The Emperor Redressed

by Dwight Eddins, The Emperor Redressed Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Emperor Redressed books, The essays in this volume represent a collective questioning of the poststructuralist ascendancy, and of the assumptions involved therein, by a group of prominent scholars and critics: M. H. Abrams, Nina Baym, Frederick Crews, Ihab Hassan, David Lehman, Richard Levin, Paisley Livingston, Saul Morson, and John Searle. Assembled at The University of Alabama for the 1992 symposium from which this book takes its title, these scholars were charged with the task of examining the truth-value, methodology, practice, and humanistic status of poststructuralist theories and with speculating on what their conclusions portend for the future of theory. Some of the deficiencies "uncovered" in the emperor's apparel include the failure of poststructuralist theory to answer to the complexities of literary experience, its tendency to be self-ratifying, its betrayal of the feminist achievement, its conflation of style and logic, its attempt to impose apocalyptic finalities on history's open-endedness, and its ignorance of much in current language philosophy. The writings of Jacques Derrida, in particular, come in for skeptical scrutiny by Abrams, Livingston, and Searle. The book concludes with a lively panel discussion in which the audience joins the fray.

The Future Of Feminist Eighteenth Century Scholarship

by Robin Runia, The Future Of Feminist Eighteenth Century Scholarship Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Future Of Feminist Eighteenth Century Scholarship books, There is an unfortunate argument being made that feminist scholarship of eighteenth-century literary studies has fulfilled its potential in academic circles. The Future of Eighteenth-Century Feminist Scholarship: Beyond Recovery shows us otherwise. Each of the essays in this volume reaffirms the feminist principles that form the foundation of this area, then builds upon them by acknowledging the inevitable conflicts they or their subjects have faced and the contradictions they or their subjects have lived.

Commendatory Verse And Authorship In The English Renaissance

by Wayne Chandler, Commendatory Verse And Authorship In The English Renaissance Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Commendatory Verse And Authorship In The English Renaissance books, Commendatory verse - poetry written by one author specifically to commend the work of another - presents a window on English Renaissance literary culture. This study examines particularly the paratextual functions of commendatory poetry and the relationship of those functions to contemporary Renaissance conceptions of authorship. Chapters examine the poem as an advertisement for the book to which it is attached and its role in book-selling, the state of patronage, the way the writers promoted themselves through the poems they wrote for others (with Ben Jonson serving as an example), the poems' influence on reader response, with a discussion of William Shakespeare, examining the interplay of personal agency and cultural work in the liminary material of Mr William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories and Tragedies. One appendix identifies the original material of all commendatory poems written by Ben Jonson, and another identifies all printed drama before 1641 accompanied by commendatory verse.
