Illustration by J. Hillis Miller( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positioning himself in the slippery divide between two highly charged critical approaches--deconstruction and cultural studies--J. Hillis Miller explains why the split occurred and offers, for the first time, an eloquent analysis of the goals and methods of cultural studies. Miller's Illustration is an intellectual adventure that transgresses the boundaries of critical theory to reveal the ideological forces at work. The result, art critic Norman Bryson concludes, "is an extraordinary performance." In a positive, constructive way, Miller describes cultural studies as, primarily, a means of contextualizing works of art. Relating the assumptions behind this approach to recent social, political, and technological changes, he shows how cultural studies is itself subject to its context and thus perhaps misguided insofar as it portrays art objects as "mere illustration." In particular, Miller considers new forms of electronic research in the humanities which, with their vast, homogenizing effect on data, can compel a critic to reconfigure information--in fact, to create the context that he or she means simply to identify. To illustrate this phenomenon, Miller investigates one topic of importance for cultural studies: the relation of verbal and visual forms in multimedia works. Drawing examples from Twain, Gorey, Mallarme, James, Ruskin, Heidegger, Dickens, and Turner, he shows how neither word nor image takes priority in such collaborations; nor is either a mere representation of a pre-existing reality. The transformations wrought by cultural artifacts on their contexts, Miller contends, must be identified through detailed and vigilant "rhetorical" readings if the force of a work of art is to be passed on into the current cultural situation. And for the new form these readings take, the reader-critic must in turn assume responsibility

Tropes, parables, performatives : essays on twentieth-century literature by J. Hillis Miller( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropes, Parables, Performatives collects J. Hillis Miller's essays on seven major twentieth-century authors: Lawrence, Kafka, Stevens, Williams, Woolf, Hardy, and Conrad. For all their evident differences, these essays from early to late explore a single intuition about literature, which may be framed by three words: "trope," "parable," and "performative."Throughout these essays Miller is fascinated with the tropological dimension of literary language, with the way figures of speech turn aside the telling of a story or the presentation of a literary theme. The exploration of this turning leads

Literature as conduct : speech acts in Henry James by J. Hillis Miller( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of a master critic, this book draws on speech act theory, to investigate the many dimensions of doing things with words in Henry James's fiction. The author shows that three modes of speech act occur in James's novels and the action of each work is brought about by its own idiosyncratic repertoire
Reading for our time : Adam Bede and Middlemarch revisited by J. Hillis Miller( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can reading Adam Bede and Middlemarch be justified in this time of climate change, financial meltdown and ineffective politicians? J. Hillis Miller shows how, to be read for today, they must be read slowly, closely and carefully, with much attention to linguistic detail and especially to figures of speech. By relating mistakes like Dorothea's about Casaubon to current affairs, Miller's 'readings for today' can help us to come to terms with our human, social and political situation and even inspire us to act to ameliorate it
