Kendrick, Christopher: Utopia, Carnival, and Commonwealth in Renaissance England, University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division, ISBN: 0802089364
leichte Lagerspuren Editorial Reviews\n\nReview\n'This is a brilliant book. Its breadth of conception is remarkable, and that breadth is buoyed by deft and meticulous address to utopian imaginings from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. Its ground-breaking rhetorical achievement is to have side-stepped the Cold-War binary of utopia and dystopia and to have opened the analysis of utopia to new lines of inquiry.' Joseph Loewenstein, Department of English, Washington University in St. Louis; 'Christopher Kendrick's series of scrupulously well-informed readings constitutes one of the most important contributions to literary criticism, literary history, and critical theory that I have read in a number of years; it is surely the most important contribution to the theory of utopia since the landmark work of Louis Marin and Fredric Jameson. Kendrick is one of those unfortunately rare critics who combine the most sophisticated theoretical rigor with the most minute and thorough scholarship. This brilliant work is indispensable.' Carl Freedman, Department of English, Louisiana State University\n\nProduct Description\n\nWith the emergence of utopia as a cultural genre in the sixteenth century, a dual understanding of alternative societies, as either political or literary, took shape. In Utopia, Carnival, and Commonwealth in Renaissance England, Christopher Kendrick argues that the chief cultural-discursive conditions of this development are to be found in the practice of carnivalesque satire and in the attempt to construct a valid commonwealth ideology. Meanwhile, the enabling social-political condition of the new utopian writing is the existence of a social class of smallholders whose unevenly developed character prevents it from attaining political power equivalent to its social weight.\n\nIn a detailed reading of Thomas More's Utopia, Kendrick argues that the uncanny dislocations, the incongruities and blank spots often remarked upon in Book II's description of Utopian society, amount to a way of discovering uneven development, and that the appeal of Utopian communism stems from its answering the desire of the smallholding class (in which are to be numbered European humanists) for unity and power. Subsequent chapters on Rabelais, Nashe, Marlowe, Bacon, Shakespeare, and others show how the utopian form engages with its two chief discursive preconditions, carnival and commonwealth ideologies, while reflecting the history of uneven development and the smallholding class. Utopia, Carnival, and Commonwealth in Renaissance England makes a novel case for the social and cultural significance of Renaissance utopian writing, and of the modern utopia in general. , ISBN-13: 9780802089366

1. Auflage Lang, Peter Bern, 2007. Paperback Politics; Utopia; Dystopia; Feminism; Post-secularism; Utopie[DNB]; Sozialphilosophie[DNB]; Aufsatzsammlung[DNB] Informed by feminist, Marxist, ethnographic, and post-structuralist frameworks, Utopia Method Vision makes a unique contribution to international debates in cultural, literary, sociological, and political studies of utopian theory, texts, and practices.The collection addresses the ways in which the contributors approach their study of the objects and practices of utopianism (understood as social anticipations and visions produced through texts and social experiments) and of how, in turn, those objects and practices have shaped their intellectual work in general and their research perspectives in particular. In so doing, the contributors develop a larger, self-critical look at the limits and potential of the entire paradigm by which utopianism is known, studied, critiqued, created, and received.Contents: Tom Moylan/Raffaella Baccolini: Introduction: Utopia as Method - Lucy Sargisson: The Curious Relationship Between Politics and Utopia - Ruth Levitas: The Imaginary Reconstitution of Society: Utopia as Method - Vincent Geoghegan: Political Theory, Utopia, Post-Secularism - Gregory Claeys: Rethinking Modern British Utopianism: Community and the Mastery of Desire - Phillip E.
