Postcolonial Approaches to the European Middle Ages: Translating Cultures - Taschenbuch

2012, ISBN: 9780521172271

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 583699181

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2012. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. Our foremost theorist of myth, fairytales, and folktales explores the magical realm of the imagination where carpets fly, objects speak, dreams reveal hidden truths, and genies grant prophetic wishes. Stranger Magic examines the wondrous tales of the Arabian Nights, their profound impact on the West, and the progressive exoticization of magic since the eighteenth century, when the first European translations appeared. The Nights seized European readers' imaginations during the sicle des Lumires, inspiring imitations, spoofs, turqueries, extravaganzas, pantomimes, and mauresque tastes in dress and furniture. Writers from Voltaire to Goethe to Borges, filmmakers from Raoul Walsh on, and countless authors of children's books have adapted its stories. What gives these tales their enduring power to bring pleasure to readers and audiences? Their appeal, Marina Warner suggests, lies in how the stories' magic stimulates the creative activity of the imagination. Their popularity during the Enlightenment was no accident: dreams, projections, and fantasies are essential to making the leap beyond the frontiers of accepted knowledge into new scientific and literary spheres. The magical tradition, so long disavowed by Western rationality, underlies modernity's most characteristic developments, including the charmed states of brand-name luxury goods, paper money, and psychoanalytic dream interpretation. In Warner's hands, the Nights reveal the underappreciated cultural exchanges between East and West, Islam and Christianity, and cast light on the magical underpinnings of contemporary experience, where mythical principles, as distinct from religious belief, enjoy growing acceptance. These tales meet the need for enchantment, in the safe guise of oriental costume. Marina Warner is Professor of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies at the University of Essex and a distinguished writer of fiction, criticism, and history. "My favorite work of non-fiction this year was Marina Warner's Stranger Magic: Charmed States and the Arabian Nights. In her exploration of this immense, protean and much-translated Arabic collection of folk and fairy tales (fifteen of them banded in here at intervals) she has found a subject which seems an ideal fit for her own particular cast of mind. This book is like one of the densely patterned carpets it describes, rich in overlapping narrative strands and in associative weave of thought. A gorgeous last chapter, 'The Couch: A Case History,' glides from the coded site of passion, the flying sofa, to the magic carpet via prayer mat, festive balcony hanging, nomadic house, Smyrna rug on Freud's analytical couchÑrecalling the structural importance of eavesdropping in the Arabian NightsÑthen a description of Gabbeh, an Iranian film about tribal carpet-weaving, and back to Freud and his thoughts on levitation and sexual delight (with a side swoop over Goethe's Faust calling for a magic cloak)."ÑHelen Simpson, The Times Literary Supplement "In Stranger Magic Warner surveys just how pervasively The Arabian Nights has influenced art and literature since the eighteenth century. On the surface, her book covers what more dogmatic critics would call the West's cultural appropriation of the EastÉ Stranger Magic is packed with information and insightÉ Warner writes with clarity, and sometimes with exquisite beautyÉ Warner possesses an exceptionally synoptic mind, almost Sherlockian in its sensitivity to connections and repeated motifsÉ Stranger Magic is, in fact, simply the latest in an exhilarating series of studies that reexamine the West's fantastic imagination. From the Beast to the Blonde, No Go the Bogeyman, and Phantasmagoria explore the cultural meanings of folktales and Mother Goose stories, children's literature, and fairy tales, the fearful monsters, beasts, and ogres of nightmare, and all the ways humankind has attempted to represent the spiritual. Ranged together, these substantial works, now joined by Stranger Magic, look solid and magisterial on the bookshelf, calling to mind the encyclopedic scholarship we associate with an earlier age. Nonetheless, while Marina Warner is as learned as any Victorian polymath, she also employs contemporary feminist theory and the insights of cultural studies to make us look once more, or look more deeply, at the history of cinema, art, theater, and literature. Each of her books is an Aladdin's cave of wonders."ÑMichael Dirda, The Barnes & Noble Review "InsightfulÉ It's fascinating and highly informed."