Literary Epiphany in the Novel, 1850-1950: Constellations of the Soul

Literary Epiphany in the Novel, 1850-1950: Constellations of the SoulLiterary Epiphany in the Novel, 1850-1950: Constellations of the Soul

This book studies literary epiphany as a modality of character in the British and American novel. Epiphany presents a significant alternative to traditional models of linking the eye, the mind, and subject formation, an alternative that consistently attracts the language of spirituality, even in anti-supernatural texts. This book analyzes how these epiphanies become "spiritual" and how both character and narrative shape themselves like constellations around such moments.

A Theory of Literary Production

A Theory of Literary ProductionA Theory of Literary Production

Who is more important: the reader, or the writer? Originally published in French in 1966, Pierre Macherey’s first and most famous work, A Theory of Literary Production dared to challenge perceived wisdom, and quickly established him as a pivotal figure in literary theory. The reissue of this work as a Routledge Classic brings some radical ideas to a new audience, and argues persuasively for a totally new way of reading. As such, it is an essential work for anyone interested in the development of literary theory.

Literary into Cultural Studies

Literary into Cultural StudiesLiterary into Cultural Studies

This is, put simply, a Very Useful Book. It seems to be mostly aimed at people used to traditional literary criticism, who are interested in the whole new & exciting thang that is Cultural Studies - reading and interpreting all sorts of cultural objects, from tv shows and movies, to public buildings, to cereal packets, to (and this is really where this book comes in) poems and novels and plays. It's a good, clear summary of a fascinating but often confusing field, and it's practical too if (like me) you want to start doing this cultural analysis yourself.
