Striding Both Worlds

Striding Both Worlds [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Striding Both Worlds by Melissa Kennedy Book Resume:

"Striding Both Worlds "illuminates European influences in the fiction of Witi Ihimaera, Aotearoa New Zealand s foremost M ori writer, in order to question the common interpretation of M ori writing as displaying a distinctive M ori world-view and literary style. Far from being discrete endogenous units, all cultures and literatures arise out of constant interaction, engagement, and even friction. Thus, M ori culture since the 1970s has been shaped by a long history of interaction with colonial British, Pakeha, and other postcolonial and indigenous cultures. M ori sovereignty and renaissance movements have harnessed the structures of European modernity, nation-building, and, more recently, Western global capitalism, transculturation, and diaspora contexts which contest New Zealand bicultural identity, encouraging M ori to express their difference and self-sufficiency. Ihimaera s fiction has been largely viewed as embodying the specific values of M ori renaissance and biculturalism. However, Ihimaera, in his techniques, modes, and themes, is indebted to a wider range of literary influences than national literary critique accounts for. In taking an international literary perspective, this book draws critical attention to little-known or disregarded aspects such as Ihimaera s love of opera, the extravagance of his baroque lyricism, his exploration of fantasy, and his increasing interest in taking M ori into the global arena. In revealing a broad range of cultural and aesthetic influences and inter-references commonly seen as irrelevant to contemporary M ori literature, "Striding Both Worlds "argues for a hitherto frequently overlooked and undervalued depth and complexity to Ihimaera s imaginary. The present study argues that an emphasis on difference tends to lose sight of fiction s capacity to appreciate originality and individuality in the polyphony of its very form and function. In effect, literary negotiation of M ori sovereign space takes place in its forms rather than in its content: the uniqueness of M ori literature is found in the way it uses the common tools of literary fiction, including language, imagery, the text s relationship to reality, and the function of characterization. By interpeting aspects of Ihimaera s oeuvre for what they share with other literatures in English, "Striding Both Worlds "aims to present an additional, complementary approach to M ori, New Zealand, and postcolonial literary analysis."

Narratives of Inequality

Striding Both Worlds [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Narratives of Inequality by Melissa Kennedy Book Resume:

This book reveals the economic motivations underpinning colonial, neocolonial and neoliberal eras of global capitalism that are represented in critiques of inequality in postcolonial fiction. Today’s economic inequality, suffered disproportionately by indigenous and minority groups of postcolonial societies in both developed and developing countries, is a direct outcome of the colonial-era imposition of capitalist structures and practices. The longue durée, world-systems approach in this study reveals repeating patterns and trends in the mechanics of capitalism that create and maintain inequality. As well as this, it reveals the social and cultural beliefs and practices that justify and support inequality, yet equally which resist and condemn it. Through analysis of narrative representations of wealth accumulation and ownership, structures of internal inequality between the rich and the poor within cultural communities, and the psychology of capitalism that engenders particular emotions and behaviour, this study brings postcolonial literary economics to the neoliberal debate, arguing for the important contribution of the imaginary to the pressing issue of economic inequality and its solutions.

On Top of Beacon Hill

Striding Both Worlds [Pdf/ePub] eBook

On Top of Beacon Hill by Brannon Gerling Book Resume:

On Top of Beacon Hill presents a homecoming of art and philosophy in verse. Powered in the tradition of existential thought, the phenomenological composition seeks to transport readers to the fertile and authentic realm of elemental being through a rare blend of Eastern, Western, and indigenous styles. Learn how to express your emotions fearlessly, and with excellent distinction. Make your spiritual ends meet, gloriously, inducing shamanic-trained impeccability from your actions, and appreciating, most intimately, the causal force of eternity, Nietzsche’s “eternal recurrence.” Packaged tightly with semantics, but never shackled by them, the poems explore some classic topical clashes within Eastern and Western thought. But in a word: a simple yet austere program to power, to cognitively fill out the authority of your sensory capacity, indeed, philosophically pioneering the mental charge of emotions—not governing but engaging them—like hound dogs leading the hunt, as we sow raw and timeless seeds On Top of Beacon Hill. Language is Contradiction In time, language seeks negation dialectically, as the right leg seeks the left for movement. In the utilization to articulate ideas, contradictions become apparent, because correspondence is a stack of letters, cogently fashioned from wild thoughts for fermentation of domestication. Language exists now, yet requires structural reflection and afterthought, both of which are peripheral thoughts in Platonic forms of thinking inside immediacy. And that which seems coupled from a distance (here vernacular forms with immediacy) defines via contradistinction. So, language is the nativity of dialectics, since it is acting definition, plus possession: clutching at building materials, some sentimental reflection of yesteryear, and the flux of the thoughts of the morrow ...

