Book Summary:

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition of The Time Machine includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Wells? vision of the future.As he approached the turn of the twentieth century, H.G. Wells explored the implications of the rising tide of Socialism and Darwin?s theory of evolution to envision a future?800,000 years from his own day?in which suffering, death, and human labor seem to have been replaced by beauty, peace, and innocent play. What Wells? unnamed Time Traveller ultimately comes to discover, however, are the horrific truths of a new Humanity, split and evolved into two separate races living in a false Paradise that actually fosters idiocy, weakness, and mortal terror. Originally written in 1898, The Time Machine examines the age-old questions of humankind?s ultimate destiny and the role we play in shaping it.

Book Summary:

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Wells? vocabulary, use of science, and British references.Originally written for a magazine in 1897, The War of the Worlds became an instant, popular favorite. Long before our modern fascination with flying saucers and brightly glowing UFOs, H. G. Wells anticipated a close encounter between puny Earthlings and seemingly all-powerful Martians.A flash of light observed coming from the red planet sets the stage for a terrifying invasion, against which Earth?s modern weapons are useless. Throughout the epic battle, Wells points out that humans just might not have the talent or ability to defeat an extraterrestrial rival. Could we become slaves to a race of alien monsters? Will their heat-ray destroy all of London and decimate the rest of civilization? Can one man save the world? The War of the Worlds is a science fiction masterpiece that has fascinated us for more than a century, through at least three different movies, the infamous Orson Welles radio broadcast, and even a Broadway musical. Few books have captured the popular imagination as forcefully as this H. G. Wells novel.

Book Summary:

Characterized by oral expression and ritual performance, the black church has been a dynamic force in African American culture. In The Sermon and the African American Literary Imagination, Dolan Hubbard explores the profound influence of the sermon upon both the themes and the styles of African American literature. Beginning with an exploration of the historic role of the preacher in African American culture and fiction, Hubbard examines the church as a forum for organizing black social reality. Like political speeches, jazz, and blues, the sermon is an aesthetic construct, interrelated with other aspects of African American cultural expression. Arguing that the African American sermonic tradition is grounded in a self-consciously collective vision, Hubbard applies this vision to the themes and patterns of black American literature. With nuanced readings of the work of Frederick Douglass, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, James Weldon Johnson, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, Hubbard reveals how the African American sermonic tradition has influenced black American prose fiction. He shows how African American writers have employed the forms of the black preaching style, with all their expressive power, and he explores such recurring themes as the quest for freedom and literacy, the search for identity and community, the lure of upward mobility, the fictionalizing of history, and the use of romance to transform an oppressive history into a vision of mythic transcendence. The Sermon and the African American Literary Imagination is a major addition to the fields of African American literary and religious studies.

Book Summary:

This collection of essays offers a series of fresh and authoritative readings of most of the more important prose writers, and taken as a whole, a major reassessment of the American tradition in prose fiction. Each of the contributors has an enthusiastic and informed interest in the writer discussed and attempts both to characterize that writer's achievement and to offer a new perspective on his or her work. The book begins with a discussion of James Fenimore Cooper, the founding father of the American novel, and ends with an account of Norman Mailer, whose varied and adventurous writings perhaps best illustrate the conflicting forces at work in contemporary American fiction. In between there are essays on Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry James, Theodore Dreiser, Willa Cather, Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and Richard Wright. Attention is paid to context, the social and historical circumstances with which each writer had to engage, but the main emphasis is on the texts themselves, their language, narrative structure, the experience of reading them-and, not least, on the place they occupy in the American literary landscape (cover).

Callahan, this Modern Library Paperback Classic includes posthumously discovered reviews, criticism, and interviews, as well as the essay collections Shadow and Act (1964), hailed by Robert Penn Warren as “a body of cogent and subtle commentary on the questions that focus on race,” and Going to the Territory (1986), an exploration of literature and folklore, jazz and culture, and the nature and quality of lives that black Americans lead. “Ralph Ellison,” wrote Stanley Crouch, “reached across race, religion, class and sex to make us all Americans.”

Book Summary:

From the heart of the Great Depression to the turbulent 1960s, the mid-century in America was a vibrant literary era. Linda Wagner-Martin's comprehensive study encompasses the "political literature" that flourished in the 1930s, the beat movement of the 1950s, and the multicultural literature of the 1960s. Wagner-Martin includes in her critical consideration African-American women writers, Jewish writers, and gay and lesbian writers who have been unjustly forgotten in earlier assessments of this period. The inclusion of popular writers in such genres as detective fiction also adds to the depth of this study. Wagner-Martin takes a comprehensive view of a period that falls between the more commonly studies modern and contemporary periods.

Book Summary:

Having published only one novel, Ralph Ellison gained and retained a reputation as one of America's premier authors. Though urged by his admirers and by critics to write more, at the time of his death in 1994 Ellison's renown rested upon a novel published in the 1950s. He remained at the peak of his eminence, acclaimed principally for this single work. But this astonishing book was Invisible Man, one of the cornerstones of modern American literature. In these interviews the author of this masterpiece proves himself intellectually vigorous, witty, and sometimes combative. These conversations about himself and about literature show him to be strongly independent, whether his remarks consider race, art, writing, or culture.

Book Summary:

Teaching Literature as Reflective Practice speaks to all those teachers who teach the "gen ed" literature course that their students must take to complete a general education or core curriculum requirement. These students-the 95 percent who are not English majors-are the students we hope will become active and reflective members of a reading public. Given this goal, Kathleen Blake Yancey outlines a course located in reflective practice and connected to readings in the world. The course invites students to theorize about their own reading practices, about how literature is made, and about texts and their relationships to culture more generally. Such a course also encourages students to think about what places and occasions in the world are poetic, about the role of not-understanding in coming to understand literature, and about technological forms of literacy, such as multimedia pop-ups that link associatively to multiple contexts. In addition to cogent reflections on the realities of lived, delivered, and experienced curricula, Yancey defines, illustrates, and analyzes two kinds of literature portfolio-print and electronic-and shows how each fosters a particular kind of learning and leads to specific assessment practices.--Publisher.
