Metamorphoses of science fiction : on the poetics and history of a literary genre by Darko Suvin( Book )

27 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Returning to print for the first time since the 1980s, Metamorphoses of Science Fiction is the origin point for decades of literary and theoretical criticism of science fiction and related genres. Darko Suvin's paradigm-setting definition of SF as ±the literature of cognitive estrangement? established a robust theory of the genre that continues to spark fierce debate, as well as inspiring myriad intellectual descendants and disciples. Suvin's centuries-spanning history of the genre links SF to a long tradition of utopian and satirical literatures crying out for a better world than this one, showing how SF and the imagination of utopia are now forever intertwined. In addition to the 1979 text of the book, this edition contains three additional essays from Suvin that update, expand and reconsider the terms of his original intervention, as well as a new introduction and preface that situate the book in the context of the decades of SF studies that have followed in its wake

In Leviathan's belly : essays for a counter-revolutionary time by Darko Suvin( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In eleven incisive, biting essays, Marxist philosopher Darko Suvin suggests that ""capitalism (and all of us in Leviathan's belly) stands today in the presence of Yeats's rough beast advancing toward Bethlehem, that finance capitalism is not simply a stage but a recurrent 'Autumn' signal of transition from one world regime of accumulation and domination to another; it signals the destruction of the old regime and creation of a 'new' one."" And to bolster his argument, Suvin points to the economic and social chaos creeping and growing through western society, bank failures, riots, unrest, loss
