Popular Film and American Culture 1990-1992
Joseph Natoli - Author

This book is about the way that popular film brings to a "sayable" level that which haunts us in the media headlines.
"This book is so very topical--in the best of all possible senses. It uses contemporary films to comment upon broader social issues: violence, homophobia, sexual abuse, television, capitalism, class, marriage, ecology, democracy, greed, subcultures, and the list could go on. The fears of America--the hauntings by the Ro...(Read More)

To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne
To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne (December 1994)
Claudia Crawford - Author

This book explores the possibility that Friedrich Nietzsche simulated his madness as a form of 'voluntary death,' and thus that his madness functioned as the symbolic culmination of his philosophy.

The book weaves together scholarly, mytho-poetic, literary critical, biographical, and dramatic genres not only to explore specifics of Nietzsche's 'madness,' but to question the 'reason/madness' o...(Read More)

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 Necessary Angel
The Necessary Angel (November 1994)
Massimo Cacciari - Author
Miguel E. Vatter - Translator

"Cacciari tells a story. It is the story of the history of angels in Judaic, Islamic, and Christian traditions; and it continues as an amplification of the metaphor of angels in such writers as Dante, Rilke, Kafka, Benjamin, Klee, and Marc in order to speak about the phenomenology of language. Cacciari talks about angels in order to describe the contradictory nature of linguistic signs (absolute freedom and absolute determination). The greatest i...(Read More)

Being English
Being English (October 1994)
Narratives, Idioms, and Performances of National Identity from Coleridge to Trollope
Julian Wolfreys - Author

"Julian Wolfrey's Being English throws together Derrida and Margaret Thatcher, Marx and Matthew Arnold, Wordsworth and Coleridge and Eliot and Gaskell and Trollope and more Derrida and Wilkie Collins into a brilliant and delicious study of the making of national identity. Allowing the past to read the present, Wolfreys produces a lucid, frightening, and often hilarious account of the development not only of 'Englishness,' but of a host of sup...(Read More)
 
 
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)
 
 
Magic, Rhetoric, and Literacy
Magic, Rhetoric, and Literacy (August 1994)
An Eccentric History of the Composing Imagination
William A. Covino - Author

"William Covino has written a powerful and deeply engaging book. I am quite taken by his ability to make a subject like magic--a topic susceptible to either an unscholarly 'light' treatment or to an unfortunate academic dismissal--accessible to a broad audience and viable to scholars. I also especially admire the range of his concerns and the thoroughness with which he grounds his discussion in theory and history." -- George Kalamaras, Indiana Unive...(Read More)
