Combined and uneven development : towards a new theory of world-literature by Warwick Research Collective( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ambition of this book is to resituate the problem of 'world literature', considered as a revived category of theoretical enquiry, by pursuing the literary-cultural implications of the theory of combined and uneven development. This theory has a long pedigree in the social sciences, where it continues to stimulate debate. But its implications for cultural analysis have received less attention, even though the theory might be said to draw attention to a central - perhaps the central - arc or trajectory of modern(ist) production in literature and the other arts worldwide. It is in the conjuncture of combined and uneven development, on the one hand, and the recently interrogated and expanded categories of 'world literature' and 'modernism', on the other, that this book looks for its specific contours. In the two theoretical chapters that frame the book, the authors argue for a single, but radically uneven world-system; a singular modernity, combined and uneven; and a literature that variously registers this combined unevenness in both its form and content to reveal itself as, properly speaking, world-literature. In the four substantive chapters that then follow, the authors explore a selection of modern-era fictions in which the potential of their method of comparativism seems to be most dramatically highlighted. They treat the novel paradigmatically, not exemplarily, as a literary form in which combined and uneven development is manifested with particular salience, due in no small part to its fundamental association with the rise of capitalism and its status in peripheral and semi-peripheral societies as a 'modernising' import. The peculiar plasticity and hybridity of the novel form enables it to incorporate not only multiple literary levels, genres and modes, but also other non-literary and archaic cultural forms - so that, for example, realist elements might be mixed with more experimental modes of narration, or older literary devices might be reactivated in juxtaposition with more contemporary frames

Plotless history : historical representation in Frondeur memoirs by Stephen A Shapiro( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the memoirs of Madame de Motteville, La Rochefoucauld, Mademoiselle de Montpensier, and the Cardinal de Retz who wrote accounts of what they saw and did during the four-year rebellion known as the Fronde (1648--1652). These Frondeur memoirs would appear to exemplify particular as opposed to general history writing because they shy away from overarching arguments and seem to accumulate anecdotes rather than trace a chain of reasoning. Motteville insists that she merely compiles her recollections. La Rochefoucauld asserts that he seeks only to reveal little-known facts about his Frondeur exploits. Mademoiselle de Montpensier reminisces to alleviate the boredom of exile. Finally, the Cardinal de Retz adopts a conversational form that seeks only to delight his interlocutor. This study, however, reads these four authors' metadiscourse critically and asks whether their texts are truly the descriptive chronicles they purport to be

Barnardand Shapiro explore the relevant historical, cultural, and literary backgrounds in their illuminating Introduction; they skillfully annotate the text; they provide useful and up-to-date bibliographies; and they append a number of revealing primary texts for further cultural contextualization.
