  • Edward Gibbon's Autobiographies and the Historicist Critique of
           Enlightenment Historiography
    • Abstract: Edward Gibbon is remembered primarily as the author of the greatest work of history composed in the eighteenth century — The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. His Autobiography is the most familiar of his other works, yet most readers remain oblivious to the fact that this work was in fact unfinished, and the editions presented to modern readers are edited based on several, mostly incomplete, versions of his autobiography which he composed towards the end of his life. This article will examine these various autobiographies with the aim of understanding not just the reasons for Gibbon's dissatisfaction with them but also his view of historical composition in general. Gibbon approached ... Read More

  • Robert Frost's Traitors and His Poetics of Disloyalty
    • Abstract: It has become a cliché to say that, in the personal realm, Robert Frost was mischievous or even treacherous.1 To some extent, this is the legacy of Lawrance Thompson, his official biographer, who went to great lengths to assert the poet's disloyalty to many of his relatives, friends, and associates — for example, to his sister Jeanie, by remaining sane when she was becoming delusional, or to his son Carol, by failing to have a "sustained affection" for him (see Thompson and Winnick 69).Many readers in the 1960s felt that Frost was capable of political disloyalty. Today Frost is usually remembered as a senior knight of Camelot. Before 1960, however, the poet was Ike's man, and his association with Kennedy seemed to ... Read More

  • Fascination in Julio Cortázar's "Axolotl"
    • Abstract: In recent decades there has been a surging interest in the history and theory of fascination among scholars of literature, art, media, and communication.1 Still, the concept of fascination remains under-theorized and undeveloped; its status in human attention and interpersonal relations as well as its place in the history of knowledge generally are in need of further scrutiny. One arena where scenes of fascination are set up and tested is literature. Julio Cortázar's famous short story "Axolotl," published in Final del juego in 1956, gives us an excellent opportunity to rethink fascination and what it means to be taken in by an object. With the aid of Cortázar's intriguing story of a man's encounter with, and his ... Read More

  • The Meaning of Liberation: From The Joy Luck Club to Face and Saving Face
    • Abstract: By 2003, Amy Tan's 1989 novel The Joy Luck Club had sold nearly four million copies and was already acclaimed as a classic of Chinese American literature (Chang 392). The film bearing the same title, directed by the Hong Kong-born Wayne Wang in 1993, was just as successful, winning various prizes and nominations, including one nomination for best screenwriter, at different film festivals. As far as films about Chinese culture made in the US are concerned, The Joy Luck Club can also be considered a classic, and even a standard to which successors will inevitably compare themselves.Amy Tan and Wayne Wang, the scriptwriters of The Joy Luck Club, seem to have tried to be faithful to the original novel. Both the setting ... Read More

  • Narrating Selves from the Bible to Social Media: Introduction to the Forum
    • Abstract: Philosophers as varied as Kierkegaard, Habermas, Rawls, Rorty, Nietzsche, Lukács, Bakhtin, and Benjamin have reflected on what it means to tell one's life (see Thomä 43–80, 86–119, 126–63, and 222–46 for an overview). The nexus between narrating and self raises questions regarding responsibility, autonomy, and self-realization, and has also been discussed in connection with notions of virtue, the good life, self-love, and, more generally, what it means to be a human being. The philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre made a crucial contribution (1984) to thematizing the problems of narrating selves and identities.MacIntyre's argument about everyday selves and identities builds on literary examples and concepts, making ...

  • Narrating Selves and the Literary in the Bible
    • Abstract: This article began as a study of narrative selves in the Bible.1 I started by focusing on the book of Nehemiah and autobiographical passages in Paul's letters. These texts are narrative, aspire to be historical, and are apprehended as having an argumentative purpose — someone narrates about himself in order to explain and defend his acts. However, some sections in Nehemiah, which stand out given the assumed purpose of the text, made me turn my attention to more general problems in narrative theory. What features in a text determine our appreciation of its function and purpose' And how do readers' understanding of the character and intent of a text affect their attitude toward and interpretation of the text' When ...

