its history, the understanding of its cultural funct...
