The Dream and the Text
The Dream and the Text (July 1993)
Essays on Literature and Language
Carol Schreier Rupprecht - Editor

"The book offers wonderful and important commentary about the interface between dreams and texts of various sorts, about how they can inform each other, and about mutual shaping of dreams and culture." -- Johanna M. King, California State University, Chico

This book partakes of a long tradition of dream interpretation, but, at the same time, is unique in its cross-cultural and interdisciplinary methods and in its mix of theoretical and analyt...(Read More)
 
 
Gender and Sexuality in Twentieth-Century Chinese Literature and Society
Gender and Sexuality in Twentieth-Century Chinese Literature and Society (June 1993)
Tonglin Lu - Editor

"Only women and inferior men are difficult to deal with." -- Confucius

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."

Saints and Revolutionaries
Saints and Revolutionaries (February 1993)
The Ascetic Hero in Russian Fiction
Marcia A. Morris - Author

"It takes a hitherto neglected pattern in Russian literature, and shows how it informs and shapes some of the more important works of medieval Russian literature, and of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We have all been aware that these works are a bit strange, and now the author has shown us why this is so. The link between the medieval and the modern--fascinating in itself--is argued clearly and convincingly." -- Robert A. Maguire, Columb...(Read More)
 
 
Virginal Sexuality and Textuality in Victorian Literature
Virginal Sexuality and Textuality in Victorian Literature (January 1993)
Lloyd Davis - Editor

This book examines the figure of the virgin, a symbol central to many aspects of society and sexuality in nineteenth-century England, and its effects on the Victorian literary imagination. Studying the virgin as a social, sexual, and literary phenomenon, the volume contributes to current critical accounts of the relations among the body and language, gender, and discourse.

These essays explore the ways in which virginity is ...(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)
 
 
Speaking the Unspeakable
Speaking the Unspeakable (December 1992)
A Poetics of Obscenity
Peter Michelson - Author

"This book goes far beyond the limited implications of the free-speech arguments typically used in support of pornography and erotica. It convincingly argues for the profound, even if sometimes demonic, values of pornography and erotica in the context of literary studies, cultural practices, and philosophical discourse. It is well argued and well researched, avoiding both the polemical excesses and the technical jargon that mar so much current di...(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)
 
 
The Arimaspian Eye
The Arimaspian Eye (October 1992)
David L. Hall - Author

"I want to offer my most favorable impression of Hall's The Arimaspian Eye. I am ordinarily not a reader of fiction, that is ordinary fiction, and my tastes go distinctly in the direction of the more unusual forms. Hall's novel is one I took to immediately--to the point that instead of reading it over many short periods, I set aside everything else and read it to the finish.

"What attracts me, outside the sheer quality of the writing...(Read More)
 
 
The Art of John Gardner
The Art of John Gardner (October 1992)
Instruction and Exploration
Per Winther - Author

"There is a great deal to like about this work. First, it takes an honest and forthright stance in regard to On Moral Fiction. Second, Winther provides the philosophical background--Darwin, Whitehead, Collingwood, Blanshard, and Croce--to help us see the argument Gardner was trying to develop in On Moral Fiction. Third, Winther, more than any other scholar, has investigated Gardner's other critical and scholarly writings on medieval...(Read More)
 
 
Body/Text in Julia Kristeva
Body/Text in Julia Kristeva (September 1992)
Religion, Women, and Psychoanalysis
David Crownfield - Editor

Julia Kristeva works at a crucial intersection of contemporary disciplines: psychoanalysis, linguistics, semiotics, literary criticism, feminism, postmodern philosophy, and religious studies. This volume examines this rich body of work and the ways in which its interdisciplinary style gives insight into problems in understanding religion. Special attention is given to two related themes: the understanding of woman in relation to religion and the...(Read More)
