Truth And Consequences: Renaud Camus And The Personal, Brian G. Kennelly Apr 2008

Truth And Consequences: Renaud Camus And The Personal, Brian G. Kennelly

Brian G. Kennelly

A year before his untimely death in 1980, in the days before the internet, before even the minitel bleu or rose, Roland Barthes compared the personals – at that time still print-based – of two popular French dailies. On the one hand, the advertisements in Le Nouvel Observateur belied artifice, he noted. The information their writers shared publicly with potential mates revealed a certain banal artificiality. Despite the obvious effort the creators of the ads had put into catching the eye of possible matches, in spite of the care with which they had weighed the words before ultimately selecting them and the ...


Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly Mar 2008

Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly

Brian G. Kennelly

Throughout the twentieth century activists in South Africa for the Afrikaans language struggled with, yet never resolved, the language/people, Afrikaans/Afrikaner issue, as Hermann Giliomee points out in his recent ‘biography’ of the Afrikaners (2003, 389). Was the Afrikaner community a racial or linguistic one? Was the push to promote Afrikaans subordinate to the entrenchment of a white supremacist government and ruling party? Was there a hegemonic or counter-hegemonic relationship between language and ethnicity? If the social identity of the Afrikaner was to be shaped by the acceptance of Afrikaans as a public language on equal footing with English ...


Reading Differently, Rereading For Difference In Versions Of Rimbaud's "Mouvement", Brian G. Kennelly Mar 2008

Reading Differently, Rereading For Difference In Versions Of Rimbaud's "Mouvement", Brian G. Kennelly

Brian G. Kennelly

How to engage students to reread Arthur Rimbaud’s 1886 poem “Mouvement” differently? What can they learn about the poem and in the process about themselves as readers of literature through its various versions and English language translations? Might rereading for difference hold pedagogical promise? How might a comparative study of the poem’s various versions in French and in English translation favor active reading and help students embrace the poem as differently meaningful because of its modernity?

Some Reflections On The Verbal Morphophonology Of Balearic Catalan, Clàudia Pons-Moll Jan 2007

Some Reflections On The Verbal Morphophonology Of Balearic Catalan, Clàudia Pons-Moll

Clàudia Pons-Moll

In Balearic Catalan, first person singular present indicative verb forms do not show an explicit inflectional morph, as do most dialects of Catalan. Among these forms, we find final consonant clusters that involve a violation of the sonority constraint according to which the degree of sonority between the segments of a syllable must be decreasing in relation to the nucleus. The same clusters in nominal inflection areresolved by means of a process of vowel epenthesis. The exceptional phonological behavior of these consonant clusters is not circumscribed to sonority factors, but also concerns the regular phonology of the dialect, either because ...

Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun Dec 2006

Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun

Sebastian Braun

This newest guide to modern Native American literature is divided in two parts. The first part consists of the editor's introduction to the context of American Indian literatures. The second part has four chapters, one each
providing analysis of literary works in fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction and introducing a selection of authors and works in these categories. As I do not wish to critique the selections of writers, nor the biographies of
the selected authors, this review will focus on the book's overall, theoretical approach to Native literatures which defines the text.

Reading Trees In Southern Literature, Matthew Sivils Jan 2006

Reading Trees In Southern Literature, Matthew Sivils

Matthew Sivils

Trees fulfi ll an important semiotic function within southern literary texts, and through this role serve as nexuses between humans and the natural world of the American South. Because of their ability to assume a wide range of sometimes temporary meanings, it is useful to think of southern literary trees as semiotic bottle trees: arboreal platforms upon which writer’s place semiotic components, or containers. To begin I draw from the work of Patricia Yaeger and Farah Jasmine Griffi n as I examine how southern literary trees are inexplicably connected to the issues of both environmental and racial oppression. Then ...
