[EAN: 9781859847862], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Verso, London and New York], COLLECTIBLE, Language Arts & Disciplines|Authorship, Literary Criticism|American|General, Literary Criticism|General, Jacket, xx, 358 pages; 25 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. "Many have seen the encounter between literature and politics as necessarily fraught. Norman Podhoretz, for instance, examined the intersection under the rubric 'The Bloody Crossroads' (a term he borrowed from Lionel Trilling). Christopher Hitchens, in this sparkling engagement with literature and its producers, prefers a different approach. Taking inspiration from Shelley's description of the poet as an 'unacknowledged legislator', he shows that whilst the engagement between writers and those in power is not always smooth, it generally embodies a dialectic that is worth investigation. Hitchens provides rich evidence that his own sallies as a political journalist are nourished by an erudite familiarity with a broad sweep of novelists, essayists and poets. In these pages Oscar Wilde's profound radicalism is uncovered; George Orwell's role as a fulcrum between left and right is carefully appraised; the languid irony and cosmopolitanism of Gore Vidal are celebrated; and a discussion of the fatwah issued against Salman Rushdie prompts a meditation on the West's misunderstood encounter with Islam. Along the way, a refined and knowledgeable palate samples offerings from, amongst others, P. G. Wodehouse, Arthur Conan Doyle, Dorothy Parker, F. Scott Fitzgerald, T. S. Eliot, Christopher Isherwood, Anthony Powell, Saul Bellow, Alan Bloom, Philip Larkin and Patrick O'Brian, and dethrones the overrated, conspicuous among them such figures as Tom Wolfe and Isaiah Berlin. / Christopher Hitchens is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and the author of the best-selling God Is Not Great. His books published by Verso include The Trial of Henry Kissinger, No One Left to Lie To, The Missionary Position, Unacknowledged Legislation, The Parthenon Marbles, Hostage to History, and more." - Publisher.

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.

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

Unacknowledged Legislation: Writers in the Public Sphere

ISBN-Nummer:

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. Wodehouse, through Philip Larkin and Patrick O'Brien, to Walter Mosley, Tom Wolfe, Gore Vidal and Susan Sontag.
