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...

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

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

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...

Pastoral, Identity, and Memory in the Works of John Banville (Schweizer Anglistische Arbeiten (SAA) Book 144)

by Alexander G.Z. Myers

John Banvilles works waver indecisively between modernism and postmodernism. This study offers a hitherto unexplored vista on his works and argues that Banville is a post-/modern pastoralist. The pastoral lens opens new vistas to Banville's central concerns: the collusion of ethics and aesthetics, self-identification in narrative, and the topography of the troubled mind. Banvilles characters harbour an Arcadia of the unconscious conditioned by a subtext of nostalgia. Caught in a crisis, his characters explore, subvert and transform the pastoral mode into an ambiguous quest for a stable self....

Biblical Research: (In defense of "Thrisc")

by Siaosi Tusitala

Self explanatory......enhancements, references, supporting Biblical texts to the original
proposition in my FICTIONAL ("ufology"/religion) proposals. In order to answer possible challenges and amplify how I came to the conclusions advanced.

*No slight intended to the Saints, Apostles or Prophets. The platform wasn't accepting my pen name, so as a tongue in cheek gesture, I decided on "John of Patmos". Simply to get beyond that "block". Since the primary entire text is Biblical text, rightfully "authorship" does belong to all of the contributors inspired to write their "Books". Far superior to my humble attempts.

2,000+ years and the same thinking, reasoning, explanations, actions and reactions of humans as occurs today! When "Ufologists" attempt to bolster...

Walden

by Henry David Thoreau

First published in 1854, Walden recounts American philosopher and naturalist Henry David Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and, ultimately, manual for self-reliance.Walden enjoyed some success upon its release, but still took five years to sell 2,000 copies, and then went out of print until Thoreau’s death in 1862. Despite its slow beginnings, later critics have praised it as an American classic that explores natural simplicity, harmony, and beauty. The poet Robert Frost wrote of Thoreau, "In one bo...

Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontë

Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Brontë, was asked to pay some of the publication costs.Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a co...

Crime and Punishment

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Through the story of the brilliant but conflicted young Raskolnikov and the murder he commits, Fyodor Dostoyevsky explores the theme of redemption through suffering. “Crime and Punishment” put Dostoyevsky at the forefront of Russian writers when it appeared in 1866 and is now one of the most famous and influential novels in world literature.The poverty-stricken Raskolnikov, a talented student, devises a theory about extraordinary men being above the law, since in their brilliance they think “new thoughts” and so contribute to society. He then sets out to prove his theory by murdering a vile, cynical old pawnbroker and her sister. The act brings Raskolnikov into contact with his own buried conscience and with two characters — the deeply religious Sonia, who has endured great suffe...

Shakespeare’s Oral Certification Examination Annotated: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.I died July 25, 2015, in Hightstown, New Jersey. My scholarship is the bedrock for the serious study of British drama to 1770. Any graduate student or academic working on the plays or the theatrical culture of this period has to start with me. In addition to my comprehensive Tudor and Stuart Stage, I wrote a wide range of works on Shakespeare and other figures of the English Renaissance. My essay "Shakespeare's Celibate Stage," originally published in the inaugural issue of The New and Improved Shakespeare Survey With Textual Analysis, has been widely reprinted. I edited several works for modern editions, including Othello, Hamlet, All Fools, and The Alchemist.I raised a literary stir when I edited and wrote the preface to a hitherto unknown 1577 text called The Arte o...
