American literature & the culture wars by Gregory S Jay( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory S. Jay boldly challenges the future of American literary studies. Why pursue the study and teaching of a distinctly American literature? What is the appropriate purpose and scope of such pursuits? Is the notion of a traditional canon of great books out of date? Where does American literature leave off and Mexican or Caribbean or Canadian or postcolonial literature begin? Are today's campus conflicts fueled more by economics or ideology? Jay addresses these questions and others relating to American literary studies to explain why this once arcane academic discipline found itself so often in the news during the culture wars of the 1990s. While asking some skeptical questions about new directions and practices, Jay argues forcefully in favor of opening the borders of American literary and cultural analysis. He relates the struggle for representation in literary theory to a larger cultural clash over the meaning and justice of representation, then shows how this struggle might expand both the contents and the teaching of American literature. In an account of the vexed legacy of the Declaration of Independence, he provides a historical context for the current quarrels over literature and politics. Prominent among these debates are those over multiculturalism, which Jay takes up in an essay on the impasses of identity politics. In closing, he considers how the field of comparative American cultural studies might be constructed

T.S. Eliot and the poetics of literary history by Gregory S Jay( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory Jay uses such approaches as psychoanalysis and deconstruction to examine the development of Eliot's ambivalent attitude toward past voices. Eliot's primary struggle, Jay argues, was to rewrite his many poetic inheritances, transfiguring the texts of the dead. Jay begins his study by showing how Eliot's poetic and personal anxieties shaped his modernist rewriting of literary history, creating versions of such authors as Dante, Shakespeare, and Virgil that were less astute critical portraits than troubled self reflections

"... Jay shows that this tradition [of white-authored protest fiction about racism in America] remains vital because every generation must relearn the lessons of antiracism and formulate effective cultural narratives for transmitting intellectual and affective [sic] tools useful in fighting injustice."

Summer spirit : a Ryan Kinkaid mystery by Gregory S Jay( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ryan Kinkaid, a successful gay Manhattan antique dealer has had it with life in New York City, especially his random love life. Ryan has what most New Yorker's want -- his own successful business, and a mortgage-free brownstone on West 71st Street. However, he is lacking one very important thing in his life, a meaningful and loving relationship. With the approaching summer heat and his restlessness, he escapes from the city by taking a four month rental in historic and picturesque Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Renting a house built in 1810, kindred spirit Nicholas reaches out for contact, and Ryan finds himself wanting to know about the past. However, Nicholas is not the only one wanting Ryan's attention. Ty, a handsome local man, also has strong desires for Ryan. The stark contrast of the past collides with the present in this tale of lost and betrayed love, and irrational and undying prejudice

Autumn reveal : a Ryan Kinkaid mystery by Gregory S Jay( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A peaceful Sunday morning is transformed for gay antique dealer, Ryan Kinkaid, when he reads a report in the local newspaper of a teenage boy found dead in a field a few miles away from the Portsmouth, New Hampshire home where he lives with his partner, Ty. It's not where the body was found that concerns Ryan. It was the boy's mother's fear that her son had been killed by a bully. Bullied himself when he was younger, Ryan feels an obligation to stand up for the victim and find the killer, even though he had promised Ty last winter that he wouldn't get involved in any more dangerous pursuits. But his commitment falters when Andrew Colfax--Ty's supervisor and a younger, extremely attractive man--causes Ryan to question his lover's fidelity. As this story unfolds and his initial assumptions are refuted, emotions that Ryan has long since suppressed return and force him to ask himself whose side he is on, the victim's or the killer's
