The words of selves : identification, solidarity, irony by Denise Riley( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author ponders the question: What does it matter what you say about yourself? She wonders why the requirement to be a something-or-other should be so hard to satisfy in a manner that rings true in the ears of its own subject. She decides that some hesitations and awkwardness in inhabiting many categories of the person - including those celebrated by what is sometimes termed identity politics - need not evidence either psychological weakness or political lack of nerve." "This extended meditation on the language of the self within contemporary social politics also considers the lyrical "I" and linguistic emotionality, the historical status of irony, and the possibilities of a nonidentitarian solidarity that is unapologetically alert to the affect of language."--Jacket

The force of language by Jean-Jacques Lecercle( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Force of Language puts forward a new critique of the mainstream philosophy of language, with the co-authorship of Denise Riley and Jean-Jacques Lecercle providing a fresh approach to the field. Riley's past work has suggested that modern convictions of a (supposedly) post-Saussurean bent are less adept at answering persistent questions such as 'how does language express feeling?' Such questions are reworked by Riley in a manner which recognises the inseparability of words and affect. She addresses questions which concern some operations of subliminal metaphoricity and their common but powerful effects: whether we speak language, or whether it speaks us, and how steering a middle term here may be more productive
The language, discourse, society reader( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For twenty-five years, the Language, Discourse, Society series has been at the forefront of multidisciplinary studies, publishing books on topics ranging from biology to aesthetics, sociology to literary criticism, philosophy to art history. The Language, Discourse, Society Reader offers a representative selection of material from those books to give a valuable overview of the work of the series. That work has been concerned both with formal analysis and historical explanation, with both social theory and the study of language, and concerned with showing the necessary interrelations of the separate disciplines for the understanding of the complex reality of different objects of study. The title of the series was, and is, the recognition of this: language, discourse and society are to be grasped together in an interdependence and interaction within which they are neither to be held separate nor run into one another regardless of their specificity. The founding ambition of the series, as the Editors make clear and examine in their introduction to the Reader, was to argue for and develop such an approach. It is that argument and that development which this Reader sets out and exemplifies

Say something back by Denise Riley( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Say Something Back will allow readers to see just why the name of Denise Riley has been held in such high regard by her fellow poets for so long. The book reproduces A Part Song, a profoundly moving document of grieving and loss, and one of the most widely admired long poems of recent years. Elsewhere these poems become a space for contemplation of the natural world and of physical law, and for the deep consideration of what it is to invoke those who are absent. But finally, they extend our sense of what the act of human speech can mean - and especially what is drawn forth from us when we address our dead. Lyric, intimate, acidly witty, unflinchingly brave, Say Something Back is a deeply moving book by one of our finest poets, and one destined to introduce Riley's name to a wide new readership

Time lived, without its flow by Denise Riley( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This essay reflects on how perceptions of time may be altered after the sudden death of a child, and why inhabiting this sharply new temporality stops one's habitual modes of telling. Neither tearful memoir nor testament of hope, the essay charts a vivid experience of such a suspended time and discovers an unsuspected intimacy between time and language. Although a life inside this "arrested" time resists being described, it is neither exceptional or pathological; to outlive one's child is historically common enough. But, because of this felt suspension of the usual flow of time which enables narration, it leaves few literary traces"--Publisher's Web site

Speech or death? : language as social order : a psychoanalytic study by Moustafa Safouan( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using questions of ambiguity in language and of interpretation in psychoanalysis, this book explores the alliance of religion and the social as they support the sacred. It links language, the law of the name, with the gift as obligation. Through its sympathetic critique of Freud's Totem and Taboo, it regards the religion of the father in the light of psychoanalysis: each person caught up in a productive 'solitary alliance' within the social symbolic order."--Jacket
