Feminist Alternatives: Irony and Fantasy in the Contemporary Novel by Women - Paperback

Booktrope Editions. Paperback. New. Paperback. 172 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.1in. x 0.5in.As we hurtle through the second decade of the 21st century, the pressure for radical change to mainstream education is becoming ever more urgent, and images for what that future might look like are emerging and coalescing. But there is a problem. There is no version of this complex, exciting new world of learning that can arrive fully operational and ready to open for business on Monday morning. Redesigning Education captures the journeys of cities and countries around the world as they travel from the education systems they have to the education systems they want and need-and highlights the tools and processes they are using along the way. The Global Education Leaders Program, or GELP, is a partnership of teams of education system leaders and world-class organizations collaborating to transform education. Its members include some of the highest performing countries in the world and those where providing education for all is an extraordinary challenge. As a community, these teams have developed, refined and shared a compelling and-critically-actionable vision for the future of education: Education 3. 0. Redesigning Education is about what it takes to transform education systems when the context in which theyve flourished fundamentally alters. While a fully operational 21st century education system does not yet exist, GELP teams are identifying a clear set of models and practices that together form a roadmap to the future, backed up by the practical lessons drawn from their experiences. More than simply a compelling case for change, Redesigning Education offers real insights grown from stories of system transformation around the globe. This item ships from multiple locations.

Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.The author contends that the novels of the period 1969--1988 served as a dialogue among women authors and their readers as they attempted to deal with dramatic alterations in attitudes toward career, sexuality, and continued tension between personal autonomy and cultural sexism. In readings of novels by American, British, and Canadian authors, including Gail Godwin, Toni Morrison, Margaret Drabble, Doris Lessing, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Margaret Atwood, the author proposes that the narrative devices of irony and fantasy that are used commonly in these novels reflect womens increased detachment from cultural attempts to define womens nature and role, and their needs to imagine alternative ways of ordering their own lives and the structure of society itself. Rather than a chronological or author-by-author study, this insightful book integrates references to and readings of the novels in several areas of emphasis: the novel as a means of communication among women of this period, the relationship between irony and fantasy as narrative elements and the authors concern with language itself, the novelists tendency to use multiple narrative voices that continuously revise the concept of a fixed self and the stories that have traditionally defined the female self, the use of dreams, fantasies, and even madness as means of transcendence, and the frequent creation of utopian or dystopian visions of past or future. The author concludes that a pervasive theme in womens novels of the past twenty years, from Lessings The Four--Gated City to Atwoods Cats Eye, is the radical questioning of received tradition. She concludes as well that the alternative society collectively envisioned by these would value womens intellectual as well emotional powers, recognize their sexuality, reformulate the concept of power, and recognize womens full participation in the creation of language and meaning.

ISBN: 9781604735765

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: UNIV PR OF MISSISSIPPI], Feminist Alternatives: Irony and Fantasy in the Contemporary Novel by Women by Nancy A. Walker This analytical survey of contemporary fiction is a study of more than twenty-five novels written by women during a twenty-year period of rapid socio-cultural change resulting from the philosophy and goals of the contemporary women's movement. The author contends that the novels of the period 1969-1988 served as a dialogue among women authors and their readers as they attempted to deal with dramatic alterations in attitudes toward career, sexuality, and continued tension between personal autonomy and cultural sexism. In readings of novels by American, British, and Canadian authors, including Gail Godwin, Toni Morrison, Margaret Drabble, Doris Lessing, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Margaret Atwood, the author proposes that the narrative devices of irony and fantasy are used commonly in these novels to reflect women's increased detachment from cultural attempts to define women's nature and role, and their need to imagine alternative ways of ordering their own lives and the structure of society itself. Rather than a chronological or author-by-author study, this insightful book integrates references to and readings of the novels in several areas of emphasis: the novel as a means of communication among women of this period, the relationship between irony and fantasy as narrative elements and the authors' concern with language itself, the novelists' tendency to use multiple narrative voices that continuously revised the concept of a fixed "self" and the stories that have traditionally defined the female self, the use of dreams, fantasies, and even madness as means of transcendence, and the frequent creation of utopian or dystopian visions of past or future. The author concludes that a pervasive theme in women's novels of the past twenty years, from Lessing's The Four-Gated City to Atwood's Cat's Eye, is the radical questioning of received tradition. She concludes as well that the alternative society collectively envisioned by these authors would value women's intellectual as well as emotional powers, recognize their sexuality, reformulate the concept of power, and recognize women's full participation in the creation of language and meaning.
