C.G. Jung and the humanities : toward a hermeneutics of culture by Karin Barnaby( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.G. Jung has been and continues to be a pervasive yet often unacknowledged presence in twentieth-century art and intellectual life. This timely volume is the first comprehensive attempt to assess this presence and to demonstrate Jung's far-reaching cultural impact. The distinguished contributors represent a number of views, from traditional Jungian to the most contemporary post-Jungian stances, including feminist, non-Jungian, and anti-Jungian positions. Jung, as seen in this volume, addresses a wide range of contemporary issues related to creativity, gender, religion, popular culture, and hermeneutics. The essays reveal dimensions of his work that extend far beyond psychoanalytical theory and that show his hermeneutics to be a much more subtle and sophisticated methodology than previously allowed by his critics. This methodology appears, in fact, to have anticipated significant aspects of contemporary critical principles and practice. The contributors to the volume were among the participants in a major international conference sponsored by Hofstra University and the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York, held in 1986 at Hofstra University. They include Thomas Belmonte, Robert Bly, Joseph Campbell, Edward S. Casey, Stanley Diamond, Jean Erdman, Leslie Fiedler, James Hillman, Paul Kugler, Ibram Lassaw, Neil Levine, David L. Miller, Lucio Pozzi, Gilles Quispel, Robert Richenburg, Carol Schreier Rupprecht, Andrew Samuels, Harold Schechter, and June Singer

Theory and practice of classic detective fiction( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining theoretical and practical approaches, this collection of essays explores classic detective fiction from a variety of contemporary viewpoints. Among the diverse perspectives are those which interrogate the way the genre reflects important social and cultural attitudes, contributes to a reader's ability to adapt to the challenges of daily life, and provides alternate takes on the role of the detective as an investigator and arbiter of truth.''Part I looks at the nature of and the audience for detective fiction, as well as at the genre as a literary form. This section includes an inquiry into the role of the detective; an application of object-relations psychology to the genre; and analyses of recent literary criticism positing that traditional detective fiction contained the seeds of its own subversion. Part II applies a variety of theoretical positions to Agatha Christie and her heirs in the British ratiocinative tradition. A concluding essay positions the genre within the middle-class traditions of the novel since its inception in the eighteenth century. Of interest to all scholars and students of detective fiction and British popular culture

Art, glitter, and glitz : mainstream playwrights and popular theatre in 1920s America( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theatre and drama of the 1920s reflects a great synergy of art, glitter, and glitz--a decade of experimentation and incubation for mainstream American playwrights coexisting with important revivals of European playwrights and Shakespeare, a flourishing commercial theatre, and the vibrant worlds of burlesque, musical comedy, Revues and Follies.''The 22 essays gathered by Gewitz and Kolb reflect recent scholarship and research, including several provocative, new readings of the plays of Eugene O'Neill, contrasting essays for and against the significance of Philip Barry, and considerations of less well-known plays by Elmer Rice and Sidney Howard. Essays also address the continuing relevance of Anderson and Stallings' What Price Glory?, the impact of George Pierce Baker on the playwrights of the 1920s, an analysis of the commercial success, Broadway, and a thoroughly detailed account of the Dramatists Guild and its negotiation of a minimum basic agreement. Essays on the popular theatre cover an extraordinary gamut from the popularization of Shakespeare in the hands of John Barrymore to the contrasting acting styles of Jeanne Eagels and Pauline Lord, the one-night Revue presented by members of the Algonquin Circle, grand-guignol, Ring Lardner on Broadway, the Ziegfeld Follies, downtown burlesque, the travesty act of Barbette, the production history of A.H. Woods, and the early musical comedy of Rodgers and Hart. An important resource for scholars, students, and other researchers involved with 20th-century American theatre and drama

The 1930s : the reality and the promise( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2010, Hofstra University celebrated its 75th anniversary, inviting scholars to the campus to discuss the world as it was in the year Hofstra was founded. The conference 1935: The Reality and the Promise provided a wide-ranging exploration of the 1930s with presentations, discussions, and events highlighting the arts, entertainment, society, politics, literature, and science in that momentous decade. This volume encompasses a selection of the most interesting and enlightening papers from this conference, providing both depth and breadth of coverage. By any measure, the 1930s was a pivotal decade in modern history--a time when the reality of current events and the foreshadowing of events to come tempered all promise. The tension between reality and promise is a recurrent theme in the chapters brought together here, as well as in the personalities and faces that came to define this decade.--
