Download The Picador Book Of Contemporary American Stories books, ‘Wolff’s collection takes us from north to south, from east to west, from ocean to desert to forest, from farmstead to city, from suburb to main streets, from home to Vietnamese jungle; its diversity is as impressive as its quality. It’s a substantial achievement: an engrossing, affecting, provoking, richly satisfying volume, the magic of which will endure even when it’s lost the “contemporary” in its title’ Scotsman ‘There can be no more readable book . . . More than seven hundred pages of mesmeric story-telling, by forty-two of the best writers to have emerged from the US over the past fifteen years . . . This is a wonderful book’ Scotland on Sunday ‘In making his choice of contemporary American short stories, Tobias Wolff has remained true to what he believes is the predominantly realist strain of American fiction . . . this is a thick, satisfying volume: I can’t find a story that hits a wrong note’ Erica Wagner, The Times

Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature

Book by Berthold Schoene, Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature books, The Edinburgh Companion to Contemporary Scottish Literature examines the ways in which the cultural and political role of Scottish writing has changed since the country's successful referendum on national self-rule in 1997. In doing so, it makes a convincing case for a distinctive post-devolution Scottish criticism. Introducing over forty original essays under four main headings - 'Contexts', 'Genres', 'Authors' and 'Topics' - the volume covers the entire spectrum of current interests and topical concerns in the field of Scottish studies and heralds a new era in Scottish writing, literary criticism and cultural theory. It records and critically outlines prominent literary trends and developments, the specific political circumstances and aesthetic agendas that propel them, as well as literature's capacity for envisioning new and alternative futures. Issues under discussion include class, sexuality and gender, nationhood and globalisation, the New Europe and cosmopolitan citizenship, postcoloniality,

Edinburgh Companion To Twentieth Century Scottish Literature

Book by Ian Brown, Edinburgh Companion To Twentieth Century Scottish Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Edinburgh Companion To Twentieth Century Scottish Literature books, This volume considers the major themes, texts and authors of Scottish literature of the twentieth and, so far, twenty-first century. It identifies the contexts and impulses that led Scottish writers to adopt their creative literary strategies. Moving beyond traditional classifications, it draws on the most recent critical approaches to open up new perspectives on Scottish literature since 1900. The volume's innovative thematic structure ensures that the most important texts or authors are seen from different perspectives whether in the context of empire, renaissance, war and post-war, literary genre, generation, and resistance. In order to provide thorough coverage, these thematic chapters are complemented by chronological 'Arcade' chapters, which outline the contexts of the literature of the period by decades, and by 'Overview' chapters which trace developments across the century in theatre, language and Gaelic literature. Taken together, the chapters provide a thorough and thought-provoking account of the century's literature.

Relevant Worlds

Book by Ewa Wałaszewska, Relevant Worlds Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Relevant Worlds books, The present volume examines Relevance Theory, one of the most influential pragmatic approaches to communication rooted in human cognition, by testing both its internal coherence and its applicability to such forms of communication as translation and literature. Part I addresses a wide range of issues which, over recent years, have been of central interest to pragmatists, including relevance theorists, but may well appeal to readers less familiar with pragmatic theory. The papers discuss selected pragmatic phenomena as diverse as conversational humour, politeness, echoicity, garden-path utterances, the explicit-implicit distinction and the role of inferential processes in communication, with a view to applying, evaluating and revisiting the basic tenets of Relevance Theory. Part II is devoted to various aspects of translation. The papers test the applicability of Relevance Theory, depending on the subject, the genre and the aim of the given translation. Most of the articles analyse specific areas of translation practice, for example the translation of popular science, legal texts, film and fiction. A collection of papers on varied linguistic and cultural phenomena, this book will be a valuable resource for scholars and students of pragmatics (including cognitive and experimental pragmatics), semantics, sociolinguistics and Translation Studies.

Scottish Literature In English And Scots

Book by Douglas Gifford, Scottish Literature In English And Scots Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Scottish Literature In English And Scots books, This substantial new volume is a stimulating yet in-depth introduction to Scottish literature in English and Scots. From medieval to modern, the entire range of literature is introduced, examined and explored. Aimed primarily at those with an interest in Scottish literature, this guide also responds to the need for students and teachers to have detailed discussions of individual authors and texts. The volume looks at Scottish literature in six period sections: Early Scottish Literature, Eighteenth-Century, The Age of Scott, Victorian and Edwardian, The Twentieth-Century Scottish Literary Renaissance, and Scottish Literature since 1945. Each section begins with an overview of the period, followed by several chapters examining exemplary authors and texts. Each section finishes with an extensive discussion including suggestions as to how to further explore the rich and often neglected hinterlands of Scottish writing. Extensive reading lists identify primary texts of the period as well as details of a wide range of additional authors. Opening up neglected areas of study as well as responding to the burgeoning interest in novelists, modern poets and dramatists, this book serves as an invaluable guide to Scottish Literature.
