Satire by Matthew John Caldwell Hodgart( Book )

47 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satire, according to Jonathan Swift, is a mirror where beholders generally discover everybody's face but their own, and over twenty-four centuries the mirror of satirical literature has taken on many shapes. Yet certain techniques recur continually, certain themes are timeless, and some targets are perennial. Politics (the mismanagement of men by other men) has always been a target of satire, as has the war between sexes. The universality of satire as a mode and creative impulse is demonstrated by the cross-cultural development of lampoon and travesty. Its deep roots and variety are shown by the persistence of allegory, fable, aphorism, and other literary subgenres. Hodgart analyzes satire at some of its most exuberant moments in Western literature, from Aristophanes to Brecht. His analysis is supplemented by a selection and discussion of prints and cartoons. Satire continues to help us make sense of the conventions that seem to have been almost genetically transmitted from their satiric ancestors to our digital contemporaries. This is especially evident in Hodgart's repeated references to satire's predilection for the ephemeral, for camouflaging itself among the everyday, for speaking to the moment, and thus for integrating itself as deeply as possible into society. Brian Connery's new introduction places Hodgart's analysis in its proper place in the development of twentieth-century criticism

Joyce's grand operoar : opera in Finnegans wake by Matthew John Caldwell Hodgart( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A passionate musician as well as a writer, James Joyce grew up hearing his father sing opera arias and for a time aspired to become a singer himself. The abundant allusions to opera throughout Joyce's work reflect his immersion in this world. In Joyce's Grand Operoar, two internationally respected Joyce scholars join forces to present over 3,000 of Joyce's opera allusions as they appear in Finnegans Wake. Ruth Bauerle's long, richly detailed, and often amusing introduction critically interprets Joyce's life and work in terms of its operatic and literary interconnections. The resulting volume will delight both opera lovers and Joyceans. The allusions are organized first by the page and line of their appearance in Finnegans Wake and then cross-referenced by opera composers and their works, librettists, designers, critics, and conductors, as well as by arias, characters, and singers. The rich musical subtext of Finnegans Wake incorporates Joyce's earlier opera allusions in a grand opera finale of his own
