Edgar Huntly is the story of a young man who sleepwalks each night, a threat to himself and others, unable to control his baser passions. Set outside Philadelphia in 1787, the book becomes a metaphor for the founding of a new nation. Its characters face the problems confronted by the framers of the Constitution: how to harness the irrational, passionate aspects of man's nature without sacrificing individual liberty

Incest in Faulkner : a metaphor for the fall by Constance Hill Hall( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of incest pervades much of the work of William Faulkner. It appears in the early writing and the late, in the Yoknapatawpha books and those outside the cycle; it is found in a variety of different relationships and in all classes of people. The theme of incest in Faulkner, however, is developed primarily in the sibling relationship and occurs principally in the first families of Yoknapatawpha County. It receives most emphasis in three major novels: Flags in the Dust, The Sound and the Fury, and Absalom, Absalom! Faulkner's use of incest in essentially Miltonic in concept; it is particularly indebted, I believe, to Paradise Lost. Like Milton, Faulkner conceives of incest as a metaphor for original sin, as the sign or the seal of a Fall. It denotes an arrogance and pride that leads inevitably to a denial of brotherly love; and it signifies a lapse from wholeness, pointing to a disintegration in the individual, the family, and in society. The symbolic implications of incest are strengthened and clarified, moreover, by Faulkner's realistic depiction of the incestuous relationship. In a description of incest which conforms closely to the findings of anthropologists, psychologists, and historians, Faulkner defines the incestuous relationship by the host of related ills that surround it: isolation and alienation, exploitation, narcissism, role violation, the repression of the emotions and their consequent revenge, identity-crisis, a wish to halt time, the thirst for revenge, and a desire for self-sufficiency. It is a depiction of incest that confirms, unquestionably, the dangers and the evils inherent in such a relationship. In the course of the Yoknapatawpha saga, moreover, incest is presented increasingly as a real element in the story, emerging finally in Absalom, Absalom! and Go Down, Moses with its unsavory nature fully revealed. A theme that appears insistently throughout the canon, incest holds great significance for an understanding of Faulkner's works. As a metaphor of the original sin, it serves both as the sign of a Fall and as a portent or warning of further ruin

The documentary experience : Hawthorne, Melville and the aesthetics of fancy by Alden Rolfe Turner( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literary aesthetic conventions and innovations practiced in American fiction writers' recourse to historical documentary materials falls within a documentary tradition associated with the generic development of the novel as well as with American religious typology as an interpretive mode which survived a shift from sacred to secular texts. The popularity of early American novels "founded on fact" attests to this transition but also to a crisis of values which forced some writers to question the demands of a culture where promises of liberation were tied to the fulfillment of its historical texts of truth. Charles Brockden Brown and William Dunlap enlisted the aesthetic power of human fancy into the service of fact for fictions that ironically belie their own premises of substantive truth. Hawthorne supposed that his fiction, if not truth, might penetrate to a native American mythology in his fictional responses to the historical records of the Puritans' "persecuting spirit." In his "Prefaces," Puritan tales, and The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne's fear that his art is the product of his own inadequate imagination constrains him to attribute order and meaning to documentary sources while he transforms these same materials into fictions whose authenticity is actually dependent upon the free play of his own powers of fancy. In Melville's Benito Cereno, Israel Potter, and Billy Budd, the notion of documents as an historical ground for fiction as truth, or even as mythology, gives way to their treatment as unreliable yet powerful determinants of value and meaning--deceptive artifacts whose integrity is undercut by varying perspectives which exhaust historical forms of their truth as other than or different from his own documentary fiction. In their contemporary "metafiction," writers like John Barth and Robert Coover return to the literary sensibility of Hawthorne and Melville as a means for assaulting the thresholds and borders of their own inherited modes of expression; they return to a distinctively American literary aesthetics where notions of continuity, veracity, coherence, and form continue to be a patchwork fabric "made up" by the self-conscious play of human fancy
