"In Narcissus Sous Rature, Jody Norton argues that Contemporary American poetry's characteristic problematic is the subject's contestation of hir discursive condition. While self-comprehension is a central, recurrent concern in post-literate poetry, most poetries in English since the Enlightenment have conceived their lyric subjects in accordance with the foundational Western philosophical assumption of the rationality of being. However, after Freud, Heisenberg, Saussure, Derrida, and Lacan, conceptions of the lyric "I" as representative of a more or less permanent, self-conscious, and self-possessed personality, inhabiting an ontologically dependable natural and historical world in a consistent way are no longer credible." "The problems of how to conceptualize the psycho-linguistic structuration of the male (putatively masculine) subject and hir relation to hir cultural environment, and of how to represent both the subject and hir relations in a medium - language - that is complexly involved in the construction of both the subject and hir representation (and, in a certain sense, of the subject as representation) emerge, for Contemporary poets, out of an historic moment particularly strongly marked by theoretical developments in extra-literary fields. Norton asserts that the lyric speaker in Contemporary American poetry cannot be understood unless the explicit and implicit dialogic relations between religious, philosophical, psychological, linguistic, aesthetic, critical and poetic texts are made central to the interpretive project."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Shakespeare's Sonnets, the Bard's only self-published works, are arguably the most beautiful, tragic, mystifying and crazy compilation of words in the English language. For four hundred years they've been almost exclusively the domain of scholars and academics, and for four hundred years their dark magic has passed the rest of us by. Transcribed from the podcast series of the same name, this is the first in a series analysing Shakespeare's Sonnets which is aimed as much at those who have never encountered the sonnets before as at seasoned scholars. The analysis is based on the original 1609 Quarto edition and introduces a new reading based exclusively off the text and uncontaminated by contemporary theories. All proceeds will be going towards the production of a wonderfully illustrated graphic novel adaptation of Shakespeare's Sonnets!

This ambitious and complex monograph by one of Africa's emerging literary critics and philosophers is focused on the ways that both Nietzsche and Wilde sought aesthetic solutions to the moralistic problems generated by what Nietzsche identified as "the will to truth". The author examines the inadequacy of the Romantic demand for an "undivided" subject both in their era as well as our own. Building on the work of Foucault, Derrida, Paul de Man and John Caputo, Mabille explores the influence of Nietzsche's ideas in late 19th and early 20th century English and Irish writing (especially George Bernard Shaw) and the influence of Wilde's Greek aestheticism on the notion of the dandy and the ubermensch. Wilde's conflation of the stage and the street is also discussed at length along with the roles of aphorism, metaphor, irony and "decadence".

Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, known as "The Tenth Muse" of America, has been widely anthologized as a poet, intellectual, and defender of women's rights. Her calling as a nun, often denigrated or overlooked, is clear in The Divine Narcissus, the finest extant example of the auto sacramental, a medieval genre similar to mystery plays. Autos presented a blend of poetry, instrumental and choral music, dance and special effects and were intended to provide theological instruction to a broad audience. The Divine Narcissus is an allegory ostensibly written to explain Christian concepts to the Aztecs whose plight under colonization it also dramatizes. It reveals a scintillating display of sacred and secular knowledge. Scholars and students will welcome this drama by America's first feminist in its original Spanish and first English translation.
