Julian Barnes : contemporary critical perspectives by Peter Childs( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Barnes is one of the most admired British writers of his generation. Although known primarily as a novelist and essayist, the 'chameleon of British letters' has written with distinction across the widest range of literary genres. Both he and his diverse and distinguished body of work have been awarded numerous literary prizes both in the UK and abroad. This critical guide provides a wide range of current critical perspectives on Barnes's work from best-selling novels of the 1980s, Flaubert's Parrot and The History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, up to his recent memoir Nothing to be Frightened of. Including contributions by some of the finest critics working in the contemporary field, it reflects the richness and diversity of one of Britain's greatest living writers."--Pub. desc
Women's fiction and post-9/11 contexts by Sebastian Groes( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

9/11 is not simple a date on the calendar but marks a distinct historical threshold, ushering in the war on terror and a supposed "clash of civilizations. Perhaps no date, since Virginia Woolf declared that "on or about December 1910 human character changed," has marked such a singular point in the perception of time, identity and nature. Women's writing has always been something of a counter-canon, offering modes of voice and point of view beyond that of the "man" of reason. This collection of essays explores the two problems of what it means to write as a woman and what it means to write in the twenty-first century
The making of London : London in contemporary literature by Sebastian Groes( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London has become the focus of a ferocious imaginative energy since the rise of Thatcher. The Making of London analyses the body of exceptional work by writers who have unconditionally committed their writing to the many lives of a city undergoing complex transformations. The book traces a major shift in the representation of the capital city, from the postmodern obsession with textuality, the shoring up of London's myths against a declining social fabric, and an exuberant multicultural utopia, to an anxious post-9/11 metropolis that has fallen apart. Is London undone?
Memory in the twenty-first century : new critical perspectives from the arts, humanities, and sciences by Sebastian Groes( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book maps and analyses the changing state of memory at the start of the twenty-first century via short essays written by scientists, scholars and writers. An experimental, multidisciplinary volume, it presents new research whilst recontextualising memory by investigating the impact of new conditions such as the digital revolution, climate change and an ageing population. It contains contributions by researchers at the foreground of new thinking about the human mind, such as N. Katherine Hayles and Claire Colebrook, as well as by writers such as Will Self, Maggie Gee and Adam Roberts. The interlinking work shows that the multiplicity of revolutions force us to reconsider our thinking about what it means to be a human being in the twenty-first century. Memory is increasingly becoming a collective, globally shared networking activity, whilst the role of the human mind is increasingly marginal, and taken over by machines. Human nature is rapidly changing

British fictions of the sixties : the making of the swinging decade by Sebastian Groes( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the major socio-political changes that marked the sixties in relationship to the development of literature over the decade. This book is the first critical study to acknowledge that the1960s can only be understood if, next to its socio-political history, its fictions and mythologies are acknowledged as a vital constituent in our understanding of the decade. Groes uncovers a major epistemological shift, and presents a powerful meta-narrative about post-war literature in the UK, and beyond. This work offers a re-examination of canonical writers such as Iris Murdoch, Angela carter, Muriel Spark and John Fowles. It also pays critical attention to avant-garde writers including Ann Quin, Brigid Brophy, Eva Figes, Alan Burns, Christine Brooke-Rose, Eva Tucker, and J.G. Ballard, presenting a comprehensive insight into the continuing power the decade exerts on the contemporary imagination
