Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. In Techniques of Subversion in Modern Literature , Booker maintains that literary works contribute to genuine social change. When read with transgressive energy , he says, these works chip away at oppressive political structures and undermine authoritarian ideologies. The hard evidence of such power is the terror with which totalitarian regimes traditionally have regarded dangerous literary works. A number of recent theoretical discourses frame his exploration of the dynamics of literary transgressions, including especially the notions of the carnival as put forth by Mikhail Bakhtin and of the abject as put forth by Julia Kristeva. What this book adds to recent discussion is the specific application of the theory to detailed readings of such authors as Rushdie, Carter, Barnes, Pynchon, Fowles, Sorrentino, Wittig, Calvino and even Chaucer. All the authors share a tendency to break rules, transgress boundaries, destabilize hierarchies, and question authority, Booker says. Techniques of Subversion should be of especial interest to scholars of modern and postmodern literature, particularly those who approach it within the context of poststructuralism, cultural criticism and politics.

Synopsis :  Mario Vargas Llosa is one of the world's most respected and widely read living writers.  His work is marked by technical sophistication and by its alliance with a variety of trends in modern culture.  To date little criticism of his work has made use of the important developments in literary theory in the past two decades.  This book does that, analyzing Vargas Llosa's place in modern and postmodern criticism.
 

Book Description:

"A broad perspective on an important author and his works."--Marvin Lewis, University of Missouri

"A meritorious contribution to our knowledge of contemporary Latin American literature and culture."--Jonathan Tittler, Cornell University

Mario Vargas Llosa is one of the world's most respected and widely read living writers.  His work is marked by technical sophistication and by its alliance with a variety of trends in modern culture.  To date little criticism of his work has made use of the important developments in literary theory in the past two decades.  This book does that, analyzing Vargas Llosa's place in modern and postmodern criticism.

 Booker begins with an analysis of The Green House within the context of modernism, using this early work to develop several hypotheses concerning the differences between modernism and postmodernism in literature.  He tests these hypotheses in the remainder of the book through detailed readings of Vargas Llosa's later novels (from Captain Pantoja and the Special Service onward) and within the context of theoretical discussions of postmodernism by such critics as Fredric Jameson, Terry Eagleton, Linda Hutcheon, and Andreas Huyssen.  Booker's specific readings of Vargas Llosa's work are also informed by the insights of a number of critics, including Mikhail Bakhtin, Michel Foucault, and Theodor Adorno.

 The readings focus on the formal characteristics of Vargas Llosa's writing and on the intense political engagement--characterized in later works by skepticism toward the claims of various political programs--that marks his career.  As a result, this study yields insights into both the aesthetics and the politics of postmodernism, and it should be useful to those interested in Latin American literature and in the social and cultural landscapes of Vargas Llosa's works.

 The book ends with a lucid description of published theories of modernism and postmodernism.
