Susan Stewart:
Crimes of Writing: Problems in the Containment of Representation - Paperback

ISBN: 0822315459

[SR: 709308], Paperback, [EAN: 9780822315452], Duke University Press Books, Duke University Press Books, Book, [PU: Duke University Press Books], Duke University Press Books, From the origins of modern copyright in early eighteenth-century culture to the efforts to represent nature and death in postmodern fiction, this book explores a series of problems regarding the containment of representation. Stewart focuses on specific cases of "crimes of writing"—the forgeries of George Psalmanazar; the production of "fakelore"; the "ballad scandals" of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; the imposture of Thomas Chatterton; and contemporary legislation regarding graffiti and pornography. She emphasizes the issues that arise once language is seen as a matter of property, and authorship is viewed as a matter of originality. Finally, Stewart demonstrates that crimes of writing are delineated by the law because they specifically undermine the status of the law itself: the crimes illuminate the irreducible fact that law is written and therefore subject to temporality and interpretation. This valuable and pioneering work, originally published in 1991 (Oxford University Press), will be of interest to literary and legal theorists, folklorists, anthropologists, and scholars of eighteenth-century and postmodern culture., 10777, Law, 173492, Administrative Law, 2422, Biographies, 173486, Business, 227137, Constitutional Law, 173489, Criminal Law, 10845, Dictionaries & Terminology, 10868, Environmental & Natural Resources Law, 5744305011, Estate Planning, 10871, Ethics & Professional Responsibility, 227139, Family Law, 10898, Foreign & International Law, 5744306011, Health & Medical Law, 173488, Intellectual Property, 173487, Law Practice, 10915, Legal Education, 10922, Legal History, 173483, Legal Self-Help, 173495, Legal Theory & Systems, 10941, Media & the Law, 16022411, Philosophy, 173490, Rules & Procedures, 173491, Specialties, 227138, Tax Law, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10207, Criticism & Theory, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159357011, Reference, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 21, Reference & Test Preparation, 11444, Almanacs & Yearbooks, 11448, Atlases & Maps, 2572, Careers, 11626, Catalogs & Directories, 11472, Consumer Guides, 11475, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 11713, Encyclopedias & Subject Guides, 11823, English as a Second Language, 11761, Etiquette, 11773, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 11880, Genealogy, 11902, Quotations, 8975382011, Survival & Emergency Preparedness, 5267710011, Test Preparation, 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 5267707011, Writing, Research & Publishing Guides, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 15991441, General, 69845, Library & Information Science, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 468236, Literature, 491406, American Literature, 491394, Creative Writing & Composition, 491408, English Literature, 491404, Literary Theory, 684272011, World Literature, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468222, Law, 491506, Business Law, 491510, Constitutional Law, 491512, Criminal Law, 491516, Legal Reference, 491514, Tax Law, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
