An Introduction to International Varieties of English

Bauer, Laurie
Bog

185 DKK
Ikke på lager
Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

This book looks at native speaker varieties of English, considering how and why they differ in terms of their pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and spelling. It shows how the major national varieties of English have developed, why similar causes have given rise to different effects in different parts of the world, and how the same problems of description arise in relation to all "colonial" Englishes. As an introductory text, it presupposes a minimum of previous knowledge, focusing on common traits rather than on individual varieties.
It is informed by research on dialect mixing and includes exercises within each chapter and further reading references.

Contemporary Irish Literature Transforming Tradition

Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

This text provides a thorough initiation into the works of a broad selection of living Irish writers. The collection treats the writings of a range of individuals, from such well established artists as Seamus Heaney and Brian Friel, to those whose reputations demand to be extended beyond their Irish audience. With a comprehensive introduction which provides a continuum from the Celtic Twilight to the present day, and with literary and historical chronologies and maps, the book is formatted with chapters on poetry, prose, drama, and autobiography.
The careers of major figures are examined in some detail, and a preliminary acquaintance is provided for writers who may be new to non-Irish readers. Of particular interest are the chapters on the contemporary contribution to literature from the troubled province of Northern Ireland, the work of the newly canonical female writers, and the recent innovative work appearing on the Irish stage.

Haruki Murakami and the Music of Words

Rubin, Jay
Bog

Miscellanous Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

As a young man, Haruki Murakami played records and mixed drinks at his Tokyo Jazz club, Peter Cat, then wrote at the kitchen table until the sun came up. He loves music of all kinds - jazz, classical, folk, rock - and has more than six thousand records at home. And when he writes, his words have a music all their own, much of it learned from jazz. Jay Rubin, a self-confessed fan, has written a book for other fans who want to know more about this reclusive writer. He reveals the autobiographical elements in Murakami's fiction, and explains how he developed a distinctive new style in Japanese writing. In tracing Murakami's career, he uses interviews he conducted with the author between 1993 and 2001, and draws on insights and observations gathered from over ten years of collaborating with Murakami on translations of his works.

New Essays on Wise Blood

Kreyling, Michael (ed. by)
Bog

På lager
Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

TILBUD
These new critical essays on Wise Blood, Flannery O'Connor's explosive first novel, not only question our understanding of the 'Southern Gothic,' but launch a new inquiry into the nature and history of O'Connor's critical reputation. Perceived as a 'classic' American writer despite the double setbacks of being a woman and a twentieth-century author, O'Connor continues to speak with striking clarity and disturbing vision to successive generations. Michael Kreyling's introduction explores the nature and history of O'Connor's literary reputation using quotations from her letters, works, and from critical reviews and articles covering the history of her presence in the canon.
Robert Brinkmeyer Jr, who has written on O'Connor from a more or less traditional theological view in the past, writes a re-evaluative essay from that point of view. Patricia Yaeger's feminist/psychoanalytical essay explores the construction of the narrative voice in Wise Blood. James Mellard links O'Connor and Lacan, exploring territory that O'Connor herself found dangerous and irresistible: psychology and psychoanalysis.Jon Lance Bacon places O'Connor in the milieu of her times, American popular culture of the 1950s.

Sister's Choice - Tradition and Change in American Women's Writing

Showalter, Elaine

Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

TILBUD
This study argues that post-colonial as well as feminist literary theory can help us understand the hybrid, intertextual, and changing forms of American women's writing, and the way that women's culture intersects with other cultural forms. Are American women writers from different eras and different backgrounds connected by common threads in a coherent tradition? How have the relationships between women's rights, women's rites, and women's writing figured in the history of literature by women in the United States? Drawing on a wide range of writers from Margaret Fuller to Alice Walker, Elaine Showalter argues that post-colonial as well as feminist literary theory can help us understand the hybrid, intertextual, and changing forms of American women's writing, and the way that 'women's culture' intersects with other cultural forms. Showalter looks closely at three American classics - Little Women, The Awakening, and The House of Mirth - and traces the transformations in such major themes, images, and genres of American women's writing as the American Miranda, the Female Gothic, and the patchwork quilt. Ending with a moving description of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, she shows how the women's tradition is a literary quilt that offers a new map of a changing America.

Suffocating Mothers - Fantasies of Maternal Origin in Shakespeare's Plays, Hamlet to the Tempest

Adelman, Janet
Bog

160 DKK
På lager
Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

Reading each of Shakespeare's plays from Hamlet to The Tempest , Janet Adelman brilliantly illuminates Shakespeare's negotiations with mothers, present and absent - not only Gertrude, Volumnia, and Hermione, but also Lady Macbeth, Lear's daughters, and the exiled witch Sycorax. In her original and highly charged account, Adelman traces the genesis of Shakespearean tragedy and romance to a psychologized version of the Fall, in which original sin is literally the sin of origin, inherited from the maternal body that brings death into the world. In Adelman's account, Shakepseare's confrontation with maternal power has devastating consequences both for masculine selfhood and for the female characters in whom that power is invested, the suffocating mothers who must themsleves be suffocated.

Theory & Practice of Writing

På lager
Literature & Linguistics Engelsk

TILBUD
This book undertakes a general framework within which to consider the complex nature of the writing task in English, both as a first, and as a second language. The volume explores varieties of writing, different purposes for learning to write extended text, and cross-cultural variation among second-language writers. The volume overviews textlinguistic research, explores process approaches to writing, discusses writing for professional purposes, and contrastive rhetoric.
It proposes a model for text construction as well as a framework for a more general theory of writing. Later chapters, organised around seventy-five themes for writing instruction are devoted to the teaching of writing at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Writing assessment and other means for responding to writing are also discussed.
William Grabe and Robert Kaplan summarise various theoretical strands that have been recently explored by applied linguists and other writing researchers, and draw these strands together into a coherent overview of the nature of written text. Finally they suggest methods for the teaching of writing consistent with the nature, processes and social context of writing.
