African Oral Literature: Backgrounds, Character, And Continuity By Isidore Okpewho, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith Jul 1993

African Oral Literature: Backgrounds, Character, And Continuity By Isidore Okpewho, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

Along with the publication of his two earlier scholarly works, The Epic in Africa (1979) and Myth in Africa (1983), Isidore Okpewho's latest book, African Oral Literature, seems to have completed the natural course of scholarship "in the field," as Afracanists continue their scholarly attempts ar (re)visioning/(re)writing African oral traditions and literatures from an "insider" perspective--from the horse's moth, so to speak.


The Dangers Of Gullible Reading: Narrative As Seduction In García Márquez' Love In The Time Of Cholera, M. Keith Booker Jun 1993

The Dangers Of Gullible Reading: Narrative As Seduction In García Márquez' Love In The Time Of Cholera, M. Keith Booker

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholera has frequently been read largely as a beautiful love story involving the lifelong fascination of Florentino Ariza with Fermina Daza and the eventual consummation of that fascination. Meanwhile, the text gains much of its energy from an opposition between the poetic romanticism of Ariza and the practical (though somewhat sinister) scientific thinking of Dr. Juvenal Urbino, Fermina's longtime husband. However, this opposition is not nearly as simple as it might appear, Ariza and Urbino being just as susceptible to the narrative of scientific progress as Ariza is to bad ...


Desire, Duplicity And Narratology: Boris Vian's L 'Ecume Des Jours, Charles J. Stivale Jun 1993

Desire, Duplicity And Narratology: Boris Vian's L 'Ecume Des Jours, Charles J. Stivale

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In this examination of Boris Vian's L'Ecume des jours, I call into question the masculinist resistance to criticism of Vian and his works through a critical counter-resistance from a feminist narratological perspective. In order to examine the implications of "narrative desire" for understanding textual and sexual difference, I argue for a narratology that develops the concept of textual "seduction" as a question of narrative duplicity. I undertake this "re-reading" not merely from the perspective of an "ideological unmasking," but also to suggest the possibility of a positive hermeneutic, or more precisely, the limits of such a move given ...


From Exile To Affirmation: The Poetry Of Joseph Brodsky, David Patterson Jun 1993

From Exile To Affirmation: The Poetry Of Joseph Brodsky, David Patterson

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article examines the relation between the exile of the poet from his homeland and the "exile of the word." The notion of the exile of the word pertains to the poet's problem of re-introducing meaning to the word—an excess of meaning that conveys more than the word can normally convey—through his poetry. Showing how the poet in exile becomes a poet of exile, the article examines what poetry has to do with a larger difficulty of exile and homelessness in human life. Brodsky's poetry, the article argues, addresses this very difficulty. The article concludes that ...


Intertextuality And Subversion: Poems By Ana Rossetti And Amparo Amorós, Andrew P. Debicki Jun 1993

Intertextuality And Subversion: Poems By Ana Rossetti And Amparo Amorós, Andrew P. Debicki

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In the last two decades, a number of Spanish women poets have written very significant works which use intertextuality to lead their readers into new perspectives and attitudes toward literary and social conventions. By examining two texts by Rossetti and Amorós that use intertexts to undermine, respectively, traditional "carpe diem" poetry and sexually allusive verse of different kinds, the article suggests that they reflect new, post-modern literary currents.


The Oldest Trick In The Book: Borges And The "Rhetoric Of Immediacy'', James Winchell Jun 1993

The Oldest Trick In The Book: Borges And The "Rhetoric Of Immediacy'', James Winchell

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In his most "philosophical'' texts, Jorge Luis Borges paradoxically posits the act of reading as the scene of affectively "immediate" experience: his reader reads a reader reading (ad infinitum). This sort of hyper-meditated, specular imitation actually comes to mirror the substantive preoccupation of the "philosophical" text itself. Borges thereby breaks down what Theodor Adorno calls "concept fetishism'' by making mimesis his textual concept. Given Italo Calvino's claim for the novelty of "The Approach to Al-Mu'tasim" in relation to modern genres, I propose a two-fold thesis: first, that this typically Borgesian narrative juxtaposes concept and mimesis (a traditional philosophical ...

Rehearsals In Bas Relief: Le Marin De Gibraltar Of Marguerite Duras, Mechthild Cranston Jun 1993

Rehearsals In Bas Relief: Le Marin De Gibraltar Of Marguerite Duras, Mechthild Cranston

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

With the publication of her first L'Amant in 1984, Marguerite Duras became an instant international best-seller. Seven years later, L'Amant de la chine du Nord received widespread media attention on both sides of the Atlantic. Yet Duras' early work remains virtually unknown to the educated reader here and abroad. Passed off in the Twayne volume on Duras as an imitation of Hemingway, Le Marin de Gibraltar, 1952, has never recovered from that first summary dismissal. The present essay reads Le Marin in light of Kristevan analysis, and attempts to show how the early novel foreshadows Duras' mature oeuvre.


Literary Translation And Culture Consciousness: The Experience Of Translating D.O. Fagunwa's Igbo Olodumare From Yoruba Into English, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith Jun 1993

Literary Translation And Culture Consciousness: The Experience Of Translating D.O. Fagunwa's Igbo Olodumare From Yoruba Into English, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

Le processus de traduction implique l'interprétation précise du sens contextuel du texte-source dans la mesure où les contraintes syntaxiques et associatives de la langue cible le permettent. À cette fin, le traducteur littéraire doit se poser les questions fondamentales suivantes avant de commencer la traduction d'une œuvre : quelle est l'essence stylistique de l'original ? quels en sont l'intention et le but ? Que faire lorsque le texte est culturellement marqué ? C'est en tenant compte de ces interrogations que nous examinerons la traduction du yoruba à l'anglais de Igbo Olodumare de D.O. Fagunwa.
