Rereading Conrad by Daniel R Schwarz( )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,945 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( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,239 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
Reading Joyce's Ulysses by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

40 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reissued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday, this now classic text includes a new preface by author Daniel Schwarz taking account of scholarly and critical developments since its original publication. It shows how the now-important issues of postcolonialism, feminism, Irish Studies and urban culture are addressed within the text, as well as a discussion of how the book can be approached by both beginners and seasoned readers. Schwarz not only presents a powerful and original reading of Joyce's great epic novel, but discusses it in terms of a dialogue between recent and more traditional theory. Focusing on what he calls the odyssean reader, Schwarz demonstrates how the experience of reading Ulysses involves responding both to traditional plot and character, and to the novel's stylistic experiments

Imagining the Holocaust by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 731 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 )

18 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 690 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

This work explores this crucial period in the development of the English novel, integrating critical theory, historical background and close reading.

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

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 535 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."
Reading texts, reading lives : essays in the tradition of humanistic cultural criticism in honor of Daniel R. Schwarz( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our culture attempts to separate competing ideological factions by denying relationships between multiple perspectives and influences outside of one's own narrow interpretive community. The distinguished essayists in this volume find Daniel R. Schwarz's pluralistic, self-questioning approach to what he calls "reading texts and reading lives" quite relevant to the current historical moment and political situation. A legendary scholar of modernist literature, Schwarz's critical principles are a healthy corrective to cultural hubris. The essayists treat works ranging from fictions by Joyce, Conrad, Morrison, and Woolf to the poetry to Yeats, to Holocaust literature, to the environmental writings of Wendell Berry, to the photographs of Lee Friedlander. The authors focus on different works, but they follow Schwarz in stressing formal elements most often associated with traditional realism while keeping an eye on historical and author-centered approaches. The essayists also follow Schwarz in their emphasis on narrative cohesion and in how they look for signs of agency among characters who possess the will to alter their fate, even in a seemingly random universe such as the one depicted by Conrad. Readers with eyes to ethics and aesthetics, they follow Schwarz in encouraging a values-centered approach that leaves room for the reader to address the ways in which reading a text correlates to the reader's ability to find meaning and value in experience outside the text. Like Schwarz, the essays look for intentionality of authorial meaning (rather than something called an "author function") as well as for the relationship between lived experience and the imagined world of the literary work (rather than the endless semiotic play of an ultimately indecipherable text)."--Publisher's website
Broadway boogie woogie : Damon Runyon and the making of New York city culture by Daniel R Schwarz( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While analyzing Damon Runyon's work in terms of historical contexts, popular culture, and of the changing function of the media, Schwarz argues that Runyon was an indispensible figure in creating enduring images of New York City culture, which spurred an interest in the demi-monde and underworld exposed in The Godfather films and The Sopranos. In lively and exuberant chapters that include a panoramic view of New York City between the World Wars--and its colorful nightlife--Schwarz examines virtually every facet of Runyon's career from sports writer, daily columnist, trial reporter, and Hollywood figure to the author of the still widely read short stories that were the source of the Broadway hit Guys and Dolls. As part of his discussion of Runyon's art and artistry of Runyon's fiction, he skillfully examines the special language of the Broadway stories known as "Runyonese" and explains how "Runyonese" has become an adjective describing flamboyant behavior

14 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 472 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.

"What happens when we read imaginative literature? What do we learn from reading such texts?
