Orientalism by Edward W Said( Book )

353 editions published between 1978 and 2019 in 19 languages and held by 5,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme is the way in which intellectual traditions are created and transmitted ... Orientalism is the example Mr. Said uses, and by it he means something precise. The scholar who studies the Orient (and specifically the Muslim Orient), the imaginitive writer who takes it as his subject, and the institutions which have been concerned with teaching it, settling it, ruling it, all have a certain representation or idea of the Orient defined as being other than the Occident, mysterious, unchanging and ultimately inferior."--Albert Houran -- from (Jan. 28, 2014)
Culture and imperialism by Edward W Said( Book )

140 editions published between 1993 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 3,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark work from the intellectually auspicious author of Orientalism that explores the long-overlooked connections between the Western imperial endeavor and the culture that both reflected and reinforced it
Joseph Conrad and the fiction of autobiography by Edward W Said( Book )

43 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in English and Turkish and held by 2,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward W. Said locates Joseph Conrad's fear of personal disintegration in his constant re-narration of the past. Using the author's personal letters as a guide to understanding his fiction, Said draws an important parallel between Conrad's view of his own life and the manner and form of his stories. The critic also argues that the author, who set his fiction in exotic locations like East Asia and Africa, projects political dimensions in his work that mirror a colonialist preoccupation with ""civilizing"" native peoples. Said then suggests that this dimension should be considered when read

73 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nationalism, colonialism, and literature by Terry Eagleton( )

36 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 1,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three essays in this volume were originally published as individual pamphlets by the Field Day Theatre Company in Derry, Nothern Ireland. Founded in 1980 as a theatre cmpany, Field Day has eveolved as a publisher concerned with the typically Irish blend of political and cultural (mainly literary) forces which requires fresh analysis in view of the existing Irish political crisis. As a result, Field Day has published a series of pamphlets, in groups of three, to which the three essays printed here are the most recent contribution. Each of the essays deals with a different aspect of nationalism and the role of cultural production as a force in understanding the aftermath of colonization. In his essay, Terry Eagleton identifies two decolonizing stages: the achievement of national autonomy and personal autonomy. Frederic Jameson discusses the problematic relationship between the Third World and the "first world". Edward Said focuses on the poetry of Yeats and the role it played in the "liberationist" movement of decolonization
Music at the limits by Edward W Said( )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Hebrew and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music at the Limits is the first book to bring together three decades of Edward W. Said's essays and articles on music. Addressing the work of a variety of composers, musicians, and performers, Said carefully draws out music's social, political, and cultural contexts and, as a classically trained pianist, provides rich and often surprising assessments of classical music and opera."--Jacket
The world, the text, and the critic by Edward W Said( Book )

41 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these essays, Edward Said challenges contemporary literary criticism. He examines, among other things, narrative, focusing on Joseph Conrad and the curious dearth of literature on Jonathan Swift
Reflections on exile and other essays by Edward W Said( Book )

52 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This long-awaited collection of literary and cultural essays by Edward W. Said, the first since Harvard University Press published The World, the Text, and the Critic in 1983, reconfirms what no one can doubt -- that Said is the most impressive, consequential, and elegant critic of our time -- and offers further evidence of how much the fully engaged critical mind can contribute to the reservoir of value, thought, and action essential to our lives. As in the title essay, the widely admired "Reflections on Exile," the fact of his own exile and the fate of the Palestinians have given both form and the force of intimacy to the questions Said has pursued. Taken together, these essays -- from the famous to those that will surprise even Said's most assiduous followers -- afford rare insight into the formation of a critic and the development of an intellectual vocation. Said's topics are many and diverse, from the movie heroics of Tarzan to the machismo of Ernest Hemingway to the shades of difference that divide Alexandria and Cairo. He offers major reconsiderations of writers and artists such as George Orwell, Giambattista Vico, Georg Lukacs, R.P. Blackmur, E.M. Cioran, Naguib Mahfouz, Herman Melville, Joseph Conrad, Walter Lippmann, Samuel Huntington, Antonio Gramsci, and Raymond Williams. Said makes a strong and eloquent attack on what he calls "aestheticized powerlessness," a habitual stance of many in the academy. Most of the key debates in the humanities over the last thirty years are taken up in this book, and a number of them are given definitive treatment here."--Publisher's description

40 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Hughes has written that Edward Said has always spoken for the "secular, liberal, and human strand in Arab culture whose voices are silenced by Middle Eastern regimes and ignored in America." This is a major collection of writingtimely, impassioned, and controversial - from our most important Arab scholar."--Jacket

60 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complete stories, 1884-1891 by Henry James( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complete Stories 1884-1891 features among its seventeen stories some of James' greatest masterpieces, among them "The Aspern Papers", a stunning novella about emotional ruthlessness in the service of literary scholarship, "The Lesson of the Master", an intricate study of ambition, disappointment, and the demands of a life devoted to art; "Brooksmith", a moving portrait of a house servant; and the enthralling ghost story "Sir Edmund Orme."
Literature and society by English Institute( Book )

29 editions published between 1978 and 1986 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its emphasis on the text as a complex abstraction, much of the most influential recent work in criticism and theory has distanced itself from the traditional social and cultural questions of literary scholarship. In "Literature and Society", seven critics consider anew the situation of writing in history and human society. Their contributions deal with the subject from many viewpoints, all of which are informed but not overwhelmed by current trends in modern critical theory. -- From publisher's description