ÑDoug Johnstone, Big Issue "WonderfulÉ Warner is herself something of a Shahrazad, though she weaves her account under less threatening auspicesÉ Many of the stories in the Nights take place in a legendary Baghdad or draw on older Persian sources, but a fewÑsuch as the story of Hayqar the WiseÑdate back to ancient Egyptian tales from the seventh century BC. Warner is alert to these earlier echoes but she is more interested in the far-reaching cultural and literary impact of the Nights on artists, composers and writersÉ From Voltaire and Goethe to Hans Christian Andersen and William Beckford down to Jorge Luis Borges and Italo CalvinoÑon all of whom Warner offers illuminating discussionsÑthe influence of the Nights has been pervasive; but composers (such as Mozart), artists and designers, illustrators and film-makers have also fallen under their spell."ÑEric Ormsby, Literary Review "I was entranced by Marina Warner's encyclopedic and pathbreaking study, Stranger Magic: Charmed States and the Arabian Nights."ÑPankaj Mishra, The Guardian "Marina Warner's Stranger Magic has a double mission: On the one hand, the author traces, with a swelling, orchestral richness, why the [Arabian] Nights held such potent sway over figures like Coleridge, becoming a runaway best seller in Europe and retaining a lock grip over the Western imagination for generations. But she also shows why its themes and preoccupations remain relevant todayÉ Stranger Magic explores, with immense learning and panache, how it might be possible to develop an intellectual, reasoned relationship to magic, conjuring an alternative to the binary choice between Enlightenment thought and esotericaÉ Warner sprinkles the historical detective work of Stranger Magic with her own versions of key scenes from the Nights, and her verve as a storyteller is among the book's delightsÉ Stranger Magic is a large volume, and it can sometimes be difficult not to get disoriented, or suffer what Warner nicely dubs 'eyeskip' in the twists and involutions of the arabesque patterns being traced. However, one of the merits of the book is that it teaches us why getting lost now and again can be salutary. In our absurdly busy, bottom-line-fetishizing lives, digression has become a bad word. But it's precisely the wide-roaming, whirling vicissitudes of Shahrazad's tales that dazzle the sultan and keep her alive. Stranger Magic reveals that the fate of the human spirit hangs not by a single thread, but by an extravagant skein of fancy."ÑGeorge Prochnik, Bookforum "Marina Warner's Stranger Magic is as absorbing, wise and playful as the Arabian Nights tales themselves. A book about the triumph of imagination over experience."ÑJeanette Winterson, The Guardian "Noted mythographer and novelist Marina Warner here turns her piercing gaze to one of the most influential set of fables ever assembled, The Thousand and One Nights. Analyzing the inner meanings of Scheherazade's tall tales, she finds in these familiar narratives fresh import and life-changing potential."ÑThe Barnes & Noble Review "This learned, lively, and well-written book concerns the wide-ranging influence of The Arabian NightsÑa polyvocal anthology of world myths, fables and fairy talesÑon Western cultureÉ Warner's densely detailed, loose, baggy monster of a book covers an impressive array of subjects from Voltaire and Goethe to Borges and Nabokov."ÑJeffrey Meyers, Booklist "Warner's analysis of Arabian Nights aims at redefining the relationship between East and West, reason and imagination, science and magic."ÑS. Gomaa, Choice "[Warner] astonishes with the granularity of her accounts of the impact of these stories on their original European readersÉ What kind of stories is Shahrazad telling us now? Immediately obvious is the relevance of Arabian Nights to crucial questions of perception of the East by the West during this season of Arab thaw and Iranian freezeÉ Warner does a good job, especially in her 'Conclusion: "All the story of the night told overÉ"' to tease out these new interpretative figures in the textual carpet."ÑBrad Gooch, The Daily Beast "Warner's massive work remains a powerful testimony to the enduring appeal of the 1,001 Nights. Complex, frequently subtleÉher book will reward readers with sophisticated insights into the cultural exchange between West and EastÑa bit like The Arabian Nights itself."ÑPaul McMichael Nurse, The Globe and Mail "If we might forget how central [The Arabian Nights] tales are to our culture, Marina Warner's wondrous Stranger Magic is a scholarly excursion around some of the stories, her mind as rich and fascinating as the stories themselves, taking us on a magic carpet from Borges and Goethe, to Edward Said and the movies."