Zones of Re-membering : Time, Memory, and (un)Consciousness by Don Gifford( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Don Gifford in "Zones of Re-membering" shows clearly, thoughtfully, yet entertainingly how no one explanation will account for the depth and complexity of human experience and its grounding in Memory. Because consciousness is a function of Memory, "life without Memory is no life at all" as Alzheimer's all too frequently demonstrates. Both our individual and collective Memory is stored in the arts, he contends, which in turn provide a way of knowing and of nourishing Memory and consciousness. Memory, like language, is never really stable or accurate but appears as narrative and these narratives collectively form our entire culture. For Gifford, the profoundest explorer of the human consciousness, time, and memory is James Joyce and in its range of reference, wit, and humanity the spirit of Joyce permeates this book"--Page 4 of cover

The novels of Kurt Vonnegut : imagining being an American by Donald E Morse( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than theorizing about novels by the contemporary American science fiction writer, Morse (English and rhetoric, Oakland U.) offers a reading of them, drawing on literary criticism, biography, and other disciplines. He discusses such topics as uttering our painful secret; no reviews and out of print; under an inexplicable sentence of death; and thinking intelligently and ethically about science, art, and war. Some of the material has been previously published. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Irish theatre in transition : from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century by Donald E Morse( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irish Theatre in Transition celebrates the creative and richly vibrant Irish theatre which since its inception has always been in transition. Fifteen Irish theatre scholars, building on Christopher Murray's foundational essay on the first hundred years, explore Irish theatre's significance under the headings of 'Engaging with a Changing Reality' (of the Celtic Tiger, the sexual revolution, dementia), 'Enhanced Theatricality', and 'Inventiveness and Expanding the Stage' as well as discussing Irish plays in London, varied performances across Ireland in a year, Shakespeare, and Sam Shepard as Irish playwright. The book is designed to show some of the myriad forms of transition: how this theatre reflects the changing conditions of a changing society and nation; how it innovates by returning to its roots or to abandoned but still viable theatrical conventions; how it continually reinvents itself and experiments with new media, and how it moves beyond the local and dares to imagine new audiences. --Provided by publisher

The delegated intellect : Emersonian essays on literature, science, and art in honor of Don Gifford( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume honors Don Gifford, master teacher, exacting researcher, and provocative writer. The essays reflect some but not all of the disciplines that Gifford taught - literature, art, ecology, invention, American culture, and the history of ideas. Heeding Emerson's call to "search for facts amid appearances" and to pursue "the ultimate reason of [all things and experience]" these essays illustrate how contemporary scholars in a variety of fields fulfill their role as society's delegated intellect

The mythic fantasy of Robert Holdstock : critical essays on the fiction( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These critical essays explore the varied output of Holdstock by displaying his works against the backdrop of folk and fairy tales, dissecting their spaciotemporal order, and examining them as psychic fantasies of our unconscious life or as exempla of the sublime. The individual novels of the Mythago Wood sequence are explored, as is the Merlin Codex series"--Provided by publisher

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silenced voices : Hungarian plays from Transylvania( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a timely reminder of how theatre can not just entertain, but enlighten and transform us too. The five plays it collects are wonderfully theatrical, moving fluidly from absurdism to tragedy, and from satire to the darkly comic. The translators give us versions that will stimulate and delight readers. performers and audiences. And by giving voice to the 'forgotten playwrights of Central Europe', they also deeply enrich our understanding of the relationship between art, ethics and politics in Europe - both in the past and the present."--BOOK JACKET
