Irony's edge : the theory and politics of irony by Linda Hutcheon ( Book )
18 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 600 libraries worldwide
There is the growing sense that irony has emerged as a mode of expression that is strangely out of vogue. The popular press has veritably written it off as a means of critique. Politicians and pundits seldom use it. And when they do, it tends either to miss its intended mark or, for that matter, induce widespread cognitive failure. Yet, irony is a complex rhetorical move. It depends on deep and shared levels of understanding, knowing namely, that one means what one doesn't mean and that that actually means something else completely. It produces a "scene." In Irony's edge, Linda Hutcheon examines the nature of this "scene." She explores what constitutes irony, how irony functions, in what ways it is political, and how it disrupts the space between expression and understanding. She examines irony not only as an intercommunicative act, but as a discursive practice that is, in many ways, a cultural event, which happens in discrete and often sophisticated ways. She analyzes irony's logic and the way in which it operates in relations to concepts of difference and identity, intentionality and interpretation, and the inappropriate and the appropriate. She examines these concerns vis-a-vis an array of references gathered from contemporary and modern culture. She looks at works such as the novels of Umberto Eco, the operas and symphonies of Richard Wagner, and the art of Anselm Kiefer. She focuses on popular cultural figures such as Madonna and the recent film of Shakespeare's Henry V. Her book is one of the first synthesized theoretical accounts of the cultural phenomenology of irony. In Irony's edge, Hutcheon elaborates upon her earlier work on parody (A theory of parody) and scrutinizes the mechanics of irony in fundamentally salient and critical ways.
Opera : desire, disease, death by Linda Hutcheon ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 593 libraries worldwide
"This fascinating book looks at well-known operas in which love, sexual desire, illness, and death are inextricably linked. The result is an unprecedented view of the operas themselves and the societies in which they were created." "The book focuses on operatic representations of disease and on the ways in which operas associate illness with sexuality, gender, and desire. The authors consider the frequent operatic alliance of tuberculosis with female sexuality (as in Verdi's La Traviata and Puccini's La Boheme); the relation between venereal disease and the moral transgression or failure of male heroes (as in Wagner's Parsifal and Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress); and the association of cholera and homosexual desire in Berg's Lulu and Britten's Death in Venice. A virtuosic chapter considers how assorted operas have identified smoking with sexuality and rebellion. The conclusion considers parallels between earlier operatic representations of disease and recent cultural and scientific representations of AIDS."--BOOK JACKET.

Rethinking literary history : a dialogue on theory ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"This collection of five essays by major scholars reconsiders various aspects of literary history, including key questions in contemporary literary theory such as the idea of nations and nationalism, racial memory, and colonialism and postcolonialism. Some twenty years ago, when the influence of poststructuralist theory became predominant in literary theory, traditional literary history was pushed to the margins by critiques of its teleological assumptions and uncritical acceptance of Eurocentric ideologies. In Rethinking Literary History, five major scholars, practicing literary historians and literary theorists, revisit literary history, deploying the strategies developed in literary and cultural studies over the past two decades." "The authors provide synoptic and wide-ranging discussions of each issue, and the interchange between the various authors in which they reflect on, argue with, and "rethink" each other's formulations reinforces the dialogic structure of the volume. A substantial afterword by a leading scholar rounds out the notable arguments contained in this book, a must-have for literary theorists and historians."--BOOK JACKET.
