Ray Bradbury : the life of fiction by Jonathan R Eller( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction is the first comprehensive textual, bibliographical, and cultural study of sixty years of Bradbury's fiction. Drawing on correspondence with his publishers, agents, and friends, as well as archival manuscripts, The Life of Fiction examines the story of Bradbury's authorship over more than a half-century, from his earliest writings, which include The Martian Chronicles, to his most recently published novel, Let's All Kill Constance. It shows in detail the often devious and unsuspected interconnections between his unpublished fiction, his story collections, and his most celebrated novels." "The Life of Fiction focuses on the nature of Bradbury's authorship, exploring his profound involvement with the life of "carnival" as a textual process as well as a thematic concern in his writings, and each chapter of this book delves more deeply into how this process of meaning has shaped Bradbury's technique over the years. Bradbury's authorship is finally seen as occupying a unique position in our literary landscape - one that operates on the borders of popular entertainment and serious literature." "Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction will be welcomed by Bradbury fans and scholar, adding greatly to the understanding of his work and affecting the way Bradbury is read."--Jacket

Lord Dunsany, H.P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury : spectral journeys by William F Touponce( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lord Dunsany, H.P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury: Spectral Journeys, William F. Touponce examines what these three masters of weird fiction reveal about modernity and the condition of being modern in their tales. In this study, Touponce confirms that these three authors viewed storytelling as a kind of journey into the spectral. Furthermore, he explains how each identifies modernity with capitalism in various ways and shows a concern with surpassing the limits of realism, which they see as tied to the representation of bourgeois society. The collected writings of Lord Dunsany, H.P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury span the length of the tumultuous twentieth century with hundreds of stories. By comparing these authors, Touponce also traces the development of supernatural fiction since the early 1900s. Reading about how these works were tied to various stages of capitalism, one can see the connection between supernatural literature and society. This study will appeal to fans of the three authors discussed here, as well as to scholars and others interested in the connection between literature and society, criticism of supernatural fiction, the nature of storytelling, and the meaning and experience of modernity."--Publisher's description

Like its pioneering predecessor, the one-volume review published in 1952 by William F. Nolan, "The New Ray Bradbury Review" contains articles and reviews about Bradbury but has a much broader scope, including a thematic focus for each issue. Since Nolan composed his slim volume at the beginning of Bradbury's career, Bradbury has produced hundreds of stories and half a dozen novels, making him one of this country's most anthologized authors. While his effect on the genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction is still being assessed (see "Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction", The Kent State University Press, 2004), there is no doubt about his impact, and to judge from the testimony of his admirers, many of them now professional writers themselves, it is clear that he has affected the lives of five generations of readers. "The New Ray Bradbury Review" is designed principally to study the impact of Bradbury's writings on American culture and is the chief publication of The Center for Ray Bradbury Studies - the archive of Bradbury's writings located at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. In this second number, scholars discuss Bradbury's view of the role of art and aesthetics in our modern technological lives. With the publication of his 1953 short story "The Day After Tomorrow in Nature", Bradbury began to articulate the ways in which science fiction could become a valid aesthetic response to the machine-oriented world. He asks and answers the questions: Can art still have a humanizing effect on culture and society? What is the role and responsibility of the artist to his public in an age of mechanical reproduction of art? And what of robots, aliens, and space flight, those icons of science fiction and fantasy? Bradbury's answers drew the attention of renowned Renaissance art historian and aesthetician Bernard Berenson, prompting him to begin a correspondence with Bradbury that spanned several years and is reproduced in this issue. Also included in this number is a fragment from Bradbury's screenplay "The Chrysalis" and a review of "Now and Forever", as well as insightful essays by Jon Eller and Roger Lay. Fans and scholars alike will welcome "The New Ray Bradbury Review", as it will add to the understanding of the life and work of this eminent author, whose work has received both a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize
