Red Square, Black Square
Red Square, Black Square (November 1994)
Organon for Revolutionary Imagination
Vladislav Todorov - Author

This book builds a new vision of the development of Russian revolutionary culture, bringing together fiction, criticism, utopian projects, manifestos, performance and film theory, religious philosophy, and the imaginary space of communism centered around the Mummy of Lenin.

Revolution and modernization are two main issues of the book. The author argues that in Modernism the work of art was conceived as a miniature of the world to come; thus,...(Read More)
 
 
The Exotic
The Exotic (September 1994)
A Decadent Quest
Dorothy M. Figueira - Author

"The Exotic covers an extraordinary range of materials as it traces the reception of Sanskrit studies in the West and issues of ideology implied in that reception. It focuses chiefly on nineteenth-century German, French, and English scholarship, literature, and philosophy, but it also addressses twentieth-century associations between Indo-Germanism and National Socialism and contemporary views on ethnocentrism and political correctness.

The Play of the Self
The Play of the Self (September 1994)
Ronald Bogue - Editor
Mihai I. Spariosu - Editor

“The book covers extraordinary ground in literature, the arts, philosophy, and even the social sciences. The concern about the issue of self and the representations of self brings far-reaching ideas together in the most surprising and mutually illuminating ways. Poststructuralist and postmodernist critiques of self-identity have made the topic controversial and broadly relevant to all the fields represented. Extreme statements abound on both s...(Read More)
 
 
Gods of Play
Gods of Play (August 1994)
Baroque Festive Performances as Rhetorical Discourse
Kristiaan Aercke - Author

"While most scholars who have worked on the relationship of art and power in the Renaissance and Baroque ages have limited their focus to one national tradition, or at best to England, France, and Italy, Aercke brings the baroque spectacle performance to life as a truly pan-European phenomenon, as interesting for its common characteristics as for its particular formulation in particular courtly settings. The depth and breadth of his research are mo...(Read More)
 
 
Chaosmos
Chaosmos (July 1994)
Literature, Science, and Theory
Philip Kuberski - Author

"Kuberski has a talent for boldly synthesizing large currents of contemporary thought and extrapolating equally bold conclusions. While some of his assertions will give pause to scholars with a more empirical bent, there are few pages in this book where the reader does not experience the shock of the new. The concerns addressed in this book, ranging from revisions in critical theory to alternate metaphysical foundations of a postmodern epistemolog...(Read More)
 
 
Home Is Somewhere Else
Home Is Somewhere Else (July 1994)
Autobiography in Two Voices
Desider Furst - Author
Lilian R. Furst - Author

Following the Nazi annexation of Austria in March of 1938, Desider Furst, his wife, and his daughter suddenly found themselves hunted outlaws, holders of a German passport branded with a red "J" for Jewish. They escaped from Vienna and eventually settled in England, where they spent the war years as "enemy aliens." In 1971 they emigrated once more, this time voluntarily, to the United States. Home is Somewhere Else is a dual-voice, autobio...(Read More)
 
 
Myth and Modernity
Myth and Modernity (July 1994)
Postcritical Reflections
Milton Scarborough - Author

"This book is an important voice in the current debate about the implications of pluralism, relativism, and nihilism for the culture and for the educational enterprise. But the fundamental contribution of the book is its hypothesis about how we think." -- William Elford Rogers, Furman University

This book surveys selected modern theories of myth from philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, and psychoanalysis to demonstrate a common com...(Read More)
 
 
The Meaning of Irony
The Meaning of Irony (July 1994)
A Psychoanalytic Investigation
Frank Stringfellow Jr. - Author

Genuinely interdisciplinary in approach, The Meaning of Irony brings together literary analysis and, from psychoanalysis, both theory and case studies. Its investigation ranges from everyday examples of verbal irony--conscious and unconscious--to the complex irony of literature.

This book provides the first full account of verbal irony from a psychoanalytic point of view. Stringfellow shows how the rhetorical tradition, by viewing the ...(Read More)
 
 
The Orphic Moment
The Orphic Moment (July 1994)
Shaman to Poet-Thinker in Plato, Nietzsche, and Mallarme
Robert McGahey - Author

"This is an extraordinary book on Orpheus, one that is willing to circumvent explanations and fixed positions. Itself it teaches us how to live and imagine Orphically on the invisible and impossibly thin line that separates and unites all opposites. Robert McGahey writes with authority, sculpting out a precise place and time that is the Orphic moment, and he also straddles the difficult but necessary ambiguity of historical time and poetic eternity....(Read More)
 
 
A Walking Fire
A Walking Fire (June 1994)
Valerie Miner - Author

"Here's a good big story of Cora's journey home across a continent and twenty years. Valerie Miner's gift is to make us see again that the issues we too often think of as political are really deeply personal. This is the mission of our best fiction. A Walking Fire is a worthy pilgrimage and a welcome book." --Ron Carlson, author, Plan B for the Middle Class

"I found this novel utterly engrossing. It is smoothly and powe...(Read More)
