Description : Read Now American Tricksters by William J. Jackson and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. tricksters are known by their deeds. obviously not all the examples in american tricksters are full-blown mythological tricksters like coyote, raven, or the two brothers found in native american stories, or superhuman figures like the larger-than-life davy crockett of nineteenth-century tales. newer expressions of trickiness do share some qualities with the trickster archetype seen in myths. rock stars who break taboos and get away with it, heroes who overcome monstrous circumstances, crafty folk who find a way to survive and thrive when the odds are against them, men making spectacles of themselves by feeding their astounding appetites in public--all have some trickster qualities. each person, every living creature who ever faced an obstacle and needed to get around it, has found the built-in trickster impulse. impasses turn the trickster gene on, or stimulate the trick-performing imagination--that's life. to explore the ways and means of trickster maneuvers can alert us to pitfalls, help us appreciate tricks that are entertaining, and aid us in fending off ploys which drain our resources and ruin our lives. knowing more about the trickster archetype in our psyches helps us be more self-aware.

Description : Read Now An Other Tongue by Alfred Arteaga and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. as our millennium draws to a close, we find ourselves in the midst of great and rapid global changes with nations and political systems dissolving all around us and the world becoming one of shifting identities--of peoples unified and divided by such distinctions as nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, and colonial status. the articulation and construction of these distinctions, the very language of difference, is the subject of an other tongue. this collection of essays by a group of distinguished scholars, including norma alarcón, gayatri spivak, tzvetan todorov, and gerald vizenor, explores the interconnections between language and identity. the chicanos, the u.s./mexico borderland polyglots whose sense of history, nationality, and race is as mixed as their language, are the book's prime example. but the authors recognize that border zones, like diasporas and post-colonial relations, occur globally, and their discussion of hybrid or mestizo identities ranges from the united states to the caribbean to south asia to ireland. drawing on personal experience, readings of poetry and fiction, and cultural theory, the authors detail the politics of being human through the mediation of language. what does "shadow" mean to the native american indian, or diaspora to the east indian immigrant? how does british colonialism yet affect irish and indian nationalist literary production? why is the split between eastern and western european language use necessarily schizophrenic? so much of our sense of difference today is constructed as we speak, and an other tongue speaks with eloquence to this phenomenon and will be of great interest to those concerned with the discourse of post-colonial studies, critical theory, and the remapping of world literature. contributors. norma alarcón, alfred arteaga, juan bruce-novoa, cordelia chávez candelaria, michael g. cooke, edmundo desnoes, eugene c. eoyang, david lloyd, lydie moudileno, jean-luc nancy, tejaswini niranjana, ada savin, gayatri chakravorty spivak, michael smith, tzvetan todorov, luis a. torres, gerald vizenor

Description : Read Now Mother Tongue Theologies by Darren J. N. Middleton and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. recognizing that one-third of the world's christians practice their faith outside europe and north america, the fourteen essays in mother tongue theologies explore how international fiction depicts christianity's dramatic movement south and east of jerusalem as well as north and west. structured by geographical region, this collection captures the many ways in which people around the globe receive christianity. it also celebrates postcolonial literature's diversity. and it highlights non-western authors' biblical literacy, addressing how and why locally rooted christians invoke scripture in their pursuit of personal as well as social transformation. featured authors include fyodor dostoevsky, constantine cavafy, scott cairns, chinua achebe, madam afua kuma, earl lovelace, v. s. reid, ernesto cardenal, helena parente cunha, arundhati roy, mary martha sherwood, marguerite butler, r. m. ballantyne, rudyard kipling, nora okja keller, amy tan, albert wendt, and louise erdrich. individual essayists rightly come to different conclusions about christianity's global character. some connect missionary work with colonialism as well as cultural imperialism, for example, and yet others accentuate how indigenous cultures amalgamate with christianity's foreignness to produce mesmerizing, multiple identities. differences notwithstanding, mother tongue theologies delves into the moral and spiritual issues that arise out of the cut and thrust of native responses to western christian presence and pressure. ultimately, this anthology suggests the reward of listening for and to such responses, particularly in literary art, will be a wider and deeper discernment of the merits and demerits of post-western christianity, especially for christians living in the so-called post-christian west. list of contributors: isabel asensio-sierra di gan blackburn mini chandran evgenia v. cherkasova john estes jack a. hill j. a. jackson ellin sterne jimmerson ymitri mathison catherine winn merritt darren j. n. middleton mozella g. mitchell sinead moynihan j. stephen pearson eric j. sterling

Description : Read Now Trickster And Hero by Harold Scheub and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the trickster and the hero, found in so many of the world’s oral traditions, are seemingly opposed but often united in one character. trickster and hero provides a comparative look at a rich array of world oral traditions, folktales, mythologies, and literatures—from the odyssey, the epic of gilgamesh, and beowulf to native american and african tales. award-winning folklorist harold scheub explores the “trickster moment,” the moment in the story when the tale, the teller, and the listener are transformed: we are both man and woman, god and human, hero and villain. scheub delves into the importance of trickster mythologies and the shifting relationships between tricksters and heroes. he examines protagonists that figure centrally in a wide range of oral narrative traditions, showing that the true hero is always to some extent a trickster as well. the trickster and hero, scheub contends, are at the core of storytelling, and all the possibilities of life are there: we are taken apart and rebuilt, dismembered and reborn, defeated and renewed.

"brilliant. smith shows us how to bridge and link authors into an understanding of contemporary american literature that occupies shared ground, yet she insists on the imperative of educating ourselves in many u.s. traditions. the result is a book that meets the extremely difficult challenge of working multiculturally without either erasing or overdetermining difference. this discussion will have applications well beyond the group of authors discussed here."--elizabeth ammons, coeditor of tricksterism in turn-of-the-century american literature: a multicultural perspective "transcultural and thoroughly documented, this study of contemporary ethnic texts by women is comparative in the most scholarly sense. no reader of modern american fiction could argue against its trickster premises: the power to laugh at old worlds, and invent new ones."--kenneth lincoln, author of indi'n humor: bicultural play in native america "communicates keen insights on fictional techniques and cultural themes in clear, elegant and jargon-free language. i believe that this study will serve as an excellent model for future multicultural literary criticism."--bonnie tusmith, author of all my relatives "highly accessible to a diverse audience, writing tricksters forces readers to examine the power of storytelling traditions to cultural and individual survival. smith's cross-cultural discussion of the trickster is right on the cusp of an important, evolving analytical direction."--alanna kathleen brown, montana state university "few scholars have attempted to find the lines of contact and connection between ethnic writers. writing tricksters is fresh and original, an important addition to the growing corpus of truly multicultural critical texts."--joseph skerrett, coeditor of memory, narrative, and identity
