Second Sight

The Visionary Imagination in Late Victorian Literature

Author: Catherine Maxwell

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 265

View: 5604

This challenging and important study, which examines a range of canonical and less well-known writers, is an innovative reassessment of late Victorian literature in its relation to visionary Romanticism. It examines six late Victorian writers - Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Walter Pater, Vernon Lee, Eugene Lee-Hamilton, Theodore Watts-Dunton and Thomas Hardy - to reveal their commitment to a Romantic visionary tradition which surface towards the end of the nineteenth century in response to the threat of growing materialism. Offering detailed and imaginative readings of both poetry and prose, Second Sight shows the different ways in which late Victorian writers move beyond materiality, without losing a commitment to it, to explore the mysterious relation between the seen and the unseen. A major re-evaluation of the post-Romantic visionary imagination, with implications for our understanding of literary modernism, Second Sight will be required reading for scholars interested in the literature of the late Victorian period.

The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

Category: Fiction

Page: 368

With the publication of her first novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Carson McCullers, all of twenty-three, became a literary sensation. With its profound sense of moral isolation and its compassionate glimpses into its characters' inner lives, the novel is considered McCullers' finest work, an enduring masterpiece first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1940. At its center is the deaf-mute John Singer, who becomes the confidant for various types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer's mute companion goes insane, Singer moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book's heroine (and loosely based on McCullers), finds solace in her music. Wonderfully attuned to the spiritual isolation that underlies the human condition, and with a deft sense for racial tensions in the South, McCullers spins a haunting, unforgettable story that gives voice to the rejected, the forgotten, and the mistreated—and, through Mick Kelly, gives voice to the quiet, intensely personal search for beauty. Richard Wright praised Carson McCullers for her ability "to rise above the pressures of her environment and embrace white and black humanity in one sweep of apprehension and tenderness." She writes "with a sweep and certainty that are overwhelming," said the New York Times. McCullers became an overnight literary sensation, but her novel has endured, just as timely and powerful today as when it was first published. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is Carson McCullers at her most compassionate, endearing best.

Diese Studie beschäftigt sich mit dem dramatischen Monolog des Viktorianismus. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf dem narrativen Phänomen des unzuverlässigen Erzählens, das diese besondere Gattung der Lyrik kennzeichnet. Die Autorin überträgt narratologische Ansätze auf die Lyrikanalyse und modifiziert teilweise die Signale für ›unreliable narration‹. Daran anschließend analysiert sie ausgewählte Texte wie Alfred Tennysons »St Simeon Stylites«, Robert Brownings »Porphyria’s Lover«, Augusta Websters »A Castaway« und Elizabeth Barrett Brownings »Bertha in the Lane« hinsichtlich des Einsatzes unzuverlässigen Erzählens. Obwohl die Gattung ein modern erscheinendes Erzählphänomen nutzt und meist subversive, idiosynkratische Figuren pointiert darstellt, erfüllt sie eine durchaus konservative Funktion und dient durch ihre Auseinandersetzung mit den beherrschenden Kulturthemen des Viktorianismus – Religion, Wahnsinn und Kriminalität, Prostitution und Tod – der Stabilisierung des viktorianischen Wertesystems.
