Cambridge Critical Concepts - Terrorism and Literature (Hardcover): Peter C. Herman Cambridge Critical Concepts - Terrorism and Literature (Hardcover)
Peter C. Herman
R1,590 Discovery Miles 15 900 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Terrorism has long been a major shaping force in the world. However, the meanings of terrorism, as a word and as a set of actions, are intensely contested. This volume explores how literature has dealt with terrorism from the Renaissance to today, inviting the reader to make connections between older instances of terrorism and contemporary ones, and to see how the various literary treatments of terrorism draw on each other. The essays demonstrate that the debates around terrorism only give the fictive imagination more room, and that fiction has a great deal to offer in terms of both understanding terrorism and our responses to it. Written by historians and literary critics, the essays provide essential knowledge to understand terrorism in its full complexity. As befitting a global problem, this book brings together a truly international group of scholars, with representatives from America, Scotland, Canada, New Zealand, Italy, Israel, and other countries.

The New Milton Criticism (Paperback, New): Peter C. Herman, Elizabeth Sauer The New Milton Criticism (Paperback, New)
Peter C. Herman, Elizabeth Sauer
R436 Discovery Miles 4 360 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The New Milton Criticism seeks to emphasize ambivalence and discontinuity in Milton's work and interrogate the assumptions and certainties in previous Milton scholarship. Contributors to the volume move Milton's open-ended poetics to the centre of Milton studies by showing how analysing irresolvable questions - religious, philosophical and literary critical - transforms interpretation and enriches appreciation of his work. The New Milton Criticism encourages scholars to embrace uncertainties in his writings rather than attempt to explain them away. Twelve critics from a range of countries, approaches and methodologies explore these questions in these new readings of Paradise Lost and other works. Sure to become a focus of debate and controversy in the field, this volume is a truly original contribution to early modern studies.

Peter C. Herman
R1,070 Discovery Miles 10 700 Special order

This book explores how recent changes in university culture and administration have affected and will continue to affect the "next generation" of literary critics. How have these recent shifts in material conditions inflected the criticism, sense of the profession, and modes of scholarship of this next generation? If the sixties produced "Theory", then what have the eighties and nineties produced? How has the corporatization of the academy affected hiring practices, and how will it shape the careers of those hired? What will be the impact of computers, the internet, and the various proposed "virtual" universities? In addressing these and other questions, the book marks a profound moment of institutional crisis, and will serve as a resource to all who are concerned with the future direction of literary studies and of higher education in general.

Historicizing Theory (Paperback): Peter C. Herman Historicizing Theory (Paperback)
Peter C. Herman
R676 Discovery Miles 6 760 Special order

Historicizing Theory provides the first serious examination of contemporary theory in relation to the various twentieth-century historical and political contexts out of which it emerged. Theory--a broad category that is often used to encompass theoretical approaches as varied as cleconstruction, New Historicism, and post colonialism--has often been derided as a mere "relic" of the 1960s. In order to move beyond such a simplistic assessment, the essays in this volume examine such important figures as Harold Bloom, Paul de Man, Jacques Derrida, Michael Foucault, Stephen Greenblatt, and Edward Said, situating their work in a variety of contexts inside and outside of the 1960s, including World War 11, the Holocaust, the Algerian civil war, and the canon wars of the 1980s. In bringing us face-to-face with the history of theory, "Historicizing Theory recuperates history for theory and asks us to confront some of the central issues and problems in literary studies today.

Peter C. Herman
R856 Discovery Miles 8 560 Special order

Unspeakable: Literature and Terrorism from the Gunpowder Plot to 9/11 explores the representation of terrorism in plays, novels and films across the centuries. Time and time again, writers and filmmakers including William Shakespeare, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, Gillo Pontecorvo, Don DeLillo, John Updike, and Steven Spielberg refer to terrorist acts as beyond comprehension, "a deed without a name," but they do not stop there. Instead of creating works that respond to terrorism by providing comforting narratives reassuring audiences and readers of their moral superiority and the perfidy of the terrorists, these writers and filmmakers confront the unspeakable by attempting to see the world from the terrorist's perspective and examining the roots of terrorist violence.

