  • Regard for the Other: Autothanatography in Rousseau, De Quincey, Baudelaire, and Wilde

    Karton Kapak
    Although much has been written on autobiography, the same cannot be said of autothanatography, the writing of one's death. This study starts from the deconstructive premise that autobiography is aporetic, not or not only a matter of a subject strategizing with language to produce an exemplary identity but a matter also of its responding to an exorbitant call to write its death. The I-dominated representations of particular others and of the privileged other to whom a work is addressed, must therefore be set against an alterity plaguing the I from within or shadowing it from without. This alterity makes itself known in writing as the potential of the text to carry messages that remain secret to the confessing subject. Anticipation of the potential for the confessional text to say what Augustine calls the secret I do not know,the secret of death, engages the autothanatographical subject in a dynamic, inventive, and open-ended process of identification. The subject presented in these texts is not one that has already evolved an interior life that it seeks to reveal to others, but one that speaks to us as still in process. Through its exorbitant response, it gives intimations of an interiority and an ethical existence to come. Baudelaire emerges as a central figure for this understanding of autobiography as autothanatography through his critique of the narcissism of a certain Rousseau, his translation of De Quincey's confessions, with their vertiginously ungrounded subject-in-construction, his artistic practice of self-conscious, thorough-going doubleness, and his service to Wilde as model for an aporetic secrecy. The author discusses the interruption of narrative that must be central to the writing of one's death and addresses the I's dealings with the aporias of such structuring principles as secrecy, Levinasian hospitality, or interiorization as translation. The book makes a strong intervention in the debate over one of the most-read genres of our time.

  • Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge

    Karton Kapak
    Der Moloch Paris. Eine schwangere Frau schiebt sich an einer Mauer entlang, der Stein ist schützender als die Menschen. Zur Vereinzelung gezwungen, sind die Menschen auf eine kalte, hässliche Welt zurückgeworfen, die »nach Jodoform, nach dem Fett von pommes frites, nach Angst« riecht. Mutig wagt Malte Laurids Brigge, letzter Spross einer aussterbenden Adelsfamilie, den Blick hinter die Oberfläche der Dinge und findet ein »neues Leben voller neuer Bedeutungen«. Rainer Maria Rilkes einziger Roman ist mit seiner radikalen Subjektivität ein Meilenstein der literarischen Moderne.

  • All About Love: Anatomy of an Unruly Emotion

    Sert Kapak
    Unruly, unpredictable—love is a maddening deity. In this insightful and eloquent meditation on that many-splendored thing, Lisa Appignanesi draws together psychology, literature, popular culture, and her own experiences in order to tangle with love's paradoxes across the span of our lives. Beginning with the rose-tinted raptures of first love, she proceeds to love in marriage, triangulated love, jealousy and adultery, love in the family, and friendship. By illuminating the expectations, the joys and difficulties, and the cultural undercurrents that accompany each stage, Appignanesi raises provocative questions about love in the twenty-first century: Has the unbinding of obstacles to love emptied it of meaning? Do our desires for variety and experimentation result in increased anxiety? What gains and losses have come from greater openness and equality and the burgeoning sphere of virtual fantasy? As rewarding as it is captivating, All about Love will leave you a little wiser about the emotion that rules our lives. 10 black-and-white illustrations

  • Sir Nigel: A Novel of the Hundred Years' War

    Karton Kapak
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a prolific writer born in Scotland, who started out as a medical doctor and took an occupational detour that made him world-famous. While studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh, he augmented his income by writing stories—a pursuit that led to the creation of Sherlock Holmes, one of literature's best-loved detectives. Doyle also wrote many works of history and science fiction, plus plays and poetry. Set against the fourteenth-century war between England and France, Sir Nigel is an action-packed adventure classic, filled to the brim with history, conflict, chivalry, and a dash of romance.This illustrated epic, which the author calls "the most complete, satisfying, and ambitious thing I have ever done," introduces young squire Nigel Loring as he leaves home to serve King Edward at the start of the Hundred Years' War. Though small of stature, Nigel possesses a "lion heart and the blood of a hundred soldiers thrilling in his veins" that propel him to accomplish heroic acts in his quest for knighthood. The star upon his path is his beloved Lady Mary, who waits for him to complete three courageous acts so he can win her hand in marriage. Faced with fierce combat, a desperate battle at sea, and a terrifying encounter with the Red Ferret that leaves him close to death, can Nigel fulfill his promise?

  • Romanticism and Improvisation, 1750-1850 (Cambridge Studies in Romanticism)

    During the Romantic era, especially in Italy, performers known as improvvisatori and improvvisatrici extemporised poetry in public in response to subjects requested by their audiences. This type of performance fascinated Grand Tourists from northern Europe, who reported on poetic improvisers in hundreds of travel accounts, journals, letters, and periodical articles. By uncovering historical data and interpreting literary texts, Professor Esterhammer identifies patterns in the evolving responses of English, German, French, and Russian writers to the experience of improvisation. She explores how improvisation interacts with Romantic ideas about genius, spontaneity, orality, and emotional expressiveness, and relates to evolving concepts of gender and nation. Esterhammer goes on to interpret the influence that the figure of the poetic improviser had in nineteenth-century English and European fiction. In this context, the improvvisatore casts new light on conflicts between poetic genius and socio-economic constraints, and on the evolution of the Bildungsroman.

