Heterotopia in Angela Carter’s Fiction: Worlds in Collision Book
  • Author : ,
  • Publisher : Anchor Academic Publishing (aap_verlag)
  • Release Date : 2014-02-01
  • Category: Literary Collections
  • Pages : 328
  • ISBN Code: 395489677X

Summary: Angela Carter’s work is a collage of discourses and genres. The challenge of finding a critical framework, complex and accurate enough to classify her work, has remained. The spectacular and the pragmatic threads of her texts, framed by extreme seriousness and witty humour are unravelled with the help of a different metaphor, denoting enigmatic spaces, conterdiscourses, borders of otherness – heterotopia. Five novels out of nine, five short stories out of thirty-five, as well as Carter’s two film adaptations are filtered through a term extricated from its medical and geographical roots, which emphasizes the ambiguity, as well as the dialogic interaction of Angela Carter’s often discordant discourses that have kept her at the top of the literary canon.

Angela Carter and Surrealism Book by Anna Watz

Angela Carter and Surrealism Book
  • Author : Anna Watz
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2016-07-15
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 202
  • ISBN Code: 113496854X

Summary: In 1972, Angela Carter translated Xavière Gauthier’s ground-breaking feminist critique of the surrealist movement, Surréalisme et sexualité (1971). Although the translation was never published, the project at once confirmed and consolidated Carter’s previous interest in surrealism, representation, gender and desire and aided her formulation of a new surrealist-feminist aesthetic. Carter’s sustained engagement with surrealist aesthetics and politics as well as surrealist scholarship aptly demonstrates what is at stake for feminism at the intersection of avant-garde aesthetics and the representation of women and female desire. Drawing on previously unexplored archival material, such as typescripts, journals, and letters, Anna Watz’s study is the first to trace the full extent to which Carter’s writing was influenced by the surrealist movement and its critical heritage. Watz’s book is an important contribution to scholarship on Angela Carter as well as to contemporary feminist debates on surrealism, and will appeal to scholars across the fields of contemporary British fiction, feminism, and literary and visual surrealism.

Summary: Bringing together leading international scholars of contemporary fiction and modern women writers, this book provides authoritative new critical readings of Angela Carter's work from a variety of innovative theoretical and disciplinary approaches. Angela Carter: New Critical Readings both evaluates Carter's legacy as feminist provocateur and postmodern stylist, and broaches new ground in considering Carter as, variously, a poet and a 'naturalist'. Including coverage of Carter's earliest writings and her journalism as well as her more widely studied novels, short stories and dramatic works, the book covers such topics as rescripting the canon, surrealism, and Carter's poetics.

The Transatlantic Gothic Novel and the Law, 1790–1860 Book by Bridget M. Marshall

The Transatlantic Gothic Novel and the Law, 1790–1860 Book
  • Author : Bridget M. Marshall
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2016-02-17
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 214
  • ISBN Code: 1317013719

Summary: Tracing the use of legal themes in the gothic novel, Bridget M. Marshall shows these devices reflect an outpouring of anxiety about the nature of justice. On both sides of the Atlantic, novelists like William Godwin, Mary Shelley, Charles Brockden Brown, and Hannah Crafts question the foundations of the Anglo-American justice system through their portrayals of criminal and judicial procedures and their use of found documents and legal forms as key plot devices. As gothic villains, from Walpole's Manfred to Godwin's Tyrrell to Stoker's Dracula, manipulate the law and legal system to expand their power, readers are confronted with a legal system that is not merely ineffective at stopping villains but actually enables them to inflict ever greater harm on their victims. By invoking actual laws like the Black Act in England or the Fugitive Slave Act in America, gothic novels connect the fantastic horrors that constitute their primary appeal with much more shocking examples of terror and injustice. Finally, the gothic novel's preoccupation with injustice is just one element of many that connects the genre to slave narratives and to the horrors of American slavery.

Post-Millennial Gothic Book by Catherine Spooner

Post-Millennial Gothic Book
  • Author : Catherine Spooner
  • Publisher : Bloomsbury Publishing
  • Release Date : 2017-02-23
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 256
  • ISBN Code: 1441160140

Summary: Surveying the widespread appropriations of the Gothic in contemporary literature and culture, Post-Millennial Gothic shows contemporary Gothic is often romantic, funny and celebratory. Reading a wide range of popular texts, from Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series through Tim Burton's Gothic film adaptations of Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, to the appearance of Gothic in fashion, advertising and television, Catherine Spooner argues that conventional academic and media accounts of Gothic culture have overlooked this celebratory strain of 'Happy Gothic'. Identifying a shift in subcultural sensibilities following media coverage of the Columbine shootings, Spooner suggests that changing perceptions of Goth subculture have shaped the development of 21st-century Gothic. Reading these contemporary trends back into their sources, Spooner also explores how they serve to highlight previously neglected strands of comedy and romance in earlier Gothic literature.

Memory, Imagination, Justice Book by David Gurnham

Memory, Imagination, Justice Book
  • Author : David Gurnham
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2016-04-22
  • Category: Law
  • Pages : 226
  • ISBN Code: 131709753X

Summary: Through the creative use of literary analysis, Memory, Imagination, Justice provides a critical and highly original discussion of contemporary topics in criminal law and bioethics. Author David Gurnham uses popular and classical texts, by authors including Shakespeare, Dickens, Euripides, Kafka, the Brothers Grimm, Huxley and Margaret Atwood to shed fresh light on such controversial legal and ethical issues as passionate homicide, life sentences, child pornography and genetic enhancement. Gurnham’s overarching theme is the role of memory and imagination in shaping legal and ethical attitudes. Along this line, this book examines the ways in which past wrongs are remembered and may be forcefully responded to, both by the criminal justice system itself and also by individuals responding to what they regard as gross insults, threats or personal violations. The volume further discusses the role of imagination as a creative force behind legal reform, in terms of the definition of criminal behaviour and the possible future development of the law. These ideas provide a useful and highly original perspective on contemporary issues of crime and society as they resonate both in legal and literary discussion.

Summary: Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Can a bird sing only the song it knows or can it learn a new song?" Dieses Zitat aus Angela Carters Kurzgeschichte "The Lady of the House of Love" (veröffentlicht 1979 in ihrer Kurzgeschichten-Sammlung The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories) spiegelt die zentrale Frage eines ganzen Genres, der Gothic novel, wider: Ist das Individuum das Produkt der Gesellschaft, deren Denksystemen es sich zu unterwerfen hat, oder kann es sich von der ihm zugedachten Rolle lösen und eine eigene Weltsicht entwickeln? In Carters postmodernem Werk finden sich neben diesem Gedanken auch zahlreiche andere Elemente sowohl der Gothic novel als auch des Märchens. Die ungewöhnliche Darstellung eines postmodernistischen Dornröschens im Gewand einer Gräfin Dracula bietet erste Hinweise darauf, dass eine Dekonstruktion versteinerter Genre- und Geschlechtsvorstellungen vorgenommen werden soll, deren Vorgehen und Funktion näher zu betrachten sein wird. Carter steht somit in der Tradition des französischen dekonstruktivistischen Feminismus, wie er in den Werken von Hélène Cixous, Luce Irigaray und Julia Kristeva zum Ausdruck kommt.
