In partition's shadow: Fictions of violence and sovereignty in India by K. Anis Ahmed( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the trauma of the partition in Indian fictions, mainly of the last two decades. Until recently this trauma was thought to derive almost exclusively from the enormous violence provoked by the partition of 1947. This study argues that the political division is an equally significant source of trauma. Chapter One proposes that to understand this division it is necessary to employ the notion of sovereignty, and that partition fictions comprise an exemplary site for observing the corruscations of the sovereign subject. Chapter Two reads novels by Salman Rushdie and Mukul Kesavan to reveal the abiding importance of nationalist territoriality and temporality in their works. The preoccupation with violations of nationalist space and telos marks the trauma of division, and suggests the utility of literature as a prosthetic for historical loss. Chapter Three analyzes attempts by Amitav Ghosh and Shashi Tharoor to position the 'communalist' as the source of civil violence, and thus as the 'other' of the liberal, nationalist self. Yet, by treating the targets of its violence, in the terms of Giorgio Agamben, as homo sacers, the communalist throws a disturbing challenge to the nationalist's exclusivist claim to sovereign potency. In this respect, the sovereign's other is also its kin. Chapter Four explores another kind of kinship to sovereignty in Sunil Gangopadhyay's Bengali epic Purbo-Pashchim . Here the rebellion of the subalterns reveals sparks of sovereign dignity and aspirations, thus once again marking the sovereign as multiple and contingent. The literature of partition marks a deep perplexity with the restlessness--and violence--of the sovereign subject. By theorizing partition as a problem of sovereignty, this study hopes to identify both the Indian partition and the resulting literature as topics that belong not only to the specialized enclave of area studies, but also as an universal problematic in the mainstream of modernism

"Six Nights on the Acropolis" ("' ExiNu & d12; ct3vst hnAkro & d12; polh "), a novel by George Seferis: An English translation from the Greek, with introduction and notes by Susan Matthias( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a contemplative start, in which the intellectual and emotional premises of the novel are set up, Six Nights gains momentum as the full force of desire takes over. At once a homage to Gide, Valery and Proust, a diary novel in the "Young Werther" mode, and a definitive Kunstlerroman, Six Nights on the Acropolis is an intriguing read--for what it tells us about Seferis's artistic apprenticeship, about Greece forced into abrupt urbanization, and about young people wandering city streets and experiencing transient loves during the late 1920s
