Durch die Liebe zurück ins Leben ... Eine atemberaubende Geschichte, die alles durcheinanderwirbelt und in Frage stellt, dabei den Leser fesselt und ihn hautnah den Tod und gleichzeitig die Macht der Liebe spüren lässt.

Doch seit ihrem Krankenhausaufenthalt auf der Koma-Station ist alles anders. Eden hat sich verliebt. In Joe, den Freund einer anderen Koma-Patientin, die mit dem Tod ringt und zu der Eden eine unerklärliche Verbindung hält. Sie spürt, was die andere denkt und fühlt. Deshalb kommt Eden sich vor wie eine Verräterin und ist voller Zweifel und Schuldgefühle. Sie wagt es nicht, um Joe und für ihr Glück zu kämpfen. Schließlich begreift sie, dass Liebe auch bedeuten kann, den anderen gehen zu lassen.

From Outlaw to Classic

Canons in American Poetry

From Outlaw to Classic presents a sweeping history of the forces that have shaped, and continue to shape, the American poetry canon. Students, scholars, critics, and poets will welcome this enlightening and impressively documented book. Recent writings by critics and theorists on literary canons have dealt almost exclusively with prose; Alan Golding shows that, like all canons, those of American poetry are characterized by conflict. Choosing a series of varied but representative instances, he analyzes battles and contentions among poets, anthologists, poetry magazine editors, and schools of thought in university English departments. The chapters: • present a history of American poetry anthologies • compare competing models of canon-formation, the aesthetic (poet-centered) and the institutional (critic-centered) • discuss the influence of the New Critics, emphasizing their status as practicing poets, their anti-nationalist reading of American poetry, and the landmark textbook, Understanding Poetry by Cleanth Brooks and Robert Penn Warren • examine the canonizing effects of an experimental “little magazine,” Origin • trace how the Language poets address, in both their theory and their method, the canonizing institutions and canonical assumptions of the age.

Being Different: Strategies of Distinction and Twentieth-Century American Poetic Avant-Gardes

Das literarische Feld sei ein Mikrokosmos des sozialen Wettbewerbs um Status und Prestige – so Pierre Bourdieu. Dementsprechend rücken zwangsläufig Strategien in den Fokus des Interesses, mittels derer sich Literaturproduzenten wie -rezipienten positionieren und die erkämpfte Position behaupten. Dieser Kampf wird bestimmt durch die Logik des Sich-Abgrenzens und Sich-Abhebens von anderen. Als historisch breit angelegte Fallstudie des 20. Jahrhunderts zeichnet die vorliegende Untersuchung die im Feld der amerikanischen Lyrik vorherrschenden Machtkämpfe um (Be-)Deutungshoheit nach. Die Profilierung des Strategiebegriffs als zentrales Analyseinstrument ermöglicht es, einerseits Strategien der Selbstwahrnehmung und Selbstpositionierung und andererseits der Wahrnehmung und Positionierung von anderen Akteuren zu identifizieren. Distinktionsstrategien umfassen den Einsatz eines Arsenals von Kampfbegriffen, an denen sich der literarische Diskurs im Laufe des Jahrhunderts kontinuierlich unter sich verändernden literarhistorischen Vorzeichen abarbeitet.

Understanding Robert Penn Warren

Understanding Robert Penn Warren offers a comprehensive introduction to and commentary on the fiction, poetry and drama of one of the 20th century's most versatile writers and the first author to be honoured as US poet laureate. Grimshaw examines the writer's views about the primacy of self-knowledge and explores not only the painful and arduous path his protagonists must follow to gain such knowledge but also the inter-relationship of his artistic endeavours, which were woven together by common thematic concerns - history, time, truth, responsibility, love, hope and endurance.
