Unacknowledged Legislation: Writers in the Public Sphere - gebunden oder broschiert

2001, ISBN: 1859847862

[SR: 450765], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781859847862], Verso Books, Verso Books, Book, [PU: Verso Books], 2001-01-24, Verso Books, Many see the meeting between literature and politics as fraught. In this engagement with novels and their authors, Christopher Hitchens takes inspiration from Shelley's description of the poet as an "unacknowledged legislator" and shows, that while the encounter between writers and those in power is not always smooth, it generally embodies a dialectic that is worth pursuit. Christopher Hitchens provides evidence that his own sallies as a political journalist are nourished by a close engagement with a broad sweep of novelists. Here, Norman Mailer and Gore Vidal's encounters with American revolution are scrutinised in interview; George Orwell's role as a fulcrum between left and right is carefully weighed-up; an appraisal of the fatwah issued against Salman Rushdie becomes a meditation on the West's misunderstood encounter with Islam; and Ernest Hemmingway is defended against the vagaries of fashion, as Hitchens turns an illuminating eye to lines from Oscar Wilde and P.G.

Unacknowledged Legislation - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9781859847862

ID: 7596515

What passes for political discussion in conventional circles rarely runs the gamut, even from A to B. To probe the deeper meanings of power requires inquiry beyond the vapidity of would-be Presidents, in Britain as well as the US. Fiction has traditionally been an alternative container for such ideas, sometimes a soapbox, sometimes a sanctuary, but always available and frequently used. Many have seen the meeting between literature and politics as necessarily fraught. Norman Podhoretz examined the intersection under the rubric "The Bloody Crossroads". Christopher Hitchens, in this sparkling engagement with novels and their authors, pursues a different approach. Taking inspiration from Shelley's description of the poet as an "unacknowledged legislator", he shows that while the encounter between writers and those in power is not always smooth, it generally embodies a dialectic that is well worth pursuit. Hitchens provides rich evidence that his own sallies as a political journalist, so effectively deployed with the publication of the best-selling No One Left to Lie To last year, are nourished by a close engagement with a broad sweep of novelists.

Unacknowledged Legislation: Writers in the Public Sphere - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 1859847862

ID: 3011162

A celebration of Percy Shelley's assertion that `poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world', these thirty-plus essays on writers from Oscar Wilde to Salman Rushdie dispel the myth of politics as a stone tied to the neck of literature; Norman Podhoretz's `bloody crossroads'. Instead Hitchens argues that when all parties in the state were agreed on a matter, it was the individual pens that created the space for a true moral argument. 19th century,20th century,classics,criticism and theory,education and reference,elections and political process,england,essays,essays and correspondence,europe Elections & Political Process, Verso
