Conversations with W.S. Merwin by W. S Merwin( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conversations with W.S. Merwin is the first collection of interviews with former United States Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin. Spanning almost six decades of conversations, the collection touches on such topics as Merwin's early influences, his location within the twin poles of Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau, his extraordinary work as a translator, as well as his decades-long interest in environmental conservation. Anticipating the current sustainability movement and the debates surrounding major and minor literatures, Merwin was, and still is, a visionary. At age eighty-eight, he is among the most distinguished poets, translators, and thinkers in the United States. A major link between the period of literary modernism and its contemporary extensions, Merwin has been a force in American letters for many decades, and his translations from Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and other languages, have earned him unanimous praise and admiration. Merwin also wrote at the forefront of literature's environmental advocacy and early on articulated concerns about ecology and sustainability. Now for the first time, this book offers insight into the various dimensions of Merwin's thought by treating his interviews as a self-standing category in his oeuvre. More than casual narratives that interpret the occasional poem or relay an occasional experience, they afford literary and cultural historians a view into the larger through-lines of Merwin's thinking"--
Gramophone, film, typewriter by Friedrich A Kittler( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toward the end of the nineteenth century, the hegemony of the printed word was shattered by the arrival of media technologies that offered new ways of communicating and storing data. Previously, writing had operated by way of symbolic mediation, but phonography, photography, and cinematography stored physical effects of the real in the shape of sound waves and light. The entire question of referentiality had to be recast in light of these new media technologies. Part technological history of the emergent new media in the late nineteenth century, part theoretical discussion of the responses to these media - including texts by Rilke, Kafka, and Heidegger - Gramophone, Film, Typewriter analyzes this momentous shift using insights from the work of Foucault, Lacan, and McLuhan. It is a continuation as well as a detailed elaboration of the second part of the author's Discourse Networks, 1800/1900 (Stanford, 1990)."

Reading Matters : Narrative in the New Media Ecology( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The convergence of twentieth-century narrative and technology is one of the most important developments in current literary study. Roughly a decade after the founding of the Society for Literature and Science, and after the appearance of such influential books as Kathleen Woodward's Culture of Information and William Paulson's Noise of Culture, Joseph Tabbi and Michael Wutz have edited a landmark volume that seeks to summarize this still-emerging field. Through the essays and the wide-ranging overview provided by the editors' introduction, Reading Matters shows how these theoretical concerns can contribute to the practical study of narrative, and it helps to make the field far more accessible to students and other serious readers of fiction.The twelve original essays, published here for the first time, are the work of distinguished scholar-critics on both sides of the Atlantic. They cover the range of contemporary literature, from the canonical novels of high modernism and postmodernism through subjects only recently put on the academic agenda, such as cyberpunk and hypertext fiction.In an age that has proclaimed the death of the novel many times over, the editors and contributors argue persuasively for the continued vitality of literary narrative. By responding in ingenious ways to the capabilities of other media, they assert, the novel has enlarged and redefined its territory of representation and its range of techniques and play, while maintaining its viability in the new media assemblage

Celebrates and illuminates the legacy of one of America's most innovative and consequential 20th century novelists. In 2002, following the posthumous publication of William Gaddis's collected nonfiction and his final novel and Jonathan Franzen's lengthy attack on him in The New Yorker, a number of partisan articles appeared in support of Gaddis's legacy. In a review in The London Review of Books, critic Hal Foster suggested a reason for disparate responses to Gaddis's reputation: Gaddis's unique hybridity, his ability to "write in the gap between two dispensations, -betwe
