Mythology in the modern novel; a study of prefigurative techniques by John J White( Book )

29 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and held by 2,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.J. White reexamines the use of myth in fiction in order to bring a new terminological precision into the field. While concentrating on the German novel (Mann, Broch, and Nossack), he discusses the work of Alberto Moravia, John Bowen, Michel Butor, and Macdonald Harris as well, in order to show the modern predilection for myth in whatever national literature. Throughout his discussion, Mr. White delineates carefully his specific subject: the novel in which mythological motifs are used to prefigure events and character-Joyce's Ulysses is, of course, the archetypal novel in this tradition.

Bertolt Brecht's dramatic theory by John J White( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bertolt Brecht's Dramatic Theory is the first detailed study in English of Bertolt Brecht's writings on the theater to take into account the substantial new material first made available in the recent German edition of his collected works. It offers in-depth analyses of Brecht's canonical essays on the theater, ranging from his notes of 1930 on the innovative opera Mahagonny to the unfinished Messingkauf project of the late 1940s and early GDR years. Close readings of the individual essays are supplemented by surveys of the connotations and changing status within Brecht's dramaturgical oeuvre of key theoretical terms, including epic and anti-Aristotelian theater, de-familiarization, historicization, and dialectical theater."--Jacket
