Styles of extinction : Cormac McCarthy's The road by Julian Murphet( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Styles of Extinction: Cormac McCarthy's The Road brings together several leading literary scholars, one major philosopher, as well as a handful of emerging critical voices, all of whom deploy their own specialist methods in order to think through this bestselling, Zeitgeist-defining event of contemporary literature. There are two dominant modes of analysis gathered here: the first, performed by Julian Murphet, Paul Sheehan, and Mark Steven, is to locate the novel within its political, spiritual, and economic climates; the second, whose exponents include Paul Patton, Sean Pryor, Chris Danta, and Grace Hellyer, deals with the formal dimensions of McCarthy's characteristically brilliant prose in relation to its sparse narrative. By coupling historically sensitive analysis with incisive formal criticism, the contributors not only account for the matchless form of this exemplary novel; they also suggest that The Road has something unique to disclose about the world we inhabit
Sounding modernism : rhythm and sonic mediation in modern literature and film by Australasian Association for Literature( )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in English and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a range of essays by eminent and emergent scholars working at the intersection of modern literary, cinema and sound studies. The individual studies ask what specific sonorous qualities are capable of being registered by different modern media, and how sonic transpositions and transferences across media affect the ways in which human subjects attend to modern soundscapes. Script, groove, electrical current, magnetic imprint, phonographic vibration: as the contributors show, sound traverses these and other material platforms to become an insistent ground-note of modern aesthetics, one not yet adequately integrated into critical accounts of the period. This collection also provides a commanding and wide-ranging investigation of the conditions under which modernists tapped technically into the rhythms, echoes and sonic architectures of their worlds
Strong opinions : J.M. Coetzee and the authority of contemporary fiction by Chris Danta( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume shows how Coetzee makes us reconsider certain basic formal and existential questions such as the nature of literary realism and the authority of the author
Todd Solondz by Julian Murphet( )

10 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Films like Welcome to the dollhouse and Happiness established Todd Solondz as independent cinema's premier satirist. Blending a trademark black humor into atmospheres of grueling bleakness, Solondz repeatedly takes moviegoers into a bland suburban junk space peopled by the damaged, the neglected, and the depraved. Julian Murphet appraises the career of the controversial, if increasingly ignored, indie film auteur. Through close readings and a discussion with the director, Murphet dissects how Solondz's themes and techniques serve stories laden with hot-button topics like pedophilia, rape, and family and systemic cruelty. Solondz's uncompromising return to the same motifs, stylistic choices, and characters rejects any idea of aesthetic progression. Instead, he embraces an art of diminishing returns that satirizes the laws of valuation sustaining what we call cinema."
Rancière and literature by Grace Hellyer( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These 13 essays consolidate and critique Rancière's work on literature, from his archival investigations of the literary efforts of 19th-century workers to his engagements with specific novelists and poets, and from his concept of 'literarity' to his central positioning of the novel in his account of the three 'regimes' of literary practice
Modernism and Masculinity by Natalya Lusty( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernism and Masculinity investigates the varied dimensions and manifestations of masculinity in the modernist period. Thirteen essays from leading scholars reframe critical trends in modernist studies by examining distinctive features of modernist literary and cultural work through the lens of masculinity and male privilege. The volume attends to masculinity as an unstable horizon of gendered ideologies, subjectivities and representational practices, allowing for fresh interdisciplinary treatments of celebrated and lesser-known authors, artists and theorists such as D.H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, Henry Roth, Theodor Adorno and Paul Robeson as well as modernist avant-garde movements such as vorticism, surrealism and futurism. As diverse as the masculinities that were played out across the early twentieth century, the approaches and arguments featured in this collection will appeal especially to scholars and students of modernist literature and culture, gender studies and English literature more broadly"--
Faulkner's media romance by Julian Murphet( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faulkner's Media Romance reappraises William Faulkner's major fiction - from Flags in the Dust through to Absalom, Absalom! - through a media-historical lens. It proposes that Faulkner's long-standing attraction to the paradigms of romance was disciplined and masked by the recurrent use of metaphorical figures borrowed from the new media ecology. Murphet argues that Faulkner dressed up his romance materials in the technological garb of radio, phonography, photography, and cinema, along with the transportation networks of road and air that were being installed in the 1920s. Though this argument, he asserts that Faulkner's modernism emerges from a fraught but productive interplay between his anachronistic predilection for chivalric clichés and his extraordinary knowledge and interest in the most up-to-date media institutions and forms. Rather than see Faulkner as an author divided, one who worked for money in the magazines and studios while producing serious fiction despite their symbolic economies, Murphet demonstrates how profoundly his mature art was shot through with the figures and dynamics of the materials he publicly repudiated . The result is a richer and more nuanced understanding of the dialectics of Faulkner's art. -- from dust jacket
Literature and race in Los Angeles by Julian Murphet( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harnessing some of the theoretical insights of Henri Lefebvre and the 'LA school' of geographers, Murphet demonstrates the versatility of literary production in LA and speculates about the fortunes of literature in a predominantly visual culture."--Jacket
Literature and visual technologies : writing after cinema by Julian Murphet( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Film technology has existed for more than a century, yet there has still been little consideration of its impact on literary culture. Literature and Visual Technologies seeks to redress this neglected area by considering the ways in which film has infiltrated and altered modern literary forms. Contributions from leading scholars trace the interaction of visual and literary cultures from the first shocked receptions of the 'movies' to the cross-contamination of textual and filmic forms in postmodern writing. The book provides new insights into the critical, institutional and theoretical mediation of film, as well as defining its significance in the work of key literary figures such as Joyce, H.D. Stein, Proust and Beckett."--Jacket

