  • Styles of Reasoning in Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground and
           Sōseki's Kokoro
    • Abstract: The relation between philosophy and literature is a topic on which there is a vast scholarship: some recent titles that survey the terrain compactly include The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Literature; Peter Swirski's Literature, Analytically Speaking; A Companion to the Philosophy of Literature; Ilya Kliger's The Narrative Shape of Truth; and Anthony Cascardi's The Cambridge Introduction to Literature and Philosophy, not an exhaustive but a selective list.1 Some of the questions most frequently explored in such scholarly works include but are not limited to whether literature has the potential to represent truths, and if so what kind of truths; what kind of existence literary characters have, and the extent ...

  • Cultural Self-Discovery in Vasco Pires's Trilingual Poetry
    • Abstract: Studies show that many immigrants to the United States experience a serious "crisis of identity" and tremendous "bicultural stress."1 The dominant culture, a ubiquitous and relentless influence, alienates them from their ethnic identity and community, creating an "existential vacuum" that causes "social, economic, and cultural insecurity," as well as "a sense of personal annihilation, and possibly a sense of emptiness and meaninglessness in the life of the immigrant."2 Often, first-generation immigrants, including those from the Cape Verde islands, willingly pay this price to achieve the proverbial American Dream. Even those who resist acculturation eventually endure some existential angst and social ... Read More

  • Borges Reads Machado: A Translation of "A Cartomante" in Revista
           Multicolor De los Sábados
    • Abstract: Brazilian writer Machado de Assis and Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges are two fundamental names for what became known as Latin American literature. This is the usual assessment made by critics when they come to compare the authors. Moreover, critics use Machado and Borges to expand and review the canon of world literature. These estimations fail to establish and analyze possible similarities between their literary productions, or even to examine the direct connection between these two writers as historical figures. In other words, there is a lack of relevant critical comparisons vis-à-vis intertextual relations between their narratives, that is, the presence of Machado in Borges, or Borges in Machado. Machado ... Read More

  • Voices of Rousseau and Temporality in Friedrich Hölderlin's "Der
           Rhein"
    • Abstract: Several generations of literary critics have noted that Jean-Jacques Rousseau was for Friedrich Hölderlin an exemplary writer, one who gave voice to modern self-consciousness. In his hymn "Der Rhein," explicit references to Rousseau's Reveries of the Solitary Walker enable readers to follow the formation of consciousness in language. In one of the most influential analyses of the poem, Paul de Man argues that Rousseau reveals that God exists within us as a language and it is language that furnishes us with a mediate form of contact with the divine.1 For de Man, the turn to contemplative repose rescues Rousseau from the hubristic temptation to become god-like. By recognizing the sacred source of language in his ... Read More

  • Plotting New Womanhood on Either Side of the Channel: A comparison of
           Tinayre's La Rebelle and Dixon's The Story of a Modern Woman
    • Abstract: On a desk in the offices of the magazine Le Monde féminin, featured in Marcelle Tinayre's 1905 novel, La Rebelle, a mimosa branch sits between "l'encrier et le pot à colle" (the inkstand and the gluepot).1 This juxtaposition offers a glimpse of the conflicts at work in the representation of gender and career in this early twentieth-century novel. The femininity and fertility evoked by the mimosa and its falling pollen are set alongside the tools required for journalism; independence and career intersect with reminders of the literary romance plot, evoked by floral decorations. Similar descriptive detail is provided in Ella Hepworth Dixon's 1894 novel, The Story of a Modern Woman, which recounts the life of a young ... Read More

  • Surfaces for Practices in Kanai Mieko's When Treading on Soft Earth,:
           Translating Sensation from Screen to Novel
    • Abstract: In Mitsou: quarante images par Baltusz (1921; trans., Mitsou: Forty Images by Balthus, 1984), a picture book whose Japanese translation1 has been reviewed by novelist Kanai Mieko (b. 1947)2, a boy named Balthasar Klossowski (to become Balthus [1908–2001]) sketches himself in desperate search of his beloved eponymous cat that has gone missing. Though the boy's search ultimately proves fruitless, images of the missing cat proliferate along the way. In the last picture, the boy sheds copious tears, made visible to us in an almost cartoonish manner. The eyes that oversaw the process of drawing Mitsou's figure, and that once looked at the cat and then looked for her in the void she had left behind, are, through a ... Read More

