J. M. Coetzee, a postmodern South African author, contributed to the standardization of postmodern fiction with his fifth novel, Foe (1986), which it is a re-writing of Daniel Defoe’s novel... More > Robinson Crusoe (1719). However, Coetzee’s novel Foe treats the mechanism of narrative writing through re-writing; it is a mode of writing that is known to be postcolonial aspect is considered postmodern narratological technique. Therefore, I intend to explicate Coetzee’s narratological methods in the narrative writing by examining the narrational attitudes of Foe’s first-person female narrator, Susan Barton, who self-consciously reflects upon her story of Cruso’s island as a recollected history by making her role in telling her island story, a part of a larger framed story.< Less

More > awesome poems. Plath should have met Dickinson. Dylan Thomas too. Shelley. Poe. Lord Byron. Artaud and Baudelaire. Who can forget Hart Crane? Versus Eliot. John Berryman and Robert Lowell, who knew they joined these ranks? And of course, Celan. Whitman, whose “right hand points to landscapes of continents, and a plain public road…. Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land.” Together they would write great things, Plath thinks out loud, to no one in particular. She has brought her pen to paper. There is madness in the method, and sometimes a little bit or a whole lot of genius too.< Less
The Ianto Trilogy By John Russell Herbert
Paperback: $25.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
This is a work of pure fiction, deeply subjectivist. It is comprised of elements having been copyrighted earlier, some of which have been put out using my former pen name "Ianto Griffeth".... More > The Song of Ianto: Internal Exile of the Exposed Unknown, was actually the first-completed of the three novellas. Due to the despair and sin found therein, the "sequel", An Insurrection of Gods: Ianto's Redemption, took on that motif, that of "redemption". All these works undulate between a flat sort of existentialism and deeply inspired metanarrative. The "late-completed prequel", Prelude: Ianto's Montage of Dreams, was something I put together using very early writing juxtaposed with brand new material, some chronologically fitting, within the fictitious biography of the protagonist, some consciously "a-chronological", all this having to do with subjectivism, and metanarrative.< Less

More > grandfather, killed in 2027, apparently without progeny, his son, a man indicative of greater political phenomena, transitioning in 2024, and the protagonist proper. Ultimately, the work has tragic aspects of the "anti-hero", of Western literature, with a dash of the stoical optimism found in the "socialist realist hero". Mystically, it is something new. Political non-fiction, rhetoric and analysis, is included at the end.< Less

What happens in Ides? There is a murder. There is a letter, or a series of letters, sent from the narrator to himself on the ides of the month, which he can’t remember writing, and which... More > purport to tell the future of his life. There is a Collective. Attempting to chart the history of this Collective, a secret political group apparently set up by himself, the main narrator of Ides – who may or may not be called Robert Rocinante – is instead continually distracted by his need to describe one moment occurring (naturally) on the fifteenth of March. Unfortunately, the narrator suffers from some form of sickness (he suspects schizophrenia), and the exact nature of this moment eludes him. Is it a meeting between two lovers? Is it the day he and the female ‘other’ of his story set up the Collective? Is it the day he murdered her? Or did she commit suicide? Or was everything a lie, and in fact she had already killed him? The only thing we know for sure is that we know nothing...< Less

More > distill, catalogue and compile, Huggins' vast collection of single-spaced, handwritten journals and ledgers littering the second floor of Button House, a dilapidated mansion on the outskirts of Orchard Park, a Baltimore suburb. Is it but a case of riotous hypergraphia or does the University's adamancy suggest something else?