James V. Mirollo, Peter C. Herman
R1,547 Discovery Miles 15 470 Special order

Early modern studies is increasingly devoted to opening the borders between supposedly discrete areas of study, including antithetical theoretical approaches, and Opening the Borders provides examplars of this eclectic practice. This collection includes studies of both English and Continental subjects, and it demonstrates that the circulation of older and newer critical practices across borders between various "demarcated" theoretical zones enhances our understanding of early modern texts and culture.

Approaches to Teaching Milton's "Paradise Lost (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition): Peter C. Herman Approaches to Teaching Milton's "Paradise Lost (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition)
Peter C. Herman
R820 Discovery Miles 8 200 Special order

The first part of the volume, "Materials," evaluates the many available editions of the poem, points to relevant reference works, recommends additional reading, and outlines useful audiovisual and online aids for teaching Milton's epic poem. The essays in the second part, "Approaches," are grouped by several themes: literary and historical contexts, characters, poetics, critical approaches, classrooms, and performance.

Jack of Newbury (Paperback): Thomas Deloney Jack of Newbury (Paperback)
Thomas Deloney; Edited by Peter C. Herman
R331 Discovery Miles 3 310 Special order

"Among all manual arts used in this land, none is more famous for desert, or more beneficial to the commonwealth, than is the most necessary art of clothing." So begins Thomas Deloney's extraordinary prose narrative, dedicated "To All Famous Clothworkers in England." It is an amiable and remarkably entertaining work of fiction-and also one that connects powerfully with the real world of sixteenth-century England. Deloney recounts the story of "John Winchcombe, in his younger years called Jack of Newbury," an early sixteenth-century apprentice in the company of weavers. Courted by the wife of his former master, he marries her and thereby becomes wealthy; spends time in the court of Henry VIII and challenges Cardinal Wolsey; and becomes embroiled in a range of comic situations. Amusing as it is, the work also has a serious message: as Peter Herman puts it in his introduction to the volume, "the truly valuable subjects are not the nobility, but the merchant class, people who either labor or provide the opportunity for labor. Industry is the nation's strength, not chivalry. And women are to be respected, not used and then discarded."Set in the early sixteenth century Jack of Newbury resonated powerfully with readers in the 1590s-an era of economic crisis, high unemployment, and great suffering, for all its literary flowering-and was enormously popular. The range of contextual materials included with this edition help to set it in the broader context of its economic and political as well as literary culture.

Approaches to Teaching Milton's Shorter Poetry and Prose (Hardcover): Peter C. Herman Approaches to Teaching Milton's Shorter Poetry and Prose (Hardcover)
Peter C. Herman
R824 Discovery Miles 8 240 Special order

Milton's shorter poetry and prose can be challenging to teach, but they reward instructors and students many times over: they introduce in compact, accessible form the themes and difficult syntax of Paradise Lost, expand and comment on the epic and on one another, and provide students ideal training in close reading. The essays in this volume constitute a road map for exploring the most frequently taught of Milton's shorter works-"Lycidas," the Nativity Ode, Comus, Samson Agonistes, Areopagitica, and The Doctrine and Discipline of Divorce-as well as the sonnets, Paradise Regained, The Reason of Church Government, and The Ready and Easy Way to Establish a Free Commonwealth, among others. The contributors demonstrate ways of incorporating Milton's shorter works into a range of classrooms, from survey courses to Milton seminars; list specific tools to make the works' relevance and aesthetic pleasures available to a wide variety of student populations; and offer a wealth of techniques for helping students navigate Milton's demanding style and complicated historical context.Like all volumes in the Approaches series, this collection includes a convenient survey of original and supplementary materials and a comprehensive array of classroom tactics. Three sections of essays provide general approaches to the poetry and prose, through biography, genre, literary and political history, and other methodologies. The fourth section addresses the teaching of individual poems, and the final section articulates ways into specific prose works.
