After the end of history : American fiction in the 1990s by Samuel S Cohen( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel Cohen asserts the literary and historical importance of the period between the fall of the Berlin wall and that of the Twin Towers in New York. He examines six 1990s novels and two post-9/11 novels that explore the impact of the end of the Cold War. Cohen emphasizes how these works reconnect the past to a present that is ironically keen on denying that connection. --from publisher description
The legacy of David Foster Wallace( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered by many to be the greatest writer of his generation, David Foster Wallace was at the height of his creative powers when he committed suicide in 2008. In a sweeping portrait of Wallace's writing and thought and as a measure of his importance in literary history, The Legacy of David Foster Wallace gathers cutting-edge, field-defining scholarship by critics alongside remembrances by many of his writer friends, who include some of the world's most influential authors. In this elegant volume, literary critics scrutinize the existing Wallace scholarship and at the same time pioneer new ways of understanding Wallace's fiction and journalism. In critical essays exploring a variety of topics - including Wallace's relationship to American literary history, his place in literary journalism, his complicated relationship to his postmodernist predecessors, the formal difficulties of his 1996 magnum opus Infinite Jest, his environmental imagination, and the "social life" of his fiction and nonfiction - contributors plumb sources as diverse as Amazon.com reader recommendations, professional book reviews, the 2009 Infinite Summer project, and the David Foster Wallace archive at the University of Texas's Harry Ransom Center. The creative writers - including Don DeLillo, Jonathan Franzen, George Saunders, Rick Moody, Dave Eggers, and David Lipsky, and Wallace's Little, Brown editor, Michael Pietsch - reflect on the person behind the volumes of fiction and nonfiction created during the author's too-short life. All of the essays, critical and creative alike, are written in an accessible style that does not presume any background in Wallace criticism. Whether the reader is an expert in all things David Foster Wallace, a casual fan of his fiction and nonfiction, or completely new to Wallace, The Legacy of David Foster Wallace will reveal the power and innovation that defined his contribution to literary life and to self-understanding. This illuminating volume is destined to shape our understanding of Wallace, his writing, and his place in history."--Project Muse

Trauma and the fantastic in twentieth century war fiction by Michael A Horton( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis examines the relationship between trauma and the literary mode of the fantastic. While the fantastic has historically been understood as an escapist mode or a literature of wish fulfillment, it may also play an important role in how victims of trauma construct their narratives. The fantastic does not simply leave trauma behind or provide pleasant alternatives to actual experiences; rather, it can constitute the acting out of trauma, facilitate working through, and even enable victims to bear witness to the traumatic past. After a brief overview of both trauma theory and the effects of combat trauma, this study offers readings of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, John A. Williams' Captain Blackman, and Tim O'Brien's Going After Cacciato to show that fantastic elements in trauma narratives can be read as responses to and manifestations of trauma. The second chapter returns to O'Brien's novel to examine the fantastic mode as a means of healing. The study concludes with an analysis of the fantastic as bearing witness to real historical events in addition to those that make up the experience of trauma itself

Explicating the incipits a writer's journey in Italo Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler by Nell H McCabe( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the scholarly work on Italo Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler focuses on the importance of the R/reader in the text by looking at the numbered chapters as the framework through which the entirety of the text can be understood. The relationship between the writer and the reader is indeed vitally important to an understanding of the text, but within each of the titled chapters, or incipits as many refer to them, there exists more than simply a series of genre samples - the spy novel, the detective novel, the thriller. Approaching the novel from the perspective of a writer and reading the titled chapters as allegories of the writing process itself rather than mere novel fragments designed to move the plot of the numbered chapters forward, provides the opportunity to construct a new text that puts the writer, as well as the reader, at the center of the process of textual creation and the production of textual truth
