Remaining in Light
Remaining in Light (August 1993)
Ant Meditations on a Painting By Edward Hopper
John Taggart - Author

This is the first sustained, critical examination of the work of Edward Hopper, a major twentieth-century American painter. It is a sequence of meditations on his painting "A Woman in the Sun." Each meditation, informed by Derrida's conception of the supplement, is about both the painting and about the nature of the reading process.

"It is a compelling investigation of a 'problem' largely neglected by contemporary poets, critics, and theori...(Read More)
 
 
A Postmodern Reader
A Postmodern Reader (July 1993)
Joseph Natoli - Editor
Linda Hutcheon - Editor

Those who recognize that the concept of postmodernism is with us to stay and who meet the necessary responsibility of bringing it to our students will welcome this book. It is ample in its offerings; and from the point of view of the potential user, the convenience and utility of the collection are prime virtues.

"The mix is refreshing. The selections are both varied and representative; they touch on essential aspects of the topic and exhau...(Read More)
 
 
Anxious Power
Anxious Power (July 1993)
Reading, Writing, and Ambivalence in Narrative by Women
Carol J. Singley - Editor
Susan Elizabeth Sweeney - Editor

This book explains the conflicting feelings of anxiety and empowerment that women, historically excluded from masculine discourse, feel when they read and write, and it analyzes narrative strategies that reveal this ambivalence.

Anxious Power draws upon feminist literary theory, narrative theory, and reader-response criticism to define women's ambivalence toward language. It is the first collection to address issues of ambivalence in ...(Read More)
 
 
Gaps in Nature
Gaps in Nature (July 1993)
Literary Interpretation and the Modular Mind
Ellen Spolsky - Author

"Cognitive Science is arguably the most important intellectual development of the post World War II period. Literary theory, however, has failed almost completely to cope with this fundamental change in the intellectual climate. Spolsky's book is a pioneering effort in this regard. The argument is adventuresome and fresh. Unlike so much of the work which is now being published, it is not a rehash of a re-hash, etc. This is news.

Mysteries of Attention
Mysteries of Attention (July 1993)
James S. Hans - Author

"The Mysteries of Attention casts a complex argument in very readable terms. Its effort to situate literature in the midst of basic human concerns provides a very attractive alternative to several disabling contemporary habits of critical thought."-- Michael Anania, author of In Plain Sight: Obsessions, Morals and Domestic Laughter

"This book is Hans at his best. His work is evolving into a coherent oeuvre, even an ars poetic...(Read More)
 
 
Of the Sublime: Presence in Question
Of the Sublime: Presence in Question (July 1993)
Essays by Jean-Francois Courtine, Michel Deguy, Eliane Escoubas, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Louis Marin, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacob Rogozinski
Jeffrey S. Librett - Translator

"With its ruined castles and uncanny ghosts, the sublime has always been the secret truth of deconstruction, and indeed of post-structuralism in general. Hence it comes that these essays were first collected under the auspices of a series called 'L'Extreme contemporain.' Combining work by some of France's leading philosophers and by some of their most gifted students, it offers unique insights into the latest thinking about Schelling, Hegel, Nietz...(Read More)

Two thousand years after Confucius, the contributors to this book ask if Chinese women have succeeded in changing their status as the equivalent of "inferior men." Gender and Sexuality in Twentieth-Century Chinese Literature and Society approaches the role of women in social change through analyzing literature and culture during the May Fourth and th...(Read More)
 
 
Imagination and Chance
Imagination and Chance (January 1993)
The Difference Between the Thought of Ricoeur and Derrida
Leonard Lawlor - Author

"It is a patient and well organized exploration of the nexus between hermeneutics and deconstruction as embodied in the works of Ricoeur and Derrida. It should serve as a guide to the differences between the two projects. This is a very topical subject and should be of wide interest." -- Richard E. Palmer, MacMurray College

"This is one of the best--most accurate and precise--texts on Derrida's work in particular that I have seen. The anal...(Read More)
 
 
Gothic (Re)Visions
Gothic (Re)Visions (December 1992)
Writing Women as Readers
Susan Wolstenholme - Author

Gothic fiction usually has been perceived as the special province of women, an attraction often attributed to a thematics of woman-identified issues such as female sexuality, marriage, and childbirth. But why these issues? What is specifically "female" about "Gothic?" This book argues that Gothic modes provide women who write with special means to negotiate their way through their double status as women and as writers, and to subvert the power re...(Read More)
 
 
Mots D'Ordre
Mots D'Ordre (October 1992)
Disorder in Literary Worlds
Joseph Natoli - Author

"Here is a text that energetically breaks out of the predictable positions and quarrels of present-day academe. It is exciting, diverse, has enormous intellectual vitality, and moves easily between science, literature, and philosophy. With Turner, with Serres, and a few others, Natoli outlines a comparatism of the future.

"In my opinion Natoli deals with the most important topic I can think of: the relationship between order and disorder ...(Read More)
