Exploring lost borders : critical essays on Mary Austin( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While many of Mary Austin's stories and essays have been compiled and a number of her novels reprinted, this is the first book-length collection of essays on her work. The editors have created a volume that covers the range of Austin's writing in varied genres - exploring both familiar texts and those which have until now received little critical attention and offering a variety of critical perspectives. Some writers extend the established approaches to Austin's work, such as ecocriticism and feminist criticism. Others rethink and redefine the roles in which Austin has usually been cast, as "nature writer," "Western American writer," and social critic. Others read Austin within new theoretical frameworks such as consumer and postcolonial studies."--Jacket

Dirty words in Deadwood : literature and the postwestern by Melody Graulich( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dirty Words in "Deadwood" showcases literary analyses of the Deadwood television series by leading western American literary critics. Whereas previous reaction to the series has largely addressed the question of historical accuracy rather than intertextuality or literary complexity, Melody Graulich and Nicolas S. Witschi's edited volume brings a much-needed perspective to Deadwood's representation of the frontier West. As Graulich observes in her introduction: "With its emotional coherence, compelling characterizations, compressed structural brilliance, moral ambiguity, language experiments, interpretation of the past, relevance to the present, and engagement with its literary forebears, Deadwood is an aesthetic triumph as historical fiction and, like much great literature, makes a case for the humanistic value of storytelling." From previously unpublished interviews with series creator David Milch to explorations of sexuality, disability, cinematic technique, and western narrative, this collection focuses on Deadwood as a series ultimately about the imagination, as a verbal and visual construct, and as a literary masterpiece that richly rewards close analysis and interpretation
Aunt Jane of Kentucky by Eliza Calvert Hall( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well known for her gentle folk wisdom, the elderly fictional Aunt Jane vividly describes a picturesque and almost vanished way of life in the rural South of the last century. Her words recall lavish Sunday dinners, courtships, quilting bees, church meetings, and county fair competitions. Yet Aunt Jane of Kentucky is more than a collection of reminiscences about the region of Western Kentucky where Eliza Caroline Obenchain (who published under the name Eliza Calvert Hall) was born and raised. A dedicated suffragist, Obenchain worked to win rights for women in the areas of property ownership and divorce. Now modern readers can become acquainted with the strong women of these tales

Considers Gilman's place in American literary and social history by examining her relationships to other prominent intellectuals of her era. By placing Charlotte Perkins Gilman in the company of her contemporaries, this collection seeks to correct misunderstandings of the feminist writer and lecturer as an isolated radical. Gilman believed and preached that no life is ever led in isolation; indeed, the cornerstone of her philosophy was the idea that "humanity is a relation." Gilman's highly public and combative stances as a critic and social activist brought her into contact and conf
