The Gothic Sublime
The Gothic Sublime (May 1994)
Vijay Mishra - Author

This book reads the Gothic corpus with a thoroughly postmodern critical apparatus, pointing out that the Gothic Sublime anticipates our own doomed desire to pass beyond the hyperreal. A highly sophisticated theoretical reading of key texts of the Gothic, this book allows the reader to re-live the Gothic, not simply as a nostalgic relic or a pre-romantic aberration, but as a living presence that has strong resonances with the postmodern condition....(Read More)
 
 
Heidegger's Ways
Heidegger's Ways (February 1994)
Hans-Georg Gadamer - Author
John W. Stanley - Translator
Dennis J. Schmidt - Introduction

"The volume brings together interpretations of Heidegger's thought by a sympathetic follower recognized as one of today's greatest living philosophers. Some of the fifteen essays, written over a period of about 25 years, look back to Gadamer's early days as a student under Heidegger. These are not abstruse musings over points of interest only to eidegger specialists, but are engaging accounts of what Heidegger was up to, where he was coming from, ...(Read More)
 
 
Literature and Philosophy in Dialogue
Literature and Philosophy in Dialogue (December 1993)
Essays in German Literary Theory
Hans-Georg Gadamer - Author
Robert H. Paslick - Translation and introduction by

Hans-Georg Gadamer, the major proponent of philosophical hermeneutics, reveals himself here as a highly sensitive reader and critic of the German literary tradition. This is not the work of a specialist as narrowly defined in the typical literary study. Although he is a master of the techniques of criticism, Gadamer always sees the study of literature as a fundamentally human activity where human beings, generation after generation, pose their quest...(Read More)
 
 
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge (November 1993)
Don Byrd - Author

"Don Byrd's book presents postmodernism as a continuation of the metaphysical skeptical tradition, reaching its dead end with deconstruction. Byrd's alternative in literary studies is a return to poetry as a revitalization of language. The book is very learned, and written with verve and vigor." -- Mihai I. Spariosu, The University of Georgia

"This is an important, provocative book. At a time when poetics--especially that of the dif...(Read More)
 
 
Critifiction
Critifiction (November 1993)
Postmodern Essays
Raymond Federman - Author

"I like the way this book makes available critical reflections on postmodern or 'experimental' literature from the perspective of one of its central practitioners in the West today. We hear Federman's voice speaking from both inside and outside the scholarly and pedagogical discourse on postmodernism--a discourse to which he brings the intensity, engagement, vitality of the fiction writer for whom the 'fate' of the postmodern novel is not merely an...(Read More)
 
 
Manners of Interpretation
Manners of Interpretation (August 1993)
The Ends of Argument in Literary Studies
Miguel Tamen - Author

"The literary and language theoreticians whom Tamen analyzes, together with the categories he devises in which to contain his discussion of hermeneutics, philology and how each attempts to limit its own potentiality for disagreement with its premises and methods, are all very apt and important to the current debates over literary theory. Over all, Tamen's familiarity with his field, with the original languages of the texts he uses, and his sheer cr...(Read More)
 
 
Psyche and Text
Psyche and Text (August 1993)
The Sublime and the Grandiose in Literature, Psychopathology, and Culture
Henry Sussman - Author

Sussman here explores the relevance and value of object-relations theory to literature and literary studies. His study of character treats literature as a medium in which important relationships to conceptualized others--artifacts, mentors, activities, and schools of thought--are being worked through. Although rooted in the psychoanalytical model, this book is ultimately a study of character and of the conditions of subjectivity and intellectual w...(Read More)
 
 
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 (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)
 
 
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)
