The Restorationist: Text One
The Restorationist: Text One (August 1993)
A Collaborative Fiction by Jael B. Juba
Joyce Elbrecht - Author
Lydia Fakundiny - Author

This is an American novel of formed chaos playfully enacting the centrality of language in late twentieth-century art and life through the voices of two women steeped in Western traditions, one telling the story of her restoration of an ante-bellum house on the Florida Gulf Coast, the other faithfully recording it but running culturally wild in the process.

In both literal and extended senses, The Restorationist is a mystery, with atte...(Read More)

Reflections on Latin American Jewish Writing
Robert DiAntonio - 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.

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)
 
 
Emily Dickinson, Woman of Letters
Emily Dickinson, Woman of Letters (July 1993)
Poems and Centos From Lines in Emily Dickinson's Letters
Lewis Turco - Author

"The book insists that we reintegrate our experience of poetry and this poet, Emily Dickinson. The fusion of art--superb original poetry--with deeply informed criticism is the book's outstanding characteristic. It is beautifully written by all hands." -- H. R. Coursen, Bowdoin College

Buried in Emily Dickinson's letters are many lines that are stunningly beautiful, as beautiful as any to be found in her poems. Lewis Turco has taken some of...(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)

They have become a dominating force in Chinese literature today, although they presently reside outside their homeland.

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)
 
 
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment (July 1993)
The Shadow of the Work of Art from Kant to Phenomenology
Jacques Taminiaux - Author
Michael Gendre - Editor/translator

"Jacques Taminiaux has demonstrated his preeminence as a historian and philosopher of post-Kantian continental philosophy. In this book, he explicates the emergence of aesthetic judgment in Kant's thought, traces the theoretical provocation it provided for accounts in its wake in German Idealism, and finally, shows the effect of these considerations on developments in more recent accounts. To this end Taminiaux provides important readings of Schil...(Read More)
