Recreating the World/Word (July 1992)
The Mythic Mode as Symbolic Discourse
Lynda D. McNeil - Author

This book combines interdisciplinary and comparatist approaches (anthropology, philosophy, psychology, and language) in the investigation of the mythic mode of thought and language in the post-Symbolist poets Arthur Rimbaud, Georg Trakl, Hart Crane, and Charles Olson. Part One covers the philosophical tradition from Gottfried Herder to Ernst Cassirer. Part Two includes close analytical readings of individual poems by these authors as they enact th...(Read More)
 
 
The Step Not Beyond
The Step Not Beyond (July 1992)
Maurice Blanchot - Author
Lycette Nelson - Translator

This book is a translation of Maurice Blanchot's work that is of major importance to late 20th-century literature and philosophy studies. Using the fragmentary form, Blanchot challenges the boundaries between the literary and the philosophical. With the obsessive rigor that has always marked his writing, Blanchot returns to the themes that have haunted his work since the beginning: writing, death, transgression, the neuter, but here the figures a...(Read More)

A Reading of Lacan
Jean-Luc Nancy - Author
Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe - Author
François Raffoul - Translator
David Pettigrew - Translator

"I advise you to read a book called The Title of the Letter. It is with the greatest satisfaction that I have read it. I could not encourage its distribution enough. I can say, in a way, if it is a question of reading, that I have never been read so well..." --Jacques Lacan

This book is a close reading of Jacques Lacan's seminal essay, "The Agency of the Letter in the Unconscious or Reason Since Freud, " selected for t...(Read More)
 
 
The Stuff of Literature
The Stuff of Literature (April 1992)
Physical Aspects of Texts and Their Relation to Literary Meaning
E. A. Levenston - Author

The total meaning of a work of literature derives not only from what the words mean, but from what the text looks like. This stuff of literature, graphic substance or the physical raw material, is explored here in Levenston's comprehensive survey.

Levenston discusses the main literary genres of poetry, drama, and fiction, and the extent to which they may be said to exist primarily in written or spoken form, or both. He ...(Read More)
 
 
Old Tales and New Truths
Old Tales and New Truths (February 1992)
Charting the Bright-Shadow World
James Roy King - Author

"I like the basic thesis--that traditional narratives can be used, rhetorically, by their tellers as conceptual blockbreakers rather than as reinforcers of what is. This point is very well, even enchantingly, made. King adds a new dimension and sophistication to the study of folk narratives cross culturally. -- Sabra J. Webber, The Ohio State University.

This guidebook to the Bright-Shadow World develops three closely related issues. The f...(Read More)
 
 
Reading Old Friends
Reading Old Friends (February 1992)
Essays, Reviews, and Poems on Poetics 1975-1990
John Matthias - Author

"John Matthias is one of the leading poets in the USA at the moment. He is also an accomplished critic. These pieces are written in a congenial and civilized style. They are not 'criticism' in the current sense of tedious argument and defended theory. John writes for an audience that reads. Even so, there is a great deal of good criticism here, and the book will be reviewed as a critical tour de force. This is a lively book, an intelligent one...(Read More)
 
 
The Politics of Voice
The Politics of Voice (February 1992)
Liberalism and Social Criticism from Franklin to Kingston
Malini Johar Schueller - Author

"I am very impressed by Schueller's identification and analysis of the generic identity of these disparate texts as well as by her deft handling of the complex issues of the politics within and among them. I think that in itself constitutes a significant contribution to American literary scholarship. The author has done an excellent job of laying out the formal and rhetorical strategies common among these books that she labels as personal-politica...(Read More)

In the Shadow of Olympus
In the Shadow of Olympus (February 1992)
German Women Writers Around 1800
Katherine R. Goodman - Editor
Edith Waldstein - Editor

"This is a detailed and competent account of German women writers around 1800, the first of this kind in English; it offers a wealth of information about the cultural background and conditions and good analyses of selected literary works. It is written in a clear style and is often vivid and interesting; it discusses in a sober, critical form a good number of issues of feminist scholarship.

"The classical period of German lite...(Read More)

Explorations of European Narrative
