Nobody's home : speech, self, and place in American fiction from Hawthorne to DeLillo by Arnold L Weinstein( )

16 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on some of the deepest instincts of American life and culture--individual liberty, freedom of speech, constructing a life--Arnold Weinstein brilliantly sketches the remarkable career of the American self over the past one hundered fifty years in major works by such authors as Herman Melville and Mark Twain to contemporary authors such as Toni Morrison and Robert Coover. He contends that American writers are haunted by the twin specters of the self as a mirage, as Nobody, and by the brutal forces of culture and ideology that deny selfhood to people on the basis of money, sex, and color of skin. Revealing American fiction as a fascinating record of the human flight against coercion, this study fashions a rich and supple view of the American novel as a writerly form of freedom, in sharp contrast to today's critical emphasis on blindness and co-option
Fictions of the self, 1550-1800 by Arnold L Weinstein( )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and held by 1,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author charts the interaction between self and world through four major phases whereby the self initially has marginal status (the picaresque), begins to flourish and court recognition (Defoe, Marivaux, and Fielding), glows defiant and tries to impose its will on society and the other (Prevost, Richardson, Goethe, and Laclos), and finally makes a prophetic inward turn (Diderot, Sterne, and Rousseau). He shows how these phases also reflect the development of literature as it moves from mimetic to generative fiction, from the power of gesture to that of word.Originally published in 1981.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

A scream goes through the house : what literature teaches us about life by Arnold L Weinstein( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Scream Goes Through the House traces the human cry that echoes in literature through the ages, demonstrating how intense feelings are heard and shared. With intellectual insight and emotional acumen, Weinstein reveals how the scream that resounds through the house of literature, history, the body, and the family shows us who we really are and joins us together in a vast and timeless community."--Jacket
Recovering your story : Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, Morrison by Arnold L Weinstein( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Great art discovers for us who we are," writes literature professor and critic Weinstein in this book about how we can better uncover and understand our own stories by reading five major modern writers who "reinvent the novel by exploding our sense of what we are." He invites us to discover our perceptions, our dreams, our own elusive, deepest stories in these masterpieces of modernist fiction. As he argues with wit and passion, these works are in fact shimmering mirrors of our own inner world and most intimate thoughts. He decodes great novels, illuminates the complex pleasures woven into these peerless narratives, and shows how to read them to understand human beings-the way our minds and hearts actually work. This is what Weinstein means by "recovering your story." He makes these powerful works understandable, accessible, indeed imperative for all adventurous readers.--From publisher description

What if you could travel in time as well? Imagine yourself transported to the sparkling court society of 18th-century France, or sailing aboard a 19th-century whaling ship. What secrets would you learn about the human condition and the lives lived in distant lands and eras? And what about the most remarkable journey of all: the voyage inside the mind of another human being, in which you plumb the thoughts and emotions that usually remain hidden deep within? What does this journey tell us about the puzzling, sometimes shocking thing we call human nature? More importantly, what does it tell us about ourselves? These adventures await you in Classic Novels: Meeting the Challenge of Great Literature, taught by veteran Teaching Company Professor Arnold Weinstein
