The poem in the college classroom usually appears as an autonomous object to be dissected, thus revealing its internal relations--image patterns, meter and rhyme schemes, and types of figurative language. Jeffrey C. Robinson, a college teacher for many years, believes that there is a better way to teach poetry. His conviction, developed over many years and acted upon in his own classroom, has led to a pedagogy that urges the teaching of each poem by examining it in its various contexts. The result, as expressed in this book, is a moving exploration of the relationships among scholarship, teaching, and learning, of critical importance to all teachers of literature, as well as to those concerned with educational theory. Robinson demonstrates his pedagogy with a case study--the teaching of Wordsworth's "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood." He interprets the students' fascinating and moving confusions and discoveries as the "Ode" loses its consoling aura and as their thinking takes a correspondingly more energetic, critical, and self-reflective turn. As a teacher, the author--whose muted autobiography itself enriches the context--has had his own concerns to which this book provides some answers: How would a prolonged encounter with one poem significantly alter students' learning? Would the poem, seen in its social relations, become less an object of worship and more an occasion for the students' own exploration of the place of art in society and in their own education? This book has emerged out of these questions. As well as being a full rehearsal of the actual literary and historical contexts of Wordsworth's "Ode," it is a meditation on the sociology of literary education and necessarily the learning apparatus of the late adolescent.

In the twentieth century, literature was under threat. Not only was there the challenge of new forms of oral and visual culture. Even literary education and literary criticism could sometimes actually distance novels, poems and plays from their potential audience. This is the trend which Roger D. Sell now seeks to reverse. Arguing that literature can still be a significant and democratic channel of human interactivity, he sees the most helpful role of teachers and critics as one of mediation. Through their own example they can encourage readers to empathize with otherness, to recognize the historical achievement of significant acts of writing, and to respond to literary authors' own faith in communication itself. By way of illustration, he offers major re-assessments of five canonical figures (Vaughan, Fielding, Dickens, T.S. Eliot, and Frost), and of two fascinating twentieth-century writers who were somewhat misunderstood (the novelist William Gerhardie and the poet Andrew Young).

As traced by Roger D. Sell, literary communication is a process of community-making. As long as literary authors and those responding to them respect each other’s human autonomy, literature flourishes as an enjoyable, though often challenging mode of interaction that is truly dialogical in spirit. This gives rise to author-respondent communities whose members represent existential commonalities blended together with historical differences. These heterogeneous literary communities have a larger social significance, in that they have long served as counterweights to the hegemonic tendencies of modernity, and more recently to postmodernity’s well-intentioned but restrictive politics of identity. In post-postmodern times, their ethos is increasingly one of pleasurable egalitarianism. The despondent anti-hedonism of the twentieth century intelligentsia can now seem rather dated. Some of the papers selected for this volume develop Sell’s ideas in mainly theoretical terms. But most of them offer detailed criticism of particular anglophone writers, ranging from Shakespeare, Ben Jonson and other poets and dramatists of the early modern period, through Wordsworth and Coleridge, to Dickens, Pinter, and Rushdie.

Pierre Bourdieu and the Literary Field brings together leading specialists from across disciplines and national borders to reflect on the contribution of one of the twentieth century's pre-eminent sociologists to literary studies, and brings us up to date with developments in his wake. The authors examine and present Bourdieu's theory of the literary field, the mediations that occur between 'literature' and 'society', its re-applications to the field of Chinese literature and its extension to 'world literary space'. They also explore Bourdieu's approach to literature 'in practice', which sometimes deviates from his stringent methodological prescriptions - shedding new light not only on Bourdieu's work on literature, but also on his sociology more generally. This book is of particular interest to researchers and students in the fields of literary studies, cultural studies and sociology.Key features of this book include:*An introduction to and critical assessment of Bourdieu's theory of the literary field.*A summary of the latest theoretical developments in 'Bourdieusian' research on literature.*A study and appraisal of Bourdieu's approach to literature 'in practice', including to writings by Flaubert, Faulkner and Pascal.*The first translation in English of Bourdieu's commentary on 'Automne malade' by Guillaume Apollinaire, with accompanying analysis.

