Details zum Produkt: Old Myths – Modern Empires

This study gives substantial coverage and close critical attention to a wide range of Coetzee’s published writings, in the attempt to situate his œuvre within the framework of both postmodernist and postcolonial theory and criticism. In addition, it links the political and social aspects of Coetzee’s work, its South African provenance and its often oblique engagement with contemporary issues, with formal questions regarding structure, rhetoric and narrative strategies as tackled in his novels. By approaching Coetzee’s fiction from a variety of critical angles and taking into account both the transformations in the socio-political context of South Africa, and the recent changes in critical reception (exemplified by the Nobel Prize he was awarded in 2003) this book therefore offers a thorough assessment of the author’s œuvre.

Virtually American?
Virtually American?
This is a time seemingly without borders, an era of an unprecedented flow of goods, capital, and labor. It is a time, also, in which the very boundaries of our disciplines have fissured out, encompassing spaces well beyond the nation-state. This volume sets out to explore what this opening up of national borders may mean for the disciplines of both American and Canadian studies. At the same time, there may be a need for caution. The credo of a transnational American or Canadian studies may run the risk of glossing over the ways in which particularly after September 11, 2001, borders are being policed, and of losing sight of the specificities attached to citizenship rights or their absence. The denationalization of North American Studies may hence be a deeply ambivalent concept. It may be moored in realities which drive home the point that the nation state is far from obsolete; yet, it may also point at the way in which particularly in the area of minority studies, the transcending of national borders a8bcnd the forging of transnational alliances could not be more fruitful. Finally, the volume seeks to explore the meaning of "Americanness." At a time when both global politics and popular culture seem to be defined by a seeming ubiquity of the US, other spaces and cultural productions run the risk of being mere copies, of being "virtually American" rather than originals in their own right. This, too, needs to be reassessed in order to arrive, perhaps, at a more dialogic understanding of what "America" may mean in the world today.
The Construction of the Other in Early Modern Britain: Attraction, Rejection, Symbiosis
The Construction of the Other in Early Modern Britain: Attraction, Rejection, Symbiosis
The early modern period in Britain was considered as instrumental in the formation of English identities. It has only recently been discovered that the conflicting influences of aliens and foreigners on this process have been highlighted. These 'others' were initially approached by the Saidian post-colonial analysis. The early modern episteme was read as an anticipation of the imperial mind: the English representing themselves in an certain way to further their (proto-) imperial aspirations. Yet, recent work has demonstrated the weaknesses of this approach, as early modern England, at least until the late 16th century, was very far from an expanding nation. Nabel Matar has convincingly explained how, for example, the relation of the early modern English with the Muslim other cannot be interpreted from the misconception of English colonial aspirations, since the 16th and 17th century Ottomans, Persians or Moroccons were as powerful as the English themselves. Consequently the texts dealing with these issues must be read from a new perspective, taking into consideration the conflicting (re-) productions of these others, who will simultaneously be absorbed and rejected, attracted and repelled. The essays contained in this volume develop these ideas from a variety of critical perspectives. Although most of the texts analysed are theatrical, other types of texts (such as narratives, historical accounts or even opera) will also be explored. Many of the essays are, to a greater or lesser extent, informed by cultural materialist and cultural semiotic (i.e. Lotmanian) criticism, although some other approaches are also taken into consideration.
'Letzte Rose des Sommers'
'Letzte Rose des Sommers'
Er war Erins Barde schlechthin – Thomas Moore, dessen Liedersammlung 'Irish Melodies' auf der Grünen Insel bis heute populär geblieben ist, ob’s nun um das 'Tal von Avoca' geht oder um das berühmteste Lied des Dichters, die 'Letzte Rose des Sommers'. Fast drei Jahrzehnte lang hat Thomas Moore an dieser Edition gearbeitet, für die er Stoffe aus Irlands Vergangenheit, doch ebenso aus der neueren Geschichte aufgriff und, versehen mit altüberlieferten Melodien, neu faßte: so, wie es – eine Generation zuvor – Robert Burns in Schottland getan hatte. Dabei hatte der Poet seine irische Heimat schon relativ früh verlassen: 1799 war er nach England gegangen, wo er gleich mit seinem ersten Lyrikband Aufsehen erregte und – den jugendlichen Genius Lord Byron zum Dichten inspirierte. Nach dem frühen Tod Byrons verfaßte er dann die Biographie des Freundes. Doch nicht nur mit seinen 'Irish Melodies' trat Thomas Moore hervor. Er war ein Meister der ironisch-satirischen 'light verses', wie u. a. seine 'Briefe aus dem Stadtpostkasten' zeigen. Und seine orientalische Erzählung 'Lalla Rookh' wurde 1819ce7 ein europaweit gefeierter Bestseller. Bemerkenswert aber auch sein zehn Jahre später entstandener religiös-philosophischer Roman 'Der Epikuräer'. In diesem Buch gibt Heiko Postma einen Einblick in das Leben des Autors und stellt eine reiche Auswahl aus dessen Werken vor. Alle Thomas-Moore-Texte sind dabei zweisprachig wiedergegeben: im englischen Original und in Heiko Postmas neuen Übersetzungen. Let Erin remember the days of old!
