Self-conscious Art: A Tribute to John W. Kronik

Coperta unu
Susan L. Fischer, John W. Kronik
Bucknell University Press, 1996 - 183 pagini
Self-conscious art constitutes a significant and previously neglected feature of modern literature and is a crucial concern of contemporary criticism. The essays in this volume consider such questions as the limits of self-consciousness, the creative and circumstantial tensions that produce its various features, the ludic nature of art, the role of interpretation, and the aesthetic, social, and mythic reverberations of self-reflexive art.

Honour hath no skill in surgery, then? no. What is honour? a word. What is in that word honour? what is that honour? air. A trim reckoning! Who hath it? he that died o
Pagina 53 - Many Theresas have been born who found for themselves no epic life wherein there was a constant unfolding of far-resonant action ; perhaps only a life of mistakes, the offspring of a certain spiritual grandeur ill-matched with the meanness of opportunity ; perhaps a tragic failure which found no sacred poet and sank unwept into oblivion.
Pagina 159 - And let me speak to the yet unknowing world How these things came about: so shall you hear Of carnal, bloody and unnatural acts; Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters; Of deaths put on by cunning and forc'd cause; And, in this upshot, purposes mistook Fall'n on the inventors' heads: all this can I Truly deliver.
Pagina 144 - ... so findet sich auch, wenn die Erkenntnis gleichsam durch ein Unendliches gegangen ist, die Grazie wieder ein; so, daß sie, zu gleicher Zeit, in demjenigen menschlichen Körperbau am reinsten erscheint, der entweder gar keins oder ein unendliches Bewußtsein hat, dh in dem Gliedermann, oder in dem Gott.
Pagina 106 - Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love: Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues; Let every eye negotiate for itself, And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch, Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
Pagina 163 - Roland Barthes, The Pleasure of the Text, trans. Richard Miller (New York: Hill and Wang, 1975), 7. 38. See, for example, John Fiske and John Watts, "Video Games: Inverted Pleasures," Australian Journal of Cultural Studies 3, no.
Pagina 56 - Contemporary metafictional writing is both a response and a contribution to an even more thoroughgoing sense that reality or history are provisional: no longer a world of eternal verities but a series of constructions, artifices, impermanent structures.
Pagina 83 - Shakespeare's plays were written to be performed continuously, that their cinematic structure of alternating short scenes, plot intercut with subplot, were all part of a total shape. This shape is only revealed dynamically, that is, in the uninterrupted sequence of these scenes, and without this their effect and power are lessened as much as would be a film that was projected with breaks and musical interludes between each reel. The Elizabethan stage was...
Pagina 126 - Yo el soneto compuse que así empieza, por honra principal de mis escritos : Voto a Dios. que me espanta esta grandeza. Yo he compuesto romances infinitos, y el de los celos es aquel que estimo, entre otros, que los tengo por malditos.
Pagina 159 - I've ever been allowed to make, and look, I can taste it — real blood — and when they come tell them — of carnal bloody and unnatural acts — accidental judgements — casual slaughters, of deaths put on by cunning and forc'd cause...
