The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Science
34,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1959, C. P. Snow lamented the presence of what he called the 'two cultures': the apparently unbridgeable chasm of understanding and knowledge between modern literature and modern science. In recent decades, scholars have worked diligently and often with great ingenuity to interrogate claims like Snow's that represent twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature and science as radically alienated from each other. The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Science offers a roadmap to developments that have contributed to the demonstration and emergence of reciprocal connections between the two domains of inquiry. Weaving together theory and empiricism, individual chapters explore major figures - Shakespeare, Bacon, Emerson, Darwin, Henry James, William James, Whitehead, Einstein, Empson, and McClintock, major genres and modes of writing - fiction, science fiction, non-fiction prose, poetry, and dramatic works, and major theories and movements - pragmatism, critical theory, science studies, cognitive science, ecocriticism, cultural studies, affect theory, digital humanities, and expanded empiricisms. This book will be a key resource for scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate students alike.

Pakistani Cultural Discourse in English Language
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book reveals how native cultural patterns of thought and behavior mould the shape of English in Pakistan and turn it a contextually appropriate language variety, deviant from British Standard English and American English. The author has analysed this language variety (Pakistani English) both at formal and expressive domains of the language such as lexis, syntax, semantics, idioms, etc. The study relies on Bapsi Sidhwa's works to provide examples of local standard English variety. Moreover, it is argued in this book that local subject matter, culture bound linguistic and discoursal features, characters, themes, and culture specific structural forms do not appear in Sidhwa's works as decorative device to attract the world market. Rather, all of them serve as meaningful cultural markers and being essential in the context, evolve naturally in her works. The analysis in this study maintains that like all mature artists, Sidhwa manifests responsibility towards readers by ensuring the international intelligibility of her language in fiction.

The Bloomsbury Reform
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Old Bloomsbury still survives. If you seek proof look around Virginia Woolf. The myth of Bloomsbury can be traced back to the early twentieth century, and one cannot claim that its influence has ever completely perished. Bloomsbury was a group of young men and women who, through their individual capacities and joint efforts, worked to reform the British culture which they felt had become rather moribund. The artists within the group introduced art of a more abstract nature, and their endeavours were unsurprisingly tested by harsh criticism. Concomitantly, the writers of the group, mainly Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf, were facing their own ordeals as they gallantly attempted to alter the even more hostile domains of biography and fiction. The Bloomsbury legacy survives till this very day, for not only have we inherited their unparalleled literature and art, their unique theories, and their many letters and diaries, but we are, to some extent, heirs to a freer lifestyle that Bloomsbury itself promoted.

Contemporary Writing and the Politics of Space
67,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collective volume explores questions of space in contemporary literary texts from a range of theoretical perspectives. In addition to mapping the "spatial turn" in literary and cultural studies, this volume also brings together studies that apply spatial theory to the analysis of literary texts. Contributors tackle a broad range of themes, including how prose fiction addresses spaces of intimacy, abjection, espionage, discipline, madness, post-human identities, post-communist cities, the architecture of dystopia, and coercive medical practices. In turn, these themes open up analysis to key areas within contemporary literary and cultural criticism, including the study of sexuality, politics, power, and identity, the configuration of urban, regional, and national spaces and borders, and the delineation of private and public domains. The contributors reflect on diverse authors from English-speaking cultures and focus on a variety of genres and periods while acknowledging recent research in space studies and offering original contributions to what has now become a thriving field.

Writing Beyond Domesticity: Contemporary Indian...
55,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There has been a conspicuous shift in Indian women's writing in English. Rightly hailed as the aesthetic voice of contemporary Indian woman, it displays narrative dexterity, linguistic robustness, stylistic boldness, thematic innovation and polemical thrust. It is an articulation of female consciousness that instead of wallowing in maudlin sentimentality or domestic enclosures actively intervenes in the public sphere. Instead of merely reacting to the derivative notions of gendered femaleness, it offers a sturdy renegotiation of issues of public importance, and foregrounds this renegotiation as a necessary stage in the process of self-realization and self-representation. Not only the concerns but even the contribution of women writers in the literary world has become comprehensive and manifold. Today one sees their creativity straddling across genres as diverse as travel writing and detective fiction. Contemporary women writers have emerged and established themselves as confident professionals empowered enough to deal with any issue of public significance. Many of these writers have been active in socio-political domains, a fact that bears significantly on their creativity.
