Conrad's politics; community and anarchy in the fiction of Joseph Conrad by Avrom Fleishman( Book )

14 editions published between 1963 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A full accounting of Conrad's political views makes it difficult to categorize him in any of the readily available rubrics, and the political implications of his faction are sufficiently subtle to leave any interpretation of them as doctrinal statements adrift in the wake of his art. The present study maintains that the novels must be read as dramatic expressions of a complex political imagination, and are therefore not reducible to political ideology. It attempts to show, moreover, that Conrad was open to the prevailing political ideas of his time, whose which it inherited from a century-old debate on the bases of social philosophy, and that the fiction which derived from his speculations was more complicated than received opinion would have it--indeed, was much the better art because of its rich intellectual tradition
A reading of Mansfield Park : an essay in critical synthesis by Avrom Fleishman( Book )

24 editions published between 1955 and 1970 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As its title suggests, this study proposes to be experimental in method as well as exhaustive of its subject. It aims at a unified and full reading of a novel, and proposes Jane Austen's Mansfield Park as example. The method, having nothing new in its elements, is to apply a variety of critical approaches instead of choosing one or another of them, for applied in isolation they have led to misunderstandings of the novel. By widening the range of points of view, one makes it possible to see the novel as a subtle response to its own age and to certain eternal human concerns, rather than as the narrow defense of outworn values it has been taken to be. - Preface

New class culture : how an emergent class is transforming America's culture by Avrom Fleishman( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new class is emerging in the wake of the information economy and is altering American culture. Instead of arguing about values in aesthetic taste or morality, this book sheds new light on the culture wars by examining the social sources of recent cultural developments. Both opponents and defenders of the current cultural scene have neglected the class factors in culture generally and in present society. If the new class is added to our picture of American society, its input into the cultural marketplace helps to explain present trends in postmodernism, mixtures of high and low culture, and other recent developments
