War and Words

Author: Wojciech Drąg
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 9781443894241
Release Date: 2016-05-11
Genre: Fiction

Despite the vast body of texts inspired by warfare – from The Iliad to Maus – war writing is perpetually haunted by the notions of unrepresentability and inadequacy. War and Words examines the methods, conventions and pitfalls of constructing verbal accounts of military conflict in literature and the media. This multifocal study draws on a wide array of theoretical perspectives, including feminism, posthumanism, masculinity, trauma, spatiality and media studies, and brings together such diverse material as canonical literature, war veterans’ testimonies, imaginative fiction, computer games, English curricula, and Al-Qaeda’s propaganda pieces. In five consecutive sections – “Spreading War Propaganda”, “Reconstructing War Spaces”, “Envisioning War”, “Gendering War”, and “Teaching War” – the contributors consider war in its manifold aspects: as an ideological tool used for propaganda purposes, as a spatial reconstruction performed for the critical reassessment of past conflicts, as a projection (or extrapolation) of possible future conflicts and their social repercussions, as a political statement to deconstruct the oppressive nature of violence, and, finally, as a didactic tool to foster empathy. This collection will appeal primarily to academics specialising in English and American literature, but also to those researching media, gender, and game studies.

Pigeon English

Author: Stephen Kelman
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827074348
Release Date: 2011-01-29
Genre: Fiction

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ
