Download or read book Book Presence in a Digital Age written by Kiene Brillenburg Wurth and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2018-06-28 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Contrary to the apocalyptic pronouncements of paper media's imminent demise in the digital age, there has been a veritable surge of creative reimaginings of books as bearers of the literary. From typographic experiments (Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves, Steven Hall's The Raw Shark Texts) to accordion books (Anne Carson's Nox), from cut ups (Jonathan Safran Foer's Tree of Codes) to collages (Graham Rawle's Woman's World), from erasures (Mary Ruefle's A Little White Shadow) to mixups (Simon Morris's The Interpretations of Dreams), print literature has gone through anything but a slow, inevitable death. In fact, it has re-invented itself materially. Starting from this idea of media plurality, Book Presence in a Digital Age explores the resilience of print literatures, book art, and zines in the late age of print from a contemporary perspective, while incorporating longer-term views on media archeology and media change. Even as it focuses on the materiality of books and literary writing in the present, Book Presence also takes into consideration earlier 20th-century "moments" of media transition, developing the concepts of presence and materiality as analytical tools to perform literary criticism in a digital age. Bringing together leading scholars, artists, and publishers, Book Presence in a Digital Age offers a variety of perspectives on the past, present, and future of the book as medium, the complex relationship of materiality to virtuality, and of the analog to the digital.
Summary Book Review Mark Z Danielewski's 'House of Leaves' and Deleuze and Guattari's Rhizome Theory by Hazel Stuart:
Download or read book Mark Z Danielewski's 'House of Leaves' and Deleuze and Guattari's Rhizome Theory written by Hazel Stuart and published by . This book was released on 2021-01-08 with total page 130 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'House of Leaves' by Mark Z. Danielewski is a Postmodern, Poststructural novel that broke boundaries when it was published in 2000. Twenty four years earlier, in 1976, philosophers Deleuze and Guattari proposed a theoretical model for the ultimate Poststructural book form in their paper 'Introduction to the Rhizome'. In this highly regarded academic paper from 2002, Hazel Stuart puts forward her argument for why Danielewski's 'House of Leaves' can be regarded a novel of truly rhizomatic form.

Danielewski is routinely hailed as the most exciting author in contemporary American literature, and he is celebrated by critics and fans alike.

Contributors: Nathalie Aghoro, Ridvan Askin, Hanjo Berressem, Aleksandra Bida, Brianne Bilsky, Joe Bray, Alison Gibbons, Julius Greve, Sebastian Huber, Sascha Pöhlmann, and Hans-Peter Söder.

Book excerpt: A father questions whether his son could be guilty of a terrible crime in this “gripping, beautifully written [and] devastating” thriller (Harlan Coben). Eric Moore has reason to be happy. He has a prosperous business, comfortable home, and stable family life in a quiet town. Then, on an ordinary night, his teenage son, Keith, is asked to babysit Amy Giordano, the eight-year-old daughter of a neighboring family. The next morning Amy is missing. Suddenly Eric is one of the stricken parents he has seen on television, professing faith in his child’s innocence. As the police investigation increasingly focuses on Keith, Eric must counsel his son, find him a lawyer, and protect him from the community’s steadily growing suspicion. Except that Eric is not so sure his son is innocent. And if Keith is not . . . and might do the same thing again . . . what then should a father do? Nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel, and winner of a Barry Award for Best Novel, Red Leaves is a “heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching” story of broken trust and one man’s heroic effort to hold fast the ties that bind him to everything he loves (New YorkDaily News). “The totally unexpected resolution is both shocking and perfectly apt.” —Publishers Weekly

Summary Book Review Sacred Leaves of Candomblé by Robert A. Voeks:
Download or read book Sacred Leaves of Candomblé written by Robert A. Voeks and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2010-01-01 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Candomblé, an African religious and healing tradition that spread to Brazil during the slave trade, relies heavily on the use of plants in its spiritual and medicinal practices. When its African adherents were forcibly transplanted to the New World, they faced the challenge not only of maintaining their culture and beliefs in the face of European domination but also of finding plants with similar properties to the ones they had used in Africa. This book traces the origin, diffusion, medicinal use, and meaning of Candomblé's healing pharmacopoeia—the sacred leaves. Robert Voeks examines such topics as the biogeography of Africa and Brazil, the transference—and transformation—of Candomblé as its adherents encountered both native South American belief systems and European Christianity, and the African system of medicinal plant classification that allowed Candomblé to survive and even thrive in the New World. This research casts new light on topics ranging from the creation of African American cultures to tropical rain forest healing floras.

Danielewski's House of Leaves, which uses three meta-fictional interpretive impasses-those of the writer, the reader, and the text itself-to convey to the reader the affects, limitations, and freedoms of their own acts of interpretation as they arise not just in House of Leaves but in all of literature.
