Against deconstruction by John M Ellis( Book )
14 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,113 libraries worldwide
"The focus of any genuinely new piece of criticism or interpretation must be on the creative act of finding the new, but deconstruction puts the matter the other way around: its emphasis is on debunking the old. But aside from the fact that this program is inherently uninteresting, it is, in fact, not at all clear that it is possible. ... [T]he naivete of the crowd is deconstruction's very starting point, and its subsequent move is as much an emotional as an intellectual leap to a position that feels different as much in the one way as the other. . . ."--The book

Literature lost : social agendas and the corruption of the humanities by John M Ellis( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 940 libraries worldwide
In the span of less than a generation, university humanities departments have experienced an almost unbelievable reversal of attitudes, now attacking and undermining what had previously been considered best and most worthy in the Western tradition. John M. Ellis here scrutinizes the new regime in humanistic studies. He offers a careful, intelligent analysis that exposes the weaknesses of notions that are fashionable in humanities today. In a clear voice, with forceful logic, he speaks out against the orthodoxy that has installed race, gender, and class perspectives at the center of college humanities curricula

Language and materialism : developments in semiology and the theory of the subject by Rosalind Coward( Book )
7 editions published between 1977 and 1986 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Strcturalism and semiology are perhaps the most significant systems of study have developed this century; they are now central to an astonishing range of fields and disciplines ... This book ... provides an intelligent critical survey of the genesis of that area of the semiological discourse that we have come to know in Britain, in particular the contribution of Saussure, the structuralism of Lévi-Strauss and the decisive shifts achieved by Roland Barthes in the ensuing developments
Visible fictions : cinema, television, video by John Ellis( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The revised edition of this unique work, now a standard text, John Ellis combines an examination of the cinema and television industries with a detailed analysis of their aesthetic and semiotic characteristics. John Ellis uses new developments in theory of narrative and the place of the spectator to re-explore his definition of cinema and broadcast TV as interdependent rather than interchangeable cultural forms, with their own distinct social roles. In a new chapter, he discusses the meaning routines' fundamental to television broadcasting in TV news and soaps, and explores the legacy of the home video boom of the eighties and the replacement of the drive-in with the stay-in'. Considering whether, as its cultural importance diminishes, television is now about to experience a kind of liberation, he expresses his notion of an unfolding and unpredictable revolution in broadcasting
