Philosemitismus

Author:
Publisher: Verlag Wilhelm Fink
ISBN: 9783846753019
Release Date: 2017-06-05
Genre: Literary Criticism

Wer von ›Philosemitismus‹ spricht, gerät unweigerlich in eine Debatte über den richtigen und falschen Umgang mit dem Judentum, er knüpft im schlimmsten Fall an eine antisemitische Diktion an. Er definiert nicht mehr, sondern diffamiert. Es besteht dennoch kein Grund, den Philosemitismus als Gegenstand einer wissenschaftlichen Analyse von vornherein zu verwerfen; stellt er doch – jenseits der Polemik – eine jahrhundertealte komplexe Schreib- und Redeform, mithin: ein diskursives Phänomen dar. Der vorliegende Band will den Regeln einer philosemitischen Rhetorik und Poetik auf den Grund gehen und begibt sich auf Spurensuche in der deutschsprachigen Literaturgeschichte der Neuzeit.

Illuminating Letters

Author: Paul C. Gutjahr
Publisher: Univ of Massachusetts Press
ISBN: 1558497625
Release Date: 2009-06-01
Genre: Design

What do we read when we read a text? The author's words, of course, but is that all? The prevailing publishing ethic has insisted that typography--the selection and arrangement of type and other visual elements on a page--should be an invisible, silent, and deferential servant to the text it conveys. This book contests that conventional point of view. Looking at texts ranging from the King James Bible to contemporary comic strips, the contributors to Illuminating Letters examine the seldom considered but richly revealing relationships between a text's typography and its literary interpretation. The essays assume no previous typographic knowledge or expertise; instead they invite readers primarily concerned with literary and cultural meanings to turn a more curious eye to the visual and physical forms of a specific text or genre. As the contributors show, closer inspection of those forms can yield fresh insights into the significance of a text's material presentation, leading readers to appreciate better how presentation shapes understandings of the text's meanings and values. The case studies included in the volume amplify its two overarching themes: one set explores the roles of printers and publishers in manipulating, willingly or not, the meaning and reception of texts through typographic choices; the other group examines the efforts of authors to circumvent or subvert such mediation by directly controlling the typographic presentation of their texts. Together these essays demonstrate that choices about type selection and arrangement do indeed help to orchestrate textual meaning. In addition to the editors, contributors include Sarah A. Kelen, Beth McCoy, Steven R. Price, Leon Jackson, and Gene Kannenberg Jr.