  • The Intrusive "I" in Translations of Italian Librettos
    • Abstract: Recent decades have witnessed a significant increase in publications on libretto translations that, profiting from a consolidated interdisciplinary approach to opera, reflect an awareness of the closely knit weft of lyrics, music, and staging.1 Irrespective of whether the perspective is general, theoretical, historicist, or that of a specific work, many inroads have been made into areas such as the singability of the translation2 and the advantages and disadvantages of surtitles.3 When research has focused more on the text itself, it has mainly explored how the strategies used by translators reflect the target audiences for the translations. It is hardly surprising, therefore, in this hermeneutic orbit, that ... Read More

  • Where is World Literature Now': Conversations Over Time and Across
           Space
    • Abstract: "What are we to make of world literature today'" David Damrosch asks toward the beginning of his introduction to the recently published anthology, World Literature in Theory. Taken together, Damrosch's anthology and Rebecca Walkowitz's critical study Born Translated provide occasion to reflect on how the fields of Comparative Literature and World Literature have developed and where they now are. A number of themes and concerns emerge in these works: a challenge to distinct national literary traditions and increasing attention to interactions between traditions; ways in which texts travel and circulate in new contexts; debates about depth and breadth of knowledge (expertise and dilettantism) within fields of study; ...

  • The Ethnic Avant-Garde: Minority Cultures and World Revolution by Steven
           S. Lee (review)
    • Abstract: Steven S. Lee's The Ethnic Avant-Garde: Minority Cultures and World Revolution (2015) presents readers with a comparative study of twentieth-century avant-gardism via an extensive historical description of emergent claims by both Soviet and American poets and artists on "authenticity." Through examples ranging from poetry, theatre, and film, Lee develops a complex portrait of "authenticity" at two critical moments in the twentieth century. The first, which the book's treatment of prewar modernism lays out, argues a cultural authenticity in the era of global capitalist citizenship as a simultaneous turn to aesthetic authenticity. Later in the twentieth century, however, Lee observes how "competing understandings of ... Read More

  • Salvage Work: U.S. and Caribbean Literatures amid the Debris of Legal
           Personhood by Angela Naimou (review)
    • Abstract: Angela Naimou's Salvage Work: U.S. and Caribbean Literatures amid the Debris of Legal Personhood develops a method of reading contemporary aesthetic practices of the Americas as a response to current and past forms of legal personhood. Tracing the remnants of past legal categories among the subjectivities presented in the legal, literary, and visual imaginations of the United States and the Caribbean, Naimou offers a provocative response to current "death-bound" theories of human rights and the law, or approaches that focus on the irrecoverability of the archive of slavery, to advocate for new languages with which to engage ethically with the different legal masks through which human beings are either sheltered or ...

  • The Pan American Imagination: Contested Visions of the Hemisphere in
           Twentieth-Century Literature by Stephen M. Park (review)
    • Abstract: This work of literary and cultural criticism is labeled as "Caribbean Studies" on the cover, but its broad, bilingual scope is, as the title suggests, an example of the "Hemispheric turn" in American Studies (5). Mexico is as important to the study as the Caribbean, and not only European but also indigenous and African influences are discussed. For Park, "including a multiplicity of voices and scholars is a fundamental step toward thinking outside the logic of US-centered modernity at work during the Pan American era" (232). The latter epoch (1910–41 [3]) is given heuristic cohesion through two opposing images: the House of the Americas in Washington, D.C., the home of the US-led Pan American Union (PAU) (1), and ...

  • Commonplaces: The Poetics of African Atlantic Postromantics by Seanna
           Sumalee Oakley (review)
    • Abstract: Seanna Sumalee Oakley's book, The Poetics of African Atlantic Post-Romantics, offers an insightful study of how twentieth-century African and Caribbean writers reactivate the foundational narratives of romantic and modern utopian universalisms. Oakley's analyses hinge upon a nuanced comparison between the poetics associated with some of the most relevant African Atlantic contemporary writers of the second half of the twentieth century, and their nineteenth-century Romantic European counterparts. She compares them both in terms of their reiteration of Romantic utopian motifs and the subtle but crucial differences in their recourse to the notion of enlightened universality.Oakley achieves this by moving her ...

  • Poetic Trespass: Writing between Hebrew and Arabic in Israel/Palestine by
           Lital Levy (review)
    • Abstract: In Poetic Trespass, Lital Levy explores the cultural implications of the Hebrew/Arabic literary encounter in and against the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Levy joins a small group of scholars such as Gil Hochberg, Hannan Hever, and Ami Elad-Bouskila who study the historically vexed, but inextricable and ongoing intertwining of Hebrew and Arabic through the works of both Israeli and Palestinian writers and poets that have not "successfully" conformed to the perimeters of, as Levy has it, the "ethnocentric domain that equates Hebrew with 'Jewish' and Arabic with 'Arab'" (3).Reading against the grain, Levy addresses certain sites within the conflict where Jewish authors of Arab or North African descent ...
