Orhan Pamuk and the Poetics of Fiction

This volume marks an exhilarating tour through the mesmerizing and labyrinthine fictional world of the Nobel Prize-winning Turkish author Orhan Pamuk. Despite being ranked alongside Marquez, Cortazar, Calvino, Borges and Eco, Pamuk is yet to receive due critical attention in the Anglophone world, where he has millions of readers. This book takes the reader on a fascinating ride through Pamuk’s novels from The Silent House, written in the early Eighties, to the recently published The Red Haired Woman. The nine novels that form the focus of this study straddle a period of more than three decades that witnessed the emergence of Pamuk as Turkey’s foremost novelist and a master fabulist. The book details the chemistry of the thematics and architectonics of Pamuk’s craft in a style shorn of dry pedantry and jargon trotting. Examining the intricate pattern of his creative topography in the light of theories ranging from psychoanalysis to spectral criticism, it represents a timely and illuminating contribution to the study of contemporary fiction.

Perspectives on Dance Fusion in the Caribbean and Dance Sustainability

This volume examines the theme of fusion in Caribbean dance from a wide range of perspectives, including its socio-cultural-historical formation. The contributions are drawn from a conference entitled “Caribbean Fusion Dance Works: Rituals of Modern Society”, which focused primarily on the Caribbean as a unique locale. However, chapters on dance fusions in other diasporic locations and the sustainability of dance as an art form are also included here in order to offer a sense of an inevitable and, in some instances, desirable evolution due to the globalizing forces that continue to influence dance.

Phenomenological Approaches to Intersubjectivity and Values

Phenomenology’s remarkable insights are still largely overlooked when it comes to contemporary debate concerning values in general. This volume addresses this gap, bringing together papers on the phenomenology of intersubjectivity. What makes it special and distinct from similar texts, however, is its reliance on the axiological—that is, the ethical and existential—dimension of phenomenology’s account of intersubjectivity. All the great phenomenologists (Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Emmanuel Levinas) are covered here, as are lesser-known thinkers in the Anglo-American world, such as Max Scheler and Gabriel Marcel. As such, this book will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in phenomenology, existential philosophy, continental philosophy, sociality, and values.

Proceedings of the Third Purdue Linguistics, Literature and Second Language Studies Conference

This collection brings together scholarship in theoretical and applied linguistics, literary and cultural studies, and second language studies. The contributors here investigate the nature of linguistic, cultural, and cognitive diversity, offering rich insights for theoretical advancement in multiple disciplines. Their theoretical and practical explications on discourse, literature, and linguistic structure contribute to a multifaceted conversation about diversity in language structure and use. From the relationships between eye contact and mindfulness, to the question of the universality of critical thinking, the topics in this volume represent a wide variety of approaches to the study of language.Specific areas in which advances are made here include sociolinguistics, second language pedagogy, and literature studies.

Story by Story

This volume brings together two authors, one a psychiatrist, one a philosopher, to listen to one another’s reading of five stories of what it’s like to bear a different mental or physical illness. The beginning story, or anchor, for the conversation that unfolds between them is that of a person subject to recurring spells of catatonia, the uncanniest of human conditions. They discover that truly understanding what an illness is calls for understanding it within the context of who suffers it, that to understand illness is to establish the right relation between what is being suffered and who is suffering it. This deceptively simple way of talking, which is labelled who/what talk, will prove more practical and more clarifying than will terms like “mental” and “physical.” Furthermore, it has this additional dividend: it intrinsically resists a temptation toward medical prejudice—the inclination for doctors and other caregivers to lose the who of the sufferer through their focus on the what of her illness.

The Cyprus Detention Camps

Beginning in August 1946, stateless and visaless Jews—most of them survivors of the Nazi death camps—who sought to immigrate to the Land of Israel were intercepted by the Royal Navy and deported to the nearby island of Cyprus, where they were detained in camps surrounded by barbed wire. Despite occupying a dramatic and fateful position in modern history, this saga has remained largely inaccessible due to the widespread dispersal of the primary sources and the linguistic difficulties presented by them. To address these problems, this book scrutinizes the scholarly literature, consulting hundreds of primary sources—many of them previously unknown—on three continents, bringing together interviews with scores of eyewitnesses, and translating foreign-language terms into English. The result is a comprehensive, meticulously footnoted guide that uses such tools as maps, a detailed timeline, and biographical entries to make this riveting saga accessible to a broad audience of scholars and general readers.

The Development of Tropes in Arabic Wine Poetry up to the 12th Century AD

This book explores the theory of the evolution of poetic imagery as developed by Joseph Sadan, showing how metaphors were taken over by one poet from another on the basis of existing stores of imagery. It follows the development of the wine imagery used by poets from pre-Islamic times until the days of Abo Nuwas. It deals with how metaphors, especially those used to describe the vessels associated with wine, such as jugs, cups, wine skins and others, evolved over time, and how poets took the imagery used by their predecessors and built on them to create new metaphors.

The Duel between Sir Alexander Boswell and James Stuart

Sir Alexander Boswell (1775-1822) wrote Scottish songs that are still performed today, such as “Jenny’s Bawbee”. An extravagant character and a Tory, he wrote flagrant lampoons of his Whig opponents. One of them greatly incensed his Whig cousin James Stuart of Dunearn, who challenged him to a duel in which Boswell was killed. At his trial for murder, Stuart was represented as a peaceable man unaccustomed to the use of firearms. Nothing could be further from the truth. He served in the militia, was irascible and, at times, violent. This book tells the compelling stories of the remarkable tangled events that led to their quarrel. The duel marked a turning point in Scottish politics away from a turbulent and fractious past to a quieter future. The Whigs triumphed, paving the way for liberal Scotland. In addition, this volume includes, for the first time, many of Boswell’s poems and witty lampoons.

The Fairy-Tale Vanguard

Ever since its early modern inception as a literary genre unto its own, the fairy tale has frequently provided authors with a textual space in which to reflect on the nature, status and function of their own writing and that of literature in general. At the same time, it has served as an ideal laboratory for exploring and experimenting with the boundaries of literary convention and propriety. While scholarship pertaining to these phenomena has focused primarily on the fairy-tale adaptations and deconstructions of postmodern(ist) writers, this essay collection adopts a more diachronic approach. It offers fairy-tale scholars and students a series of theoretical and literary-historical expositions, as well as case studies on English, French, German, Swedish, Danish, and Romanian texts from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century, by authors as diverse as Marie-Catherine d’Aulnoy, Rikki Ducornet, Hans Christian Andersen and Robert Coover.