ÑHanif Kureishi, The Guardian "Stranger Magic is an enormous work, 436 densely erudite and eclectic pages plus another hundred of glossaries and notes. In its relentless connecting up of diverse stories, from the Inferno to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, it's reminiscent of Christopher Booker's brick-sized Seven Basic Plots. Warner's chapters, allocated into five parts, are beautifully illustrated and interspersed with 15 tales concisely retoldÉ Stranger Magic is a scholarly work that often reads like a fireside conversation. It's encyclopedic, a book to be savored in slices."ÑRobin Yassin-Kassab, The Guardian "Warner's gentle authority proves to be the perfect guide not only through many of the tales themselves but also through their attendant history, and theories about them. What she's really exploring is the West's fascination with the Orient, and how it has accommodated that alternative culture into its own: why was The Arabian Nights, a text that wasn't sacred and wasn't even valued, the one that the West alighted on so eagerly? The fabulism, the shape-shifting, the play between the figurative and the literal, that is found in the tales, speaks to something in the West's psyche, a need for fantasy. Warner cleverly relates this to 20th-century psychiatry (Freud and his dreams), and new technologies such as cinema and aeroplanes (the allure of that magic carpet). Her immersion in her subject makes for an enthusiasm that proves to be infectious."ÑLesley McDowell, The Independent "Wondrous and lucidÉ When it comes to the tales themselves and their fantastical content, Warner is an excellent guide and a stylish storyteller in her own right: her renderings of 15 of the stories punctuate the bookÉ The remarkable feat she has pulled off in Stranger Magic [is] nothing less than a history of magic, storytelling and centuries of cultural exchange between east and west. All in the guise of a book about one book, albeit an inexhaustible one. There are more dutiful histories of those subjects, just as there are scholarly studies of Arabian Nights that adequately describe its form, politics or translations but never truly fly. The product of Warner's meticulous research is a weighty volume that feels airborne on every page."ÑBrian Dillon, The Irish Times "Warner has long been recognized as one of the foremost scholars of the fairy tale and myth. Here, she brings her characteristic erudition and insight to one of the great works of world literature, The Arabian Nights, using the best-known as well as some of the lesser-known stories to demonstrate how the Nights contributed to the rise of magical thinking across European and world cultureÉ She ably demonstrates how the tales loom large in European culture and have provided the basis for much creativity and imagination since their discovery by the West in the 18th centuryÉ General readers and scholars in folklore, history, and Arabic literature alike will appreciate Warner's ability to make connections between the Nights and the way the stories have resonated over time and space."ÑDavid S. Azzolina, Library Journal "More even than an inquisitive, authoritative study of one of the greatest imaginative enterprises of human history, this is a further chapter in Warner's unfolding of the powerÑthe magical power as it may beÑof the magical imaginationÉ Some of the most original and compelling arguments in Stranger Magic concern the uses of Arabian flights of fantasy as vehicles for scientific and technological speculationÉ Jung said that the job of the mythographer might be not so much to spell out the meaning of myth as to 'dream the myth onward.' This is in a sense what Warner has undertaken to do, for her account of The Arabian Nights and their transmigrations is itself knitted into the fabric of the history she presents. Each section of her account is prefaced by a retelling of one of the stories, usually a neglected or less well known one, and in the writing and the reading, the separate threads of her argumentÑher accounts of the history of magic, or the responses of particular writers to the stories, or the nature of magical things, or the politics of enchantmentÑpass under and over each other. Warner's scholarly imagination has never been less than compendious, but it has never before been so intricately wrought, or drawn together with such ingenuity the hitherto distinct currents of her writing, as mythographer, fabulist, critic, speculator and polemicist."ÑSteven Connor, The London Review of Books "Marina Warner is a veteran magus, and an adept mythographer of the vast global traditions of magic, metaphor and mythÉ Pursuing the enigmas of imaginative desire throughout h, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2012, Cambridge University Press.
