Summary Book Review The Flight of the Mind by Thomas C. Caramagno:
Download or read book The Flight of the Mind written by Thomas C. Caramagno and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 1992-07-27 with total page 388 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this major new book on Virginia Woolf, Caramagno contends psychobiography has much to gain from a closer engagement with science. Literary studies of Woolf's life have been written almost exclusively from a psychoanalytic perspective. They portray Woolf as a victim of the Freudian "family romance," reducing her art to a neurotic evasion of a traumatic childhood. But current knowledge about manic-depressive illness—its genetic transmission, its biochemistry, and its effect on brain function—reveals a new relationship between Woolf's art and her illness. Caramagno demonstrates how Woolf used her illness intelligently and creatively in her theories of fiction, of mental functioning, and of self structure. Her novels dramatize her struggle to imagine and master psychic fragmentation. They helped her restore form and value to her own sense of self and lead her readers to an enriched appreciation of the complexity of human consciousness.

Summary Book Review "To Make Us See What We See": Impressionism in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness by Indrani Chaudhuri :
Download or read book "To Make Us See What We See": Impressionism in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness written by Indrani Chaudhuri and published by Blue Rose Publishers. This book was released on 2021-05-26 with total page 195 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is an intriguing and intimate study of the dialogues forged between different forms of art, paintings and texts in particular. It entwines art with literature to create a complex yet marvellous mosaic of textures hitherto undiscussed in this manner. Reading, here, becomes both painting and travelling through Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and the works of the French Impressionist painters of the nineteenth century. Through an exploration of the distinctive characteristics of the paintings of Monet, Manet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cézanne and even Van Gogh and Gauguin, this book tries to decipher the codes and symbols of Conrad’s enigmatic novella. By taking the help of intertextuality, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches, detours and retours through time and space, this book offers extensive readings of texts on art, literature and Conrad’s works. Reading Heart of Darkness in this manner emerges as a kind of journey through the continents of imperial Europe and of colonized Africa, through diverse cultures, imaginary geographies, psychological processes that separate one human from another, through the metaphors and metonymies of the modern malaise that vacillated from Darwinian theories of evolution to Nietzsche’s proclamation of the death of God.
Summary Book Review On Food, Sex And God by Michele Roberts:
Download or read book On Food, Sex And God written by Michele Roberts and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2012-04-19 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Food, sex and God' is what Michèle Roberts answers when strangers ask what she writes about, and indeed, she has made these subjects her own in her fiction and her poetry. Now we see that extended to non-fiction in this collection of essays, reviews and articles. Ranging over people and places, writing and imagination, books, spirituality, art and food, Roberts shows herself to be a perceptive and provocative commentator on contemporary life. From a funny monologue on would-be writers who prefer last year's creative writing teacher (male); to musings on a writer's life and work; to reviews of Marina Warner and Jeanette Winterson; to a magnificent piece on autobiographical writing and the imagination, this collection adds to our understanding of her as writer. Her keen sense of the outrageous, her striving for intellectual honesty and her ability to find the sensual in the everyday, leave one in no doubt about a talent that is as original and generous in non-fiction as in her celebrated novels.

Summary Book Review Virginia Woolf by John Batchelor:
Download or read book Virginia Woolf written by John Batchelor and published by CUP Archive. This book was released on 1991-02-22 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Virginia Woolf (1882-941) is one of the most interesting writers of our century. In this introductory book, John Batchelor tells the story of her life and writing career, highlighting the important aspects of Woolf's temperament: her passion, her learning, her acute intelligence, her lesbianism, her self-absorption. He discusses the works, devoting separate chapters to the five major novels: Jacob's Room, with its highly ironic celebration of masculinity; Mrs Dalloway, with its odd time structures and pointed observation of 1920s London society; To the Lighthouse, which can be read as an elegy for Woolf's own family as well as a great work of modernism; The Waves, extending the narrative methods of its predecessors; and Between the Acts, Woolf's complex satire of the Condition-of-England novel. In addition, Professor Batchelor looks at Woolf's uneasy relation to modernism and the question of her feminism. This book, equipped with a chronology and guide to recommended further reading, is an ideal companion for students and new readers of Woolf.

Summary Book Review Religion, Secularism, and the Spiritual Paths of Virginia Woolf by Kristina K. Groover:
Download or read book Religion, Secularism, and the Spiritual Paths of Virginia Woolf written by Kristina K. Groover and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2019-12-13 with total page 214 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Religion, Secularism, and the Spiritual Paths of Virginia Woolf offers an expansive interdisciplinary study of spirituality in Virginia Woolf's writing, drawing on theology, psychology, geography, history, gender and sexuality studies, and other critical fields. The essays in this collection interrogate conventional approaches to the spiritual, and to Woolf’s work, while contributing to a larger critical reappraisal of modernism, religion, and secularism. While Woolf’s atheism and her sharp criticism of religion have become critical commonplaces, her sometimes withering critique of religion conflicts with what might well be called a religious sensibility in her work. The essays collected here take up a challenge posed by Woolf herself: how to understand her persistent use of religious language, her representation of deeply mysterious human experiences, and her recurrent questions about life's meaning in light of her disparaging attitude toward religion. These essays argue that Woolf's writing reframes and reclaims the spiritual in alternate forms; she strives to find new language for those numinous experiences that remain after the death of God has been pronounced.
