The Prague Linguistic Circle came into being on the afternoon of October 6, 1926, when five Czech and Russian linguists gathered to hear a lecture by a German colleague. From this international beginning, the interests of the group grew to first encompass language in all its functional heterogeneity and then finally all of culture, which the Circle conceived of as a structure of sign systems. Semiotics was thus the overarching discipline for the Prague School, serving to organize all phenomena shared and exchanged by a cultural community. In recent years increasing attention has been paid to the importance of the Prague School, but writing about it has frequently been marred by misconceptions. The central aim of this volume is to correct those misconceptions and to present the diversity of interests within the Prague School--literary criticism, linguistics, theory of theater, folklore, and philosophy. These essays by Bogatyrëv, Jakobson, Karcevskij, Mukařovský, Rieger, Vodička, and Honzl are here translated into English for the first time. Some have a special historical value in illuminating critical stages of structuralist thinking; others reveal the timeliness of the School's contributions for the theoretical conflicts of our day. Each essay is accompanied by an informative introductory note, and the whole is followed by the editor's "Postscript," tracing the roots of structuralist aesthetics

How women must write : inventing the Russian woman poet by Olga Peters Hasty( )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'How Women Must Write' studies how women who make poems are variously invented in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Russia. The inventors include women poets themselves, readers who derive poets of their own design from women's poems, and male poets who fabricate women and write poems on their behalf. These distinct vantage points on how the woman poet is constituted foreground the complex interactions between writing women and their readers within ever-shifting social, political, and cultural power structures. Hasty's exploration takes us from an emphatically male Romantic age to a modernist period preoccupied with women's creativity but also its containment. Each chapter studies an episode from Russian cultural history that concretely registers women poets' engagements with disincentives. Part one describes the successes and vulnerabilities of Pavlova and Rostopchina who lay groundwork for women writing after them. Part two examines two women invented by men: Cherubina de Gabriak and Briusov's Nelli, who reflect the establishment's efforts to retain command over women's writing in the Silver Age. Part three studies Marina Tsvetaeva's and Anna Akhmatova's challenges to male authority. These are not passive victims of gender-driven limitations, but purposeful actors realizing themselves creatively and advancing the woman poet's cause. The book will appeal to the general reader as well as specialists in Russian literature, women's studies, and cultural history."--
Between us and artistic appreciation: Nabokov and the problem of distortion by James M Tonn( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vladimir Nabokov's view of art and life is confounded by a problem of "distortion," wherein meaning and aesthetic value are obscured when information from a complex form of experience is presented in an inadequate medium (a situation that is analogous to the projection of a three-dimensional globe as a two-dimensional map). For example, Nabokov claims that a work of literature originates in a state of mind in which the author can appreciate all parts of the work and their interconnections simultaneously; but when it is written out as a linear text, the relationships among the parts are rendered indistinct. This dissertation focuses on Nabokov's preoccupation with distortion and his interest in the possibility of glimpsing what is beyond it. Chapter one describes in detail the attributes of distortion and its use in Nabokov's work as a literary device. The second chapter conceptualizes the source of distortion as situations in which a less-circumscribed "outer" level of experience is viewed from a more circumscribed "inner" one. The remainder of the dissertation deals with Nabokov's fascination with ways of looking at things so that aesthetic value can be apprehended in spite of distortion. Chapter three discusses a compulsion among some of Nabokov's characters to overcome distortion by identifying a piece of information that lends order to what is observed. The fourth chapter addresses Nabokov's efforts to achieve "manifold awareness," a type of perception that resembles the simultaneous state of mind in which a work of literature is said to originate. This chapter also touches upon Nabokov's desire to escape from the constraints of time and space, which produce distortion by imposing distance and sequence on the events of life. The final chapter explains Nabokov's use of imagery of geometrical dimensions to depict vantage points from which multiple things may be viewed in juxtaposition with one another. Texts from Nabokov's entire literary career are addressed in this dissertation, demonstrating that the phenomena under discussion are a systematic concern of his work
