Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,0, Universitat zu Koln, 104 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Funfzig Jahre lang, von der Publikation 1899 bis 1956, ist von The Awakening in Literaturwissenschaft, Literaturgeschichte und Literaturkritik kaum Notiz genommen worden. Eine irrationale Protagonistin, die bis in den Tod auf ihrer Identitat insistiert, dabei scheinbar nicht auf die "menschliche Herde" angewiesen ist und daruber dennoch nicht hysterisch oder psychotisch wird, stand ebenso im Widerspruch zum naturalisierenden viktorianischen Diskurs uber Weiblichkeit, wie die fiktionale Erkundung des Komplexes Kultur, Sexualitat und Tod Illusionen zu demontieren drohte, die als gesellschaftliches Fundament fungierten und bis heute fungieren. Dass diese konterdiskursive Infragestellung kulturerhaltender Ordnungsphantasmen zu einer massiven Verdrangung des Textes - nicht zuletzt unter dem Signum der Kulturversagung - gefuhrt hat, uberrascht kaum. Der Tenor zeitgenossischer Rezensionen bezeugt eine signifikante Ablehnung: " ...] it leaves one sick of human nature" (Awakening: 163), "its disagreeable glimpses of sensuality are repellent" (Awakening: 166), "gilded dirt" (Awakening: 167), "an essentially vulgar story" (Awakening: 168), "unhealthily introspective and morbid in feeling" (Awakening: 170), "unwholesome in its influence" (Awakening: 172). Es handelt sich dabei um viel mehr als nur um "vestiges of Victorian prudery" (Walker 1993: 141). Eine derart vehemente, mehr moralisch als asthetisch begrundete Ablehnung lasst vermuten, dass der Roman an neuralgische Punkte der Kultur wie auch der menschlichen Identitat ruhrt. Es geht um Fragen, die nicht gestellt werden durfen. Dass Nietzsche und Freud sich mit ahnlichen Reaktionen konfrontiert sahen, ist ebenso wenig ein Zufall wie die Tatsache, dass ihre Gedanken sehr produktiv fur die Interpretation des Textes genutzt werden konnen. Welche diskursiven"

It was supposed to be a time for healing. But it soon turned to horror. Paul and Penny Mason are spending the summer at the family lake house with their troubled, teenage daughter, Elsie, in a last-ditch effort to save their crumbling marriage. But the tension between them only thickens when they arrive at their once-idyllic summer home, a place that now feels eerily cold and darkly foreboding. It quickly becomes clear that all is not right. Penny is plagued by horrific, recurring nightmares. Paul and Elsie are surprised by the curious appearance of a sad, strange woman—a woman who purports to know them, but who calls them by names that are not their own. The mystery only deepens when they discover an antique box in the house. Inside is a photo of the woman, alive in a distant past. Who is she? And what is the source of the seeping, chilly discomfort that has suddenly settled over the family? The answer lies within Penny’s disturbing dreams and Elsie’s fragile emotional state—and when long-buried secrets reveal themselves, it will be the most frightening day of their lives. . . .

More than a mere argument in support of freedom and equality for women, it is a compelling depiction of the subtle burdens that had been traditionally borne by women and the awareness that perhaps there are options.

"The Awakening: The Last Great Paradigm Shift" is a refreshing and enlightening look into the seemingly unexplainable malaise that has taken hold in the modern day Christian church. As we take a peek into the twenty-first Century American Church, we see what appears to be a new phenomenon that is unfolding. This development has both Pastor and parishioner grappling for answers. There is a group within the Church, which, in large part, has provided the inspiration for the writing of this book. This group is experiencing a "falling away" within the end time Church of today. This group of believers still loves God and has a strong affinity for the things of God and, yet, they are experiencing an emptiness that is overwhelming and, furthermore, are no longer getting the satisfaction they once received from the Church. The Church and its status quo attitude and behavior is no longer fulfilling, satisfying or gratifying and the resultant emptiness is overbearing. And two questions that beg to be answered are why is this state of apostasy now so prominent in the Church and how did we get here? This book, among other things, tackles these issues from both a Biblical and historical perspective. This book is truly a must read for the end time believer in search of spiritual truth, insight and awakening. This book will challenge the modern day believer to look at where they are, to choose who they are going to serve and if they are willing to do it God's way. After having read this book, I feel challenged all the more. Rev. P Spears The Awakening is truly enlightening for the seeking, searching, 21st century believer. A refreshing revelation of Biblical truth. E Beech