Multimedia modernism : literature and the Anglo-American avant-garde by Julian Murphet( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flann O'Brien and modernism by Julian Murphet( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new anthology on the fiction of Flann O'Brien brings a much-needed refreshment to the state of scholarship on this increasingly recognised but still widely misunderstood 'second generation' modernist. Rather than construe him as a postmodernist, it correctly locates O'Brien's work as the product of a late modernist sensibility and cultural context. Similarly, while there should be no doubt of his Irishness, and his profound debts to Irish language, history and culture, this collection seeks to understand O'Brien's nationally sensitive achievement as the work of an internationalist whose preoccupations reflect global modernist trends. The distinct themes and concerns tracked in Flann O'Brien and Modernism include characterization in branching narrative forms; the ethics and paradoxes of naming; parody and homage; lies and deception; theatricality; sexuality; technology and transport; and the inevitable matter of drink and intoxication. Taken together, these specific topics construct a mosaic image of O'Brien as an exemplary modernist auteur, abreast of all the most salient philosophical and technical concerns affecting literary production in the period immediately before and after World War Two. Written by a range of modernist scholars, from the well-established to the emergent, the collection speaks directly to many of the dominant concerns in modernist studies today, and uses its single-author focus to refract modernist scholarship along a spectrum of formal, cultural, and political problems definitive of the modern period"--
William Faulkner in the media ecology by Stefan Solomon( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intersecting with twentieth-century technology such as photography, film, and sound recording, these twelve essays portray Faulkner as not only as a writer looking back on the history of the U.S. South, but also as a screenwriter, aviator, and celebrity
Communism and poetry : writing against capital by Ruth Jennison( )

9 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Communism and Poetry: Writing Against Capital addresses the relationship between an upsurge in collective political practice around the world since 2000, and the crystallization of newly engaged forms of poetry. Considering an array of perspectives—poets, poet-critics, activists and theorists—these essays shed new light on the active interface between emancipatory political thought and poetic production and explore how poetry and the new communism are creating mutually innovative forms of thought and activity, supercharging the utopian imagination. Drawing inspiration from past connections between communism and poetry, and theorizing new directions over the years ahead, the volume models a much-needed critical solidarity with creative strategies in the present conjuncture to activate movements of resistance, on the streets and in verse
Narrative and media by Rosemary Huisman( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrative and Media applies contemporary narrative theory to media texts, including film, television, radio, advertising, and print journalism. Drawing on research in structuralist and post-structuralist theory, as well as functional grammar and image analysis, the book explains the narrative techniques which shape media texts and offers interpretive tools for analysing meaning and ideology. Each section looks at particular media forms and shows how elements such as chronology, character, and focalization are realized in specific texts. As the boundaries between entertainment and information i
