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

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 923 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

Red modernism : American poetry and the spirit of communism by Mark Steven( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Red Modernism, Mark Steven asserts that modernism was highly attuned--and aesthetically responsive--to the overall spirit of communism. He considers the maturation of American poetry as a longitudinal arc, one that roughly followed the rise of the USSR through the Russian Revolution and its subsequent descent into Stalinism, opening up a hitherto underexplored domain in the political history of avant-garde literature. In doing so, Steven amplifies the resonance among the universal idea of communism, the revolutionary socialist state, and the American modernist poem. Focusing on three of the most significant figures in modernist poetry--Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky--Steven provides a theoretical and historical introduction to modernism's unique sense of communism while revealing how communist ideals and references were deeply embedded in modernist poetry. Moving between these poets and the work of T. S. Eliot, Langston Hughes, Muriel Rukeyser, Gertrude Stein, Wallace Stevens, and many others, the book combines a detailed analysis of technical devices and poetic values with a rich political and economic context. Persuasively charting a history of the avant-garde modernist poem in relation to communism, beginning in the 1910s and reaching into the 1940s, Red Modernism is an audacious examination of the twinned history of politics and poetry"--
Splatter capital : the political economy of gore films by Mark Steven( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Splatter Capital shows how a popular subgenre of cinematic horror has developed a uniquely sensitive perspective on the cycles of capitalism. It argues that the emphatically messy brand of horror mobilized in gore or -splatter- films is extremely responsive to the internal contradictions that threaten the future sustainability of capitalist accumulation. And, while responding to the prospect of that end, splatter promotes an extant truth: capitalist accumulation is and always has been a nightmare of systematized bloodshed. This book provides an account of that nightmare as told through a combination of economic history and filmic analysis. The story it tells will serve as a source of both theoretical and practical knowledge for surviving the horror movie we collectively inhabit.--Provided by publisher

Nietzsche on Film( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : This article tracks the many appearances of Friedrich Nietzsche throughout the history of cinema. It asks how cinema can do Nietzschean philosophy in ways that are unique to the medium. It also asks why the cinematic medium might be so pertinent to Nietzschean philosophy. Adhering to the implicit premise that, as Jacques Derrida once put it, 'there is no totality to Nietzsche's text, not even a fragmentary or aphoristic one, ' the essay's mode of argument avoids reductive totalization and instead comprises a playful sampling of variously Nietzschean manifestations across dissimilar films. It begins with an extended account of Baby Face, a 1933 drama from which the abundant references to Nietzsche were either altered or expunged ahead of theatrical release. It then maps some of the philosophical consistencies across two genres in which characters read Nietzsche with apparent frequency: the comedy and the thriller. While comedies and thrillers both treat Nietzsche and his readers with suspicion, and do so for perceptive historical reasons, the essay then asks what an affirmatively Nietzschean film might look like. It explores this possibility through a discussion of cinematic animation in general and then more specifically via several critically familiar films that self-consciously evolve their aesthetic through Nietzsche's philosophy. The essay concludes by affirming Béla Tarr's final film as one of the medium's greatest realizations of a Nietzschean film-philosophy. The Turin Horse, released in 2011, is exemplary because it takes Nietzsche as a narrative premise only to sublate that premise into a unique visual style

Effect of regional versus local anaesthesia on outcome after arteriovenous fistula creation: a randomised controlled trial( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: Arteriovenous fistulae are the optimum form of vascular access in end-stage renal failure. However, they have a high early failure rate. Regional compared with local anaesthesia results in greater vasodilatation and increases short-term blood flow. This study investigated whether regional compared with local anaesthesia improved medium-term arteriovenous fistula patency. Methods: This observer-blinded, randomised controlled trial was done at three university hospitals in Glasgow, UK. Adults undergoing primary radiocephalic or brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula creation were randomly assigned (1:1; in blocks of eight) using a computer-generated allocation system to receive either local anaesthesia (0·5% L-bupivacaine and 1% lidocaine injected subcutaneously) or regional (brachial plexus block [BPB]) anaesthesia (0·5% L-bupivacaine and 1·5% lidocaine with epinephrine). Patients were excluded if they were coagulopathic, had no suitable vessels, or had a previous failed ipsilateral fistula. The primary endpoint was arteriovenous fistula patency at 3 months. We analysed the data on an intention-to-treat basis. This study was registered (NCT01706354 ) and is complete. Findings: Between Feb 6, 2013, and Dec 4, 2015, 163 patients were assessed for eligibility and 126 patients were randomly assigned to local anaesthesia (n=63) or BPB (n=63). All patients completed follow-up on an intention-to-treat basis. Primary patency at 3 months was higher in the BPB group than the local anaesthesia group (53 [84%] of 63 patients vs 39 [62%] of 63; odds ratio [OR] 3·3 [95% CI 1·4–7·6], p=0·005) and was greater in radiocephalic fistulae (20 [77%] of 26 patients vs 12 [48%] of 25; OR 3·6 [1·4–3·6], p=0·03). There were no significant adverse events related to the procedure. Interpretation: Compared with local anaesthesia, BPB significantly improved 3 month primary patency rates for arteriovenous fistulae.
