Consuming Silences

Book by Myles Weber, Consuming Silences Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Consuming Silences books, J. D. Salinger was an author in 1951 when he published The Catcher in the Rye. Is he one now? Was Henry Roth an author during the sixty years that separated Call It Sleep, his literary debut, from his second novel, Mercy of a Rude Stream? To show us how silence can be produced and consumed as a literary text, Myles Weber takes a provocative look at four revered authors who battled writer's block or simply ceased publishing. The careers of Tillie Olsen, Henry Roth, J. D. Salinger, and Ralph Ellison suggest that an unproductive twentieth-century author could command serious critical attention and remain a literary celebrity by offering the public volumes of silence, which became read and admired like any other text. Weber sees periods of nonpublication as texts that are consumed by the literary public--and sometimes produced deliberately by inactive writers and their handlers. However, his aim is not to criticize individual authors but to reveal connections between literature as a commodity and authorship as a profession. As Weber looks at the particular circumstances of each author's silence, he brings to them an understanding of such topics as the cult of celebrity, intellectual property law, the complicity of the media and the academy in engendering and then maintaining an author's silence, and mass production and distribution. By helping us to look in new ways at authorial silence not just as a biographical fact or a creative problem but also as a marketing opportunity, Consuming Silences injects energy into debates about the nature of literary production and the cultural place of authors who do not publish.

Wolfgang Koeppen

Book by Walter Erhart, Wolfgang Koeppen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wolfgang Koeppen books, Das ungeschriebene Hauptwerk des Wolfgang Koeppen - eine exemplarische Studie über das literarische Scheitern. Er wurde zu einem berühmten ›Fall‹ der Literaturgeschichte: ein mutmaßlich nicht mehr schreibender Autor, der die literarische Moderne in Deutschland nach 1945 mit begründete, einen weiteren Roman über Jahrzehnte jedoch verweigerte. Immer noch ungeklärt ist, was sich hinter dem "Fall Koeppen" verbirgt. Walter Erhart sucht die Gründe weder im Privaten noch beteiligt er sich an der Heroisierung eines notwendig nur noch Fragmente produzierenden modernen Dichters. Er liest die Werkgeschichte dieses Autors vielmehr exemplarisch: als Teil einer noch ungeschriebenen Literaturgeschichte des Scheiterns, als Schreibversuch und Erzählexperiment, mit dem Koeppen zugleich an die Grenzen der ästhetisch-literarischen Moderne geriet und deren unfreiwilliges Ende er beschreibt. Erstmals wird Koeppens Werk aus dem Nachlass und dem Archiv rekonstruiert: die Genese eines Schriftstellers aus dem Geist des Fin de Siècle und der Weimarer Republik, das lebenslange und doch vergebliche Bemühen um die Fertigstellung des "großen Romans", der Konflikt widerstreitender Schreib- und Erzählweisen, die Versuche, den Schauplatz der erzählenden Literatur zu verlagern - mit Reiseliteratur, Drehbüchern und Filmen. "Wolfgang Koeppen. Das Scheitern moderner Literatur" enthüllt ein bislang verborgen gebliebenes Kapitel der deutschen Literatur im 20. Jahrhundert. Es ist auch die Geschichte einer an ihrem eigenen ästhetischen Programm scheiternden Moderne, im Gegenzug aber eröffnet dieses Scheitern den Blick auf die Zukunft des Erzählens in einer nachmodernen Welt.

God In Sound And Silence

Book by Danielle Anne Lynch, God In Sound And Silence Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download God In Sound And Silence books, Music, by its indeterminate levels of meaning, poses a necessary challenge to a theology bound up in words. Its distinctive nature as temporal and embodied allows a unique point of access to theological understanding. Yet music does not exist in a cultural vacuum, conveying universal truths, but is a part of the complex nature of human lives. This understanding of music as theology stems from a conviction that music is a theological means of knowing: knowing something indeterminate, yet meaningful. This is an exploration of the means by which music might say something otherwise unsayable, and in doing so, allow for an encounter with the mystery of God.
