What's left of theory? new work on the politics of literary theory by Judith Butler ( )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For several years," write the editors ofWhat's Left of Theory, "a debate on the politics of theory has been conducted energetically within literary studies. The terms of the debate, however, are far from clear. What is meant by politics? What is meant by theory?" What's Left of Theoryis a vigorous engagement with that thorniest of critical questions: how today are theory and progressive thought connected? Michael Warner, activist and critic, examines 'zones of privacy and zones of theory' while law professor Janet Halley considers theory and its applicability to sex harassment. Jeff Nunokawa examines Oscar Wilde, Marjorie Levinson reads Elizabeth Bishop alongsideNational Geographic; John Brenkman considers 'extreme criticism', Michael Berube the 'future of contingency'; William Connolly addresses the matter of secularism, Gayatri Spivak explores what she calls 'theory-remains', and Jonathan Culler demonstrates once again his gift for explaining the complex in an essay thatidentifies 'the literary in theory'. Editors Butler, Guillory, and Thomas have brought together not only outstanding questioners, but outstanding questions. As their introduction puts it, "Are there ways of pursuing a politically reflective literary analysis that have definitively left theory behind, and must 'theory' be left behind for left literary analysis to emerge? Has the study of literature passed beyond its encounter with theory? If so, in passing beyond theory, has it remained unchanged? Does the recent cry for a 'return to literature' signal the surpassing of theory, the fact that literature remains after theory? Does literature remain (the same) after theory?" For students of literature and the humanities in general, these questions are not only left: they endure

Annotation Language in America; new world meditations and mediations. Cultural historian Morse (retired Secretary of the Latin American Program at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC) inquires into the ways in which speech and poetry evoke the common historical experience of North and South America, and examines the transatlantic of European languages. He employs political ideology to contrast the traditions of Anglo and Latin America, while surveying contemporary pressures for ideological change. In a highly eclectic way, he considers the problems involved in conveying the Latin American experience to North Americans.