Uses a comic book format to shed light on the complex and emotionally-charged situation of Palestinian Arabs, exploring the lives of Israeli soldiers, Palestinian refugees, and children in the Occupied Territories
Blaming the victims : spurious scholarship and the Palestinian question by Edward W Said( Book )

34 editions published between 1987 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1948 war which drove them from their homeland, the Palestinian people have consistently been denied the most basic democratic rights. [This book] shows how the historical fate of the Palestinians has been justified by spurious academic attempts to dismiss their claim to a home within the boundaries of historical Palestine and even to deny their very existence. Beginning with a thorough expose of the fraudulent assertions of Joan Peters concerning the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine prior to 1948, the book then turns to similar instances in Middle East research where the truth about the Palestinians has been systematically suppressed: from the bogus - though still widely believed - explanations of why so many Palestinians fled their homes in 1948, to today's distorted propaganda about PLO terrorism. The volume also includes sharp critiques of the wide consensus in the USA which supports Israel and its territorial ambitions while maintaining total silence about the competing reality of the Palestinians."--Publisher's description
The end of the peace process : Oslo and after by Edward W Said( Book )

58 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this important collection of fifty pieces, Edward Said questions the very foundations of the Oslo accords. Signed in September 1993 on the White House lawn by Israel and the PLO, the accords were immediately hailed as a success and a breakthrough for peace in the Middle East, but Said realized that the imbalance of power between the signees would set up a problematic dynamic, bringing only an illusionary stability. The later interim agreements of Taba, Hebron, and the Wye Plantation would already limit the next phase -- the final-status negotiations set to conclude this year, when the future condition of refugees, Jerusalem, borders, water and compensations must be decided. Incisively cutting through the hyperbole in the press surrounding the accords, these pieces document the historic content but also give otherwise unreported accounts of what has really gone on in the occupied territory since the signing. The continuing expansion of Israeli settlements, the repressive leadership and inflated bureaucracy of Yasir Arafat, Said's own return to Jerusalem after forty-five years, the subsequent banning of his books by the Palestinian Authority, and Oslo's inability to recognize Palestine's self-determination are among the issues of peace and justice he discusses. Together these essays are an eloquent and courageous statement for peaceful coexistence and equality between two peoples, and for an end to the separation of Jews and non-Jews -- the only hope for a lasting solution in the Middle East
Parallels and paradoxes : explorations in music and society by Daniel Barenboim( Book )

65 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating exchange between Daniel Barenboim, Music Director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, and Edward W. Said, the leading expert on the Middle East, grew out of the acclaimed Carnegie Hall Talks. A unique and impassioned discussion about politics and culture, it touches on many diverse subjects: the importance of a sense of place; the differences between writing prose and music; the conductors Wilhelm Furtwangler and Arturo Toscanini; Beethoven as the greatest sonata composer; the difficulty of playing Wagner; the sound at Bayreuth; the writers Balzac, Dickens, and Adorno; the importance of great teachers; and the power of culture to transcend all national and political differences--something they both witnessed when they brought together young Arab and Israeli musicians to play at Weimar in 1999. Although Barenboim and Said have very different points of view, they act as catalysts for each other. The originality of their ideas makes this a book that is both accessible and compelling for anyone who is interested in the culture of the twenty-first century
After the last sky : Palestinian lives by Edward W Said( Book )

52 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A searing portrait in words and photographs of Palestinian life and identity that is at once an exploration of Edward Said's own dislocated past and a testimony to the lives of those living in exile."--Jacket
On late style : music and literature against the grain by Edward W Said( Book )

55 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his last book, Edward Said looks at a selection of essays, poems, novels, films, and operas to determine what late style may explain about the evolution of the creative life. He discusses how the approaching death of an artist can make its way "with anachronism and anomaly" into his work, as was the case in the late work of Thomas Mann, Richard Strauss, Jean Genet, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, and C.P. Cavafy. Said examinees Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Genet's Le captif amoureux and Les paravents, Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, Visconti's film of Lampedusa's The Leopard, Euripides' The Bacchae and Iphigenia at Aulis, and Thomas Mann's Death in Venice, among other works."--Jacket
Representations of the intellectual : the 1993 Reith lectures by Edward W Said( Book )

49 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrated humanist, teacher, and scholar, Edward W. Said here examines the ever-changing role of the intellectual today. In these six stunning essays - delivered on the BBC as the prestigious Reith Lectures - Said addresses the ways in which the intellectual can best serve society in the light of a heavily compromised media and of special interest groups who are protected at the cost of larger community concerns. Said suggests a recasting of the intellectual's vision to resist the lures of power, money, and specialization. in these powerful pieces, Said eloquently illustrates his arguments by drawing on such writers as Antonio Gramsci, Jean-Paul Sartre, Regis Debray, Julien Benda, and Adorno, and by discussing current events and celebrated figures in the world of science and politics: Robert Oppenheimer, Henry Kissinger, Dan Quayle, Vietnam, and the Gulf War." "Said sees the modern intellectual as an editor, journalist, academic, or political adviser - in other words, a highly specialized professional - who has moved from a position of independence to an alliance with powerful institutional organizations. He concludes that it is the exile-immigrant, the expatriate, and the amateur who must uphold the traditional role of the intellectual as the voice of integrity and courage, able to speak out against those in power."--BOOK JACKET
