Book Summary:

With the rise of a succession of sophisticated approaches that largely disregard literature's traditional role as a mirror of life, climate and other environmental factors have been generally disregarded in the interpretation of literary texts during recent decades. For that reason, it is only fitting that the climatological dimension be re-explored after a forty-year hiatus."Climate and Literature embraces a significant revision of the original telluric "notions" about the determinist relationship between climate and the attitudes and behavior of literary characters set in particular surroundings. In place of such vague notions, we find within these pages interesting and stimulating examples of true applied science and contemporary literary theory that more often than not treat literary depiction of climate not so much as a reflection of influence of particular geographic environments, but as a powerful symbol for psychological or textural processes undergone by the novels' characters, narrators or readers."—Dr. Thomas Franz, Ohio State University.

Book Summary:

Critical Encounters addresses a central and long-standing concern in literary criticism and theory: What is the relation between literature and reality, or language and experience? The questions raised by poststructuralist criticism, and particularly deconstruction, concerning the establishment of reference, appear to many readers to involve a dangerous denial of any link between texts and reality: the possibility that reference is indirect seems to mean that we have no reliable access to experience or to history and, therefore, no basis for political action or ethical decision. Drawing on contemporary theories of literature, history, and feminism, the essays in this volume interrogate the assumptions underlying this critique of deconstruction by asking what it would mean to conceive of an experience that is constituted by the very way it escapes or resists comprehension. Taking as their starting point the attempt to rethink fundamental questions of reality and reference, the contributors ultimately ask how we might learn to recognize and to respond to the realities of a history, a politics, and an ethics not based on straightforward understanding.

Book Summary:

By taking an unconventional view of the well-known myth of Theseus, Ariadne, and the Minotaur on Crete, Ariadne's Lives breaks new ground and will cause some controversy. None of the much-heralded myth study coming out of French and American structuralism and psychoanalysis has focused attention on Ariadne's story. Indeed, relatively little work has been done on the Cretan myth cycle as a whole, a mixture of heroic Greek legend and savage, pre-Greek elements generally considered to be antithetical to evolved literary languages. As a result, although Ariadne has been extremely important in Western art from the time of ancient Greece through the nineteenth century, she is rarely included in studies of Greek myth. Like many other Eastern goddesses, Ariadne fell victim to the collision between pre-Greek and Greek cultures and virtually disappeared. Calling upon current methodologies and theories, author Nina daVinci Nichols rereads the Cretan cycle to introduce Ariadne as a subversive model of woman evoked during the nineteenth century renaissance of Greek myth. Then, using the myth as a critical tool, the author examines the most problematic aspects of nineteenth- and twentieth-century masterworks, from romances by Bronte and Hawthorne, to naturalistic novels by Eliot and Hardy, to symbolic work by Ibsen and a series of realistic novels by Lessing. The resulting interpretations provide fresh insights into heroines whose portrayals have tantalized and baffled readers. The book's theoretical underpinnings also offer a fresh approach to feminist argument concerned with the absence of a maternal principle in language, or with "phallocentricity." Throughout the book, Nichols seeks to lay the groundwork for establishing the existence of a feminine or "Ariadne principle" already subsumed in language, although often suppressed by the cultural biases of both authors and their characters. Whereas Greek myth offers many mother or daughter figures, only Ariadne, because of her Cretan and Greek ancestry, has the character of mother, bride, and daughter. She therefore resembles actual women more faithfully than Greek figures traditionally presented as models for literary heroines, if not for life.

Book Summary:

Tobias examines the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, the ascetics of Sinai and Tibet, and the Pure Land Buddhists. He introduces the reader to the Jains of India, whose lifestyle is one of the most ecologically balanced in all of human history. In profiling various artists of 19th-century Europe and America, Tobias discovers incisive continuities among such luminaries as British poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, Austrian impressionist Emilie Mediz-Pelikan, and American intimist painters Ralph Blakelock and George Inness.

Book Summary:

A Plot of Her Own presents compelling new readings of major texts in the Russian literary canon, all of which are readily available in translation. The female protagonists in the works examined are inextricably linked with the fundamental issues raised by the novels they inform; the interpretations offered strive not to be reductive or doctrinaire, not to be imposed from the outside but to arise from the texts themselves and the historical circumstances in which they were written. Authors discussed include Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Bulgakov, and the novels considered range from Fathers and Children to Zamyatin's anti-Utopian We. Throughout, the contributors new visions expand our understanding of the words and reveal new significance in them.
