Romancing the shadow : Poe and race by Gerald J. (Ed.) Kennedy( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edgar Allen Poe's strength as a writer lay in fabricating fantisies in settings far removed from his own place and time. This dislocation renders the attitudes embedded in his fiction open to interpretation, and over the years some readers have found Poe to be virulently racist, while others found him morally conflicted, and still others detected a subversion of racism in his works' subtle sympathies for non-white characters. As a nineteenth-century Southerner, Poe was a deeply ambiguous figure, evading race issues while living among them, and traversing the North-South border with little sensitivity to its political implications. In this tightly organized volume, a handful of leading Americanists revisit the Poe issue, re-examining what it means to speak of an author and his work as racist, and where the critic's responsibility lies

Hauptbeschreibung Als ""Feindesland"" soll Fritz Bauer die Welt außerhalb seines Büros bezeichnet haben. Der bedeutende Jurist und jüdische Remigrant hat im Nachkriegsdeutschland für seine Aufklärungsarbeit über die NS-Verbrechen sehr viel Ablehnung erfahren. Selten sind seine juristische Arbeit und sein politisches Handeln jedoch mit seiner jüdischen Biografie in Zusammenhang gebracht worden. Diese zeigt, dass es im Umfeld Bauers eine ganze Reihe jüdischer Juristen, Historiker und Vertreter von Interessenverbänden gab, die ihn unterstützten. Typisch für ihre und Fritz Bauers Situation in der
