  • The Chinese Stereotypical Signification in Ah Sin
    • Abstract: <p>By Hsin-Yun Ou</p> Combining theatre history and Asian American studies, this essay explores stereotypes on display in Ah Sin, written by Mark Twain in collaboration with Bret Harte. I argue that representations of the Chinese during the eighteen-seventies, as exemplified by the figure of Ah Sin, were more complex than has been acknowledged by most critiques of “yellowface” performance (the practice of white actors impersonating Asians). Sean Metzger has discussed Charles Thomas Parsloe’s performance in Ah Sin, focusing on the actor’s physical predispositions, such as hair style (the queue), costume, and mannerisms, and asserting that”Parsloe animates the Chinaman as a fetish that substitutes for and conceals the dominant anxieties ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.ou.html">Read More</a>

  • The Limits of the Story: Reading the Castaway Narrative in A Strange
           Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder and Life of Pi
    • Abstract: <p>By Daniela Janes</p> Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1817 edition of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner begins with an epigraph from Thomas Burnet's Archaeologiae Philosophiae (The Ancient Doctrine Concerning the Origin of Things, published in 1692) that makes a case for belief in things that cannot be seen or proven. Faith itself, here framed explicitly in terms of belief in "invisible" beings, is valorized for the way it expands the human experience of being in the world, allowing "the soul to contemplate as in a picture the image of a larger and better world, lest the mind, habituated to the small concerns of daily life, limit itself too much and sink entirely into trivial thinking" (qtd. in Coleridge, Rime 567). Coleridge's supernatural ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.janes.html">Read More</a>

  • Embodying the In-Between: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's Dictee
    • Abstract: <p>By Hyo K. Kim</p> Emotion is a certain way of apprehending the world.For over a decade after its initial publication in 1982, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's Dictee languished in cultural obscurity. With its violations of English grammar, use of mixed media, multiple languages, and other seemingly random elements, Dictee's radically disjointed poetics resisted easy identification. It was not until the publication of Writing Self, Writing Nation in 1994, a collection of scholarly essays devoted entirely to Dictee, that Cha's text began to receive critical attention. An oft-quoted passage from Elaine Kim's contribution to that influential collection of essays provides a pointed illustration of Dictee's elusiveness: "The first time I glanced ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.kim.html">Read More</a>

  • The Anti-Hero in Modernist Fiction: From Irony to Cultural Renewal
    • Abstract: <p>By Shadi Neimneh</p> The hollow men speaking in the epigraph are not much different from Eliot’s famous Prufrock, the inadequate modern man whose introspection, selfdeprecation, and hesitation are all emblematic of a new heroism. The hollow men are spiritually and culturally lacking in the substance of traditional heroes. However, they are aware of their communal, representative insignificance during the post-World War I era in Western culture—and even sing it. This lack of traditional heroism, what I call “anti-heroism,” is not particularly modern, as examples can be found in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century literature.1 However, modern anti-heroism in the early twentieth century is a response to the uncertainties of people about ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.neimneh.html">Read More</a>

  • Stalking the Gaps: The Biopoetics of Haiku
    • Abstract: <p>By Ian Marshall</p> Situated on the border of evolutionary psychology and literary studies, evolutionary literary criticism, or “evocriticism,” or “literary Darwinism,” or “biopoetics” (the terms are roughly synonymous, all referring to the application of evolutionary psychology to literary analysis) seeks to explain how literature may arise from and reinforce adaptive traits of the human mind. At the risk of over-simplifying, the argument goes something like this: physical, psychological, or behavioural traits generally have an adaptive purpose in a species. More specifically, they have one of two adaptive purposes: they provide either a survival advantage or an enhancement for sexual selection. Either way, the idea is for an ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.marshall.html">Read More</a>

  • Rhetoric of the Network: Toward a New Metaphor
    • Abstract: <p>By Christopher D. Kilgore</p> The last twenty years have seen increasingly bold proclamations on behalf of a simple analytical concept, the network. M.E.J. Newman and Albert-László Barabási have each devoted several volumes to its application in a variety of disciplinary contexts, championing its flexibility in analyzing complex systems. A wide range of network-based research in disciplines from biology to literature would seem to bear out their assertions, and indeed, this simple cognitive concept—points, or “vertices,” connected by lines, or “edges”—has become one of the dominant linguistic and cognitive figures of contemporary thought. In each individual study, however, its precise standing is less clear. Particularly in the humanities and ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.kilgore.html">Read More</a>

  • Wallace Thurman’s The Blacker the Berry and the Question of the
           Emancipatory City
    • Abstract: <p>By Catherine Rottenberg</p> “There was no place in the world for a girl as black as she,” Emma Lou, the protagonist of Wallace Thurman’s 1929 The Blacker the Berry, despairingly laments. Indeed, Emma Lou is very black, “too black,” as she learns growing up in Boise, Idaho in an African-American community that desperately hopes to get “whiter and whiter every generation” (29). Her grandmother is the founding member of the Boise “blue veins,” an elite circle of black Americans who are fair-skinned enough for their blood to be seen “pulsing purple through the veins of their wrists” (28). But to Emma Lou’s great misfortune—and as a result of her mother’s disastrous marriage to a “full-blooded Negro”—she has been born dark (30). She consequently ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.rottenberg.html">Read More</a>

  • Social Commentary in Coline Serreau’s Saint-Jacques… La
           Mecque
    • Abstract: <p>By Lisa F. Signori</p> The medieval Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela gives spatial, temporal, and thematic structure to Coline Serreau’s 2005 movie and novel, Saint-Jacques… La Mecque, inviting us to look across time and connect the modern pilgrimage experience to its eleven-hundred-year-old predecessor.1 Given the cultural significance that the pilgrimage encompasses, Serreau cannot have chosen it lightly to serve as the setting for this intriguing work in which nine modern pilgrims walk from Le Puy to Santiago. In this essay, I propose to show how Serreau effectively uses the framework of medieval pilgrimage to shed new light and perspective on issues in contemporary French society such as ethnicity, religion, and ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.signori.html">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne McCance</p> In J.M. Coetzee’s The Lives of Animals, his protagonist, Elizabeth Costello, addressing an audience of disinterested but opinionated academics on the subject of animals and the horrors to which they are submitted in today’s factory farming industry, takes strong issue with the discourse of reason, of human rational capacity, that has prevailed in Western thought since the seventeenth century—and that, in contemporary utilitarian and rights-based animal ethics, remains the standard by which to determine “who counts” as having moral worth. Dismissive of the narrowness and anthropocentrism of the rational capacity standard, Costello appeals instead to sympathy, the kind of “sympathetic imagination” that disposes us ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.mccance.html">Read More</a>

  • Feeling, Affect, Exposure: Ethical (In)capacity, the Sympathetic
           Imagination, and J.M. Coetzee’s Disgrace
    • Abstract: <p>By Philip Dickinson</p> The language of the sympathetic imagination attests to the ethical primacy of feeling. But what are the implications of grounding ethics, and even a theory of subjectivity and responsibility, in feeling? For most theorists of the sympathetic imagination, such an ethics produces a compassionate, integrated, operative subject, able to be faithful to her feeling in her worldly interventions. An ethics that privileges feeling, however, might equally appear as an ethics of the incapacitated, an ethics of debilitating affective passivity—of the bleeding heart. This essay considers the rigorous coding of feeling that is usually internal to theories of the sympathetic imagination, before suggesting, through a reading of ... <a href="http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/mosaic/v046/46.4.dickinson.html">Read More</a>
