Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: "Contemporary British Fiction: History and the Present provides critical insights into fiction´s interventions in the remaking of British culture in the period of rapid and radical political, economic and cultural changes after the 1960s. These transformations have juxtaposed a sense of belonging and increasing alienation in a society where the predominant white colour is merging into different shades of humanity, within the reality of mass-scale immigration.The book contains critical readings of some of the leading British novelists. Changed political atmosphere in the post-empire and post-war era, and newly emergent social plurality have, as the editors argue in the Introduction, foregrounded the awareness of postcolonial anxieties, nostalgia and the multicultural nature of the English society. Scholars like Jasbir Jain, Prafulla C. Kar, R.K. Kaul, Sudha Rai, Rajul Bhargava, Veena Singh, Santosh Gupta, Mini Nanda, Joya Chakravarty, and Preeti Bhatt explore the themes of history, problems of (un)belonging among the native and non-native writers, form and meaning, values and structures, in the works of Graham Swift, Julian Barnes, Caryl Phillips, and Angus Wilson. The rewriting of ancient phallocentric myths by women writers, and the popularity of children´s literature, has been explored as also the defining of the self, which requires new strategies of reading, writing and new locations within the cultural space. Subversive techniques and language in the works of Angela Carter, Muriel Spark, A.S. Byatt, Michèle Roberts, Margaret Drabble, Doris Lessing and J.K. Rowling reflect the destabilizing impact of such works. Popular visual forms like film also interpret the changing emotional attitudes towards history-past and the present. The essays focus on texts that have already become canonical in modern literature. It is hoped that these new readings will open up new discussion, dialogue and further interpretations."

Buchbeschreibung Penguin Books : London, 1998. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut - From 1950 to 1999, the fiction genre of Ladlit presented British readers with a romantic, comic, popular male literature, which was regarded as a chance to examine male identity in contemporary Britain. But by the beginning of the 21st century one was seeking for a new story of masculine identity. In the meantime, there has been a focus on masculinity in language and gender studies, whereas the exclusive attention had formerly been upon femininity. The tradition of man being constituted in terms of universal, normative values has led to the phenomenon of invisible masculinity . However, there has always been a discourse availableto men which allows them to represent themselves as people or mankind.The book examines how the representation of masculinities has changed in society in the recent fifty years. Using different theories of gender studies, masculinities and the effects of socio-economical changes, the following novels will be discussed: Amis s Lucky Jim (1954), Sillitoe s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1958), Hollinghurst s The Swimming-Pool Library (1988) and Hornby s About a Boy (1998).The book especially addresses scholars of Literature and Social Sciences. 0 pp. Englisch.

Buchbeschreibung Universitätsverlag Winter Feb 2007, 2007. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - While teaching is increasingly on the agenda for higher education administration and funding bodies, the overwhelming trend here is towards generic pedagogic practices with little sensitivity to discipline-specific questions. Although in literary studies a debate around this question is beginning, on the whole it remains too separate from the questions which really fuel the field. Based on a one-day conference, Teaching Contemporary British Fiction, organized by the UK Network for Modern Fiction Studies in conjunction with the University of Westminster in May 2004, this collection tackles the underdiscussed issue of literature pedagogy by focusing on the teaching of contemporary British fiction. Dealing with a broad range of literary texts as well as with crucial issues and problems involved in teaching them, the contributions address not only the salient and current debates in the discipline (e.g. the role and identity of the academic teacher or the question of canon formation) but demonstrate the didactic dimensions of contemporary British fiction by making practical suggestions on teaching it. 210 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783825352882

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing PLC Okt 2017, 2017. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - How did social, cultural and political events in Britain during the 2000s shape contemporary British fiction The means of publishing, buying and reading fiction changed dramatically between 2000 and 2010. This volume explores how the socio-political and economic turns of the decade, bookended by the beginning of a millennium and an economic crisis, transformed the act of writing and reading. Through consideration of, among other things, the treatment of neuroscience, violence, the historical and youth subcultures in recent fiction, the essays in this collection explore the complex and still powerful relation between the novel and the world in which it is written, published and read.This major literary assessment of the fiction of the 2000s covers the work of newer voices such as Monica Ali, Mark Haddon, Tom McCarthy, David Peace and Zadie Smith as well as those more established, such as Salman Rushdie, Hilary Mantel and Ian McEwan making it an essential contribution to reading, defining and understanding the decade. 312 pp. Englisch.

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing PLC Okt 2017, 2017. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - How did social, cultural and political events in Britain during the 1970s shape Contemporary British Fiction Exploring the impact of events like the Cold War, miners' strikes and Winter of Discontent, this volume charts the transition of British fiction from post-war to contemporary.Chapters outline the decade's diversity of writing, showing how the literature of Ian McEwan and Ian Sinclair interacted with the experimental work of B.S. Johnson. Close contextual readings of Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish and English novels map the steady break-up of Britain. Tying the popularity of Angela Carter and Fay Weldon to the growth of the Women's Liberation Movement and calling attention to a new interest in documentary modes of autobiographical writing, this volume also examines the rising resonance of the marginal voices: the world of 1970s British Feminist fiction and postcolonial and diasporic writers.Against a backdrop of social tensions, this major critical reassessment of the 1970s defines, explores and better understands the criticism and fiction of a decade marked by the sense of endings. 288 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781350003507