  • Intermedial Experience and Ekphrasis in Wordsworth's "Slumber"
    • Abstract: There has been no shortage of debate on William Wordsworth's "A slumber did my spirit seal" (1800) in the last century. From the biographically oriented readings of E. D. Hirsch (1960) and Richard E. Matlak (1978) to the psychoanalytically charged views of Geoffrey Hartman (1964) and J. Hillis Miller (1979) and the pragmatically steered interpretation of Robert B. Meyers (1980), as well as linguistic experiments such as Steven Knapp and Walter Benn Michaels's (1982) imaginary play on the poem, along with Peggy Kamuf's (1986) and Marc Redfield's (2011) critical responses to their experiment, and a wide variety of thematic readings, such as Pieter Vermeulen's (2009) understanding of community inspired by the ...

  • Autobiography, the Literary, and the Everyday in Paul Auster's Report from
           the Interior
    • Abstract: In this paper I want to explore the idea that autobiography can, paradoxically, become a means of withdrawal, a game in which the autobiographical subject seems to offer insight into his or her thoughts and life but then retreats in such a way that one can only glimpse a shiny or not so shiny surface. This is not so unusual, as Arnaud Schmitt points out in his recent phenomenological study of autobiography, arguing that "any articulate reader" is aware of the factthat the subjectivity on display in the text being read has limited scope and is restricted not merely to what the author is willing to offer but to what the context (a published book) can offer. In other words, a reasonable reader of autobiography knows ... Read More

  • Narrating Selves amid Library Shelves: Literary Mediation and Demediation
           in S. by J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst
    • Abstract: This article focuses on the various forms of narrating, mediating, and interpreting selves within and around a book object, the novel S. (2013) by J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. The novel S. is an experiment in producing a deceivingly realistic replica of a maltreated library book object, but its discursive practices also rely on familiar literary forms, harking back to epistolary commonplaces, as well as to marginalia, both ancient and modern. S. also problematizes narration, mediation, and the representation of textual selves through its data overkill verging on unreadability. I will consider the possible significances of "demediation" in literary experimentation with the book form.Since the introduction of ... Read More

  • Literary Facebook Narratology: Experientiality, Simultaneity, Tellability
    • Abstract: nothing else but what happens to me, such as speakingIn the contemporary field of narrative theory, which combines literary and social-science approaches, the socio-cultural aspects of social-media storytelling have been widely discussed. However, the literary potential of social-media storytelling has gone almost unnoticed. We need research on the literary craft in social media and on its interpretation, as platforms such as Facebook or Twitter are gradually transforming our understanding of what is meant by narrative and what narrative is considered compelling (Georgakopoulou 2013: 220–21 and 2017: 36–38). From the perspective of literary narratology, the two-way traffic between conventions of literary fiction ... Read More

  • The Labor of the Mind: Intellect and Gender in Enlightenment Cultures by
           Anthony J. La Vopa, and: Anna Seward's Journal and Sermons ed by Teresa
           Barnard (review)
    • Abstract: Addressing gender concepts of the past is, one would assume, a relatively easy task. And yet that is never really the case. Theoretical infrastructures, decades of glorious feminist work to undermine patriarchal preconceptions on womanhood and feminine authorship, and the general tendency to project onto texts of the past make scholarly attempts such as the two books reviewed here appear as untrendy efforts to understand the "large-frame structural changes in social relations and cultural practices" (La Vopa 12). In contrast to the widespread methodological glitch which Anthony La Vopa calls "the presentist oversimplifications of early modern articulations of feminism" (10), these two books place texts within ...

  • The Cambridge Introduction to Postmodernism by Brian McHale (review)
    • Abstract: In a study remarkable for order, context, clarity and precision, Brian McHale claims that postmodernism began in 1966, peaked in 1973, declined from 1989, and ended on September 11, 2001, and that now, with the benefit of some distance, we are able to characterize the period more definitively.McHale is not the first to attach a specific date to an evolutionary process. Willa Cather's often quoted statement that "[t]he world broke in two in 1922 or thereabouts" became the basis for a recent popular literary history of the start of modernism by Bill Goldstein, The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature. McHale similarly believes that ... Read More

  • Existential Threats: American Apocalyptic Beliefs in the Technological Age
           by Lisa Vox (review)
    • Abstract: According to a recent poll, fully 41% of Americans believe that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will happen within their lifetimes. This is a staggeringly high number, and no explanation of the recent political events in the US, including the election of Donald Trump, the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, and the backlash against environmentalism and globalism, can be adequate without taking into account the history and culture of apocalyptic beliefs. In her book, Lisa Vox attempts to do just that. There is no denying the importance of the task; whether she succeeds is a different matter.Vox argues that there is a common historical trajectory that unifies such seemingly disparate phenomena as the ...
