📒Space In America ✍ Klaus Benesch
✏Space in America Book Summary : America's sense of space has always been tied to what Hayden White called the narrativization of real events. If the awe-inspiring manifestations of nature in America (Niagara Falls, Virginia's Natural Bridge, the Grand Canyon, etc.) were often used as a foil for projecting utopian visions and idealizations of the nation's exceptional place among the nations of the world, the rapid technological progress and its concomitant appropriation of natural spaces served equally well, as David Nye argues, to promote the dominant cultural idiom of exploration and conquest. From the beginning, American attitudes towards space were thus utterly contradictory if not paradoxical; a paradox that scholars tried to capture in such hybrid concepts as the middle landscape (Leo Marx), an engineered New Earth (Cecelia Tichi), or the technological sublime (David Nye). Not only was America's concept of space paradoxical, it has always also been a contested terrain, a site of continuous social and cultural conflict. Many foundational issues in American history (the dislocation of Native and African Americans, the geo-political implications of nation-building, immigration and transmigration, the increasing division and clustering of contemporary American society, etc.) involve differing ideals and notions of space. Quite literally, space and its various ideological appropriations formed the arena where America's search for identity (national, political, cultural) has been staged. If American democracy, as Frederick Jackson Turner claimed, is born of free land, then its history may well be defined as the history of the fierce struggles to gain and maintain power over both the geographical, social and political spaces of America and its concomitant narratives. The number and range of topics, interests, and critical approaches of the essays gathered here open up exciting new avenues of inquiry into the tangled, contentious relations of space in America. Topics include: Theories of Space - Landscape / Nature - Technoscape / Architecture / Urban Utopia - Literature - Performance / Film / Visual Arts.

📒What Is World Literature ✍ David Damrosch
✏What Is World Literature Book Summary : World literature was long defined in North America as an established canon of European masterpieces, but an emerging global perspective has challenged both this European focus and the very category of "the masterpiece." The first book to look broadly at the contemporary scope and purposes of world literature, What Is World Literature? probes the uses and abuses of world literature in a rapidly changing world. In case studies ranging from the Sumerians to the Aztecs and from medieval mysticism to postmodern metafiction, David Damrosch looks at the ways works change as they move from national to global contexts. Presenting world literature not as a canon of texts but as a mode of circulation and of reading, Damrosch argues that world literature is work that gains in translation. When it is effectively presented, a work of world literature moves into an elliptical space created between the source and receiving cultures, shaped by both but circumscribed by neither alone. Established classics and new discoveries alike participate in this mode of circulation, but they can be seriously mishandled in the process. From the rediscovered Epic of Gilgamesh in the nineteenth century to Rigoberta Menchú's writing today, foreign works have often been distorted by the immediate needs of their own editors and translators. Eloquently written, argued largely by example, and replete with insightful close readings, this book is both an essay in definition and a series of cautionary tales.
📒Poetic Effect And Cultural Discourses ✍ Hermann Josef Schnackertz
✏POEtic Effect and Cultural Discourses Book Summary : This collection of essays by a group of scholars from Germany, the United States, Russia and the Czech Republic focuses on the relations of E.A. Poe's work to various forms of cultural discourse as well as on its intercultural and intermedial repercussions. One of the central concerns of this conference volume is the question of how a cultural reading of Poe's literary fictions can account for their character as 'tales of effect'. The scope of investigation ranges from the cultural significance of animal representations and the aesthetic consequences of Poe's interest in mesmerism and scientific cosmologies to the uncovering of archeological strata in The Gold Bug, the exploration of temperance rhetoric in The Black Cat, and the engagement of the public-private dichotomy in The Pit and the Pendulum. Furthermore, the role of Beauty in Poe's aesthetic and the process of poetological self-construction are discussed, as well as the illustrations for the poem To Helen and, finally, the influence of Poe's writings on Russian symbolism. Bisherige Forschungsgebiete des Autors: Science and literature; text and image; literary theory.
