Truth Stranger Than Fiction

Race, Realism, and the U.S. Literary Market Place

Author: Augusta Rohrbach

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 0230107265

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 153

View: 2177

Using the lens of business history to contextualize the development of an American literary tradition, Truth Stranger than Fiction shows how African American literature and culture greatly influenced the development of realism, which remains one of the most significant genres of writing in the United States. More specifically, Truth Stranger than Fiction traces the influences of generic conventions popularized in slave narratives - such as the use of authenticating details, as well as dialect, and a frank treatment of the human body - in later realist writings. As it unfolds, Truth Stranger than Fiction poses and explores a set of questions about the shifting relationship between literature and culture in the United States from 1830-1930 by focusing on the evolving trend of literary realism. Beginning with the question, 'How might slave narratives - heralded as the first indigenous literature by Theodore Parker - have influenced the development of American Literature?' the book develops connections between an emerging literary marketplace, the rise of the professional writer, and literary realism.

Nabokov and His Books

Between Late Modernism and the Literary Marketplace

Author: Duncan White

Publisher: Oxford University Press

At the outbreak of the Second World War Vladimir Nabokov stood on the brink of losing everything all over again. The reputation he had built as the pre-eminent Russian novelist in exile was imperilled. In Nabokov and his Books, Duncan White shows how Nabokov went to America and not only reinvented himself as an American writer but also used the success of Lolita to rescue those Russian books that had been threatened by obscurity. Using previously unpublished and neglected material, White tells the story of Nabokov the professional writer and how he sought to balance his late modernist aesthetics with the demands of a booming American literary marketplace. As Nabokov's reputation grew so he took greater and greater control of how his books were produced, making the material form of the book--including forewords, blurbs, covers--part of the novel. In his later novels, including Pale Fire, Ada, and Transparent Things, the idea of the novelist losing control of his work became the subject of the novels themselves. These plots were replicated in Nabokov's own biography, as he discovered his inability to control the forces the market success of Lolita had unleashed. With new insights into Nabokov's life and work, this book reconceptualises the way we think about one of the most important and influential novelists of the twentieth century.

The Global Novel

Writing the World in the 21st Century

Publisher: N.A

What will 21st century fiction look like? Acclaimed literary critic Adam Kirsch examines some of our most beloved writers, including Haruki Murakami, Elena Ferrante, Roberto Bolano, and Margaret Atwood, to better understand literature in the age of globalization. The global novel, he finds, is not so much a genre as a way of imagining the world, one that allows the novel to address both urgent contemporary concerns -- climate change, genetic engineering, and immigration -- along with timeless themes, such as morality, society, and human relationships. Whether its stories take place on the scale of the species or the small town, the global novel situates its characters against the widest background of the imagination. The way we live now demands nothing less than the global perspective our best novelists have to offer.

Literature and the Creative Economy

Author: Sarah Brouillette

Publisher: Stanford University Press

ISBN: 0804792437

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 248

This book contends that mainstream considerations of the economic and social force of culture, including theories of the creative class and of cognitive and immaterial labor, are indebted to historic conceptions of the art of literary authorship. It shows how contemporary literature has been involved in and has responded to creative-economy phenomena, including the presentation of artists as models of contentedly flexible and self-managed work, the treatment of training in and exposure to art as a pathway to social inclusion, the use of culture and cultural institutions to increase property values, and support for cultural diversity as a means of growing cultural markets. Contemporary writers have tended to explore how their own critical capacities have become compatible with or even essential to a neoliberal economy that has embraced art's autonomous gestures as proof that authentic self-articulation and social engagement can and should occur within capitalism. Taking a sociological approach to literary criticism, Sarah Brouillette interprets major works of contemporary fiction by Monica Ali, Aravind Adiga, Daljit Nagra, and Ian McEwan alongside government policy, social science, and theoretical explorations of creative work and immaterial labor.

Minor Characters Have Their Day

Genre and the Contemporary Literary Marketplace

How do genres develop? In what ways do they reflect changing political and cultural trends? What do they tell us about the motivations and desires of publishers and readers? Combining close readings and formal analysis with a sociology of literary institutions and markets, Minor Characters Have Their Day offers a compelling new approach to genre study and contemporary fiction based on its analysis of the booming genre of novels that transform minor characters from canonical literary texts into the protagonists of new works. Focusing on a crucial yet frequently unacknowledged genre, Jeremy Rosen makes broader claims about the state of contemporary fiction, genre, the consolidation of the publishing industry over recent decades, and the nature of literary characters. Rosen traces the recent surge in "minor-character elaboration" to the late sixties and works like Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea and Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. These early examples often reflect the desire to recover the voices of marginalized individuals and groups. As the genre exploded between the 1980s and the present, Rosen argues, its conventional form embodies neoliberal commitments to subjective experience, individual expression, and agency. Minor characters gain a "voice" within these novels, but elite authors well versed in the canon write them, and multinational publishing corporations concerned with maximizing short-term profits covet them. The genre provides large-scale publishers with a reliable recipe that helps them appeal to educated audiences who recognize the prestige of the classics and to identity-based niche markets. In the concluding chapter, Rosen intervenes in the theory of literary character.