Outlining the controversies that have surrounded the academic discipline of English Literature since its institutionalization in the late nineteenth century, this important book draws on a range of archival sources. It addresses issues that are central to the identity of academic English - how the subject came into existence, and what makes it a specialist discipline of knowledge - in a manner that illuminates many of the crises that have affected the development of modern English studies. Atherton also addresses contemporary arguments about the teaching of literary criticism, including an examination of the reforms to A-Level literature.

Arguing that the location of idealised maternity for women is in the act of writing educational discourse rather than in the physical performance of the maternal role, Davies plots the formation of a written paradigm of maternal education that associates maternity with educational authority. She examines a wide range of genres by authors that include Samuel Richardson, Mary Wollstonecraft, Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen.

This selection of papers from the ITI s landmark First International Colloquium on Literary Translation includes provocative perspectives on the teaching, research and status of literary education in universities. By way of introduction "Peter Bush" looks at strategies for raising the profile of the theory and practice of literary translation, its professionalisation and role in the development of national and international cultures. "Nicholas Round" and "Edwin Gentzler" explore undergraduate teaching of translation in the UK and the US while "Douglas Robinson" gives a Woody Allenish frame to an experience of pedagogy. "Susan Bassnett" sets out an overview of the development of research in Translation Studies that is complemented by case studies of translations of Shakespeare s Letter-Puns by "Dirk Delabastita" and of Molly Bloom s Soliloquy by "Maria Angeles Code Parrilla." "Kirsten Malmkjaer" and "Masako Taira" respectively review translating Hans Christian Andersen and the Japanese particle "ne" as examples of the relationship between linguistics and literary translation. "Ian Craig" examines the impact of censorship on the translation of children s fiction in Francoist Spain. Developing the international perspective, "Else Vieira" considers paradigms for translation in Latin America from concretist poetics to post-modernism

The continual rise of English as a global lingua franca has meant that English literature, both as a discipline and as a tool in ESL and EFL classrooms, is being used in varied ways outside the inner circle of English. This edited collection provides an overview of English literature education in the Asia-Pacific in global times, bringing to international attention a rich understanding of the trends, issues and challenges specific to nations within the Asia-Pacific region. Comprising contributions from Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam, the collection addresses the diversity of learners in different national, cultural and teaching contexts. In doing so, it provides insights into historical and current trends in literature education, foregrounds specific issues and challenges in policymaking and implementation, presents practical matters concerning text selection, use of literature in the language classroom, innovative practices in literature education, and raises pressing and important questions about the nature, purpose and importance of literature education in global times.

In the eighteenth century, literature meant learned writings; by the twentieth century, literature had come to be identified with imaginative, aesthetically significant works, and academic literary studies had developed special protocols for interpreting and valuing literary texts. Literature in the Making examines what happened in between: how literature came to be more precisely specified and valued; how it was organized into genres, canons, and national traditions; and how it became the basis for departments of modern languages and literatures in research universities. Modern literature, the version of literature familiar today, was an international invention, but it was forged when literary cultures, traditions, and publishing industries were mainly organized nationally. Literature in the Making examines modern literature's coalescence and institutionalization in the United States, considered as an instructive instance of a phenomenon that was going global. Since modern literature initially offered a way to formulate the value of legacy texts by authors such as Homer, Cervantes, and Shakespeare, however, the development of literature and literary culture in the U.S. was fundamentally transnational. Literature in the Making argues that Shakespeare studies, one of the richest tracts of nineteenth-century U.S. literary culture, was a key domain in which literature came to be valued both for fuelling modern projects and for safeguarding values and practices that modernity put at risk-a foundational paradox that continues to shape literary studies and literary culture. Bringing together the histories of literature's competing conceptualizations, its print infrastructure, its changing status in higher education, and its life in public culture during the long nineteenth century, Literature in the Making offers a robust account of how and why literature mattered then and matters now. By highlighting the lively collaboration between academics and non-academics that prevailed before the ascendancy of the research university starkly divided experts from amateurs, Literature in the Making also opens new possibilities for envisioning how academics might partner with the reading public.
