Apocalyptic Transformation

by Elizabeth K. Rosen, Apocalyptic Transformation Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Apocalyptic Transformation book, Apocalyptic Transformation explores how one the oldest sense-making paradigms, the apocalyptic myth, is altered when postmodern authors and filmmakers adopt it. It examines how postmodern writers adapt a fundamentally religious story for a secular audience and it proposes that even as these writers use the myth in traditional ways, they simultaneously undermine and criticize the grand narrative of apocalypse itself.

Trauma Postmodernism And The Aftermath Of World War Ii

by Paul Crosthwaite, Trauma Postmodernism And The Aftermath Of World War Ii Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Trauma Postmodernism And The Aftermath Of World War Ii book, The radical, 'postmodernist' waves of experimentation that swept Anglo-American fiction from the late 1960s constitute a delayed response to the upheavals of the Second World War, yet the legacy of the war barely figures in prevalent accounts of the postmodernist movement. As Paul Crosthwaite shows in this provocative book, to recognize the significance of the war in contemporary culture is to acknowledge that postmodernism, as a sensibility, aesthetic style, and mode of thought, must be entirely reconceived. Challenging dominant theorizations of the postmodern as depthless and dehistoricized, Crosthwaite demonstrates that postmodernism has not abandoned history but has rather reformulated it in terms of trauma, trauma that is traceable, time and again, to the catastrophes of the 1940s. The book stages a revealing confrontation between influential theories of trauma and postmodernism and offers innovative close readings of key texts by Virginia Woolf, Thomas Pynchon, Michael Moorcock, J.G. Ballard, Richard Powers and Ian McEwan.

Apocalypse And After

by Bruce Comens, Apocalypse And After Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Apocalypse And After book, Apocalypse and After examines the development of Modernism into Postmodernism as it occurs in the works of three major poets and attends closely to the social and political dimensions of that development as embodied in these writers’ distinctive poetics. Modernism’s struggle to develop a new global strategy was to a great extent a response to the catastrophe of World War I, while the Postmodern resort to fragmentary tactics stems from the failure of Modernist strategy both to avert World War II and to come to terms with the horror of the atomic bomb.

Art In The Age Of Mass Media

by John A. Walker, Art In The Age Of Mass Media Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Art In The Age Of Mass Media book, The inclusion of popular culture in art, and the distinction between the two, we learn in this volume, are problems usefully approached through a careful definition of terms. Walker lays out the terms then surveys the field chronologically, beginning with Courbet and ending with Melrose Place. The third edition contains a new chapter on the art of the 1990's that includes discussion of surveillance, advertising, cinema, Damien Hirst, the Internet, and digital art. c. Book News Inc.
