As psychoanalysis becomes more and more important to literary studies and the accompanying literature bulks larger and larger, students often feel overwhelmed, not knowing where to turn for readings that will open up the subject.

The Shakespearean imagination by Norman N Holland( Book )

31 editions published between 1964 and 1975 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hollands book examines basic issues as how to read a Shakespearean play; why one play is better than another; to what extent we can think of Shakespeare's characters as living people; what are the great themes and symbols that dominate he plays and how they evolved through his play writing career. The book provides an up-to-date summary of the facts of Shakespeare's life and theater, showing how the conditions of that theater affected the products of his imagination. The book establishes two approaches: looking at the plays through the eyes of the age in which Shakespeare lived and wrote and looking at the plays simply with our twentieth century selves

5 readers reading by Norman N Holland( Book )

16 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines how personality, in the sense of character development and identity, affects the way in which we read and interpret information. The first chapter deals with the question of who reads what and how they read it. The second chapter uses "a Rose for Emily" as an example of what people read. The third chapter discusses the conditions under which five particular readers read some short stories. The fourth chapter discusses four principles of literary experience: style seeks itself, defenses must be matched, fantasy projects fantasies, and chapter transforms characteristically. Chapter 6 deals with the evidence gathered in an experiment with five readers. Chapter 7 deals with the terms of subjectivity. Chapter 8 is concerned with the transformation from subjectivity to collectivity. Chapter 9 discusses the cognitive processes. (Ts)

The brain of Robert Frost : a cognitive approach to literature by Norman N Holland( Book )

14 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his newest book, Norman Holland brings brain science to literary criticism. The Brain of Robert Frost combines psychoanalysis with the revolutionary new findings of brain research and cognitive psychology to model the way we create and respond to literature. Holland draws three central ideas from "the mind's new science": the critical "supercharged" period in infancy when individuality is formed; the binding of emotion to intellect deep in the old brain; the top-down, inside-out, feedback processing of language in the new. Then, using Robert Frost as an example both of a writer and a reader, and comparing Frost's reading of a poem to readings by six professors of literature, Holland builds a new, powerful way of thinking about literary criticism and teaching. - Back cover

Literature and the brain by Norman N Holland( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LITERATURE AND THE BRAIN goes straight to the human core of literature when it explains the different ways our brains convert stories, poems, plays, and films into pleasure. When we are deep into a film or book, we find ourselves absorbed, unaware of our bodies or our surroundings. We don't doubt the existence of Spider-Man or Harry Potter, and we have real feelings about these purely imaginary beings. Our brains are behaving oddly, because we know we cannot act to change what we are seeing. This is only one of the special ways our brains behave to with literature, ways that LITERATURE AND THE BRAIN reveals
The second part of King Henry IV by William Shakespeare( Book )

17 editions published between 1965 and 1980 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Melchiori sees 'The Second Part of King Henry IV' as an unplanned sequel to the First Part, deliberately exploiting the popular success of Sir John Falstaff, introduced in Part One. The resulting rich humour gives a comic dimension to the play whi
Meeting movies by Norman N Holland( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Casablanca, for example, provides millions with a sense of satisfaction. Why? How did this movie about World War II satisfy an adolescent boy afraid of "not being a man," but too young to be in the military? How did such an outrageously sentimental film enable Holland (and many others) to deal with the scary state of the world in 1942 and, indeed, ever since?" "Meeting Movies poses such questions again and again. As a professor of literature and film, Holland feels compelled to interpret. Yet, beneath and beyond his intellectualizing, a variety of half-conscious personal considerations and recurring themes color his feelings and hence his interpretations. And this, he claims, is true for all of us."--Jacket

The I and being human by Norman N Holland( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The'I' in the title pertains to the core of self that persists over time. These are challenges that elude people like social scientists, philosophers, or critics of literature and the arts, who would chronicle or explain humanity's doings. This informative, engaging, and joyous book by Norman N. Holland offers a usable model for the aesthetics, psychology, history, and science of the human subject. Holland begins by modeling the self as a theme and variations, constant yet constantly changing. He shows how symbolization, perception, cognition, and memory all contribute to the sense of I, hence how any one I grows out of a specific history and culture but also out of experiences all humans share. Holland proposes a scientific psychology based on his model, fusing the experiments of academic psychology with the insights of psychoanalysis. He illustrates his theory by the lives of George Bernard Shaw, Scott Fitzgerald, and other writers, as well as Freud's patient "Little Hans," in adulthood a famed stage director at the Metropolitan Opera. The I and Being Human attempts nothing less than to draw together aspects of the self, such as objectivity and subjectivity, that have eluded connection. In so doing, Norman Holland offers a rereading of psychoanalysis as a theory of the I."--Provided by publisher
