Ellison, David R.:
Ethics and Aesthetics in European Modernist Literature: From the Sublime to the Uncanny - hardcover

ISBN: 9780521806800

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], David Ellison's book is an investigation into the historical origins and textual practice of European literary Modernism. Ellison's study traces the origins of Modernism to the emergence of early German Romanticism from the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, and emphasizes how the passage from Romanticism to Modernism can be followed in the gradual transition from the sublime to the uncanny. Arguing that what we call High Modernism cannot be reduced to a religion of beauty, an experimentation with narrative form, or even a reflection on time and consciousness, Ellison demonstrates that Modernist textuality is characterized by the intersection, overlapping, and crossing of aesthetic and ethical issues. Beauty and morality relate to each other as antagonists struggling for dominance within the related fields of philosophy and theory on the one hand (Kant, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Freud) and imaginative literature on the other (Baudelaire, Proust, Gide, Conrad, Woolf, Kafka). Table of contents: Preface Part I. Kant, Romantic Irony, Unheimlichkeit: 1. Border crossings in Kant 2. Kierkegaard on the economics of living poetically 3. Freud's 'Das Unheimliche': the intricacies of textual uncanniness Part II. The Romantic Heritage and Modernist Fiction: 4. Aesthetic redemption: the Thyrsus in Nietzsche, Baudelaire, and Wagner 5. The 'beautiful soul': Alain-Fournier's Le Grand Meaulnes and the aesthetics of Romanticism 6. Proust and Kafka: uncanny narrative openings 7. Textualizing immoralism: Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Gide's L'Immoraliste 8. Fishing the waters of impersonality: Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse Epilogue: narrative and music in Kafka and Blanchot: the 'singing' of Josefine Notes Index. Ellison's book is an ambitious presentation of the aesthetic and ethical dimensions of Modernist literature. Ellison brings together philosophical, theoretical, and literary texts ranging over a century and a half of intellectual history. He shows, through close readings, how the struggle between aesthetic and ethical issues characterises each of them. David Ellison's book is an investigation into the historical origins and textual practice of European literary Modernism. 304 pages Versandfertig in 2-4 Wochen, DE, Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, offene Rechnung (Vorkasse vorbehalten)
