The contributions investigate the ways in which numerous institutions of English literature shape the literary field. While they cover an extensive historical field, ranging from the Early Modern period to the 18th century to the contemporary, they focus not only on literary texts, but also on extra-literary ones, including literary prizes, literary histories and anthologies, and highlight the various ways in which these negotiate the processes that constitute the literary field. All contributions assert that there is no such thing as literature outside of institutions. Great emphasis is therefore put on different acts of mediation.

For centuries, women who aspired to write had to enter a largely male literary tradition that offered few, if any, literary forms in which to express their perspectives on lived experience. Since the nineteenth century, however, women writers and readers have been producing "disobedient" counter-narratives that, while clearly making reference to the original texts, overturn their basic assumptions. This book looks at both canonical and non-canonical works, over a variety of fiction and nonfiction genres, that offer counter-readings of familiar Western narratives. Nancy Walker begins by probing women's revisions of two narrative traditions pervasive in Western culture: the biblical story of Adam and Eve, and the traditional fairy tales that have served as paradigms of women's behavior and expectations. She goes on to examine the works of a wide range of writers, from contemporaries Marilynne Robinson, Ursula Le Guin, Anne Sexton, Fay Weldon, Angela Carter, and Margaret Atwood to precursors Caroline Kirkland, Fanny Fern, Mary De Morgan, Mary Louisa Molesworth, Edith Nesbit, and Evelyn Sharp.

Benjamin Grahams Bestseller ist ein großartiger Investment-Ratgeber und der Klassiker zum Thema "Value Investing". Jedes Kapitel dieser neu aufgelegten Fassung wird durch aktuelle Kommentare von Jason Zweig ergänzt und erweitert. Eine Vielzahl an Fußnoten erklärt und veranschaulicht den noch heute gültigen Text. Seit Erscheinen der Erstausgabe 1949 ist Benjamin Grahams Buch der meistgeschätzte Wegweiser, wenn es um Investments geht. Der Grund dafür ist seine zeitlose Philosophie der Anlage in Wachstumswerte, die den Anlegern dabei hilft, mögliche Stolpersteine zu erkennen und langfristige Erfolgsstrategien zu entwickeln, mit denen sie wirklich Gewinne machen. Benjamin Grahams Klassiker, der seit über 60 Jahren gültig ist, basiert auf grundlegenden Erkenntnissen und der Markterfahrung vieler Jahre. In diesem Buch werden sowohl der konservative als auch der spekulative Anleger berücksichtigt, wobei für beide Gruppen angemessene Strategien zur Aktienauswahl vorgestellt werden, die auf dem Prinzip einer intelligenten Depotstruktur beruhen. Benjamin Graham ist eine der Legenden der Wall Street und Begründer der modernen Wertpapieranalyse. Graham lehrte an der Columbia University in den Jahren von 1928 bis 1957 und managte außerdem die Graham-Newman Partnership, eine frühe Art des heutigen Investmentfonds. Graham etablierte heute so selbstverständliche Kennzahlen wie das Kurs-Gewinn-Verhältnis. Mit seinen beiden Büchern Der intelligente Investor und Wertpapieranalyse wurde er zum Bestsellerautor und gelangte zu Weltruhm.

"All narratives undergo some form of narrative transmission. Narratives of Transmission examines the storytelling process structured between the fictional universe of the text and the reader. By focusing on narratives that dramatize the medium of their telling--letters, diaries, memoirs, transcribed oral narrations, and the editorial prefaces that enframe them--the present volume uncovers dynamics of textuality that have long been overlooked by critics who have pursued the interpretation of narrative works at the expense of the processes of signification operations in narration. By studying these special cases of narrative transfer, Bernard Duyfhuizen brings the reader to a clearer understanding of how the acts of transmission and framing within the literary text can affect the production of meaning." "Drawing on the theories of Gerard Genette, Roland Barthes, Mikhail Bakhtin, Seymour Chatman, Susan Lanser, and Peter Brooks, Duyfhuizen develops the first extended reading of the code of communication in narrative poetics and of the force exerted by the medium of transmission on the reader's structuration of the literary text. This provocative study of the different acts and conditions of narrative transmission establishes a new ontological plane for the study and interpretation of prose fiction." "By examining the various narrational filters through which a story must pass, Narratives of Transmission uncovers the interpretively rich problematics of narrative textuality." "Duyfhuizen's study goes beyond narratological description to provide interpretive readings that engage the mirrored play of transmission metaphors and metonymies in both the stories and the discourses of narrative fiction from the classical epic to the postmodern. These exemplary readings reveal, on the one hand, the power of transmission devices in the production of a particular version of the narrated events and the inescapable gap between the object of representation and its textual representation; while on the other hand, these readings display the negotiation of the different acts of reading encoded in the text and engaged at the outer frame by the actual reader." "After an introductory chapter detailing the theory of narrative transmission, Duyfhuizen explores the dynamics of transmission and transgression in epistolary fiction, the problematics of transmitting the "self" in diary fiction, and the inclusion of letters, diaries, and other documents in hybrid narratives of transmission. He then turns to the questions surrounding the framing devices of editorial prefaces and notes paratextually included in the fiction. Lastly, Duyfhuizen considers the textual dynamics of dialogism in narratives of transcribed oral narrations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
