Robert Scholes:
The Rise and Fall of English: Reconstructing English as a Discipline - Paperback

ISBN: 0300080840

[SR: 1359593], Paperback, [EAN: 9780300080841], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], Yale University Press, In this lucid book Scholes takes a critical look at the nature and direction of English studies in America. He offers a thoughtful and witty intervention in current debates about educational and cultural values and goals., English majors and literary critics take note! Here is an energetic exegesis of the rise and fall of the oft deplored, slightly suspect academic discipline "English." Critical of literary theory occupying center stage in the teaching of university English, Professor Robert Scholes adopts "a militant middle position on many of the questions that currently vex English studies." In our already imperiled, latter 20th century, what might those vexations, be? Lack of teaching the "truth," the waiving of the responsibilities in the higher halls of academe to teach composition, a "devotion to the morality of the marketplace and the aesthetics of fashion ... " to name a few. These constitute vital arguments, indeed, for a reinvigoration of the field. Five chapters make up this lucid text, beginning with a historic overview. In 1701, there were no English professors. Pontificating rectors held the power and prestige; raw and recent Harvard graduates did the dirty work of teaching composition. "This division of labor, as may have occurred to you, is still with us," notes Scholes, whose intent is to trace this classic division and offer up a plan to unite them. Each chapter addresses a particular detail in the evolution of the discipline and concludes with a personal addendum, an "assignment," in which Scholes drops the scholarly persona, adopts the "I," and inserts personal reflections based on his experience in academia. He ponders, for example, why English departments are regarded as responsible for teaching all possible kinds of writing, from the scientific and technical to the literary. His conclusion: "The useful, the practical, and even the intelligible were relegated to composition so that literature could stand as the complex embodiment of cultural ideals.... Teachers of literature became the priests ... while teachers of composition were the nuns, barred from the priesthood, doing the shitwork of the field." The Rise and Fall of English represents a powerful marriage of the past, providing a fascinating, if sweeping portrait of early American higher education, in brash juxtaposition with current attacks on the humanities. It's a deep read, although Scholes serves up his scholarship with wit and passion, to a readership possessed both of affection and affinity for the field., 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 11972, Alphabet, 11975, Communication, 11977, Etymology, 11981, Grammar, 11983, Handwriting, 11986, Linguistics, 11990, Phonetics & Phonics, 541648, Public Speaking, 11994, Reading Skills, 11996, Reference, 11998, Rhetoric, 12000, Semantics, 9408970011, Sign Language, 12002, Speech, 12004, Spelling, 12006, Study & Teaching, 12008, Translating, 12013, Vocabulary, Slang & Word Lists, 21, Reference, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 69820, Higher & Continuing Education, 8975357011, Administration, 69822, Adult & Continuing Education, 11643, Business School Guides, 11634, College Guides, 69826, Financial Aid, 11641, Graduate School Guides, 11647, Law School Guides, 11649, Medical School Guides, 9221735011, Test Preparation, 16022311, Vocational, 8975347011, Education & Teaching, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16022391, Reform & Policy, 69829, Education Theory, 5267708011, Schools & Teaching, 8975347011, Education & Teaching, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 8975373011, Language Arts, 15959731, Instruction Methods, 5267708011, Schools & Teaching, 8975347011, Education & Teaching, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 468224, Education, 491352, Administration, 684254011, Counseling, 491354, Curriculum & Instruction, 684255011, Educational Philosophy, 684256011, Elementary Education, 491366, History & Theory, 684257011, Secondary Education, 491364, Special Education, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
