  • ‘This is the Hell that I have Heard of’: Some Dialectical
           Images in Fossil Fuel Fiction
    • Authors: Malm A.
      First page: 121
      Abstract: How can the realities of global warming be made visible in literary texts? After the rise of ‘cli-fi’, it might be time to return to a trove of literature written long before the discoveries of climate science: fiction about fossil fuels. It is filled with premonitions of disasters, such as extreme heat and terrible storms. Focusing on two texts – Ghassan Kanafani’s Men in the Sun and Joseph Conrad’s Typhoon – this essay makes a case for developing ‘dialectical images’, in Walter Benjamin’s sense of the term, from fossil fuel fiction. Such images might contribute to a critical understanding of our current epoch, fracturing the narrative of the human species as a united entity ascending to biospheric dominance in the Anthropocene. The miseries of global warming have been in preparation for a long time. Some have felt the heat from the start.

  • Why Look at Animals? Creaturely Encounters in Philosophy and
           Literature
    • Authors: Malay M.
      First page: 142
      Abstract: This essay considers encounters with animals in the work of Henry David Thoreau, Stanley Cavell and J. M. Coetzee. More specifically, it explores what it calls ‘poetic’ engagements with animals – engagements in which our relations with nonhuman others are not cast in appropriative or instrumental terms. Along the way, it draws on the work of the American philosopher Cora Diamond. It also takes inspiration from a famous passage from George Eliot’s Middlemarch, and offers a creaturely, environmental reading of some of the ideas invoked in that novel. What, it asks, might it be like to respond to Eliot’s injunction to treat the lives of others with complete seriousness?

  • The Sound of a (New) Generation? Intermedial References to Pop Music
           in Judith Hermann's Prose
    • Authors: Dautel K.
      First page: 163
      Abstract: The creation of the characteristic sound of melancholy in Judith Hermann’s prose is caused by, among others things, numerous intermedial references to pop music throughout her works. By making use of explicit references to an alternative set of pop cultural pieces, the author adds another plot-constituting layer to her prose and compensates for the characters’ sparse communication. Through her intermedial references, Hermann represents a generational cohort of protagonists with a middle-class background and a certain ideological inclination. Through her choice of a specific repertoire of shared cultural memory, she establishes a connection to a specific readership. Analysing different examples of Hermann’s references to pop music, this article argues that music becomes a means of evoking a sense of belonging and solidarity despite the seeming increase of solitariness in times of globalization. Hermann depicts the medial constitution of contemporary perceptions of everyday life and the appropriation of music by her characters, through which they compose their own individual soundtracks to their lives. The lack of a commentary on the songs’ historical background seemingly leaves the reader with a mere passing sound of melancholy. However, by making selective use of specific references to pop music, Hermann places her prose in a globalized context and creates a kind of musical frame which overcomes typical German themes and re-semanticizes pop music in connection to the literary text.

  • Transcultural Novels and Translating Cultures: François Cheng’s Le Dit
           de Tianyi and L’Éternité n’est pas de trop
    • Authors: Li S.
      First page: 179
      Abstract: This article examines the two French-language novels by the Franco-Chinese migrant writer François Cheng, Le Dit de Tianyi (1998) and L’Éternité n'est pas de trop (2002), and proposes to conceptualize them as two novelistic models of cultural translation. Cheng’s engagement with, and departure from, canonical Western novelistic models such as Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu in Le Dit reveals his ‘comparatist’ ambition to reorient Western cultural heritage by putting it into dialogue with that of the East. L’Éternité, on the other hand, is primarily concerned with a translingual rewriting of Chinese literary traditions such as that of classical romance. While the first model applies principles of analogy, the second reflects a more traditional conception of translation that emphasizes faithfulness and authenticity. The two models are mutually complementary rather than exclusive. The study pays special attention to Cheng’s ‘Chinese-inked’ French language and style, highlighting the aesthetic innovations and challenges in Cheng’s transcultural writings.

  • The Dangers of Harmony: German Romantic Thought in Angela Carter’s The
           Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman
    • Authors: Neilly J.
      First page: 200
      Abstract: Angela Carter’s reception of German Romantic philosophy is one important aspect of her commitment to deconstructing and revising Western literary tradition. In The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman (1972), Carter suggests that the Romantic ideals of harmony and transcendence limit personal freedom, and that the Romantic imagination is not as liberating as its champions claim. This is illustrated through the protagonist Desiderio, whose fragmented sense of self arises from his liminal position as a mixed-race inhabitant of a postcolonial nation. His yearning for a clear identity is characteristic of the Romantic desire for a lost harmony, but Carter criticizes this European philosophy for its potential to mythologize a dangerous formof self-sacrifice. The postcolonial context of the novel illustrates the very real dangers that arise when any particular ideology gains the upper hand, and the Romantic desire to unite the world is warped into a vision of control.

  • The Romance of Translation: Tasso’s Gerusalemme liberata in the
           Elizabethan Twilight
    • Authors: Reid J.
      First page: 235
      Abstract: The translations of Tasso’s Gerusalemme liberata by Richard Carew (1594) and Edward Fairfax (1600) import the hybrid genre of the Italian romance epic into the evolving literary polysystem of the English Renaissance. These two significant translations present an intriguing struggle between fidelity to the source text and freedom, which mirrors the friction between epic and romance at the heart of the Gerusalemme liberata. This friction takes shape most clearly in the treatment of the power dynamics of the crusaders vis-à-vis Godfrey and in the translation of the ‘forma altera’ of Armida. While Carew attempts an ‘epic’ translation conforming to the source text, creating a Gerusalemme conquistata-type of translation, Fairfax submits to the allure of Armida and to the romance of translator errancy. To translate this unique hybrid genre is to encounter translation’s process double; in a fundamental sense, translation is romance, and the romance epic is translation.

  • ‘Le propre de l’homme’: Reading Montaigne’s ‘Des cannibales’
           in Context
    • Authors: O’Brien J.
      First page: 220
      Abstract: This article undertakes an ‘embedded reading’ of the term ‘cannibale’ in book 1, chapter 31 of Montaigne’s Essais, bringing out the preconceptions about both the term and the Brazilian natives which Montaigne does so much to revise. Different understandings of ‘cannibale’ and associated terms such ‘barbare’ and ‘sauvage’ are explored, with radically different implications for ‘le propre de l’homme’ to which such descriptors are linked. It is shown that the French Wars of Religion played a major role in undermining distinctions between epithets designating civilized and barbaric, human and inhuman, and Christian and pagan. Three examples of seventeenth-century discussions of ‘Des cannibales’ are provided in order to demonstrate the long-term effects of Montaigne’s work.
