Theory and the novel : narrative reflexivity in the British tradition by Jeffrey Williams( )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 2,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrative features such as frames, digressions, or authorial intrusions have traditionally been viewed as distractions from or anomalies in the narrative proper. In Theory and the Novel Jeffrey Williams exposes these elements as more than simple disruptions, analysing them as registers of narrative reflexivity, that is, moments that represent and advertise the functioning of narrative itself. Williams argues that narrative encodes and advertises its own functioning and modal form. He takes a range of novels from the English canon - Tristram Shandy, Joseph Andrews, The Turn of the Screw, Wuther
The critical pulse : thirty-six credos by contemporary critics by Mark Bauerlein( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unprecedented anthology asks thirty-six leading literary and cultural critics to elaborate on the nature of their profession. With the humanities feeling the pinch of financial and political pressures, and its disciplines resting on increasingly uncertain conceptual ground, there couldn't be a better time for critics to reassert their widespread relevance and purpose. These credos boldly defend the function of criticism in contemporary society and showcase its vitality in the era after theory. Essays address literature and politics, with some focusing on the sorry state of higher education and others concentrating on teaching and the fate of the humanities. All reflect the critics' personal, particular experiences. Deeply personal and engaging, these stories move, amuse, and inspire, ultimately encouraging the reader to develop his or her own critical credo with which to approach the world. Reflecting on the past, looking forward to the future, and committed to the power of productive critical thought, this volume proves the value of criticism for today's skeptical audiences

How to be an intellectual : essays on criticism, culture, and the university by Jeffrey Williams( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past decade, Jeffrey J. Williams has been one of the most perceptive observers of contemporary literary and cultural studies. He has also been a shrewd analyst of the state of American higher education. How to Be an Intellectual brings together noted and new essays and exemplifies Williams's effort to bring criticism to a wider public How to Be an Intellectual profiles a number of critics, drawing on a unique series of interviews that give an inside look at their work and careers. The book often looks at critical thought from surprising angles, examining, for instance, the history of modern American criticism in terms of its keywords as they morphed from sound to rigorous to smart. It also puts in plain language the political travesty of higher education policies that produce student debt, which, as Williams demonstrates, all too readily follow the model of colonial indenture, not just as a metaphor but in actual point of fact. How to Be an Intellectual tells a story of intellectual life since the culture wars. Shedding academic obscurity and calling for a better critical writing, it reflects on what makes the critic and intellectual the accidents of careers, the trends in thought, the institutions that shape us, and politics. It also includes personal views of living and working with books"--

Study Guide for the Role of Lord Ruthven in Heinrich Marschner's Der Vampyr by Jeffrey Williams( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Study Guide for the Role of Lord Ruthven in Heinrich Marschner's Der Vampyr is designed to thoroughly prepare the performance of Lord Ruthven and promote Heinrich Marschner's composition beyond the fringes of the operatic repertory. A methodical search of dissertation titles, abstracts, and related studies reveals a lack of preparation, performance, or study guides for Lord Ruthven and other major, compelling characters in opera and music drama. The purpose of this document is to provide a detailed study for the role of Lord Ruthven in Heinrich Marschner's opera, Der Vampyr. The researcher's secondary purpose is for this guide to become a highly reproducible model for other worthy characters in the operatic repertory. This study is intended to aid the singer planning to perform Lord Ruthven, as well as the voice teacher, vocal coach, stage director, and conductor slotted to prepare and instruct the singer. This study will draw into focus what is arguably one of literature's most beguiling protagonists