World’s Fairs in a Southern Accent

Striding Both Worlds [Pdf/ePub] eBook

World’s Fairs in a Southern Accent by Bruce G. Harvey Book Resume:

The South was no stranger to world’s fairs prior to the end of the nineteenth century. Atlanta first hosted a fair in the 1880s, as did New Orleans and Louisville, but after the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago drew comparisons to the great exhibitions of Victorian-era England, Atlanta’s leaders planned to host another grand exposition that would not only confirm Atlanta as an economic hub the equal of Chicago and New York, but usher the South into the nation’s industrial and political mainstream. Nashville and Charleston quickly followed suit with their own exhibitions. In the 1890s, the perception of the South was inextricably tied to race, and more specifically racial strife. Leaders in Atlanta, Nashville, and Charleston all sought ways to distance themselves from traditional impressions about their respective cities, which more often than not conjured images of poverty and treason in Americans barely a generation removed from the Civil War. Local business leaders used large-scale expositions to lessen this stigma while simultaneously promoting culture, industry, and economic advancement. Atlanta’s Cotton States and International Exposition presented the city as a burgeoning economic center and used a keynote speech by Booker T. Washington to gain control of the national debate on race relations. Nashville’s Tennessee Centennial and International Exposition chose to promote culture over mainstream success and marketed Nashville as a “Centennial City” replete with neoclassical architecture, drawing on its reputation as “the Athens of the south.” Charleston’s South Carolina Inter-State and West Indian Exposition followed in the footsteps of Atlanta’s exposition. Its new class of progressive leaders saw the need to reestablish the city as a major port of commerce and designed the fair around a Caribbean theme that emphasized trade and the corresponding economics that would raise Charleston from a cotton exporter to an international port of interest. Bruce G. Harvey studies each exposition beginning at the local and individual level of organization and moving upward to explore a broader regional context. He argues that southern urban leaders not only sought to revive their cities but also to reinvigorate the South in response to northern prosperity. Local businessmen struggled to manage all the elements that came with hosting a world’s fair, including raising funds, designing the fairs’ architectural elements, drafting overall plans, soliciting exhibits, and gaining the backing of political leaders. However, these businessmen had defined expectations for their expositions not only in terms of economic and local growth but also considering what an international exposition had come to represent to the community and the region in which they were hosted. Harvey juxtaposes local and regional aspects of world’s fair in the South and shows that nineteenth-century expositions had grown into American institutions in their own right. Bruce G. Harvey is an independent consultant and documentary photographer with Harvey Research and Consulting based in Syracuse, New York. He specializes in historic architectural surveys and documentation photography.

Shakespeare and the Literary Tradition

Striding Both Worlds [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Shakespeare and the Literary Tradition by Stephen Orgel,Sean Keilen Book Resume:

Shakespeare has never been more ubiquitous, not only on the stage and in academic writing, but in film, video and the popular press. On television, he advertises everything from cars to fast food. His birthplace, the tiny Warwickshire village of Stratford-Upon-Avon, has been transformed into a theme park of staggering commercialism, and the New Globe, in its second season, is already a far bigger business than the old Globe could ever have hoped to be. If popular culture cannot do without Shakespeare, continually reinventing him and reimagining his drama and his life, neither can the critical and scholarly world, for which Shakespeare has, for more than two centuries, served as the central text for analysis and explication, the foundation of the western literary canon and the measure of literary excellence.The Shakespeare the essays collected in these volumes reveal is fully as multifarious as the Shakespeare of theme parks, movies and television. Indeed, it is part of the continuing reinvention of Shakespeare. The essays are drawn for the most part from work done in the past three decades, though a few essential, enabling essays from an earlier period have been included. They not only chart the directions taken by Shakespeare studies in the recent past, but they serve to indicate the enormous and continuing vitality of the enterprise, and the extent to which Shakespeare has become a metonym for literary and artistic endeavor generally.
