The prophetic law : essays in Judaism, Girardianism, literary studies, and the ethical by Sandor Goodhart( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To read literature is to read the way literature reads. Ren ̌Girard's immense body of work supports this thesis bountifully. Whether engaging the European novel, ancient Greek tragedy, Shakespeare's plays, or Jewish and Christian scripture, Girard teaches us to read prophetically, not by offering a method he has developed, but by presenting the methodologies they have developed, the interpretative readings already available within (and constitutive of) such bodies of classical writing. In The Prophetic Law, literary scholar, theorist, and critic Sandor Goodhart divides his essays on Ren ̌Girard since 1983 into four groupings. In three, he addresses Girardian concerns with Biblical scripture (Genesis and Exodus), literature (the European novel and Shakespeare), and philosophy and religious studies issues (especially ethical and Jewish subject matters). In a fourth section, he reproduces some of the polemical exchanges in which he has participated with others-including Ren ̌Girard himself-as part of what could justly be deemed Jewish-Christian dialogue. The twelve texts that make up the heart of this captivating volume constitute the bulk of the author's writings to date on Girard outside of his three previous books on Girardian topics. Taken together, they offer a comprehensive engagement with Girard's sharpest and most original literary, anthropological, and scriptural insights
Of Levinas and Shakespeare : "to see another thus"( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scholars have used Levinas as a lens through which to view many authors and texts, fields of endeavor, and works of art. Yet no book-length work or dedicated volume has brought this thoughtful lens to bear in a sustained discussion of the works of Shakespeare. It should not surprise anyone that Levinas identified his own thinking as Shakespearean. "The plays the thing" for both, or put differently, the observation of intersubjectivity is. What may surprise and indeed delight all learned readers is to consider what we might yet gain from considering each in light of the other. Comprising leading scholars in philosophy and literature, Of Levinas and Shakespeare: "To See Another Thus" is the first book-length work to treat both great thinkers. Lear, Hamlet, and Macbeth dominate the discussion; however, essays also address Cymbeline, The Merchant of Venice, and even poetry, such as Venus and Adonis. Volume editors planned and contributors deliver a thorough treatment from multiple perspectives, yet none intends this volume to be the last word on the subject; rather, they would have it be a provocation to further discussion, an enticement for richer enjoyment, and an invitation for deeper contemplation of Levinas and Shakespeare."--Publisher's description
For René Girard : essays in friendship and in truth by Sandor Goodhart( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his explorations of the relations between the sacred and violence, René Girard has hit upon the origin of culture - the way culture began, the way it continues to organize itself. The way communities of human beings structure themselves in a manner that is different from that of other species on the planet. Like Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Émile Durkheim, Martin Buber, or others who have changed the way we think in the humanities or in the human sciences, Girard has put forth a set of ideas that have altered our perceptions of the world in which we function. We will n

Sacrificing commentary : reading the end of literature by Sandor Goodhart( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To support his argument, Goodhart offers a close analysis of Sophocles' Oedipus Tyrannus, Shakespeare's Richard II, four passages from the Hebrew Torah (the story of Joseph and his brothers, the Ten Commandments, the story of Jonah, and the story of Job), and a talk given shortly after the war by Yiddish poet and playwright Halpern Leivick. Goodhart concludes that criticism as we know it within a formal academic humanities setting, far from expounding the critical reading a given work makes available to us, more often acts out or repeats the very structures or conflicts that are its subject matter
Sacrifice, scripture, and substitution : readings in ancient Judaism and Christianity( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sacrifice, scripture, and substitution: readinga in ancient Judaism and Christianity is divided into two parts. The first opens with a conversation in which René Girard and Sandor Goodhart explore the relation between imitation and violence throughout human history, especially in religious culture. It is followed by essays on the subject of sacrifice contributed by some of the most distinguished scholars in the field. The second part contains essays on specifric scriptural texts. The authors explore new ways of applying Girardian analysis to episodes of sacrifice and scapegoating, deomonstrating that fertile ground remains to further our understanding of violence in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures
Möbian Nights : reading literature and darkness by Sandor Goodhart( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Möbian Nights: Literary Reading in a Time of Crisis develops a new understanding of literary reading: that in the wake of disasters like the Holocaust, death remains a premise of our experience rather than a future. Challenging customary "aesthetic" assumptions that we write in order not to die, Sandor Goodhart suggests (with Kafka) we write to die. Drawing upon analyses developed by Girard, Foucault, Blanchot, and Levinas (along with examples from Homer to Beckett), Möbian Nights proposes that all literature works "autobiographically", which is to say, in the wake of disaster; with the credo "I died; therefore, I am"; and for which the language of topology (for example, the "Möbius strip") offers a vocabulary for naming the "deep structure" of such literary, critical, and scriptural sacrificial and anti-sacrificial dynamics."--

René Girard and creative reconciliation by Thomas Ryba( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contribution of this book to the field of reconciliation is both theoretical and practical, recognizing that good theory guides effective practice and practice is the ground for compelling theory. Using a Girardian hermeneutic as a starting point, a new conceptual Gestalt emerges in these essays, one not fully integrated in a formal way but showing a clear understanding of some of the challenges and possibilities for dealing with the deep divisions, enmity, hatred, and other effects of violence
