  • The “Overcoat” of Nabokov’s Luzhin: Defense as
           Self-Destruction
    • Abstract: to hear the music of the world, to know its sights and sounds This article traces the allusions to Nikolai Gogol’s “The Overcoat” (“Shinel,” 1842) in Vladimir Nabokov’s third novel, Zashchita Luzhina (1929–1930; The Defense, 1964) and presents the chess-obsessed Luzhin as a latter-day calligraphy-obsessed Akaky Akakievich. This Gogolian trajectory is complemented by the theme of the “loss of music,” where “music” is largely synonymous with “inspiration.” The loss of inspiration is linked to the young Luzhin’s autistic alienation from his family and other human relationships, not least erotic ones. The convergence of these two themes points to Luzhin’s fear of life and his quest for protection from the ... Read More

  • Utopia and Its Otherwise: Revolutionary Youthfulness, Lyricism, and
           Alternative Quests for the “East” in Kundera’s Life Is Elsewhere
    • Abstract: There has long been a widespread impression that the May 1968 movement in France was, among other parallel barricades of the time, the epitome of European countercultures during the revolutionary heyday of the sixties. Many popular cultural works about this blossoming epoch, including Bernardo Bertolucci’s transnational film The Dreamers (2003), have taken the events of French 1968 as the major historical reference to help articulate the sociopolitical significance of sexual liberations, lyrical lifestyles, and youthful anti-authoritarianism against the long-standing dominance of Western bourgeois ideology. However, for those who have painfully experienced and survived the totalitarian terror in ex-Stalinist ... Read More

  • Romain Gary and the Aesthetics of Survival: From Genghis Cohn to King
           Solomon
    • Abstract: In the novel The Dance of Genghis Cohn (La danse de Gengis Cohn, 1967) Romain Gary investigates the ties that bind victim and victimizer. His conclusion is paradoxical and disturbing: the responsibility for the crime lies not only on the perpetrator’s shoulders but also on those of the victim, since all humans share a common unconscious and thus are all capable of evil. The same collective unconscious drives people to strive for the sublime, in an effort to transcend an imperfect common existence. In King Solomon (L’Angoisse du roi Salomon, 1979), Gary further acknowledges man’s shortcomings and the unattainability of perfection. In addition, Gary points to an alternative mode of being, one which is both ... Read More

  • Narrating Sounds: Introduction to the Forum
    • Abstract: In his autobiographical text Winter Journal, Paul Auster reflects on his work as a writer: In order to do what you do, you need to walk. Walking is what brings the words to you, what allows you to hear the rhythms of the words as you write them in your head. One foot forward, and then the other foot forward, the double drumbeat of your heart. Two eyes, two ears, two legs, two feet. This, and then that. That, and then this. Writing begins in the body, it is the music of the body, and even if the words have meaning, can sometimes have meaning, the music of the words is where the meanings begin. You sit at your desk in order to write down the words, but in your head you are still walking, always walking ... Read More

  • New Modes of Listening: The Mediality of Musical Novels
    • Abstract: A musical novel is a novel that attempts to reproduce in the medium of text aspects specific to music, whether those be elements of music’s sound, its structures, or its performance and reception contexts, all of which can be dealt with by means of thematization and of imitation, to use Werner Wolf’s (1999) terms. To put it another way, they can be described or they can be reproduced. In The Musical Novel, I analyzed novels inspired by jazz as well as those modeled on Bach’s Goldberg Variations and in both cases the context of a piece’s performance — in a jam session, in a New Orleans parade, as a concert, or as a record — proved to be a significant part of what the text imitated and thematized (see ...

  • Musical Macrostructures in The Gold Bug Variations and Orfeo by Richard
           Powers; or, Toward a Media-Conscious Audionarratology
    • Abstract: To be sure, all music is sound. Investigations into the forms and functions of music in narrative texts therefore fall into the research area that Jarmila Mildorf and Till Kinzel (2016) subsume under the term “audio-narratology.” Yet the reverse does not hold — not all sound is music. As Mildorf and Kinzel also point out, music requires by necessity a structuring of sound. Even John Cage’s most iconoclastic piece, 4′33″, consists of three movements, during which all instrumental sounds are suppressed by the instruction tacet for four minutes and thirty-three seconds. That is, in addition to a semiotic substance, music involves institutions and behaviors that encode this substance by means of historically ... Read More

  • Being Silent, Doing Nothing: Silence as a Symbol of Peace in Ivan
           Goncharov’s Oblomov and Ha Jin’s Waiting
    • Abstract: A small corpus of narratives defies the convention of focus on human action by representing characters who are unable or unwilling to act. In such narratives, problems turning ideas into reality or functioning within a social system are often explored through the theme of physical inactivity — most commonly labeled laziness, sloth, or indolence — yet rarely through the absence of intellectual activity such as thought or speech. On the contrary, the characters’ readiness to chat and philosophize is prominent in Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain and Robert Musil’s The Man Without Qualities, two of the best-known modern novels dealing with inactivity. Reflection and the need to communicate, even if with just ... Read More

