Heidegger's Confessions: The Remains of Saint Augustine in Being and Time and Beyond (Religion and Postmodernism)

Even supposing Martin Heidegger is sort of as infamous as Friedrich Nietzsche for embracing the dying of God, the thinker himself stated that Christianity observed him at each level of his occupation. In Heidegger's Confessions, Ryan Coyne isolates a crucially very important participant during this tale: Saint Augustine.

Self-Conscious Art: Patrick Modiano's Postmodern Fictions

A Self-Conscious artwork is the 1st full-length research in English to aim to house the formal complexities of Modiano’s paintings, via studying ''against the grain'' of his self-professed ingenuousness. a close exam of his narratives exhibits the deeply postmodern nature of his writing. Parodying precursors equivalent to Proust or the nouveau romanciers, his narratives are equipped round a profound loss of religion within the skill of writing to retrieve the prior via reminiscence, and this failure is stated within the discreet playfulness that characterizes his novels.

Peripheral (post) modernity : the syncretist aesthetics of Borges, Piglia, Kalokyris and Kyriakidis

Are there things like peripheral modernity and postmodernity? This groundbreaking ebook makes a speciality of the notions of modernity and postmodernity in international locations that by no means earlier than were studied relatively: Argentina and Greece. It examines theories of the postmodern and the issues curious about utilising them to the hybrid and sui generis cultural phenomena of the «periphery».

Example text

2 The postmodern dramatic text, by and large, corresponds to new forms of textuality put forth by Roland Barthes since it stresses the processual and transformative dimensions of dramatic action. In his essay on Balzac's story "Sarrasine," Barthes distinguishes between 1 2 Pavis, "Classical Heritage" 11. Herbert Grabes has dwelled extensively on these issues in his essay "Performance Theater and the Text" which will be dealt with more thoroughly below. 2 Dramatic Text, Performance, and Authorship 54 readerly and writerly texts.

Sondern die Konstituenten des Theatralischen selbst in ihrer Zeichen- 9 In the wake of the rampant interest in metadramatic strategies, the scholarly book market has produced quite a number of studies devoted to the exploration of metadrama. These studies cover playwrights from Shakespeare to Gertrude Stein and Tom Stoppard, but none of them has so far discussed the relationship between postmodern theory and metadrama comprehensively. In Metadrama und englisches Gegenwartsdrama, Karin Vieweg-Marks concentrates on British metadrama in the plays by Edward Bond and Tom Stoppard while leaving aside its postmodern implications.

There is, however, also a pronounced political side to the transtextuality, even to the plagiarism, of postmodern culture. Andreas 15 16 17 18 19 Roland Barthes, "The Death of the Author," Image-Music-Text, trans. Stephen Heath (1968; New York: Noonday P, 1988), 146. Jonathan Culler, The Pursuit of Signs (Ithaca: Cornell UP, 1981), 103. There are, of course, many equally valid definitions of intertextuality; see, for instance, Linda Hutcheon, A Poetics of Postmodernism where she talks about the "inevitable textual infiltration of prior discursive practices" (127).