  • Macropolitics of Nineteenth-century Literature: Nationalism, Exoticism, Imperialism (New Americanists)

    Macropolitics of Nineteenth-century Literature: Nationalism, Exoticism, Imperialism (New Americanists)

    Karton Kapak
    Increasingly in the last decade, macropolitics--a consideration of political transformations at the level of the state--has become a focus for cultural inquiry. From the macropolitical perspective afforded by contemporary postcolonial studies, the essays in this collection explore the relationship between politics and culture by examining developments in a wide range of nineteenth-century writing.The dozen essays gathered here span the entire era of colonization and discuss the British Isles, Europe, the United States, India, the Caribbean, and Africa. Addressing the works of Wordsworth, Shelley, Dickens, Melville, Flaubert, Conrad, and Charlotte Bronte, as well as explorers' reports, Bible translations, popular theater, and folklore, the contributors consider such topics as the political function of aesthetic containment, the redefinitions of nationality under the pressure of imperial ambition, and the coexistence of imperial and revolutionary tendencies. New historical data and new interpretive perspectives alter our conception of established masterpieces and provoke new understandings of the political and cultural context within which these works emerged. This anthology demonstrates that the macropolitical concept of imperialism can provide a new understanding of nineteenth-century cultural production by integrating into a single process the well-established topics of nationalism and exoticism.First published in 1991 (University of Pennsylvania Press), "Macropolitics of Nineteenth-Century Literature" is now available in paperback. Offering agenda-setting essays in cultural and Victorian studies, it will be of interest to students and scholars of British and American literature, literary theory, and colonial and postcolonial studies.

  • Dialectics of the Will: Freedom, Power, and Understanding in Modern French and German Thought (German Literary Theory and Culture Series)

    Dialectics of the Will: Freedom, Power, and Understanding in Modern French and German Thought (German Literary Theory and Culture Series)

    Sert Kapak
    The concept of the will is essential to Western thought. Whereas Greek philosophers developed no single model of the will, Christian philosophers explored the idea of the individual will and its relationship with God as well as the possibility for self-determination. John H. Smith reexamines the will in terms of the philosophical debates that began in the seventeenth century. He looks at the act of willing as existing in a domain of contradictions, such as freedom and determinism and unity and fragmentation, to explain how we can be considered free beings. Dialectics of the Will thus develops a new model of human agency by analyzing modem and postmodern theory in Germany and France.   The dialectical model of the will that Smith posits contributes to ongoing discussions of freedom, power, and understanding in Western thought. After examining a range of historical debates about the will and the possibilities and limitations essential to this concept, he examines the works of Kant, Nietzsche, and Heidegger and their reception by Adorno, Lacan, Habermas, Foucault, Gadamer, and Derrida. By engaging conflicting theoretical positions of contemporary French and German thinkers, Smith demonstrates how theorists rely upon and can benefit from a dialectical conception of willing.   Dialectics of the Will is a fascinating study that will interest feminist and gender theorists as well as students and scholars of German philosophy, critical theory, and intellectual history.

  • Lessons of Romanticism: A Critical Companion

    Lessons of Romanticism: A Critical Companion

    Karton Kapak
    Moving beyond views of European Romanticism as an essentially poetic development, Lessons of Romanticism strives to strengthen a critical awareness of the genres, historical institutions, and material practices that comprised the culture of the period. This anthology—in recasting Romanticism in its broader cultural context—ranges across literary studies, art history, musicology, and political science and combines a variety of critical approaches, including gender studies, Lacanian analysis, and postcolonial studies.With over twenty essays on such diverse topics as the aesthetic and pedagogical purposes of art exhibits in London, the materiality of late Romantic salon culture, the extracanonical status of Jane Austen and Fanny Burney, and Romantic imagery in Beethoven’s music and letters, Lessons of Romanticism reveals the practices that were at the heart of European Romantic life. Focusing on the six decades from 1780 to 1832, this collection is arranged thematically around gender and genre, literacy, marginalization, canonmaking, and nationalist ideology. As Americanists join with specialists in German culture, as Austen is explored beside Beethoven, and as discussions on newly recovered women’s writings follow fresh discoveries in long-canonized texts, these interdisciplinary essays not only reflect the broad reach of contemporary scholarship but also point to the long-neglected intertextual and intercultural dynamics in the various and changing faces of Romanticism itself.   Contributors.

  • Brief an den Vater

    Brief an den Vater

    Karton Kapak
    "Der Brief an den Vater" ist ein 1919 verfasster, niemals abgeschickter Brief Franz Kafkas an seinen Vater. Er wurde postum 1952 in der "Neuen Rundschau" veröffentlicht und ist ein bevorzugter Text für psychoanalytische und biographische Studien über Kafka. Nachdem Franz Kafka im Januar 1919 bei einem Kuraufenthalt in Schelesen (Böhmen) Julie Wohryzeck kennengelernt hatte und sich einige Monate später mit ihr verlobte, reagierte sein Vater ungehalten auf seine neuen und unstandesgemäßen Heiratspläne. Es wird angenommen, dass dies der Auslöser für die Verfassung des Briefes zwischen dem 10. und 13. November 1919 war. Die Hochzeit war ursprünglich für November geplant, fand jedoch nicht statt. Der vordergründige Anlass war eine vergebliche Wohnungssuche. Der ausladende Brief besteht im Original aus 103 handschriftlichen Seiten (45 Seiten in der Maschinenfassung), auf denen Kafka versucht, seinen Vaterkonflikt schreibend zu bewältigen. Viele seiner Lebensschwierigkeiten schreibt er der totalen Wesensverschiedenheit zwischen sich und dem Vater zu. Der Brief endet mit der Hoffnung, dass sich durch ihn beide ein wenig beruhigen würden und Leben und Sterben leichter gemacht werden könnten.