  • Singing Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow: Interfaces of Song,
           Narrative, and Sonic Performance
    • Abstract: Following the publication of Inherent Vice, Thomas Pynchon distributed through Amazon.com an exclusive playlist of forty-two musical pieces featured in his novel (Pynchon 2009). What at first seemed an unusual strategy for promoting the work, upon closer examination emerges as an example of Pynchon’s characteristic playfulness. Among the songs featured in the playlist, eight were purely fictional and, unlike other pieces, could not be consumed in ways suggested by the digital provider. All things considered, Pynchon’s gesture reflects his continued interest in music, already evident in his earliest literary productions. While still at Cornell University, Pynchon composed a libretto for a musical together ... Read More

  • Non-Sovereign Voices in Friederike Mayröcker’s Aural Texts
    • Abstract: When the German Romantics started to systematically write down orally delivered folk tales and songs, they did so out of the belief that the oral telling of stories provided a direct expression of the poetic soul of the language and the people who spoke it. In order to preserve that poetic soul, they captured its voice in writing, thus transposing orality into another, seemingly less direct medium — a paradox they accepted for the sake of preservation and historiography. In the 20th century the medium of the radiophone seemed to offer a solution to that paradox: the recorded voice could once again speak directly to the human ear. Indeed, even more so than their Romantic predecessors, modern adepts of the ... Read More

  • Narrativity and Sound in German Radio Play Adaptations of Paul
           Auster’s The New York Trilogy
    • Abstract: Paul Auster’s The New York Trilogy (1987) contains a considerable amount of intermediality and thus offers multiple options for adaptation. This highly enigmatic tripartite work makes seriously playful use of post-modern narrative strategies while at the same time drawing on generic conventions of crime fiction. Foremost among the latter is the use of the private eye as focalizer. Auster does not, however, employ a first-person narrator as in Raymond Chandler’s famous hard-boiled novels narrated by Philip Marlowe, the private eye. More significantly, Auster presents his narrator not as a generic detective, but rather as someone remaining nameless reporting on someone else called Quinn, who actually writes ... Read More

  • Sounding Postmodernity: Narrative Voices in the Radio Adaptation of
           Alasdair Gray’s Lanark
    • Abstract: In structuralist narratology, one key analytical category for written narratives is narrative “voice,” which Gérard Genette defined in contradistinction to narrative “mood” as an answer to the question “who is the narrator?” (or “who speaks?”) rather than “who is the character whose point of view orients the narrative perspective?” (or “who sees?” 186). Genette’s term has come in for much criticism: poststructuralists have taken issue with the centralized and dominant speaking subject which the concept of “voice” hypostasizes, while linguists have criticized the notion of communication that underlies the concept (see Blödorn, Langer, and Scheffel 2006b: 3 and, for a more extended overview, Jongeneel). ...

  • Female Gothic Histories: Gender, History and the Gothic by Diana Wallace
           (review)
    • Abstract: In Female Gothic Histories, Diana Wallace aims to retrieve a tradition of women’s historical fiction that, she claims, has been excluded from dominant accounts of the genre’s development. Traditionally traced back to the work of Sir Walter Scott, historical fiction, according to Wallace, has “an alternative female genealogy” (5) that begins decades before Scott in Sophia Lee’s The Recess; or, A Tale of Other Times (1783–1785) and extends all the way to the present. To this assertion she adds a second major claim: women’s historical fiction blurs one of the essential boundaries used by Scott himself, and theorists after him, to define the historical novel — the boundary between history and the Gothic. ...

  • Kazuo Ishiguro and Memory by Yugin Teo (review)
    • Abstract: Memory is one of the most discussed topics in both fictional narratives and the literary and critical theory of the last decades. The reasons for the fascination of many contemporary writers with memory are almost as variable as the work of memory itself: the intricate relations between memory and history (as well as historical writing); memory as a crucial element for the development, the retention, and the effacement of self-identity; and memory as a fundamental factor in the stream of consciousness. Perhaps more emphatically than any other cognitive process, memory is evidence of the construction (rather than the reflection) of reality by the human mind. Yugin Teo’s book Kazuo Ishiguro and ...

  • British Women and the Intellectual World in the Long Eighteenth Century
           ed. by Teresa Barnard (review)
    • Abstract: This diverse and stimulating collection of essays about women who challenged gender boundaries in the 18th century is grouped according to three categories: science, religion, and politics with philosophy. Some of the women discussed in these chapters have already been extensively written about, but hitherto unexplored areas of their work are uncovered here, while other chapters introduce women whose contribution to the intellectual life of the 18th century has been unrecognized. Taking the strategic version of feminism expressed by Anna Laetitia Barbauld in her poem “The Rights of Women” (1792) as the inspiration for this collection, Teresa Barnard and Ruth Watts introduce the context for these essays: the ...
