Love, mystery, and misery : feeling in Gothic fiction by Coral Ann Howells( Book )

22 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current Gothic revival in literature and film encourages us to look again to the earliest Gothic novels written beween 1790 and 1820, when Gothic was the most popular kind of fiction in England. Dr. Howells proposes a radical reassessment of these novels to emphasize their importance as experiments in imaginative writing. Her object, the study of feeling, is central to Gothic, for its spell consists in the feelings it arouses and exercises. As pseudo-historical fantasy, Gothic fiction embodies contemporary neuroses, especially sexual fears and repressions, which run right through it and ar
The Cambridge companion to Margaret Atwood by Coral Ann Howells( Book )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a critical account of Atwood's writing across the wide range of genres within which she has worked for the past forty years, while paying attention to her Canadian cultural context and the multiple dimensions of her celebrity. The main concern is with Atwood the writer, but there is also Atwood the media star and public performer, cultural critic, environmentalist and human rights spokeswoman, social and political satirist, and mythmaker. This immensely varied profile is addressed in a series of chapters which cover biographical, textual, and contextual issues. The Introduction contains an analysis of dominant trends in Atwood criticism since the 1970s, while the essays by twelve leading international Atwood critics represent the wide range of different perspectives in current Atwood scholarship

Contemporary Canadian women's fiction : refiguring identities by Coral Ann Howells( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book charts the significant changes in contemporary Canada's literary profile since the mid-1990s, within a context of the new national rhetoric of multiculturalism. By looking closely at a representative range of fictions in English by women from a variety of ethnocultural backgrounds, Coral Ann Howells examines the complexities embedded within Canadian identity. What does "Refiguring Identities" mean for these writers, given their individual agendas and the multiple affiliations of any woman's identity construction? All these writers are engaged in rewriting history across generations, and Howells argues that women's fiction negotiates new possibilities for cultural change, introducing more heterogeneous narratives of identity in multicultural Canada."--Jacket

The handmaid's tale by Margaret Atwood( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This visionary novel. in which God and Government are joined, and America is run as a Puritanical Theoracy, can be read as a companion volume to Orwell's 1984-its verso, in fact. It gives you the same degree of chill, even as it suggests the varieties of tyrannical experience; it evokes the same kind of horror even as its mordant wit makes you smile." E.L. Doctorow
Where are the voices coming from? : Canadian culture and the legacies of history( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays focuses on Canadian history and its legacies as represented in novels and films in English and French, produced in Canada mainly in the 1980s and 1990s. The approach is both cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, aiming at articulating Canadian differences through a comparison of anglophone and francophone cultures, illustrated by works treating some of the different groups which make up Canadian society - English-Canadian, Quebecois, Acadian, Native, and ethnic minorities. The emphasis is on the problematic representation of Canadianness, which is closely bound up with constructions of history and its legacies - dispossession, criminality, nomadism, Gothicism, the Maritime."--Jacket

Private and Fictional Words (Routledge Revivals) Canadian Women Novelists of the 1970s and 1980s by Coral Ann Howells( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1987, this is an introductory study of the most widely read Canadian women novelists of the 1970s and 1980s. At its centre lies the question of how the search for a distinctive cultural identity relates to the need for a national cultural identity in the post-colonial era. Coral Ann Howells argues that Canadian women's fiction throughout the period of study represents how the Canadian cultural identity exceeds its geographical limits, and those traditional structures of patriarchal authority need revision if women's alternative views are to be taken into account.
