[UPDATE] Critical Innovations: Reading & Writing Experimental Texts--Edited Collection

updated: 
Sunday, October 7, 2012 - 4:42pm
Kristina Quynn (CSU) & Robin Silbergleid (MSU)

We seek essays for an edited collection on the topic of innovative criticism. Building on the work of the autobiographical or creative modes popularized in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this collection assembles essays that explore the alternative methods, approaches, and practices that experimental, innovative, alternative, minor, and/or avant-garde texts call for or require. This collection acknowledges that the act of literary or cultural criticism is not neutral or distanced but is a personal and politicized practice that performs critical authority and expertise according to understood and agreed upon critical conventions.

O' Henric Turn in Maugham: A paradox or a fable

O' Henric Turn in Maugham: A paradox or a fable

"The Ant and the Grasshopper" is a fabulous short story written by William Somerset Maugham. The story starts with a popular fable relating the conversation between an industrious ant and its reluctant counterpart, a grasshopper. Though the story of the fable is embodied with a moral where industry is rewarded and giddiness punished, we see a completely different scenario in the end of the story. Maugham provides an O' Henric turn in the catharsis of the story and makes a sense of paradox and ambiguity. Consequently, it becomes an irony of the moral conflict between a man of ethics and that of a fantasy world.

"We Are Not Amused": Victorian Comedy and Humour (Congress at Victoria BC, June 1-4 2013; Due Nov 1, 2012)

Comedy is under-explored in Victorian literary criticism, but it is pervasive in the texts of the era, from brief moments—Dickens' caricatures and Thackeray's asides—to more extended treatments, in Lear's nonsense verse and Jerome K. Jerome's widely popular Three Men in a Boat.
