"Playing A Game Of Worlds": Postmodern Time And The Search For Individual Autonomy In Vladimir Nabokov's Pale Fire , Jill Leroy-Frazier Jun 2003

"Playing A Game Of Worlds": Postmodern Time And The Search For Individual Autonomy In Vladimir Nabokov's Pale Fire , Jill Leroy-Frazier

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article enters the ongoing critical debate surrounding Pale Fire, as to whether the apparent structure of the novel can be taken at face value. Do the central characters, John Shade and Charles Kinbote, constitute separate voices within the novel, as poet and commentator respectively, or is one in fact the fictional creation of the other? Arguing that the dispute arises out of a set of critical assumptions that negate at least some of the possible implications of Nabokov's own views of art's purpose and function, the essay asserts that Nabokov's disbelief in objective reality renders the ...


Architect Nikola Dobrović—A Member Of The Heroic Generation, Jelena Bogdanović Jan 2003

Architect Nikola Dobrović—A Member Of The Heroic Generation, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Review Of: Slovene: A Comprehensive Grammar, Edward J. Vajda Jan 2003

Review Of: Slovene: A Comprehensive Grammar, Edward J. Vajda

Modern & Classical Languages

This book lives up to its subtitle of 'comprehensive' in several ways. It provides a thorough, up-to-date introduction to Slovene grammatical structure. It also deals with all facets of the written standard in a straightforward fashion that pays careful attention to the differences between written and spoken Slovene. The sections dealing with phonology and orthography (5-26) are particularly useful as a prelude to the longer grammatical descriptions that follow. There are also sections on word order (333-44) and a general treatment of word formation (345-62), in addition to separate sections on all major and minor parts of speech; no significant ...

Protestant Language Use In 17th Century Slovakia In A Diglossia Framework, Mark Richard Lauersdorf

Linguistics Faculty Publications

This article presents a discussion of several issues that are central to the ongoing, larger sociolinguistic investigation of the history of standard language development in pre-codification (15th-18th century) Slovakia.
