Imagining the Holocaust by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is a particular feature of Holocaust fictions that we remember them differently than other fictions, and as the historical period recedes, literature helps keep those events alive. In Imagining the Holocaust, Daniel R. Schwarz examines widely read Holocaust narratives that have shaped the way we understand and respond to the events of that time. Schwarz argues that as we move further away from the original events, the narratives authors use to render the Holocaust horror evolve to include fantasy and parable, and he shows how diverse audiences respond differently to these highly charged and emotional texts."--Jacket
Narrative and representation in the poetry of Wallace Stevens : a tune beyond us, yet ourselves by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this important study, the distinguished critic Daniel R. Schwarz argues that the narrative and representational aspects of Stevens's poetry have been neglected in favour of readings that stress Stevens's wordplay and rhetoricity. Stressing Stevens's familiarity with modern painting, Schwarz shows how Stevens's concept of representation is deeply influenced by such figures as Picasso and Duchamp. Schwarz shows that Stevens's poetry needs to be understood in terms of a number of major contexts: the American tradition of Emerson and Whitman, the Romantic movement and, most importantly, the modernist tradition." "Through careful analyses of selected poems from every stage of Stevens's career, Schwarz shows how Stevens's aesthetics and themes evolve. He sees 'The Man with the Blue Guitar' and 'Notes towards a Supreme Fiction' as central poems in the Stevens canon."--Jacket

The transformation of the English novel, 1890-1930 by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an exciting and important book ... The theoretical chapters are a model of elegantly styled accommodation; yet they brook no fudging of the issues, no comfortable ambiguities - Modern Fiction Studies The Transformation of the English Novel, 1890-1930: Studies in Hardy, Conrad, Joyce, Lawrence, Forster and Woolf is a provocative exploration of a crucial period in the development of the English novel, integrating critical theory, historical background and sophisticated close reading. Divided into two major sections, the first shows how historical and contextual material is essential for developing powerful readings. The second section is theoretical and speaks of the transformation in the way that we read and think about authors, readers, characters and form in the light of recent theory, offering an alternative to the deconstructive and Marxist trends in literary studies

14 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He focuses on the high Modernist period from 1890 to 1940 and examines the way in which we "read" paintings as narrative.

Reading the modern British and Irish novel, 1890-1930 by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After an introduction outlining his method and a substantial first chapter establishing the intellectual, cultural, and literary contexts in which the modern British and Irish novel was produced, Schwarz turns to close reading of modernist masterworks. He shows how Hardy's Jude the Obscure, Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Lord Jim, Lawrence's Sons and Lovers and The Rainbow, Joyce's Dubliners and Ulysses, Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, and Forster's A Passage to India form essential components in a modernist cultural tradition which includes the visual arts." "Schwarz's work takes account of recent developments in theory and cultural studies. His study will not only be invaluable to students and teachers, but will also be of interest to the general reader."--Jacket

Rereading Conrad by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rereading Conrad sheds new light on an author who has spoken to readers for over a century. Schwarz's essays take account of recent developments in theory and cultural studies, including postcolonial, feminist, gay, and ecological perspectives, and show how reading Conrad has changed in the face of the theoretical explosion that has occurred over the past two decades. Because for over three decades Schwarz has been an important figure in defining how we read Conrad and in studying modernism, including how we respond to the relationship between modern literature and modern art, scholars, teachers, and students will take great pleasure in this new collection of his work."--Jacket
Endtimes? : crises and turmoil at the New York times, 1999-2009 by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From false stories about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to growing competition from online and twenty-four-hour cable news, the first decade of the twenty-first century was not particularly kind to the New York Times. In this groundbreaking study of the recent life and times of America's most important newspaper, Daniel R. Schwarz describes the transformation of the Times as it has confronted not only its various scandals and embarrassments but also the rapid rise of the internet and blogosphere, the ensuing decline in circulation and print advertising, and the change in what contemporary readers want and how they want to get it. Drawing on more than forty one-on-one interviews with past and present editors (including every living executive editor), senior figures on the business and financial side, and publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Schwarz discusses virtually every aspect of the contemporary Times, from columnists to cultural coverage. He explains how, in response to continuous online updating and twenty-four-hour all-news radio and television, the Times has become much more like a daily magazine than a traditional newspaper, with increased analysis (as opposed to reporting) of the news as well as value-added features on health, travel, investing, and food. After carefully tracing the rise of the Times's website, Schwarz asks whether the Times can survive as a print newspaper, whether it can find a business model to support its vast print and online newsgathering operation, and whether the Sulzberger family can survive as controlling owners. He also asks whether the Times, in its desperate effort to survive, has abandoned its quality standards by publishing what he calls "Timeslite" and "Timestrash." Writing as a skeptical outsider and devoted lifelong reader, Schwarz concludes that the Times is the worst newspaper in the world--except for all the others. Endtimes? is a must-read for Times readers as well as anyone interested in the radical change in print and broadcast media in the rapidly evolving Internet Age
