The Cambridge Companion to American Civil Rights Literature brings together leading scholars to examine the significant traditions, genres, and themes of civil rights literature. While civil rights scholarship has typically focused on documentary rather than creative writing, and political rather than cultural history, this Companion addresses the gap and provides university students with a vast introduction to an impressive range of authors, including Richard Wright, Lorraine Hansberry, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Amiri Baraka, and Toni Morrison. Accessible to undergraduates and academics alike, this Companion surveys the critical landscape of a rapidly growing field and lays the foundation for future studies.

Why did theatre audiences laugh in Shakespeare's day? Why do they still laugh now? What did Shakespeare do with the conventions of comedy that he inherited, so that his plays continue to amuse and move audiences? What do his comedies have to say about love, sex, gender, power, family, community, and class? What place have pain, cruelty, and even death in a comedy? Why all those puns? In a survey that travels from Shakespeare's earliest experiments in farce and courtly love-stories to the great romantic comedies of his middle years and the mould-breaking experiments of his last decade's work, this book addresses these vital questions. Organised thematically, and covering all Shakespeare's comedies from the beginning to the end of his career, it provides readers with a map of the playwright's comic styles, showing how he built on comedic conventions as he further enriched the possibilities of the genre.

This introductory book provides students and readers of Faulkner with a clear overview of the life and work of one of America's most prolific writers of fiction. His nineteen novels, including The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, Go Down, Moses and Absalom, Absalom! are discussed in detail, as are his major short stories and nonfiction.

The literature of French-speaking countries forms a distinct body of work quite separate from literature written in France itself, offering a passionate creative engagement with their postcolonial cultures. This book provides an introduction to the literatures that have emerged in the French-speaking countries and regions of the world in recent decades, illustrating their astonishing breadth and diversity, and exploring their constant state of tension with the literature of France. The study opens with a wide-ranging discussion of the idea of francophonie. Each chapter then provides readers with historical background to a particular region and identifies the key issues that have influenced the emergence of a literature in French, before going on to examine in detail a selection of the major writers. These case studies tackle many of the key authors of the francophone world, as well as authors writing today.

Die Entdeckung eines Autors: J. G. Farrell zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache 1919: Major Brendan Archer, nach dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs aus der englischen Armee entlassen, reist an die irische Ostküste, um seine Verlobte zu heiraten. Das Wiedersehen mit der Tochter des Besitzers des Hotels Majestic verläuft allerdings gänzlich anders als erhofft, zumal die Verlobte bald darauf verstirbt. In der Zwischenzeit aber hat sich der Major bereits auf die verbliebene Schar von Katzen, skurrilen Dienern und Bewohnern eingelassen und wird immer tiefer in den Sog des Verfalls des riesigen ehemaligen Prachthotels und seines polternden Besitzers Edward Spencer hineingezogen. Die brillante, von absurdem Humor durchzogene Erzählung spielt vor dem Hintergrund der entscheidenden Jahre Irlands auf dem Weg zur Teilung des Landes. Die unerschöpflichen Facetten dieses jahrhundertealten Konflikts spiegeln sich wider in den verschiedenen Standpunkten der sehr lebensnah gezeichneten Figuren. Posthum mit dem Man Booker Prize ausgezeichnet, bietet sich nun auch dem deutschen Leser die Gelegenheit zur Begegnung mit einem vollendeten Stilisten und großen Erzähler.

Key Issues in Creative Writing explores a range of important issues that inform the practice and understanding of creative writing. The collection considers creative writing learning and teaching as well as creative writing research. Contributors target debates that arise because of the nature of creative writing. These experts – from the UK, USA and Australia – specifically examine creative writing as a subject in universities and colleges and discuss both the creative knowledge and the critical understanding informing the subject and its future. Finally, this volume suggests ways in which addressing current issues will produce significant disciplinary knowledge that will contribute to the success of creative writing in current and future academic environments.
