Mario Vargas Llosa : a collection of critical essays by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa has been acclaimed throughout the literary world as one of Latin America's finest writers, yet until recently little has been written about his work in English. While his work has the subject of an increasing flow of critical commentary in Spanish and his major novels have been translated into English, this is the first full-scale critical treatment of Vargas Llosa published in the English language. These articles by a number of established writers and critics appraise Vargas Llosa's individual novels as well as the body of his work. The Time of the Hero, The Green House, Conversation in The Cathedral, and Pantale n y las visitadoras are examined in order of publication, A second group of more general essays ranges across Vargas Llosa's work and explores pervasive themes and concerns. Two pieces by Jos?Miguel Oviedo serve as a coda. In a bilingual interview, Oviedo and Vargas Llosa discuss Vargas Llosa's novel La t a Julia y el escribidor. Oviedo concludes with a critical discussion of that novel. A Vargas Llosa chronology compiled by the editors is also included. Most of these essays originally appeared in 1977 as a special issue of Texas Studies in Literature and Language. The concluding essay by Oviedo was prepared especially for this edition

Beckett in black and red : the translations for Nancy Cunard's Negro (1934)( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1934, Nancy Cunard published Negro: An Anthology, which brought together more than two hundred contributions, serving as a plea for racial justice, an expose of black oppression, and a hymn to black achievement and endurance. The anthology stands as a virtual ethnography of 1930s racial, historic, artistic, political, and economic culture. Samuel Beckett, a close friend of the flamboyant and unconventional Cunard, translated nineteen of the contributions for Negro, constituting Beckett's largest single prose publication." "Beckett has traditionally been viewed as an apolitical postmodernist rather than as a willing and major participant in Negro's racial, political, and aesthetic agenda. In Beckett in Black and Red, Friedman reevaluates Beckett's contribution to the project, reconciling the humanism of his life and work and valuing him as a man deeply engaged with the greatest public issues of his time."--Jacket
Situating college English : lessons from an American university( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes up, and takes seriously, the institutional sites and pedagogical investments of professional identity for college English teachers and examines how these site and investments both constitute and complicate the space of our politics. Drawing on contemporary critical theories, learning technologies, classroom experience, and personal self-reflection, the contributors examine the issues that proceed from our simultaneous occupation of pedagogical and political spaces, institutional and larger sociocultural positions, and differently constructed, empowered, and constrained identities. Their vigilant attention to their own academic practices marks a major step in English studies - a step beyond "political correctness" and toward a more richly principled contextualism and a better situated pedagogical conscience
Modernism and literature : an introduction and reader by Mia Carter( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a comprehensive representation of the exciting, pivotal, and urgent nature of literary Modernism, as well as more recent approaches including the "global turn."

Addressing current as well as historical debates about Modernism, this book includes discussion of the Harlem Renaissance, feminism and women’s writing, international and global movements and anti-imperialism, while acknowledging the variety of competing modernisms. This is the ideal guide for anyone seeking an overview and an in-depth treatment of this complex cultural turn and its foundational texts

Surreal Beckett : Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, and surrealism by Alan Warren Friedman( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surreal Beckett situates Beckett's writings within the context of James Joyce and Surrealism, distinguishing ways in which Beckett forged his own unique path, sometimes in accord with, sometimes at odds with, these two powerful predecessors. Beckett was so deeply enmeshed in Joyce's circle during his early Paris days (1928 - late 1930s) that James Knowlson dubbed them his "Joyce years." But Surrealism and Surrealists rivaled Joyce for Beckett's early and continuing attention, if not affection, so that Raymond Federman called 1929-45 Beckett's "surrealist period." Considering both claims, this volume delves deeper into each argument by obscuring the boundaries between theses differentiating studies. These received wisdoms largely maintain that Beckett's Joycean connection and influence developed a negative impact in his early works, and that Beckett only found his voice when he broke the connection after Joyce's death. Beckett came to accept his own inner darkness as his subject matter, writing in French and using a first-person narrative voice in his fiction and competing personal voices in his plays. Critics have mainly viewed Beckett's Surrealist connections as roughly co-terminus with Joycean ones, and ultimately of little enduring consequence. Surreal Beckett argues that both early influences went much deeper for Beckett as he made his own unique way forward, transforming them, particularly Surrealist ones, into resources that he drew upon his entire career. Ultimately, Beckett endowed his characters with resources sufficient to transcend limitations their surreal circumstances imposed upon them
The turn of the novel by Alan Friedman( Book )

3 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main concern of this book is the development and transformation of the novel during the first part of the twentieth century. To understand the nature of that change, it is important to recognize that the course of fiction was altered not merely by radically new techniques, but by a new radical vision of experience. One of the purposes of this study is to explore the relation between the formal organization of experience in fiction and the ethical assumptions that guide the form. - Introduction
