Death, desire, and loss in Western culture by Jonathan Dollimore( Book )

32 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture is a rich testament to our ubiquitous preoccupation with the tangled web of death and desire. In these pages we find nuanced analysis that blends Plato with Shelley, Holderlin with Foucault. Dollimore, a gifted thinker, is not content to summarize these texts from afar; instead, he weaves a thread through each to tell the magnificent story of the making of the modern individual. An immensely important book, Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture promises to change the way we understand desire, sexuality and the very notion of identity

Sex, literature, and censorship by Jonathan Dollimore( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and Hungarian and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Those who love and live by art tell us that it is the most exalted expression of civilized life. In this provocative new book, Jonathan Dollimore argues that, far from confirming humane values, literature more often than not violates them." "He begins with a polemical and witty attack on the spurious radicalism of some fashionable academic theories about desire and sexual dissidence. Dollimore then examines the ways in which the media, literary critics and the state, as well as these literary theorists, all deny or repress the disturbing and dangerous knowledge conveyed by literature." "His own account of the volatile connections between aesthetics, desire, politics and censorship unfolds through topics such as homosexuality, bisexuality, sexual disgust, and the disturbing relations between art and inhumanity, and through brilliant insights into a wide range of authors including Euripides, Shakespeare, Tennyson and Yeats." "Most persistently, this book is about how the experience of desire and art compromises our most cherished ethical beliefs. If this helps make art irresistible and of indispensable value, it follows too that there are reasonable grounds for wanting to censor it." "This compelling and accessibly written book will be essential reading for students and scholars of literary, gender and cultural studies, and will have a major impact on debates about art, sexuality, censorship and the role of the intellectual."--Jacket

The tragedy of state by J. W Lever( Book )

8 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in English and Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The domination of the state over the lives of individuals is a problem of the present-day world. In Jacobean tragedy J.W. Lever finds essentially the same problem in the shape it assumed during the rise of the first European nation states. The English dramatists of the early seventeenth century are seen as giving expression to the ferment of ideas which, only a generation later, precipitated the revolutionary struggles of the 1640s. Some of the major Jacobean tragedies are seen in this book as having a close bearing upon the vital issues of our own age; not only the evils of tyranny but the ambivalent ethics of revolt are explored. When it was first published in 1971, 'The Tragedy of State' presented a challenge to the dominant view of Jacobean tragedy: often interpreted in terms of the Elizabethan World Picture, the drama was held by many in a conservative light. Now increasingly recognized as a forerunner to modern work on the Renaissance, this classic volume has been unavailable in paperback for many years. It is reissued with a new introduction in which Jonathan Dollimore sketches briefly some of the larger critical, intellectual, aesthetic and political issues that concerned Lever and which remain current within contemporary cultural criticism and literary theory. The accompanying references provide students with a guide to recent work which is transforming the study of Renaissance drama

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demonic : literature and experience by Ewan Fernie( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are we either good or bad, and do we really know the difference? Why do we want what we cannot have, and even to be what we're not? Can we desire others without wanting to possess them? Can we open to others and not risk possession ourselves? And where, in these cases, do we draw the line? Ewan Fernie argues that the demonic tradition in literature offers a key to our most agonised and intimate experiences. The Demonic ranges across the breadth of Western culture, engaging with writers as central and various as Luther, Shakespeare, Hegel, Dostoevsky, Melville and Mann. A powerful foreword by Jonathan Dollimore brings out its implications as an intellectual and stylistic breakthrough into new ways of writing criticism. Fernie unfolds an intense and personal vision, not just of Western modernity, but of identity, morality and sex. As much as it's concerned with the great works, this is a book about life"--Publisher's website
