The beat generation writers( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on some of the most popular writers of the last 40 years, including Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Gregory Corso and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, this new collection also examines the work of John Clellon Holmes and Herbert Huncke as well as offering a first ever consideration of black beat writers like LeRoi Jones (Imamu Amiri Baraka), Ted Joans and Bob Kaufman. The first introduction to Beat writers to explore the role of women and gender, through memoirists such as Carolyn Cassady and Bonnie Bremser, as well as the Beats as political activists, this study examines the key influences on the movement, such as an Indian and Buddhist philosophy, the sixties' counter-culture, the poetry of Emerson and Whitman and European trends and the Modernist tradition

This essay collection offers an overview of Vizenor scholarship through close reading of his texts and exploration of the intellectual contexts in which they are situated. Vizenor's achievements cannot be easily summarized; rather, this book gives due evidence of the complexity of his work and the diverse critical responses to it
Modern American counter writing : Beats, outriders, ethnics by A. Robert Lee( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study that explores those counter-seams of modern American writing that sit outside, or at least awkwardly within, agreed literary canons. It analyses three literary branches in the tradition: a re-envisioning of the whole Beat web or circuit; a consortium of postwar 'outrider' voices; and, a purview of what has been designated 'ethnic' writing
China fictions, English language : literary essays in diaspora, memory, story by A. Robert Lee( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world is anything but unfamiliar with diaspora: Jewish, African, Armenian, Roma-Gipsy, Filipino/a, Tamil, Irish or Italian, even Japanese. But few have carried so global a resonance as that of China. What, then, of literary-cultural expression, the huge body of fiction which has addressed itself to that plurality of lives and geographies and which has come to be known as?After China?? This collection of essays offers bearings on those written in English, and in which both memory and story are central, spanning the USA to Australia, Canada to the UK, Hong Kong to Singapore, with yet others of more transnational nature. This collection open with a reprise of woman-authored Chinese American fiction using Maxine Hong Kingston and Amy Tan as departure points. In turn follow readings of the oeuvres of Tan and Frank Chin. A comparative essay takes up novels by Canadian, American and Australian authors from the perspective of migrancy as fracture. Chinese Canada comes into view in accounts of SKY Lee, Wayson Choy, Evelyn Lau and Larissa Lai. Australia under Chinese literary auspices is given a comparative mapping through the fiction of Brian Castro and Ouyang Yu. The English language?China fiction? of Singapore and Hong Kong is located in essays centred, respectively, on Martin Booth and Po Wah Lam, and Hwee Hwee Tan and Colin Cheong. The collection rounds out with portraits of Timothy Mo as British transnational author, a selection of contextual Chinese British stories and art, and the phenomenon of?Chinese Chick Lit? novels. China Fictions/English Language will be of interest to readers drawn both to?After China? as diasporic literary heritage and comparative literature in general
Gothic to multicultural : idioms of imagining in American literary fiction by A. Robert Lee( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gothic to Multicultural: Idioms of Imagining in American Literary Fiction, twenty-three essays each carefully revised from the past four decades, explores both range and individual register. The collection opens with considerations of gothic as light and dark in Charles Brockden Brown, war and peace in Cooper's The Spy, Antarctica as world-genesis in Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, the link of "The Custom House" and main text in Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, reflexive codings in Melville's Moby-Dick and The Confidence-Man, Henry James' Hawthorne as self-mirroring biography, and Stephen Crane's working of his civil War episode in The Red Badge of Courage. Two composite lineages address apocalypse in African American fiction and landscape in women's authorship from Sarah Orne Jewett to Leslie Marmon Silko. There follow culture and anarchy in Henry James' The Princess Casamassima, text-into-film in Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence, modernist stylings in Fitzgerald, Faulkner and Hemingway, and roman noir in Cornell Woolrich. The collection then turns to the limitations of protest categorization for Richard Wright and Chester Himes, autofiction in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, and the novel of ideas in Robert Penn Warren's late fiction. Three closing essays take up multicultural genealogy, Harlem, then the Black South, in African American fiction, and the reclamation of voice in Native American fiction."--Jacket
